How many of us would like to see the digital version of this camera, in the same size body? --- No, not retro style, just the physical size is what I am after.

you can't properly demo a Leica without inevitably including a shot of a homeless man...

LackingCommonSensor: This is almost the perfect camera for me. I am thinking of selling off my DSLR and getting one. I know I could save $$ waiting for them to go on sale, but I could be dead by that time.

@vscd - it's more about all those shots that you missed because your dslr is too large and impractical to carry. Because the best camera is the camera in your pocket, not in your closet at home.

Albert Valentino: Follow the example of the DPR readers. if we like the equipment then we go out and buy one with our own money 🤑

I think Nikon should price the lens based on the estimated life, once sold.

I will likely get robbed once I land at my vacation destination, so $200 would be a fair price. Deal?

OhWeh: The same price as the Leica M10, but so much more camera for the money. More IQ, AF, sealed, ....

@legaceez - To clarify, I mean no sense of aesthetics when it comes to the GFX.

For the X- line, that definitely stands out. So yes, it's similar but also different than Leica, so it stands out on it's own.

Elite83: Buying a Leica is like a Manhattan business man buying a Ferrari to commute to work. It looks pretty, and a lot of people are going to think you're a special snowflake, but the top speed you'll ever reach in that thing downtown is crossing an intersection...maybe.

you mistakenly assume that the Ferrari is for speed only. There is way more to a car than that. There is way more to a camera than speed, FPS or MP.

arhmatic: Performance aside, this is a beautiful camera. I hope you, the Fujifilm X- designers, can give a hand to the GFX department - they do need it...

Stevo - the X series and GFX have very little in common, when it comes to industrial design and styling. We might like or not, this is personal. Definitely not intending to hurt anyone. In my mind, the X and GFX are worlds apart...

Stevo - Yes for the X100f, not so much for the GFX.

arhmatic: The conical design for lenses only reminds me of the cheapo Nikon 18-55mm II.

No, nowhere near Leica flavor. Please just do a simple cylinder in the future.

@ewelch - no, because design, beauty, craftsmanship does matter! No argument!

There is no way you can compare this to a Leica.

Leica has style. Leica is a classic.
Fujifilm has no sense of aesthetics - yet... Hope they get to it.

@ seth - true. Remember that there is no OVF present with the GFX...

@ran @docet -

It should not remind of anything. Authenticity is key for a timeless design...

You can get all the specs right, an authentic industrial design is equally important.

I like the simper hand grip. This is what the Pro2 should have had.

I tore mine off, could not stand looking at it.

Smart move on Fujifilm to skip full frame and go directly to medium format.

Loro Husk: Well, i guess my Sony A7 gives me everything (and more) this Leica could give me, at 1/7th of the price. But yeah, it's not a Leica.

Nice review though ;)

...except timeless design... but I know, this is just a tech tool, not a piece of fashion, so not important.
