idefixx: Dpreview is making less and less efforts of hiding its nature as a PR platform

I think Fujica shoots with a black box camera made of recycle paper, and his images are embedded on his memories, no need to use film nor waste on chemicals to develop, only the chemicals he sniffs...

Superka: Digital all look almost the same. Nothing interesting. My Panasonic LX100 is even better! https://www.flickr.com/photos/superka_01/

Hasselblad was much better when using film.

Not sure were you are looking or how you are looking, but is not comparable , (some of them at least). By the way were are your pictures taken? Looks very much like Bucharest in some places. Thanks!

Triplet Perar: Cuba still produces those cars from 1940s and 1950s?

They don't produce them, it's what's left form that era.

Those are nice tips if you want to shoot what everyone does. Not bad in doing tourism, but is not what I will call photography tips. And yes if you go to those places be prepare to pay a couple of dollars for every portrait you take.

And yes those pictures of the old wrinkle woman with a cigar is not day to day people is for tourists :)

Robert Evagelista: It is a good sign more and more Photographers penetrate the Management.
This surely be helpful to the Company As engineers (I am also an Engineer ) can loose perspective on what the purpose of the product.

He is like an engineer with phd in physics or something like that.

He is actually a manager that got into photography, look at his credentials.

I don't need this camera, but bundle it with the 20-40mm and it will be a wonderful portable kit :) GAS always coming when you least expect it :)

The Name is Bond: I try to shoot for the crop. And so...

I would have been a 50mm guy too, but with high-rez and low-noise sensors these days, I think a large aperture 35mm is a sensible choice.

I would even choose a 28mm if I could only get bokeh out of it (enough bokeh, that is). So for now it's a 35 at the largest aperture that doesn't compromise IQ too much.

You can get Bokeh out of a 28mm :) you just need to shoot wide open and not that far from the subject :)

In reply to:

Terry Breedlove: Never makes sense to me when you buy such and expensive camera and then pair with such and expensive lens. To get such poor images. Why not just go to a flea market or yard sale and buy on of those first generation Kodak point and shoots. Save your money for a really nice trip to some place exotic and take horrible pictures while there.

By the way, i am Leica user, and will never even think about buying this lense, i found it stupid, but respect those who buy it, considering for less you can get the 28mm 2.8 elmarit which is small and has amazing image quality.

Because cameras are also like cars, an object of desire. It's an experience. Why people spend 350k on a car? When 80k one, even 40k one has luxury, drives well, and takes you from point a to b. You could even get cheaper cars that basically do the same as the 300k but without the bling bling. You think the owners of those cars with 1000 horse power are driving in a racing track?

So sometimes with cameras is the same, if people can afford it what's the problem? Yes I am a bit envious sometimes, won't deny it. But is life :)

Bombastic: Fuji has been teaching Leica how to get it done right.
Again.
Again.

And again..

Leica and Fuji user, yes as much as Fuji is an awesome camera, they don't compare. The images I get from my Q and M are much better then the ones coming from my Fuji. Maybe placebo? I can't tell, but you are welcome to look through my Flickr and blog to make up your own mind :)

This is not what I will call portable, for that size just better bring a full frame Sony better image quality and with the zeiss 55mm similar size.

If not why just not bring the Olympus 12mm 2.0 and Panasonic 25mm 1.4, price of the lenses combined will have been around same price and give you a wider reach on a small size :)

Deardorff: Long way to go before they even begin to match what Fuji has.

It's funny how people complain and complain about cameras and equipment but have nothing to show in exchange. No galleries, no posts, no links to websites or blogs :)

If you think fujis are better good for you :) indeed buying a leica might be silly and stupid considering the price, but after you use one you will really understand what is all about. and if you are talking about image quality the m240 kills the fujis, at least all fujis xt1 and below, can no tell about v2 since I never use one long enough. I have a Fuji x70 which she really like and found amazing for the size, but the m and q, Ian just so much better in all aspects except size.

Yep I was go to buy 3, one for each family member, but now that they are going to be built in China I will save the money :)

I also have one of these. It's great to break up the ice when doing street portraits. People love having their pictures given to them right away. Actually I only use it that way, when shooting on the streets and having to approach subjects that are not verybfund of their pictures been taken :)

alcaher: Poverty, war, tragedy, portraits, selfies etc thats the common denominator in these photos. Showing all those pictures the magazine is going to make alot of money

What's there else to show? Flowers and cats? It's life, it's mostly full of tragedies... get use to it and enjoy the ride:)
