KubeKube: We should compliment DP Review for saying to Leica "The king wears no clothes" in such a polite, respectful manner.

@Alwina H

That is only true when you can pass the blind test, otherwise, it is just make-believe.

@Lord Powershoter

Leica would not agree with that analogy.

willmore: I picked A in 1-3 and was surprised when I liked B in 4. I figured, "hey, I guess that lens isn't good in all short". Turns out it was. They both have terrible bokah, but the Leica has better than the 7Artisans.

Yeah, I like the Bokeh in image set 3 a lot.

I got 2 out of 4 right. Specifically, scene set 1 and 4. At 50%, this means I could have judged incorrectly as I could have correctly.

Thanks for this comparison, DPR. Now I can feel more confident in buying the much less expensive alternative.

The results of this comparison also remove some of the superior optics mystique of the Leica brand.

Papa48: My original FZ1000 images are sharper, and less washed out than these. Sorry, not a very good representation, to my eyes.

Yes.

Platinumkid: This camera is exactly what E-M10 III should have been. Anyway, if one wants to upgrade from the E-M10 II or any of the EPLs, for example, this one makes sense.

@Platinumkid

"This camera is exactly what E-M10 III should have been."

One can always say this after the fact, but every camera iteration feature set is determined by two factors: the near-future competitive market and the camera makers model lineup so as to avoid cannibalization.

MartinSho: DPR might as well stop the review. Olympus is no more, Apsc can do the same and have a bigger sensor. Not to forget glass availability.

@MartinSho

The size of an image sensor is NOT everything.

Most cameras have sensors even smaller than 1/2.3-inch.

Yeah, I am talking about cameras on your modern smartphone.

If people can accept smartphone pictures, why do you think pictures taken by Micro Four Thirds cameras are not good enough?

A camera body made of polymer composite is fine.

It is light and strong.

It doesn't dent like metal.

I will buy a black one once the price comes down a bit.

pro photo 2011: I use a smartphone to take pictures on the street when I want my subject(s) to be less alarmed.

People are now used to seeing smartphones everywhere that they deem pictures taken are for casual use.

@Mr Bolton

Not any smartphone.

You need a smartphone with superior camera lenses - mainly ones endorsed by Leica and Zeiss.

Again, a smartphone is now more unobtrusive than a dedicated camera.

And being able to get the picture is the most important.

pro photo 2011: A combination of SD /CF Express compatible slots is much more versatile and flexible than cameras with two distinct slots.

@Thoughts R Us

Of course, it matters.

Your analogy of Betamax vs. VHS is flawed.

Sony's implementation is essentially Betamax+VHS, not Betamax vs. VHS.

Both slots can accept SD or CF Express Type A. If you want higher speed, choose CF Express. If you want affordability, choose SD.

MHshooter: 2021? You might as well cancel every event, for all time since we always have flu and even it killed 80,000 people in 2018.

Apparently, there are still plenty of people who consider COVID-19 to be just a flu. That's why we are accumulating one million infected every 2-3 weeks and it is accelerating.

pro photo 2011: The astronomical prices of Leica gear convince me every time when I contemplate to buy camera equipment of other labels. They are good values by comparison.

For about the same money, I bought the Panasonic S1H and S1R instead of the Leica SL2.

@HowaboutRAW, Barry Benowitz

I chose not to own a Leica M camera because I want auto-focus capability. I have two Qs and intend to get a Q2 at some point.

I understand that the SL2's auto-focus capability is WORSE than Panasonic's.

Why does Canon choose to reduce the resolution of the R6 to 20 MP when most mature and basic FF cameras have 24 MP?

I'd be concerned about the reliability of the camera electronics. It's a brand new company with a brand new camera.

She should have zoomed in with her camera or smartphone instead of physically getting too close to a wild animal. It's just common sense.

cdembrey: Another solution seeking a problem. Hand a 5 year old a phone, and they will be taking photos as soon as they find and open the app. Photography is neither *brain surgery nor rocket science.*

@cdembrey

Nice try.

Photography is not like a pizza, and it is not like a knife fight.

You have no idea what you are talking about.
