Tower: Why people to blame the software. LR never as good as native camera software. I means LR could not be better then the Phocus or DPP.

Yep, both the new and old Nikon software, and a many more.

People use a camera manufacturer's software?

The horror. The horror.

Tharaphita: does this apply to standalone too?

I believe the fourth paragraph says no, CC only.

InTheMist: I'm looking forward to Barney's extensive review of the Leica Q. After an initial rush of enthusiasm, I'm slowly, haltingly, and with regret, retracting my hand away from my wallet.

Yeah, I'm just not big on the 28mm thing.

lxcellent: Can someone please explain the 28mm lens choice by Leica? It seems so counter to what they have done in the past. I would expect a 35mm or even a 50mm. In fact, isn't easier to design an optically perfect 50mm than 28mm? It seems like Leica could have gone with a 50mm and one could add a screw on adapter to make it wider or more tele. (Which I realize is sacrilege for Leica.) What am I missing folks? The 28mm seems so unusual.

My understanding is this: Leica's long-standing principle is that you can see subjects walking into the frame through a rangefinder viewfinder, the crop lines representing what would be captured by the film or sensor. They tried to keep this principle when using the EVF in 35mm or 50mm 'crop' modes. Interestingly, the crop mode does not throw away any data, you can uncrop it or adjust it after importing into Lightroom.

That said, I'm still skeptical of 28mm, to be honest.

SkyTamer: I can't just overlook the Leica red dot in this article product pictures being off by 1 or 2 millimeters clockwise. Is just a small issue, however on a Leica, which I personally expect to be considered unacceptable by their product standards.

Some of the other reviews up use the same camera with the skewed dot, but most do not, and the dot is properly oriented in the others.

Looks like a prototype issue.

Digital Imaging Technician: Whyyyyyy 28mm? This is nothing but a strange focal length for a non-ILC (yes, I'm looking at you too Ricoh GR) that Leica has not historically embraced. If there was a 35mm version I would buy this. Please Leica, it's a dream come true, but 7mm to wide... :-(

I'm not a fan of 28mm either. I soooooo wish it was 35 with 50 frame lines.

Thanks for making ne aware of this photographer. A quick google brought up many interesting stories of her struggle with the technical aspects of her craft. It makes it all very human.

Well said Barney!

Pretty much my feelings put in words. You should be an editor or something.

Anyway, I'm still not sure how I feel about that 28mm lens. I actually like how they implemented it* but I'm a bit mixed on having only 14 MP at a 35mm crop.

*if I understood right, frame lines only, cropped in Lightroom, where you can adjust it later. It's consistent with the Leica philosophy of seeing what's entering the frame through the viewfinder. Have I understood right?

If it were a 35mm, I would buy it instantly.

28mm, despite crop mode - not so much.

Why?

In the video, if you're that close to a tiger with a 105mm lens, you have bigger things to worry about than getting your camera wet!

I really could use one of these, though.

On article Sony rides wave of US Mirrorless sales surge (733 comments in total)
In reply to:

InTheMist: I've been down on mirrorless because my first was an x100s which is a slow piece of junk.

Two years later, I tried a Nikon 1. All I can say is that if Nikon was able to use the same technology in a camera with a large sensor, that's not dog-ugly, they would be on to something special. It's QUICK!

I waited until the J5, gambling on rumors that used a, new *ahem* Sony sensor. Very nice, but it would be nice to have more options for depth of field control.

But there are more benefits to a smaller sensor if the noise doesn't bother you. Instead of "f/8 and be there" you can set "f/4 and shoot more".

I know I'm going to catch flack for this, but the totally silent shutter and 10+ FPS can really make the difference between 'the decisive moment' and 'just missed it'.

dcolak: Dynamic range of only 12 stops? In 2015? WTF?!

The 1dX has less than 12, so it should be good.

InTheMist: Hydration?

Mindshift gear has a hydration pocket - that's critical. There is no way I'm walking an hour or two with just water bottles stuffed in pockets.

I usually take an emergency overnight set when I go far off the beaten path, even if I have no plans to stay overnight. I've had far too many close calls, so this could be for me.

I'm really tending towards Mindshift, though.

Thanks, Jason for the clarification.
