RStyga: Ugly design... Fortunately, K-1 follows K-7/5/3's design lines.

Read your first comment again and you'll probably see who's nasty. Either way, end of discussion.

Native English? Anyway, a lot a wasted space here and energy (I include myself). I just get ticked off when people reply in regard to anything else (especially, my right or freedom to comment) except my actual photography-related comment.

On article Sony a7R II versus a7 II: Eight key differences (397 comments in total)

To those who argue in favour of DSLRs over A7x, A7 series are DSLM not DSLR cameras, and this is a very important difference in many respects (AF accuracy, mirror slap, flange distance etc).

RStyga: "a firmware update that adds the option to shoot Raw-only"
Wow! Groundbreaking...

I was being ironic...

BigG30: Oh here we go again, a whole raft of salty comments on release day. Let me save you the effort, copy and paste one or more of the following and then hit 'post':

- it's too expensive
- it's too big
- it doesn't have IBIS
- pffffft, I'd rather buy a used X-T1
- 24 megapixels? WHY NOT 50!?
- APS-C? Why no full-frame?!?
- pffffffft, x-trans / lightroom wah wah wah

"Where is the orange-green version??"

Gesture: Beautiful, neat camera. Why make that viewfinder surround a dust magnet???????????????????????

The designer had no clue about such "trivial" practical issues...

@ odpisan
I'm relaxed; unlike your comment. Language is primarily not a tool for communication so better stick to fewer languages and learn them well.

This is much better compared to the Stellar fiasco; a genuinely new product, well done to Hasselblad! However, the design aesthetics is ..um... not that great. A matter of personal taste, agreed, but it seems to follow that digital Hasselblad MF butt-ugly design; Mamiya/Leaf sport much better designs.

@ odpisan
This is a commentary space. Tool design aesthetics is important, especially in artistic expression. You might need to brush up your English and manners.

Another camera bag like the others; and the news are...?

It's all about the price,now. If Samyang has also decided to put the prices up to match the level of competition the company's main advantage (i.e., low price) will be lost. Of course, optical performance is also important; however, it all depends on the price...

J Parker: Leica haters of the world, unite....

Leica does it again. First, Leica introduces an $8,000 monochrome camera and many of us are outraged. But Phase One introduces a monochrome camera that costs 5x the price ($40,000!) and the forums here are silent -- no outrage -- nothing. The Leica version saves you $32,000 -- the least we could've done was to say thanks. The humanity.

And now Leica releases a camera without an LCD.... Who do they think they are?

Seriously, all joking aside -- I wear a Timex -- but I would love a Patek Phillippe -- it is a pure work of art that also happens to tell time. Leica sells works of art that also happen to be photographic tools. And that I can understand. People buy fine art not for how it makes others (i.e. you) feel, but how it makes them feel -- and this can be an extremely powerful thing both logically and emotionally.

My auto fanatic friends don't stop enjoying their Mustangs when Ferrari puts out a new model. Enjoy the camera you have.

In my opinion, photography cannot be devalued, as a form of art, because most people have access to image capturing devices. Is literature devalued because nowadays (as opposed to Shakespeare's time, for instance) people know how to (read and) write (more or less)?

RStyga: Excellent idea; all DSLR manufacturers must adopt this. However, it needs refinement to allow for multiple FLs, lenses, AF points and lighting conditions.

@ CamCaptain
I think you're confusing things, here. Optical phenomena such as residual spherical aberration (which relates to aperture) and others such as field curvature are lens-dependent and appear irrespective of the focusing method used to achieve focus. The question is whether focus-inaccuracies, that are an implication of the focusing method used, can be avoided. CADF can inherently avoid focusing problems that appear when (auto) focusing using PDAF; however, Nikon's method is very promising (not entirely there yet, but still very useful) in correcting PDAF focusing inaccuracies with very little effort; we should acknowledge that.

Marty4650: Next new Leica breakthrough.... a pinhole camera with absolutely no other features.

Ideal for the absolute minimalist photographer. No autofocus, no auto exposure, no stinking art filters, it doesn't even need a lens!

This camera takes you right back to basics, for only $6,000. And that price includes a really nice leather strap.

...or the Fluffagon: 0 elements in 0 groups, flare-proof, distortion-proof, CA-proof, Leica's special BS-coating, ultra-high mechanical precision aperture with 0 blades. I'd say such a marvel would cost at least $4000.

Don't give them ideas, now...
