Definitely a place for a small, fast, good image quality camera for outings just like these. Not what I'd use for sunsets at Delicate Arch or warblers at Magee Marsh, but I like this Fuji camera.

Daft Punk: Getting very bored, very bored indeed, with the constant talk about price.

Unless you live a life of austerity, refusing to own premium brands on a consistent basis, the complaining about the price of a Leica is hypocrisy.

Own a nice watch?

Would choose an Audi over a VW?

Prefer wearing GANT or Hugo Boss over Walmart own brand?

Look at yourself in a mirror and tell me that you dont choose any such thing and yet maybe you are one of these people who gets all steamed up over Leica?

If so, pack it in. It is boring and hypocritical.

Leica is easy to understand. They make unique cameras that work in a unique way. The price, is the price. Get it or don't get it. Its up to you. But no-one is making you buy one.

If people do want one of these unique cameras, then they will pay what is needed to get one. No different to deciding you want to wear a tailor made suit over one off the peg.

So stop bleating about the price and give us all a rest.

Peace. :)

Are you driving a Rolls Royce? If not then price is an issue. You're comments are unnecessary and obnoxious.

Money well spent.

Likely a terrific camera, but happy with the D810. The choices we have are amazing and bewildering.

The good, the bad and the weird. Weird stands out from the crowd.

Nikon, Canon, Olympus - they are all fun to use. The best part of fun is coming home with images I like.

EM1-2 image detail looksvery much as good as the APS-C images, at least up to ISO 1600. Olympus has done a nice job.

I like. Portable, lightweight. Have used the Nikon version for years, love it. This is on my list.

Pretty impressive what a water jet can do. Cut through glass?
What's our shower pressure? Like 30,000 PSI maybe?

Hopefully this is "right sizing" the company.

Can't agree with that.

I like Nikon cameras so I hope they figure it out. Some of the those job cuts should come from the top.

maljo@inreach.com: Interesting:
Battery life is poor compared to my EM1
Price seems stratospheric, will dampen sales (but it's water proof)
Focus tracking is what really needed improving - we wait for that report
Not an automatic upgrade for me
