HowaboutRAW: So the new Air has no USB-A ports.

That's dumb.

And it uses the new "power" via port system. Also dumb.

Want to bet the battery is glued in and the SSD is soldered to the motherboard, unlike the old Air?

i5 only! Dumb.

Girls, it's handbags at dawn.

If you have a Red Hydrogen One in each hand and hold them as far apart as you can and then go Oooooooooh. You’ll be doing a good impression of a water molecule.

Which seems one of the few things this device could be good at.

The thing that impresses me most about Leica?

Is that really a question?

Innovation. When it comes to the M cameras it is the lack of innovation, the preservation of tradition that appeals to me the most. The M9 was the world's first full frame mirrorless by accident.

@knappe, it's OK, you were not Trolling.

When it comes to cameras I am polyamory (strictly platonic you understand). And no, my M8 is all mine, mine, mine.

CaPi: This is a fun idea for those with ressources to experiment.
Lets call this a smartphone accessory for those using 1500+ Euro or Dollar smartphones ;)
If you are already invested in the lenses.. why not.

Sounds like a typical jealous/bitter response from someone who doesn't have money and doesn't have a £1500+ phone.

Considering (according to recent figues) 1% of the world's population have 50% of its wealth, there are a good deal of people who have lots of money.

princecody: The only innovation I see is price gouging! $2500 is more than reasonable for this camera. $8k is plain ridiculous!

I mean, if Leica's were made in China then expecting £2500 would be more than reasonable.

@HowaboutRAW, Yes, I agree, but no reason to Troll at the same time.

rmexpress22: No 4k raw. Now dual memory card slots. Pure trash.

/sarcasm

Colors look nice. It's otherwise average for a phone camera at above ISO64.

I don't have any egrets either, they have all flown South for the Winter.

panther fan: It's funny how many people dismiss the information because it is in a video. He did a full study and clearly talks about all the limitations of that study.
If DPreview would have done the same thing and give you a written article about it, they wouldn't have got nearly the same hate for it

People who generally look at photos have no or little appreciation of the aesthetic and have no artistic taste. And you want them to pass opinion on your work?

Videos like this are certainly over rated. I, for one, love bokeh and shoot frequently at f1.1 I don't shoot for other people so if Bokeh isn't your thing that's OK.

One thing I think is over rated and in many cases borders on obsessional is sharpness.

Further, people who generally look at photos have no or little appreciation of the aesthetic and have no artistic taste. You want them to pass opinion on your work?

@Clayton, if any was offended or provoked by Oskar’s opinion then they are the textbook definition of a snowflake.
