Magnar W: I am impressed! A Leica aps-c camera that is almost up with other aps-c cameras on the marked!

Nothing special about the aps lenses

LiangMing: I almost make up my mind to buy the fancy brand new a7r3. This news just come in. Thanks DPReview, no thanks Sony.

Same here, and I think longer than 30s the RAW is 12bit too

Richard Kwon: Which ones don’t eat stars???

K-1, D810, all Canons perhaps 😀

Loro Husk: A jump from 2048px per side to 4096px results in four time the resolution, not "doubled".

2048x2048 = 4.194.304
4096x4096 = 1.6777.216

four times the pixel, not resolution

Looks mushy for an AA filterless sensor. More like coming from a $300 lens

vscd: The price is ridiculous against a Sony A7R2... I would pay more for a Leica than for a Sony, but $2800 is at leat $1000 too much. Especially for APS-C.

The Sony will eat the star out of the CL.

NickyB66: Nice camera, looks like Leica are paying homage to my Fuji X-Pro2 in ways of design. Should be a good seller.

@T3; problem is, the only thing similar to the 1973 CL is the name. in term of digital-RF AF thing, Fuji is the closest - Xpro1 being the first. The Fuji has a hybrid VF, and fast AF (Xpro2). It's almost like Leica is trying to copy Xpro2 and take some of its market share.

sRGB only?

Only Leica is allowed to pull this off

I got a new old stock FM2N much cheaper than that. Even a mint used M6 TTL is still cheaper than $1500...

So many internet pros here LOL

even the battery grip is a hefty $349. That's a big price for a small sensor.

1st photo clearly shows that only Leica could make the bokeh sharper than the subject. All for $6500 only.

Based on the samples, the lens doesn't look spectacular

raztec: I refuse to buy gear from companies that deliberately make it more inconvenient and expensive for photographers to get spare parts (cables) etc. just for a miserly increase in their profits. Go Canon go...down the rabbithole of greed!

Having nightmares lately?

In reply to:

nerd2: It's seriously funny. $1200 for 45mm 1.2 that is only equivalent to 90mm 2.4 with FF? Nikkor 85/1.8 costs $500 and you can spend remaining $700 to get a FF body.

And there is Fuji 56/1.2 which is a lot cheaper too. I don't see a point putting expensive lenses on those small outdated noisy m4/3 sensor.

Only 1.2kg? Should have been 1.5kg for the price

In reply to:

Mssimo: Or you can just stack 6 ebay UV filters on any lens. 6 elements in 6 groups. Add more filters for an "enhanced effect." Also works as an ND/flare enhancer. Im working on a new petroleum based product that will protect the front element while giving a nice creamy artistic image. It will come in both tube and jar containers. After a long day of beautiful pictures, it will have a side benefit while you sit in front of you computer and gaze at your creations.

Why spend money on 6 filters? Just grow some fungus and voila .... Leica rendering!

a lot of money for plenty of optical aberrations. Smart.
