Peak freak: I’ve photographed a lot of reflection scenes. Anything mobile, like a fishing net, has to be perfectly still for a minute or more for the reflection to be so symmetrical.
I’m picking considerable use of photoshop in the fishing scene, which for myself, is an abuse of the fundamental image capturing process (aka cheating).

Ive shot enough reflection scenes to know that you are misstaken. I generally shot such scenes at 1/200. Are you sure you aren't just confusing a still reflective lake with long exposure photography?

Lobbamobba: Been using it on a Leica M8 for about two months now. Pretty fun to use. Compared to the 7artisan and TTArtisan it has its place depending what one values the most in a lens.

They are on par imo. But the Mitakon is already stoped down at f1.1. So when you stop to f2 the Mitakon gets as sharp at f1.4 and so on.
But the 7 artisan is smaller and lighter.

Well enough that I would not let image quality be the decider. At least not compared to the 7artisan. Instead look at price, size, design etc.

Wow, first time I read a Leica article before the grumpy non-photographers have been crying all over the comment section because a company didn't make a boring camera.

My rule since many years is that the more cry babies (that never used the camera) I see parroting and wining in forums, the better it probably is.
This was true for most Blackmagics, Ricoh GR, Nikon Z7, Nikon D500 the list goes on and on.

I haven't been interested in the R5 at all but all this crying has definitely started to change my mind.

sillen: "If you take 2 photos per minute for an hour then you get 10 minutes of 4K HQ"

2 photos per minute is a very relaxed photography usage of a camera that can take 20 photos per second. And with that slow 2 photos per minute usage you can only do 10 min filming!? And then you need to wait for hours, not shooting stills and not shooting video, to get any relevant recording time again?

Being that unreliable the R5 simply does not seem suited for hybrid shooting.

The actual users of the camera have confirmed what you say to be BS.
Check your sources.

Could be interesting as long as they skip the fully articulated screen.

ProDude: Among a number of other professionals I communicate with on a regular basis, not ONE has mentioned their consideration of going back to a mirror camera. In my estimation they are basically committing suicide to do otherwise. I don't care how amazing their viewfinder ends up, it won't make up for the advancements of the mirrorless designs already capturing the lions share of the market and beyond

Yes they do, they probably buy at least $10k worth of stuff every year. But no, it's not weddings.

Of the professional still shooters Ive come across over the last couple of years NONE has moved to mirrorless yet. (I'm the only one I know of.)

If you need to be stealthy to the point where the orange ring becomes a problem in your street photography, then you aren't doing it right.

FuhTeng: At least the folks who pre-ordered them will have plenty of practice using it before they can use it for professional sports.

Depends on the country.

(unknown member): It never ceases to make me laugh how anti-Sony a lot of people are.

"Waaaah Sony colours!!" (that they'd never pick out in a blind comparison)
"Toy camera company, they have tech not photographic prowess" (many of the best lenses today are G or G Master lenses)
"They will never be workhorse cameras" (Sony's higher end cameras since the A7R II have been rated for double the shutter actuations of the D810)

Sony is leading the pack as the most interesting and bang for buck camera maker. Get over it. Competition is good and it's the only way Nikon and Canon are going to get whipped into giving you better camera for your dollar.

Personally I'll continue being open to any camera maker that has a good body selection and good lens selection paired with good value for money.

Or maybe I should just drop $12k on a Leica setup so I can call of you toy camera owners? Now that would be a real boomer move.

Reading the specs above they seem a little behind the times and definitely not leading any packs.
Luckily for them specs aren't important.

dpierredp: If features are important to you get the Fuji X100V and if image quality is what matters the most to you try to find a used mint Sony RX1R.

The Rx1R is $7-800 less than the X100v, that will be enough for many.

nathantw: Okay, who's the one that just purchased the P800 printer in the last week or month? We thank you as you're the reason why an updated model was just released. It never fails that the moment you buy something the manufacturer comes out with a newer model.

Since these printers where announced and have been available for preorder for over a month.. its safe to say that most that bought a p800 in the last week had their chance :)

Wow, talk about trying to play down the pollution of the massive amount of plastics and other non reusable materials filling up the dumps after all the disposable digital crap that gets produced. In massive volumes with low life expectancy. And also ignoring the people that goes into the making, distribution, marketing etc. Their gas, food, shelter and children.

Compared to the small volumes of analog cameras already made, all metal, no batteries, running for decades..
