I´ve seen some European preliminary prices, and it´s about what Sigma sports costs. That´s €1600-1800.

I hope there is special round for "these" in hell...

So it is not really that fast across the range. That´s why I was watching at LX7 series successor! I would definitely buy it if it stayed fastest from the bunch across the range. Too bad.

They stack another mistake on top of some old one. 1150€ for body looks ridiculous to me. I would love to have M5, but for this price, with possible availability on the begining of december, that is nightmare. I'm going to add some sweet lens to my Nikon FX setup then.

Well, while I will be able to get my hands on M5 on early december, it doesn´t look like "pretty fast" We´re talking about half year here. That´s nightmare. Really.

I didn´t really insist on that you can crack the algorythm. For uniqueness of the fingerprints, yes, these are unique, but we´ve seen reports of breaking this too, mostly because of "poor" implementation of getting these unique data. They propably need to work more on that one - bring higher quality and more data from the user (data read from the fingerprint readout). Not just few, few-bit points, but at least some 256byte map, and then some secure handler of this data, so even if it´s broken, it´s useless again unless you know how to used. That I would call security. As far as I know, this didn´t happen yet for consumer product.

No, it seems you don´t have a clue :-)
I´m not talking about breaking the algorithm itself. Just the hash-password. It is doable, and that´s what counts for intruder.
And in the meantime, you rinse your mouth before you talk to anybody. You might find later in the life, that social interaction skills are far more important than knowing some nerd stuff :-)

md5 is 128bit and can be cracked by rainbow tables for obvious reasons. Sha is different, but the bit lenght doesn't really tell you much about un-crackability. Too strong words from you. It rather depends on what really is hashed. If it is 32 pretty low numbers, you break the hash in a blink of an eye. No matter what topology it uses (If you know possible salt and pepper in it)

In the meantime, some servers are creating rainbow maps for this for sure. ;-)

ET2: didn't exactly look what crypting it uses, but many actually CAN be broken. Maybe not this one, I didn't study the detail. 256bit is a lot, thats for sure. ;-)

ET2: hash can be "broken" or cracked fast these days if found valuable. Matter of few hours.

teh herp3r: So 4.6 inches is now considered compact these days?

I bought Oukitel K10000 for fun recently. It is 5,5" 320g, over 1/2" thick BEAST. All I can say is that if it delivered performance, power, features, speed and exceptional camera, it would be my edc phone in spite of all these disadvantages. Can carry that instead of thin phone and batterypack or USB cable.

Marksphoto: I do wish Canon made a true 5 megapixel 5d version for wedding photographers who don't need 50mp. We want lower noise in the darker venues and I think that would be an ideal resolution with huge pixels capturing dim light. The megapixel race is stupid.

Of course I did. Here is my angle of view:
I would not shoot past ISO 12800 with about any camera. Therefore, better performance at ISO 50k or 100k is irrelevant to me, no matter how many stops better than other cameras.
Now here is what it looks like at 12800:
https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr18=daylight&attr13_0=canon_eos5d&attr13_1=canon_eos6d&attr13_2=nikon_d750&attr13_3=sony_a7sii&attr15_0=raw&attr15_1=raw&attr15_2=raw&attr15_3=raw&attr16_0=100&attr16_1=12800&attr16_2=12800&attr16_3=12800&normalization=compare&widget=393&x=0.5481502151699901&y=0.8919687311967475

To me it looks rather that way that Sony handles some noise performance for weaker CFA, giving poorer color. Once you kick colors - saturation and contrast up to the comparable level, you are at the noise performance of the oldschool Canon 6D or Nikon D600 and up. I don´t see how it scales to a point it is worth to pick lower res...

Camera sensors don't scale that way anymore. You won't get so much performance....

FuhTeng: I enjoy their MTF - remarkable performance to have HIGHER resolution for 30 lp/mm than 10 lp/mm! Even the mighty OTUS lenses can't pull that off.

Good catch!
it looks like a typo... Change 10 for 30 and vice versa...
