miggylicious: i would understand not having some essential features like mechanical shutter, tilt-screen, ibis and evf as it was designed to be very compact. but a camera with zero grip is a huge deal breaker for me. i've owned the fantastic rx100m3 and it would always slip in my hand (never complained though as it made the camera truly compact and pocketable). but this is an interchangeable lens camera where almost all the lenses available are gigantic and monstrous. even the new 45/2.8 is not exactly pancake in size.

side note: im not going to mention the contrast-detect only AF until there are valid reviews when the camera comes out.

They have two different grips for this camera: https://www.sigma-global.com/en/cameras/fp-series/accessories/

It is a Cine camera firstly and a Cine camera in a rig don't need a default grip

Keith Meinhold: Consider that this MF camera is smaller and lighter than the 5D IV it is quite an accomplishment, the Fuji is dramatically larger and heavier. There are some tradeoffs for that. Personally the size / weight is a huge advantage. Alas, none are even close to my budget.

You compare primes to zooms! *shrug*

It is not overpriced. It is you that do not have the money.

More sensible move than releasing urban spesial editions.

Bashir Lunat: Please tell me one good reason why Leica should not have made this camera.
I dont see anything wrong with it. It is a choice offered by Leica. Take it or reject it.
Simple.

I see Leica is issuing firmware to update CL and SL to work with 3rd party L mount lenses. Hmmm...

Wrong link:

As we were told at CP+, the SA-L and EF-L adapters can be used with 29 existing Sigma lenses, including 23 full-frame lenses and 6 APS-C lenses from the Global Vision lineup. This brings the total number of supported L-mount lenses to 40, including the 11 DG Art primes and and native L-mount lenses. At the time of the initial announcmenet Sigma said the adapter would work with 'any L-mount camera body.' Sigma is now saying that the MC-21 won't work with existing Leica L-mount camera bodies due to 'specifications [that] have changed.'

Why is it that Leica went into a L mount alliance and then it turns out their L mount cameras csnnot be used with Sigma lenses.

Leica CL is outdated.

Daniel Lauring: I don't get using an optically inferior lens to create an effect when you can do the same thing, in post, with a filter, unless it is just about saving money on a newer, better lens.

I get it, For that reason, not to have to do it in post. Besides it can be more organic and less digital.

Fotograafje: Any manufacturer launching a premium / high-end compact without evf (these days) is missing the spot. Of course lacking an evf is doen't mean it's a bad camera. But a viewfinder makes you compose better images and makes you part of the picture before you press the shutter.
What would an evf cost extra?

Anyone still obsessing about EVFs is missing the point... Do dinosaurs still walk the earth?

jim bennett: "For Android users the camera also includes NFC, which can be used to set up the Wi-Fi connection more quickly." The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus also have NFC, does the GR II work with those phones also?

@Butler That is how it is to live in a dictatorship.

monkeybrain: I had no idea such large planes were used for dumping retardant. Makes sense of course and impressive flying.

If the planes are too big the turnaround gets long, so it doesn't always makes sense in firefighting. But as they are dumping chemicals and not water I guess it is the best solution. We saw two firefighting planes "landing" on the sea not far from the beach and taking off with water to fight a local fire. Impressive sight.

That cannot have been healthy to get sprayed with.

PrintLabGuy: I want a pocketable camera with full frame sensor, 35mm equivalent lens, EVF/OVF, and NO LCD or AA filter. No LCD would save on weight/size and increase battery time. Actually, the Sony RX1r fits this description, so if they could stuff that all into a GR body and keep the awesome menu system, I'd be happy.

Nice to have deep & big pockets (both meanings apply)

In reply to:

junk1: Too bad companies such as Sigma do not open production in USA (more people would buy made in USA lenses, and Sigma would not have the exchange rate issues).
Kodak has a mile of empty buildings in Rochester, NY (and has the workforce - experienced and new college grads).

You mean more Americans would buy? I'd prefer products from Japan

"mixture of on and off-record disclosures"

Does this mean that all is on-record for dpreview?
