AlanG: If you buy this, the only people who will think you are cool are people you should avoid at all costs.

Deep for the win.

I’ll bet that many who are criticizing this, are the same ones who say people don’t understand the Leica experience.

Felts: Reading any thread about Leica cameras on DPReview is a hilarious sport.

When will the detractors realise that if you have to ask how much, it's probably not the camera for you?

It seems that the major reason to buy a Leica is to say, “I bought a Leica.”

I don’t even need a firm place on which to stand.

monked: The FF focal length equivalent is 2.1 for apsc. Gotta multiply it by crop factor too.

Ah! Thanks, Jack!

Isn’t a 16mm lens, 16mm in FF? I thought there was no crop factor for FF.

Unless you look at the videos side by side, you won’t notice the difference. If you are a techie, yes, you might be able to say, that should look like this, etc., but if you are watching a movie/web series/commercial and you aren’t engrossed by the story, the problem isn’t the camera or the lens.

Interesting... I only picked the Canon once...

This has got to be the most idiotic thing I have ever heard. Even with protective lenses, looking at an eclipse can blind you. What morons.

jkokich: How about a $500 Sony? I'll bet you could shoot a damn good movie with that.

Toss in another $300 and let's have another test!

M Chambers: "I'm shocked. Shocked to find gambling here." Professionals used professional equipment and professional lighting to create the iPhone ads.

While this doesn't come as a surprise to anyone here it probably does amaze the general public.

Always has been. Remember pet rocks?

The quality of iPhone videos, even without the ridiculous gear attached to them, is fantastic. It's state of the art of a few years ago for high level gear, so if that state was perfectly acceptable, so is this. You really could shoot commercials, or features, on your iPhone if you actually relied on your abilities as a videographer, and not on the gear.

On article Video: First look at the Canon EOS 6D Mark II (128 comments in total)

I think we are getting very close to the same point stereo systems got years ago. Differences could only be measured with instruments, not the human ear.

jkokich: If you went to someone who knew nothing of the history of photography, and showed them two designs, one for a mirror system, with its complexity, and the other mirrorless, there would be no contest. Why have something so much more complicated? Now, I appreciate mechanical things, but the limitations of the mirror system place it firmly in the "yes, amazing, but things evolve" category.

I've gotten both from mirrorless.

Kaso: Consumer market is tough. A consumer looks for bargains and buys only one item in the space of 15 months or so. There are people who upgrade their camera bodies twice, yet still reuse their initial SD cards!

Of all the posts on this thread, this is the truth. Simple and direct. Bravo, Kaso.
