LensBeginner: As far as I understood it, Leica's strong suit is lenses, not bodies.
Why would one buy an expensive, "ok" body, and then pair it with a "so-so" lens?
Wouldn't it be better to, for instance, adapt an M lens on an A7 body?

Unless it's for "the look"...

not really, people also buy leicas because the shooting experience. The sony might be more advanced but shooting it is completely different...

realmadeira: I am old enough to remember the times when people were talking about size and weight advantages of the mirrorless...

Silly comment. They are still small and portable, the advantage now is that you can make them big if needed....

andyus08: At least Apple do something about it. I own Iphone 6 and it is extremely slow on everything...email, facebook,...all apps. It takes 5 seconds or more to start the app. I thought it was new app couldn't run smooth on old iphone 6.
So for $29, I'll take a chance to replace it because my phone is still in good shape, working fine and I don't see the need for new phone.

I dont see the issue here is much better then the Samsung. My iphone 6s plus is running much better then my wifes samsung bought on the same period...The samsung is a pain to use while my iphone yes is slow sometimes works much better, This is coming from someone who uses both systems. At least they are offering some kind of solution. Also the iphone kept getting updtaes while the samsung stopped over a year ago.

Boky: I bought a brand new iPhone 6 for my daughter who is just starting the high school. After we did the few latest updates, her phone is unusable. It is a brand new phone, a brand new battery, but Apple still slowed it down intentionally in software. It is exactly as slow as my 3-year old company iPhone 6 phone. Straight down criminal...

Even more irritating is their intrusion into our life by downloading 700MB worth of software updates every few nights to both our phones I keep deleting them, Apple keeps downloading them without my consent. I wrote to Apple, asked them to stop downloading their software... nothing! This act is worth of killing the #u$kers slowly... painfully.

Blocked them updates in the router - will sell my daughters' phone on ebay as a brand new phone.

Do you know how to use a phone?

JEROME NOLAS: Yes, let's ban cars, guns, knives, baseball bats!!!

Banning guns wouldn't be a bad idea... Seems like you already have enough problems with it....

Vikas M Gore: Can’t wait to see the set but what’s with the bandages up M10? Some kind apology for using an expensive camera? I’ve found most people don’t know what it is and those who do aren’t filled by duct tape!

Many wont really care if its sony nikon or canon they will just rob it.... But a camera without a brand to be seen, may help in making the camera look like an old film camera, which for many is not of value :)

xPhoenix: Does any real photog shoot this garbage? Poor ergonomics and APS-C performance from a FF sensor, all for the bargain price of $7000. What a joke.

@hipbnotic thanks! To be very honest as much as i like my m240 I am having a very hard time justifying upgrading to the m10 with cameras such as the A7r3 in the market for half the price. I shoot the m240 because of the experience, for some this might be silly, but I shoot for me and once in a while for clients. So if me is the number one reason why get another camera that will not bring me as much joy. I tried the a7ii and it lasted only 2 months with me. Mainly because of my experience with the a7ii I am not really decided about the A7r3, but for the same price of an m10 you can get the A7r3, Zeiss 25mm, and Sony 55mm 1.8, or Voigtlander 40mm 1.2, a beautiful combination :)

kobakokh: if you make exhibition and have not there on your neck Leica, all other same photographers will look to you and will not like your photos. You will be shy... Its a Leica true story. I know some photographers who really do good photos with normal and real cameras but at exhibition always taking one old Leica special bought for that show. Sorry to Leica users, i also have one Leica and 3 Leica lenses. China is a world largest market now in Photography and new chinese photographers also use this trick at own exhibitions - working with Canon and Nikon cameras but show self there just with Leica.

@zigmont funny thing about your comment, is that it seems that people with no galleries nor links to their work are the ones with stronger statements and know it all attitude... And yes I am a Leica user but to be honest sometimes I am a bit ashamed of been called one considering the products sometimes leica put in the market.

tkbslc: Who is gullible enough to buy these Leica products?

Yes tkbslc follow the advice from HowAboutRaw, the master photographer :)

Link | Posted on Dec 1, 2017 at 16:47 UTC

Probably HowAboutRaw already has 3 of these, since the old school new look makes it reproduce colors perfectly.

HowaboutRAW: Good, Leica needed a version of the f/1.4 75mm film era M lens.

That f/2.0 M Leica released a few years ago just isn't great.

@Flruckas I believe you might be right... He might just be lucky to live near bhohoto :)

There is a lot of people, with 1000 euro bags, to put their 25k euro equipment to take pictures of their 10k trips.... I am a Leica user m240 with mostly old lenses, (I love them can complain about them), and wander the Leica forums, you will be surprise how many people have the money to buy not one but two of these...Sadly not me :(

@howaboutraw I do believe you might have all the nice equipment.... But I am pretty sure you don't know how to use it. (Owning equipment doesn't mean you know about photography, anyone can own equipment if they can afford it). Anyways it doesn't really matter, whatever you say is not to be taken seriously considering most of your pictures are probably from the garden behind the house... :) Click click click...

@howaboutraw blablabla and no pictures to backup any claims.... I declare that the xtrans sensor has a resolution equivalent to 150mp. Believe it or not is the true, just because I say so :)

@Howaboutraw I guess Leica marketing has been good on you :) and not I am not asking you to share me raw files, just some images to see what you are saying.
