DVT80111: Sony A7 with a different badge.

"This Leica is not a serious tool. It's meant more for people to show off not really for photography."

So are opinions

Really good news for the analog industry and supporters (myself included). Lets hope this is a fruitful endeavor.

ScottD1964: Really Canon, an 18-55 f4-5.6 is an upgrade? You need to be looking at Fuji's all metal "kit lens" 18-55 f2.8-4 if you're thinking your new plastic lens is an upgrade.

Good grief.

All the negativity aside, with todays modern cameras having very good high ISO performance Canon sees it fit to make a smaller/lighter lens at the sacrifice of a third stop for the target buyers of these cameras and kit lenses. I'm sure Canons research is prudent. It has yet to be proven but this new lens could also perform better optically.

On article Sony SLT a99 II Review (1497 comments in total)

Let me preface this and state I am not a fan of Sony Cameras, however I must say that IMHO this is the most well rounded DSLR in the market offering quite an impressive array of capabilities in the right hands. Fans of Sony or the SLT cameras shouldn't take the DPR review as the end all be all. Buy it, rent it, try it and make your own conclusions. I like to think this camera still possesses a smidgen of Minolta heritage and innovation, and possibly the last endeavor for the A mount... certainly hope not but if it is, it is quite a way to bow out.

On article Throwback Thursday: Minolta's prosumer DiMAGE 7 (177 comments in total)

I've always liked the design of the 7 series and later A1/A2 cameras from Minolta. I briefly owned an A2 and found it to be a very capable camera. The manual zoom was a very nice change from the electronic zooms such as the one on my Nikon Coolpix 8700 etc. Thanks for another great throwback!

I believe the bottom line is; if we live on this planet, and most of us do, we are susceptible to the splendors and fury of nature.

Ernest M Aquilio: Still using my X100 daily, I'm not letting it go. I would upgrade but the xtrans sensor array doesn't do it for me, and I use LR so I'd have to get another developer to get the most out of these files and I really am opposed to doing such. The (S) and (T) and now (F) are certainly capable, but the sensor in the original to me is quite charming and having used it so much I know exactly what to expect from it. Thanks for the throwback!

I, for a brief time owned an X-Pro 1 and borrowed a X100T, couldn't manage the aesthetic I wanted as easily as I can with the Bayer sensor from X100. Its just a preference, I know the X100(S)(T)(F) are excellent cameras I just prefer the original. Plus 12mp is more than adequate for my print sizes A2 or A3.

iamatrix: It's so ironic - I have been shooting digital for years and have become increasingly OCD about color, dynamic range, and sharpness in search of perfection. Then my wife buys me a instax film camera last year - not too sharp, not very color accurate, crushed blacks etc. So this switch goes off in my head, the perfection I have been searching for isn't perfection at all, but the beauty of analog photography, a truly imperfect perfection ;)

Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it.

Awesome! I just received one this Christmas to replace an older model that had broken last year. Such a fun camera and the tangibility is an exciting part of the process.

I enjoy being a dark lord of the Sith, I can come to comments section about any Leica product and gain more power from all the hate breeding. Thanks

It is quite apparent, based on a majority of the comments, that some would complain about being hung with a new rope.
