racin06: This was not a robbery, this was a burglary. Do people not know the difference?

Yes, but if a Leica is stolen, it's always a robbery

Probably just another recycled sensor, knowing Canon

theronsan: The Leica M10 is the camera I would like to have. But I won't vote for it because I could get two D850 for the same price as one M10.

Different use, for landscape and alike D850 is much more capable

Eloise: The problem is that some of these cameras (and in other categories) are beaten not by others in the same category, but by older cameras either from the same manufacturer or a competitor.

I can't see how either the Canon 6D MkII (beaten IMO by the Nikon D750) or the Nikon D7500 (beaten by the Nikon D7500) can be the "best" of 2017.

Basically every camera released in 2017 is still beaten by D750 😋

Dante Birchen: On Par with the Canon 6D Mk II :p

And I already thought the 6D2 overpriced LOL

No wonder they are expensive, a lot of money spent on the R&D of that red exterior. Leica sacrifices the sensor performance for that.

roblumba: I was sitting at front and center stage at a jazz concert with my Leica M10 and a 50 lux watching with the optical rangefinder to my right eye and my left eye open. This experience of seeing everything, with both eyes open, in full optical glory, in such a small package was what makes owning a Leica M10 special. And the history and good looks of the camera invokes a different response out of people you photograph. And as someone who loves photographing people, I feel as if the history of the camera brand has imparted some confidence and inspiration to capture the beauty of people and things happening every day. For me, this is worth the cost. And the fast Leica glass creates colors and renders details and bokeh in a very pleasing way to me eyes.

I have pixel peeped many of my images and Leica glass is drawing out details, colors that are not reflected in DxO mark scores. The combination of the sensor, Leica color science, with the Leica glass scores over 100 in my book.

Your second paragraph cracked me up good!!

Take a look at the new red M262, do you think the buyers care about DXO score? Leica could put an aps sensor inside and still the buyers won't even realize it.

It's made for Leica photography, not regular one.

marxitu: The Panasonic Leica DG Elmarit 200mm F2.8 Power OIS is not in the list. It's a fraud.

It's overpriced, not a fraud

Thambar is in a class of itself. It never produces bad photo.

Kiril Karaatanasov: Who needs this?

If shallow focus or IQ is needed A7 + 85/1.8 lens will deliver more at fraction of the price

If light weight is needed why not settle for 1.8 lens that will be plenty sharp and super high quality?

1.2 lenses only make sense on bigger sensors.

May be low light focusing will be better with 1.2 lens or may be not...

Cheaper to get A7ii + 85 or X-T20 + 56... no need to spend $$$ on a noisy sensor plus when the lens gets bigger and so expensive what's the point of m4/3 anyway

eugene1979: In terms of angle of view and DoF it is equal to 35mm F/1.4 on 35mm full-frame cameras. Most of such lenses cost about 899-1499 USD.
And here we have a lens that covers only m43 and costs 1199 USD.
No, thank you.

My DA 35/2.4 works well on the K1 (some vignetting of course) but it's less than $200 and quite sharp wide open. You'd have to be rich in m4/3 world just to have that kind of 'look'.

Leica is in a category of itself - best in everything. Just ask the owners

stevevelvia50: The Olympus 7-14 2.8 pro should have been included in that ilusterious selection of lenses. It is perhaps the sharpest ultrawide angle zoom ever created, at the very least, on the same level as the "legendary" Nikon 14-24. The 7-14 is fantastically sharp!

Apart from the true diameter that affects light gathering, some of the shots above are taken at iso 5000 and 6400 which means m4/3 is the worst choice for this kind of photography. Even in good light, the oly won't stand a chance compared to the Sigma on a camera such as D850, A7Riii or 5DSr...

ttran88: The only thing dxomark is proving that the highest score only means you will sell less cameras. Look at Canon camera scores, lower it is the more cameras you will sell !!!!

@ozturert; excellent in term of what? Many aspects - simply it's the best Canon has right now. I'm not saying it's bad - just too expensive...

Btw, funny you mentioned A7R2 as it already produces higher IQ than 5D4...

@thx1138; both Sony and Nikon have much higher MP and captured more detail at any ISO. I'm a Canon user but 5D4 looks very expensive now...

Nothing special about the aps lenses
