Ilia Snopchenko: Looks like Panasonic hangs out with Leica too much, the overpricing disease is apparently contagious... :)

These are not Leica optics... It's a badge.

Jefftan: $300 is only the first 1 time fee
upgrade to future version only $99

This is a way better deal than forever $10 per month

It is an excellent product. Even if same price I would choose Capture One

If budget is your thing then just upgrade every 2 years to reduce the cost significantly. Try doing that with CC.

But more important is the fact that you can just decide to stop upgrading at any point, and continue to use the software that you've bought and own forever.

M Jesper: To everyone impressed with the corners, notice how the images are all 19MP while there is a 24MP sensor in there. So we're not actually seeing the corners. ;-) But yea it looks good.

Lol forgot about that. But if that boggles your mind already, then i think you should have that looked at. ;-)

I am quite curious to see just how much distortion there is in the Raws, there is bound to be quite a bit of loss with a lens like this. But hey if it works.

Astrotripper: Looks pretty good. I was expecting very poor corner performance considering larger sensor. Especially considering some of Canon's 1-inchers are not particularly impressive.

But this looks good.

In reply to:

Dante Birchen: All shots are F2.8 or F4. Why no F2.2? and what happens at F16?

Why does it say 16mm in the exif of some shots? Why does it do exif at all?

Leica lenses don't have any electronic contacts aside from a barcode, so there is no real aperture data. There will probably have to be a firmware update for the body to identify the new barcode, and with that the focal length etc.

In reply to:

PhotoKhan: Relentless great images with pleasant contrast and beautifully mapped colors, an overall "right" feel all over the images, even in such a low-tier camera like this one.

This is Canon and if it is the price to pay for not "innovating" in areas that help real Photography in subsidiary ways, well...so be it.

I, for one, love the trade-in.

Especially after being processed 'to taste' ...

In reply to:

ShatteredSky: So, still any complaints about the size and price of the new Olympus primes? (not that I don'tappreciate lower prices, weight and size)

Honestly i consider that one 'surface', the thing with digital sensors is that it uses cover glass and microlenses in front of the actual photosites. There is nothing 'in front' of film to disturb it.

People have dramatically improved the performance of Sony A7 bodies with M-mount glass just by replacing the sensor's cover glass with something thinner (professionally). Leica does even more, with the microlenses in particular, but who knows what else.

Gesture: You do a great job Carey but this X'ed "to taste" language is pretentious and unnecessary.,

Great idea, leave out the part that actually matters..

I can't imagine what could be considered pretentious about it, i can only imagine it's a misunderstanding about its meaning.

Film doesn't have layers, so it doesn't matter at what angle the light hits it, unlike the many issues that come with digital.

But i hope you're not suggesting switching to film. ;-)

ps. Milvus works on analog Nikon F bodies too!

The way Leica lenses are designed doesn't work very well with 'normal' sensors, especially for wide-angles, so you'd need a Leica body too. Even within their own line-up the M performs better with M lenses than the SL.

And their 24/1.4 isn't exactly cheap either.

With these manual focus lenses material and built quality is a big part of the cost, especially when it has to carry the Zeiss Milvus name. They are metal not just on the outside but every part of the inside too. Which is what makes it heavy. And the essential 'buttery smooth focus' with these doesn't happen by accident.

Where is this 12mm F0.7 you are referring to?

Link | Posted on Oct 28, 2017 at 11:34 UTC

Imagine taking a nice wide-angle shot with this, if there happens to be a person at a distance near the center of the frame they'll probably think you're spying on them with a tele lens. ^^.
