sh10453: Time to replace your 4x4 SUV with a Lambo..
I don't get their point of showing this car's performance on snow.

These lambos are 4x4...and have snow tires and they are on a big flat lake. Where is the problem ?

I don't get the "it's just a tree" thing.
I was raised with the idea that human should respect nature, being animals, plants, trees, etc.
Trees are living creatures too. They born, raise and die. Some are strong, some are weak, some die from disease, some are big and beautiful, other are ugly and weird... just as we do, us "human" being.
I don't see how this is not so important cuz it's just a tree.
This "just a tree" actually participates to absorb CO2 so we don't all die, and refreshes our planet so we don't overheat.
I thought it was just guenine sense and that all people knew that we have to protect trees and forests if we want a future. Any tree counts. Unfortunately 90% of people on this planet are just trash to themselves and so to others.

I wish Leica's TL line also has a 100-400mm equivalent lens with OIS...

mrmut: The most important part of the article is comment about focus inaccuracy. I just don't care about stuff that miss focus.

Good to know.

Sardonic G: Or I can stick with my Sigma 1.4 85mm art and "suffer" the the embarrassment of such a slow lens......

Now explain me how you put your Sigma on your Leica M ?

Rihass: I really don't understand why Leica is praised for their design. To me, all of their cameras looks almost identical.

I think the same about Apple product ! Why are their products praised for their designs ? They all look the same ! Oh....wait. Maybe that's because the design is good that they keep it this way.

Johnnew Archibald - SMGJohn: The fact there people justifying the price of this junk makes me wish for a nuclear winter.

For this junk ? What junk ? The Leica Q has raving reviews everywhere and not that expensive by Leica standards or regarding the competition. Quite a first for Leica actually.

I can just buy a Leica and crop massively since leica lenses are so sharp...

QuarryCat: Canon EF 4.0-5.6/70-300 mm IS II
lighter, sharper, faster, cheaper and the difference between 300 mm and 400 mm can be cropped.
The same with Nikon AF-S 5.6/70-300 mm G VRII - but to expensive.
Sigma 6.3/100-400 mm was the first - but with lousy AF - so the Tamron might be a clear winner.

My crop is larger than yours !!!

james s. kennedy: My Fujifilm HS50 EXR covers the range 24-1000 mm good enough for me at a cost of about $300. Anything more expensive would suffer fro diminishing returns. Different stroke...

Very nice !!!

What I like with photoraphy, especially landscape photography, is that you have to work very hard for it. Usually you have to trekk, scout for composition, hope for good light, often lose the game so that you have to come back later (or during another trip in months or years), endure weather, etc.
Then you have to be ready, have your tripod and filters setup, be reactive, and hope for a great reward : a picture you do like.
The fact that the all process is hard and needs technic is what interest and motivates me. I am totally not in look for an easy "one button" and the camera does all for me solution. I have this feeling the society want us to become "one button" idiots.

On article This is the world's first variable graduated ND filter (150 comments in total)

Seems like a bad good idea to me. I use real square filters and usually all you need is a 0.6 soft grad and 0.6 hard grad and you are done with grad ND...
I would not fiddle with this but good to see some people trying to innovate.

You forgot the flashes, the off camera triggers, the umbrellas, the ligther tripod, the heaver tripod, the brigther lens...the uwa lens...the bright uwa lens...the slow but sharper uwa lens (same but with zooms), and so on. Also don't forget about the computer and 4k screen.

Slapstick Noir: The very next thing you need to do, after getting your new camera, is to go to dxomark and find out how much dynamic range does it have. Then you have to check the MTF of the lens, and last but not least, the ISO in-variance and the exposure latitude. And only then decide if it can take pictures.
Serioulsy, though.
If somebody's got you a Canon M5, you need to carefully look around and find out who hates you so much. Then, it's a revenge time: buy her/him a windows phone or a Linux laptop :-D

I started to use Linux about 3 months ago for programming purpose and there is no going back :)
Much cleaner and faster than windows.

Sirandar: Growth is a relative term .... It compares where you are to where you were, unless it is projection.

400 million euros? That is a lot of cameras even at Leica prices ....

Interesting ..... In Canada I have not ever seen one Leica camera in my entire life being used in the real world ..... not one.... that says a lot about many things when you think about it .....

Anytime I have a walk in Paris I can see people shooting Leica (myself included). Generally men in their 50's. Film body 80% of the time.

sibuzaru: odd that they didn't include the 32gb internal storage on this model, it was such a nice idea

I agree. I have a T and I am disapointed the CL does't have this feature.
