NickyB66: I agree with the Fuji exec on this. I have a X-Pro 2 and would not swap it for any other camera, even a FF Leica. X Series prime lenses I have a very good and WR, small, compact, ideal for street and sublime images, even in JPEG.

As good as the Fuji X cameras and lenses are, there is no substitute for the M. I tried so hard to be happy with my X100S, but in the end I ended up selling it and buying an M240. It was love at first shot.

We are at the point where pretty much every mid to high end camera can pull off great images in the right hands. If you told someone this was taken with a Nikon D810, Canon 5DS, Sony A7r II they would not question it. For me it's really no longer about just pure image quality, but how I got that image. Everything is automated these days and for me it takes away the joy of creating the image yourself. My Leica M240 allows me to do so and I get pure enjoyment from doing it all manually. This is after all what photography should be. The pleasure of taking, photos not just the end result!

Phones are meant to take calls. Use a proper camera for the job. For me it's always the Leica M.

Eye-fi is about to go bye -bye thanks to all manufacturers including wifi capabilities in their cameras. I hope they have something big around the corner else things will look pretty bleak going forward.

I bought the G5 specifically for the wide angle lens. Now I just can't go back...It is quite remarkable how much more you can fit in!

wri7913: I wonder how many of the Sonikon fanboys could shoot without "chimping" their screen every shot.

Back in the days of film, you had to know how to make a photograph using the fundamentals of Photography. You had to think through each shot and imagine how it would look or know how it would look based on your settings.

Today its pixel peepers galore, chasing after the largest megapixel (while either not printing or small prints under 11x14) while preening about their sonikon gear. LOL

Exactly why I still shoot film. You actually have to get the shot right the first time! Of course, both digital and film have their places and fun factor!

Excellent choice for the purist who cannot be bothered with modern day fluff. However, My M6 Titan does exactly the same thing and if I want a digital photo, I just scan my negative!

ybizzle: Exactly the reason why I have the new LG G5. Wide angle lens built in without the need for bulky add ons.

It is not fish eye. It's ultra wide. And 8mp is more that enough for its intended purpose.

ybizzle: Or just get a real enthusiast pocket camera with a big, bright screen and better IQ for the same price and call it a day.

Oh no, I think I really hit a nerve with Mrrowe8. He must have been the only one person who bought one of these things. Either that or he works for dxo. ;).

I actually still have that cam! My very first digital camera!

In reply to:

ybizzle: Both Tamron and Sigma have raised their game and lens quality which rival or beat the same offerings from Canon or Nikon. Bravo!

I can't comment on that but I do know that my Tamron 70-200mm 2.8 on my a99 is razor sharp across the board at a fraction of what Sony charges for their own brand!
