User0127324968: Give me one logical reason to leave the Fujifilm xe3 and buy the Leica CL!

This is nonsense. Jaguar doesn't have defects, those are features. It might seem weird, but all of those features helps you enjoy your Jag more. That is because when it actually starts, you feel exhilarated and happy. :)

Joking aside, Jaguar makes good cars. They certainly aren't as bulletproof as Toyotas (or Subaru), but given good maintenance they are reliable and provide phenomenal driving experience.

eazizisaid: Beautiful camera. If I had the money it'll go straight to Leica's pocket. Beautiful design, beautiful attention to details. You get what you pay for no matter what other people think... because if they had enough money too, they'll spend it on a Leica.

I consider it stupid to spend money on a Leica stuff. Simple qiud pro quo just doesn't tick the right boxes. But it is definitely fun to bicker about it!
I would buy optical instruments from them tho (microscopes, geodesic equipment, etc).

"Go on, get a Nikon. You know you want it." epic!

Re to User0127324968

Dude... Please don't compare Jaguar XJ with a Subaru.
Don't even mention them in the same sentence.
Hell, sell the XJ and keep the Subaru and be done with it.
Comment from a Jaguar driver.

mrmut: All this positive comments are not about fanboys. iPhone produces stunning photos, and at least for me personally, I don't ever take a DSL to vacations anymore.

Of course, it is not that you can shoot a catalogue with it, but it is more than capable for normal usage, memories and such, which is how most of the people use it anyways.

But you wouldn't compared a Ferrari and a Smart because it is nonsensical.

MyReality, your comment kind of honors Iph as a fantastic camera, given you compare it with high-quality DSL. Also iPhone is about 140 grams. You literally need to pay me to have me lug my very light ( and also very high-quality DSLR) around.

vjacesslav: Hello,
would You mind if I ask about this square screw? What is it? I´ve just disassembled two Sigmas DP1s but i haven´t found anything similar? Maybe i can find something to substtute it. Is it some glue there or any toher prevention to fix it there? Thanky OYu for any information about it.
Vjacesslav

Sorry for the late reply. I think this crew is for the lens calibration. If you want, and if I have it, you can contact me on my p.m. so I can send it to you. I don't use my dp1 anymore.

mrmut: It is still less useful than the old MacBook pro. Maybe some in Apple think that many adapters look sexy.

The money is not an object for a professional device, but usability and value is. Apple is something I increasingly perceive as Leica. They are an optical company that do produce some beautiful stuff, but when you take in how much those things costs and the value they provide, you see that they actually represent a kind of photographic jewelery. A good example is a camera shake on some of their first sample RAW images from their S2 system (they retracted those in the meantime).

Needs differ. However, each time there is something more to carry, that is one more thing to get forgotten. I use 08 MBP due to its built in FireWire 400 port that I use for fixing industrial PPC machines. Dongles, and FireWire 800 to 400 adapters don't work well, tested. Of course, there are many ports today, and you could argue that one standard port is a holy grail. But just take a look at the mess Apple created with their "creative port addition/deletion". Apple Mini Display Port is the same connection as Thunderbolt, but not all devices work on each other due to different standards. Than, they introduced TB and marketed it as the next big thing. Fine, but they killed it just as it started catching breath. OTOH USB 3.0 and 3.1 are wonderful, fully-backwards compatible standards that work everywhere and are blazing fast. Apple is reinventing the wheel with their cyclical problem solving, ie. with Watch and touch-strip nonsense. And at the same time, MS Surface Book gets launched.

It will be a good camera, and the price is not a big deal for a working professional. Compared to other systems, Oly price is laughable for the quality and portability one gets out of it. Also - E-M1 won't be phased out.

mrmut: The images look really good. The prime/macro lens is very sharp, and depending on the price-point, it might be a killer deal.

Well, I wouldn't might cheap and good 42mm F.18 macro. It would focus faster in macro range than my ZD 50mm F2.0, and it very light. For a bargain price, I would buy it.

mrmut: No SD card reader, no USB ports, missing row of keys and sterile keyboard. LOL.

Tim McClanahan - exactly my point. From usability point of view this is hell. One thing is doing a "big sync" re same ports on all devices and stuff, but just take a look what kid of mess it is. On Iphone no headphone plug, but lightning. On newest notebook - headphone plug, but no USB plug to charge iPhone. Than you have thunderbolt, with square port connector, which not in "fashion" anymore, so you have small USB-C/Thunderbolt port. One needs to leave time for the industry to catch up. This kind of crap is annoying as hell, especially if you are a working professional. In only a few years Jobs died, Apple inflated their product line several hundred percent, making the products less and less usable and upgradeable. Apple is all cute and stuff, but it is like buying a Maserati. A very expensive car that goes relatively well, and looks great, but one you should be thinking to replace it moment when the warranty is out. Not a good investment.

mrmut: In a world where you are expected to produce loads of high-quality high-resolution images instantly, this is a joke. Of course, a professional can make a good image even with a piece of crap, but why would he/she want to? I use iPhone for documenting my family, because it is easy and instant. Torturing myself (or my clients) with something like this seems like masochism.

pnphoto: a really nice reply. Thanks.
Yes, I am in my 30s (35), and currently everything is about speed for me, don't have much time for stuff. However, I do see what you wanted to say. Maybe that will also change for me in 20-30 years.

Feel the need? Because I want to spend rest of my time doing something useful, for example doing sports, or playing with my kid.

So, the procedure is: 1. go and shoot great images, 2. finish images and move on. It is really that simple. Having tools that will enable dong this quickly is essential. This leica is funny in my view. A curiosity with not much real value.

This is from a professional standpoint.

The other thing is hobby, or just playing with photography for fun.

But outside from professional sphere where you need images that will feed you, important is WHAT is on images, not how good those images are. The same is audiophiles - it is nice to have a great audio system, but if you listen what you like, you can do it on a 5USD radio and you will enjoy it.
