joelR42: Wait. You an't use the touchscreen to navigate or review images? That seems really odd.

The wheel is much faster, and the dial on top lets you jump 10 images at a time.

That On-Off switch just did it for me. It's a very elegant camera, and almost, ALMOST, makes me want to dive into m4/3 since the pre-SONY and Fuji mirrorless days.

love_them_all: I'm gonna hold on and see what the XT2 is like. I like the range finder form factor but I got no real use with the OVF.

Of course I do know that. Duh. But why pay for something I have no real use of? XT2 suits me better. (And I do own Leica M so I know the pros and cons of a rangefinder OVF)

The CA control seems to be better than expected.

Leica, bring back the film advance lever on your digital cameras :)

CameraLabTester: Lytro just got pawned.

The average user won't care about the difference in tech. It's a nice feature (and at no extra) that users can play with. The experience is the user can play with a focus point and see different parts of the pictures go out of focus, which is fun.

JackM: Why such high shutter speeds? I'm shooting high school football at night and am having great luck at 1/1000 or even 1/800. I think you could have cut your ISO in half or more.

I notice that too. May be he is playing it too safe to get the high shutter speed for the high pixel count.

Overall this article gives me a feeling that the camera CAN do something like this but it is not at the same level as the 1D or 4D series.

Note: I am a happy user of both Sony A7R and Canon 1Dx. I will get the A7RII but would not consider it for this kind of job. There is difference of being able to do something and doing it really well.

It's really Sony that makes legacy lens very usable on the NEX. The 1.5x crop is proven a lot most user friendly vs 2x from the M4/3. Peaking, and zoom in focus are the key. That was 2010.

Later on we have FF, or a choice of speed booster. And now the A7RII lets me use Canon glass with decent AF. Way to go for this universal mount concept.

Metabones - please make an adapter for the SL lenses on the Sony (if it is possible). I am interested in the lenses but not the body. May be I'll just buy an aftermarket Leica name badge and glue it on top of the Sony LOL.

lenseye: Oh I'm going to buy this one as soon as it's on the shelf ... I'm sure my photos will be so much better ... maybe I'll even win a competition or two ...

...and it comes with a contract of using SL images on the cover of TIME magazine.

In reply to:

Rob Sims: Just out of interest, how many different mounts does Leica now have? Quickly I count five different ones:
1. M39 (screw mount)
2. M
3. R bayonet
4. T
5. SL

Both the M39 and M-mount can be adapted to the T-mount and SL-mount (or other mirrorless m43/e-mount...etc) right? But are the the T and SL incompatible with each other?

M39 and R shouldn't count as they are no longer in production by LEICA. If the T and SL are compatible that is a little bit better. However, it seems like they would not make too many primes for this mount to compete against the M mount. I hope I am wrong on this.

I don't really find 28mm interesting enough for me, but it would be nice to see how WA Otus performs.

In reply to:

love_them_all: Sounds tempting. The 2X crop factor is very unfriendly to canon wide lenses. However, the cost of a decent m4/3 body + the speed booster is not cheap. May be it is more like for video people who already own both m4/3 bodies and Canon lenses.

I know. I was saying before the speedbooster. But any how 1.42x is still cropped like APS-c with FF lenses. Not 100% worth it for me.

pfzt: So far i'm not disappointed with the typical dpreview discussion about a new lens for a camera system that nobody here actually owns. It's like discussing a Bugatti Veyron: it's a car and everybody has a car, so he assumes he could say anything about it.

Only the fanboys and the trolls usually frequent the forums on gears they do not own. Once in while you see a real owner who end up being a fanboy or troll anyway...

Just a Photographer: Do you guys that spit on Leica also spit on Mercedes, Audi and BMW because you can only afford a Ford, GM or Fiat?

These camera's are just not meant for you they are focussing on the wealthy.

Who cares that it ain't the best camera around. It still does look sexy and you can still make photo's with it. Just like your Sony's, Nikons and Canon Rebels.

LOL so everybody who may not like this camera has to be "the poor"? And "jealous"? hahaha.

NO, because the Sony is better.

rondhamalam: euw.. the bokeh.. yuck

A lot of the older and cheaper lens got this bokeh. It was actually a design achievement for the engineers to get rid of it. I had a Seagull TLR that cost about $50 back in the days and it got the same kind of bokeh.
