Nikoniano: Why "particularly Instagrammers"? Because they don't have zooms and climb on the tree for selfies? How do you know you don't harm the tree during the night shot? Just curiosity.. :-)

@Monochrom
other types of analog/digital/rifle shooters are not narcists?

On article RIP Lightroom 6: Death by subscription model (1633 comments in total)

Everyone wants to get money, continuosly possibly. Just give us your money, give us your money day and night, when you don't shoot, when you sleep, when your camera is broken, all the time with a subscription. Yes you can switch on and off, at our conditions. LR was a good choice for many of us. Was. This is greed. And I will be happy with my photo just OOC. Bye bye, harvest money from the pros ;-)

Can be the modernity but I strive to follow all this "virtual" photography, where latitude is artificial, focus is stacked, eyes are opened, bokeh is artificially rebuilded, photos are on the clouds...

Why Sony vs Sony? Why not Sony vs a Nikon mirrorless? Why? Heh... Ahem... ;-)

Nikoniano: Don't know, invested too much in building a decent Nikon 1 equipment and now must get rid of it and start again at higher level? This mirrorless FF will be probably impossibly expensive, go back to old reflex bodies when used to Nikon 1 it's a stress. Indeed I was hoping for an affordable APS-C mirrorless body (a Nikon 2 system, also with a longer focal distance) or a serious Nikon 1 body (the J5 or V3 wasn't that bad).. But it's their strategic choice, have luck! Now I'm playing with a Ricoh GR that give me portability & quality, losing flexibility and speed. We'll see when, what and how!

Yeah, with that little camera (V1) I took some of my best shoots, it's a shame to see the brand dismantle the line and start a new mirrorless system aimed to pros only. It will be a niche product (despite finest technology) also, because the big money comes from the huge number of hobbists imho, not from the 'mirrorlesser' slice out of the pro users group.

The camera is aimed at the professionals (middle age, overweighted, beard, a taste for crufty mirrored insanely heavy cameras). In such a field 1 out of 100 are females. And we have just 32 pictures.

Peeling sensor on a 5k camera??? Oh lol, get a FF Sony sensor!!! Replace them for free. Cut prices. Cut prices. Cut prices.

Hey Nikon, make more cameras instead, mirrorless possibly...

Nikon just focalize and do the 1 system the right way, with few powerful releases, it will work! By the time, I will wait you (with a new high quality Ricoh GR II, to complete my Nikon 1 system). Cheers.

6000$ for a digital camera with no display? Must try to put some tape on the display in the rear of my consumer camera and see if it is Zen or just foolish. :-)

Done...

I cannot understand all this. If the privacy of the persons should be preserved, so the life of a street photographer becomes more and more though in name of a reason, this stupid thing is just another european useless, sadic restriction; so we cannot portrait people, cannot place tripod, cannot picture to builds... What the next? Must we turn back to colors & canvas? Idiotic!

Nikoniano: Sorry, the cameras are beautiful, but the price is absolutely unreal, considering the quick obsolescence in the hardware today: it is impossible (or stupid?) to pay that much, also for a legend. Toys for rich people.

and by the way, my opinion is that the demand it's low because the cost of the camera, not because the poor appeal of the old-style rangefinders. Few people can afford these cameras. If in a dream the price of a Leica magically low you'll can see if the people don't understand that appeal: you cannot biuld sufficient cameras for the demand.

Yep I got the concept, It's like a Ferrari, it is a unique item. I just say it's a very high price (and it is). And, like top end guitars, top end laptops and cars and so on these are more like precious toys than instruments (and they are). And these wonderful cameras are for rich people because if you're a poor man no rangefinder (like it or not).

Obvius if you want a Leica there's no alternative. But there's no need to find excuses, If you like it buy a Leica and enjoy!

@Carbon, from dpreview:
"..In a way the X-Pro1 has no direct competitors; its optical viewfinder and traditional stills-focused control layout sets it apart from the likes of the Sony NEX-7, and of course it's much less expensive than the camera it physically most resembles, the Leica M9-P, and operates rather differently too..".
