You would have to be a complete n00b to buy this lens. Spend your money on a prime instead.

Buy an LG G5 and call it a day.

ybizzle: Panasonic CM1 would wipe the floor with this crap...

Still doesn't change the fact that a 3yr old phone has superior IQ to a new flagship.

And no one bought it because when it was released, it was too expensive, no carrier picked it up, and had poor marketing.

Ziv Kruger: Not having money to literally burn, and having stopped purchasing "fun" cameras that never leave the house, this "latest" offering is clearly not intended for me.

No video? In 2017? Unreliable framing and focusing? Isn't the point of attempting to capture an image actually capturing the image?

No built-in viewfinder, No articulation on the back screen, slow flash sync, unreliable white balance, questionable battery life, and oh yeah, you might need a lens. Again, you lost me at limited manual focus (with no actual focus points?)

Stack this camera against ANY $1,000.00 model on the current market, and it loses badly. There are of options @ $650.00 and below that would put this camera's images and handling to shame.

Is there really a point to a large sensor that captures out of focus difficult to frame images? No.

I rather enjoy the benefits of modern technology. Having worked as a professional when "Polaroid Backs" were the fastest way to preview an image with a client. :) ZK

No built in view finder? Yea it has one...Since the M3! How do you manage to miss this?

If you need video, this camera is not for you! Get the M240 or better yet, a Sony A7x/Panasonic GH for much less.

Articulating screen is just a matter of preference. Battery life is decent and so is the white balance. As for focus, it is quite simple and acurate. You just need time to practice as with anything else.

Show me a new camera at $1000 that is a range finder and I will buy it. This camera is not for you my friend. ;)

The letter M has never meant so much as it does for the Leica M line. It is iconic. It is pure photography. It is, the M!

ybizzle: I would hope the high end smartphones of the future would utilize the 1" sensor which should have become the norm since the Panasonic CM-1 was released 2yrs ago. One can only dream...

@GabrielFFontes
It did not succeed because of cost and poor phone user experience.

ybizzle: Still waiting for the vaporware KODAK Super 8 Camera announced at CES 2016... ;)

Let's hope you're right. I'd like to try this out one day as I was just born when super 8 was first popular. Now in my 30's, I have found a love for film photography through my Leica cameras so this would be next on my to do list.

The popularity of Fuji Classic Chrome film simulation is the real reason this is coming back...

Or just look in your bag before you leave to see if everything is there. You can also create a check list to be safe you don't miss anything. This product is DOA and anyone who funds this will pretty much be throwing money in the toilet.

Fachy Marin: The DXO-one is definitely better than all the modular technologies used in LG and Moto phones. Ten times better quality, functionality, etc. you have an actual camera paired with your phone. I hope they can support android in the future.

If you're going to take 2 devices with you, you may as well take any of the small 1" sensor pocket cams. They pretty much all have WiFi and are able to be paired with your phone. Not to mention they offer better handling and features.

I prefer the real bokeh of my GX1 and Oly 45mm 1.8. I carry one in each pocket of my jeans when I need to be super portable yet not lose out on IQ!

PanchoVilla: This will eat the Fuji XT-2 for lunch and the Sony A6500 dessert! Olympus+Panasonic is unstoppable when it comes to innovating mirrorless cameras!

Spoken like a true fanboy!
