dansclic: One of thé major qualities you expect from à semi pro body is that its battery is able to allow you min. 5/600 shots. This is,incredible that Fuji is not able to solve that problem !!

The Leica SL is your best bet then.

As this is the 2nd time Samsung gives up its customers/supporters in the camera business my guess is we won't see them around here for a long time.

AllanW: DPreview.... trying to understand what output this has as compared to a speedlight. Any info on this?

Simple : it has less power, less range, it cannot freeze action, it is harder to accessories.

Who uses a 90mm APO at 1/125 with a Leica M and expect sharp result anyway ?

On article Opinion: Pour one out for Samsung cameras (321 comments in total)

The NX mount is their error. Could never physically support full frame sensors which basically are what people want to buy these days. That's their mistake number 2. The 1st mistake, still related to their mount, was being less compatible than Sony mount for legacy lenses (remember it was the crazy trend when the NX camera was launched...before Sony Nex line - yes).
They also chosed to launch their first NX camera with an already 3 years old outdated sensor that made them lose the upcoming iso race from the start. And that's all these points, very seriously pointed by the haters, that made Samsung become unliked or ignored.
I even remember DPR be rather so-so and kind of cold in their reviews about sony NX cameras in comparison to the more enthousiast writing style they used for Sony (despite...frankly, the NX was much more mature as a system that the Nex for many months / years. Pancakes anyone ?). I feel its a bit hypocrite for them to say now that they wish Samsung dont leave the camera business lol. Such enthousiasm would have been better 4 years ago.

On article Gear of the Year Part 4: Dale's pick - Samsung NX1 (407 comments in total)

After Leica, Samsung NX line is my favorite for ergonomics, UI interface and handling.
I still remember the great NX10 that was a very capable camera, if not an amazing one.
Samsung suffered too much of the high ISO performance comparison against Sony (when they were basically just a small stop worse). They obviously fixed this with their last cameras and provided so much more specs than other competitors in the fields. It's a shame it's not selling.

Robert Kempen: I notice that Leica is selling the SL faster than they can manufacture it - perhaps the bashers want to discuss this?

Steve Huff calls it the camera of the year (and he owns the A7R2) among many cameras

I also notice the list of people who "had it" has now grown to 45 - my goodness!

Anyway, bravo to Leica - the list of happy owners is growing rapidly and the images sent to "the Leica meet" is testimony to the quality of this fine photographic tool

I love my M240, but the viewfinder on the SL is looking more attractive by the day - Leica please make a similar EVF for the M240!

I've ordered mine in France about 2 weeks ago. Still undelivered. People at camera shops say it's not selling as crazy as the Q...but almost.

Randy Veeman: But Sony marketing says their lenses with out those gaskets and sealing tape are 'weather resistant' too.

Nice to see some REAL lenses made for photographers who make a living out doors in the snow, sand, rain, and dust, and not just in a studio or in fair weather.

Don't forget moon/mars

As soon as I'm home I'll start a teardown of all my Leica lenses.

robmanueb: Good on Nikon for leading the way with the DF, great to see Leica having the common sense to follow. Now if Nikon can build the mythical D400 without video and keep the price down, I would have all my previous faith in them validated.

How long will it take to someone to hack the M262 firmware and reassign Liveview function to the WB button ?
A bit hard to swallow that Leica can lower the price by 2000usd with the same camera...(or worse...a better one: weight/shutter) with just a crippled firmware O_O
