km25: Shooting with Leica, no 1/8000, no high speed motor drive, no auto multi points program and AF. The leicas work best, my opion with flim. so when you push the button you know what you will get, no looking at the LCD, there is one now. After you process or it processed you are rarely surprised. It is often a second camera, for the slow intimate times, were the sutter noise is very importan, like a movie set.

Me too, then I would buy the Fuji x-t1...+ Lenses.

Daniel Lauring: I do wonder why none of the Windows ultrabooks use the latest integrated Intel Iris graphics though??? Does Apple have a lock on the processor? Is it too expensive? Do they think Windows users aren't sophisticated enough to know the difference?

Same here? Very strange. Asus has one. It is the only one I know of. If I were going to spend 2000 bucks on a new ultrabook I would pick the Asus over this. It is spec wise equal to the Macbook pro 13.

Valiant Thor: $1949 for the high-end model (8GB RAM 512 SSD)!
Please.

The MacBook pro killed the MacBook air. 2 hundred bucks more and you get the Retina display, mobile CPU, with the iris graphics. I'm a die hard Windows guy. But, really Mac is a very good product spec wise. Even though I am a windows guy. I picked up the 13" macbook pro for editing video and photos. It is a joy to use. This product from Microsoft is not on the same level.

Macbook pro is running a full mobile CPU with Iris graphics... Wayyyy more power for the power user for sure. The 13" macbook pro would walk all over this thing.

I'm not impressed. Even if the story is compelling.

On article Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review (2257 comments in total)

Doesn't really matter to me. I think it is funny as all get out. Of course I have never even looked at a leica past the price tag. So I would not buy one for sure.
Will defiantly make me look at the people that use them a little different now.
Like, look at that guy using a Leica he he he...

On article Nikon to offer D600 replacements if 'spots' continue (175 comments in total)

Kinda par for the course. At least they finally got pressed into doing something. I bought a Pentax K-5 that had a faulty AF module and never got it fixed. Pentax just ripped off thousands of customers.

ovlov: Nikon's quality control isn't even good enough for the Chinese.

I live in Thailand and the Chinese are the beat photographers I have ever seen. These high end buyers not only know the product like the back of there hand they have the money to buy the best. Something I do not see from American tourists here. It has definitely switched to the Chinese. Europeans, Americans, and the rest take a back seet to these guys and gals now.
And I am an American. Very strange to see the power change. But, believe me it already has...

These new cameras are just amazing. Cannot wait for the review.

I'm a minority and Canon doesn't care for sure, but I have started complaining with my wallet. Over one year now with no new Canon products. And I feel I have not lost a thing. Others are filling the gap nicely. No problem for me.

After reading this, I just realized how far behind I am. I don't even own a digital phone.

ffnikclif: I'm speechless.I would like to say I would love this job, but I doubt I'd be good at it. And this is a job you have to be very, very, good at. My hat is off to Mr. Bonner.

My thoughts exactly. Funny how people like different things. I would hate a job like that. And he excels at it.

The sad part is they will be overrun with people wanting to sell a photo.

You know it is not just this kind of photoshop work. It is in all photography now. Honestly it is 40% pic and 60% photoshop. And I am not criticizing. It's lovely work.
I do wildlife photography as a hobby. Do you think most of the pics you see are what came out of the camera? Not by a long shot.
