Aberaeron: Wow, so much armchair criticism it's unreal!

One of the highlights of this video for me is the pronunciation, by an American, of the word 'Nikon', heard about 75% through to the end, in the European English way. Nik-on, rather than the usual 'Mercan way of Nike-on.

Yeah : just as Tibet, or Taiwan are officialy recognised as being China because Americans need to do Business with chineses ;) more than with Tibet or Taiwan.

Daniel L: 5K on 32-inch sounds about right, 8k is pushing it. No soup for u,

4K is already way too high for 32"

It seems even 32" monitors with 4K haven't a big enough diagonal... so 8K...

28~32" in QHD is more than enough for general use and you get high contrast, good angles and accurate colors to go with.

starwolfy: The Leica SL EVF is so good I really hope Leica brings a higher magnification when you zoom in to focus.

This EVF is made by EPSON and who knows if other manufacturers may want to use it. What I understand is that this EVF is currently the best available on the consumer market but is quite large : which is what partly explains the big SL body.

vscd: Seriously, Wh*Th*Fu*. I would like to see the results... if it beats the OTUS 55mm 1.4 it would be quite amazing, but I doubt it will be anywhere there @f2

$8000!!!eleven!!1!

Right. Now compare the size/weight of an Otus with the size of a 50mm APO Leica and come back to me. I'm not stating this lens price is balanced with its optical quality - you do pay a premium for the dot - but at this size what can expect more than what law of physics could possibly permit ?

NaBalam: "Leica's niche is not "photographers who desire the best", but rather rich point-and-shooters without a brain" SO TRUE. If you take a picture with a LEICA, oh boy you have to say it out loud! "Picture of my cat, #leica #noctilux #FINEART" Otherwise what's the point of owning such amazing equipment?. Leica does not offer NOTHING, absolutely nothing that actually helps to get better photos. Good Glass? Fuji makes great glass, Speed? No way Jose, Weather resistant body? High ISO performance? Size? Leica is about one thing: THE LEICA EXPERIENCE and this so call "experience" has little to do with photography. I love how people tries to justify spending big money on stupid things. "If you've never owned a Leica you don't know what you are talking about"... mediocre.

Leica owners don't have anything to justify. It seems Leica haters, in another hand, have a lot work finding all the justifications they can to "prove" (by their own law) that Leica owners are stupid because "insert your critics and bashing here".
Saying all Leica users are stupid, bad photographers, looking just for status etc. "Is" the stupidity.

On article Canon is selling a gray version of the Rebel T6 (146 comments in total)

Leica has way more taste when color and look is involved. This looks like a toy.

Under 10K. Now totally laughing at the face of all these guys that were pretending Fuji may introduced a MF camera that was going to totally cut the Leica and Hasselblad prices :p

Jaythomasni: Sony's industrial design is great . Like Big Apple's. But Samsung and chinese has flooded all the markets with white goods with all possible screens and bells and whistles... decades ago there was only premium high quality products from Japan and Europe ...now with the Chinese and Koreans flooding the mass market with cheap electronics and automobiles...premium products are gone.... makers cant survive...

What are you saying ? Korean car manufacturer Hyundai is in the top 5 of the car manufacturers worldwide. In France they sell Hyundai with 5 years warranty and KIA's with 7 years warranty...which is a lot more than the average 2 to 3 years provided by car makers like BMW/ Audi/Toyota etc which are brands famous for their reliability.

You misunderstand mass markets and low-end strategy with poor engineering capabilities.

It's like saying Renault or Peugeot is crap because they sell small city cars with low consumption engines. Actually Renault and Peugeot both have a really impressive track record in automobile sport. Just as Hyundai is doing quite good in WRC championship...for example.
