Wye Photography: As much as I love Leica M cameras, I am not really impressed with the high ISO performance of the M10. My Panasonic TZ100 has (slightly) better noise at ISO 3,200 (converted from RAW, the jpegs suck).

I do not often shoot at this ISO so, really, it isn't much of a problem. But, I did expect better.

@Toni Salmonelli Yes, you are probably right. I am quite happy to provide some proof. I have a few which have similar levels of light and dark. Just because a sensor is FF doesn't means that it is automatically superior. Take the sensor of the Leica Q, and read the dpr review. Banding in pushed shadows on a so called high FF spec sensor just should not happen on such a camera.

I mean light is light. The noise/grain on the sample band photo at ISO 3,200 is poor to say the least. I have better noise from my TZ100 in similar light levels at ISO 3,200 and technically, the noise from the M10 should much much superior to the TZ100 in any light level at ISO 3,200. There may be other reasons such as processing factors.

The point of providing such samples IS to judge the quality of the final image., otherwise there is absolutely NO point in doing so.

Historically it is an interesting photo and article. The ethnocentrism of dpreview is rather frustrating.

cosinaphile: samsung is run by fools... the battery issue ....poor testing leading to failures in washing machines , and n abandoning the nx line when it was just gaining notice for its excellent sensor..... what a shame they didnt at least try to rebrand it by licensing a legacy name like so many lenses have done , ive never liked the ring of the samsung name its a clumsy word and does not scream quality

nikon makes the same blunder with the coolpix moniker , just a silly name or fuji excellence diminished with the stupid name finepix

they are not all bad i think panasonic using lumix name was a smart move

@cosinaphile, I'm just going back to my High Castle and await the apocalypse.

Roniflex: 6500$ for a camera that will be obsolete in 5 years, like any other digital camera, it's a bit hard.

Obsolete is marketing thinking.

@cosinaphile Oh dear, you are rather neurotic as well. Take a pill and calm down.

I have no problem with being a closet fascist at least I'll be on the white side come the actual Orwellian state. You are right about Thatcher. British industry had been in decline for some time, she just killed it. Then proceeded to sell state owned business to the people who already owned it. We survived Hitler, we survived Thatcher, we survived Bush/Blair and we will survive Trump/May.

I do feel sorry for the working class, they are just to intellectually challenged to realise their thraldom.

The next few years are going to be very interesting and I hope the lower echelons of american societal strata do not bear the brunt of Trump's failure.

You should do well to concentrate on therapy, namely, making pictures and art. It is actually very good. The picture of the dogs in the car, in particular, is just really superb.

Theresa May the Force be with you!

@cosinaphile, you have to stop being so bi-polar. Thatcher was the worst thing to happen to Britain since Hitler. But she wasn't ALL bad. Having the balls to sanction the recovery of the Falklands is at least some redemption. Despite being appalled by her policies I can at least give credit where its due.

You read too much into things. Get back on those meds

I never said I am going to watch Trump destroy your country gleefully or happily. I never mentioned any emotion. You really are in a bad mood. Better make an appointment with, what do you americans call them, ah, your shrink. You are delusional and have a furtive imagination that is obviously divorced from any semblance of reality. What is the term for that, ah, paranoid schizophrenic.

I will watch from my little island as it's all going to go breasts topside on your side. Your working class will find themselves minus health care, welfare and jobs. You desperately need workers rights and free healthcare, come and join the EU.

@arsinaphile, a little touchy aren't we? Forgotten to take your meds?

I said, and I quote "I quite like Donald" and that is quite far removed from "devotion". I really think you need a dictionary.

I was never a supporter of that Witch Thatcher at least she was the only one with the balls to sort out those argies.

My guess is that your irascible petulance is only due to the fact you are about to be royally screwed by Trump and you know it.

I am just going to sit here on my little island and watch it all fall apart.

Enjoy!

PS. I thank God I DON'T live in america.

My Charvel guitar is made in China and it is the best instrument I have owned. Even my die hard Gibson/Fender/made in USA friend was impressed. The quality of the instrument is just superb.

The point is the Chinese can produce top quality goods.

Wye Photography: Perhaps the rest of the world isn't really interested in this for-the-rest-of-the-world non-event.

@photomedium, Perhaps you should read the article again and my comment as it was referring to the inauguration ONLY and not what happens after.

Actually, I quite like Donald and of course what he will do in office may affect my life and perhaps countless others. I do not think Donald will lead us into war unlike how the warmongers and war criminals Bush and Blair did. A war and countless deaths based on a total and complete LIE. Have you forgotten recent history?

When Bill left office the US had a surplus of around 400 billion. Bush squandered that to an almost equal deficit plus murdering a few million in the process and created more terrorism.

Donald isn't going to screw it up to that degree. I don't think you have much to worry about and can get on and enjoy your photography.
