How come Leica SL didn’t make it here?
The only camera that has Super35 4K and 10-bit 422 output at the same time cannot be ignored.

ErnstCanonLeica: I own the Summilux 75mm f/ 1,4 and I love it. Don't need shallower depht of field, and I certainly don't need a 1055 gram instead of a 560 gram lens. Who wants such a heavy Leica M lens??? The Sum 75 is a legend. This Noct 75mm can't beat Dr Mandlers favorite lens.

well, there is aways a budget option. mitakon 1.2/85 or something :)

lol no, it does not work that way :))) it is a half stop faster than 1.4. However, with the way M10 performs at ISO12500 this half stop does not matter too much.

Well, I guess, I am just not intelligent enough.

Perhaps. All I know is that pretty much anything that takes 30 minutes of accomplishing in post takes 2-3 minutes tops before you press the button.
This may be a powerful teaching tool, but using it in a professional setting for production is questionable, as more often than not post is done by someone else. If you take a picture and someone else is tweaking the lighting, where is your creative input?

it is no more difficult than focusing 1/50 noctilux, as the focus throw is pretty long. What's important is not to hover back and forth. Alternatively, you can fine adjust focus by hovering.

This may be something to consider for SL owners with unlimited budget.

I would countersue and had my dad sue. Where is the model release?

I mean IBIS. Do not forget, it is much easier to shift a 4/3 sensor because it is so small and light. The larger the sensor, the heavier it is, and the more of a distance it needs to travel.

@ Mescalamba - good luck with that, especially with anything wider than 50mm :)))

Tom Caldwell: Panasonic Lens? Nobody noticed the GM5 elephant in the room?

@ Barney - I haven't seen that one yet. 35 and 60 are German. So, I wrongly assumed that primes were all made in Germany

tedolf: Tell me why I am buying this over a PEN F?

tedolph

@ Tedolf - actually, 1,93x vs 1.6x... The difference is much larger than you think, as when dealing with surface areas, you have to compare squares of crop factors. What it also means, in addition to a well known relationship between the sensor size and 3D pop, is that pixels at the same resolution need to be packed much tighter, and their size needs to be smaller. The smaller the pixel is, the lower its signal to noise ratio is. Just that simple.
All above is strictly about sensors. What makes any real Leica (and this one is actually real, unlike D-Lux and C-Lux) unique is optics, which is superior to anything else in existence.

james s. kennedy: My favorite Bible verse is Ecclesiastes 9:11, and I regard the Bible as fiction. I cant wait to read how much this Leica costs. I own 11 Leicas, but all film. Great history but PITA ergonomics until the M series came along in 1954.

$2750 at B&H.

Of course it does! How long does it last, though?
