Michael S.: Forgive me, but I can`t see a "PHOTO" competition, all those pictures are a "PHOTOSHOP"-competition, so my opinion as an experienced astrophotographer.

@Mrrowe8
NO whining here...just my 2 cents, live with it.

STILL have mine - my very first digital camera and it still works.
:-)

Only problem - the batteries from today seem to be to strong and you can't get those old ones.

On article Leica's M11 risks rendering the rangefinder obsolete (362 comments in total)

I do own and use both - M and SL cameras. As the SL, as all other DSLR and DSLM cameras, is the working horse for event, sports, bird...shooting, the M is my "personal" cam, taken with me for openings, meeting friends, walking through town, it is relaxing, a pure joy but the rangefinder is a huge part of that feeling, so my M10-P may be the very last true RF camera and I do like that.

m4/3 is outdated and dead, if you missed the past years.

Perfect fit for those lawyers and dentists to shoot the soccer games of their children and of course for the daily cat image.
Someone saying "Leica"?!

Nate Kong: Best lens for cat photography.

Nah, better use your Sony Alpha One you bought for your daughter's soccer game for that cat photography!

I'm surprised - so many have been bashing the Leica SL2 as it came out for a price of €5900,-
Now we have the Alpha One for €7299,- and no bashing, now that's strange.

AlanG: "when β€˜stopped down to F2.8 or further, the Noctilux-M 50 f/1.2 ASPH delivers impeccably sharp images that live up to the quality expectations of modern-day digital photography."

Not exactly what I look for in an expensive lens today. I know it is for nostalgia, collectors, investors, people with more money than they know what to do with. $8000+ more for just a limited silver finish. Good...Soak the rich.

@jschoonj - Lawyers and dentists are human beings too (at least most of them), so let them have their toys too.

Astro Landscapes: "Homage"

Translation:

"Pay lots of money for this lens, but don't pixel-peep the image quality, mmmkay?"

"Pixel-peep" in the league of an CanNikon 50mm f1.8 or f1.4. I'm sure IQ wise it will beat both of those lenses at ANY aperture.

In reply to:

white shadow: Would it make you a better photographer ?

If you learn to use that lens properly, yes, it will make you a better photographer as for example the use of an external flash you buy - learn to bounce it and you will get better results, you learned something by doing, trying.

Good Morning!
Actually, so far, Feb 1st, there is no such thing as a new firmware available, at least on the official german website of Leica you can't find that mentioned new firmware.

CaPi: Video... It's everywhere.
I would really like to know how what percentage (non business) customers use that regularly outside of YouTube.

0.1% would be my guess. Me too can't understand that video hype, I don't care about video.

Michael S.: Boy those camera is bad. I'm not blaming the lens but iso320 already looking as if you are at 3200 and that in lovely sunlight expresses clearly why Olympus had to leave the market. The IQ is really a bad joke.

$5k out of those 6k is just for the Adobe lifetime license, so I would say a very fair deal for that camera. We are all aware of how expensive that is!
😊☺️
