In reply to:

RStyga: Let's see whether this "new" and "inexpensive" product will be at least free of LCD failures and sensor defects. That would be a nice -bare minimum- start for Leica. One baby step at a time...

Not only the M9..,

iAPX: A noisy picture on the NYC subway at ISO 500, and a grainy one at ISO 3200, with a 24MP "newly developped" full-frame sensor?!?

It's at 2 or 3 ISO-level far away from the now old D610 or D750.
In fact at 3200 ISO, with pixels having the sam exact size as my old D300, it seems to be a par, but it's 10 year's old technology!

What is this mess about?!?

You don't need to buy into the provocatively expensive stupidity of digital Leica. There are RF film cameras for the nostalgic experience. I have an M4-P and enjoy using it (with CV lenses, of course) without subscribing to Leica's outrageous marketing in the digital market.

RStyga: There's slight overlapping with the 60/2.4. The 50/2 is WR, the 60/2.4 is macro, that's the most significant difference, it seems.

Good to know!

RStyga: Wow, it only took several years to *approach* the competition. We'd expect Leica to catch up in a decade or two. Going strong!

I make fake competition arguments?? Take your red blinkers off. I don't need to understand anything. Leica needs to understand photographers. For the moment they only understand (or, rather, care about) consumers with fat wallets. Leica makes digital cameras used primarily for street and travel photography. Other camera makers produce cameras that can be used for street/travel photography as well, and perform much better while costing much less. That is a fact. The vast majority of photographers (not rich snap shooters) are not enchanted at all by the archaic rangefinder mechanism. Even Leica is very gently and slowly moving away from it or, at least, providing alternatives like LV; wake up! I'm somehow pretty sure that modern AF is a tad bit better than RF for a photographer who wants to be able to capture light and frame a shot without worrying too much about how to get the 'light box' to do it properly and accurately. How biased you Leica fanatics really are...

How do you like to position Leica's digicams in their own category and then, wow, magically remove the competition! I'd love to see the next Leica model and it should be called M Typ Ostrich.

Contra Mundum: The truth is that nobody would have noticed this camera if not for the red dot and a hefty price tag. Ironically, the last thing Leica is related to is photography. It's an item for Wine Connoisseur or Golf magazine.
Some women throw a lot of money on diamond pendants, some men -- on Leica cameras, the purpose of both is to impress others. If you are interested in taking photos, on the other hand, there are a lot better choices out there.

@tassienick
You can use 35mm cameras from Leica, Voigtlander or Zeiss; also, the discontinued digital Ricoh GXR + A12 M module, available in the used market, or any full-frame Sony A7 series with an adapter.

"Enjoy photography" at $6.5K?? Do you think that this is the *only* camera that allows you to enjoy photography??? Has Leica released drugs to keep their followers compliant to the company's marketing strategy...?

Film Leica cameras made sense. These products don't. But Leica has to survive as a company and this is what they've come up with since they were rescued from bankruptcy, a decade or so ago; they could do better, however, much better than this! Their digital camera know-how progress is painfully slow.

The Signature Editions made more sense.

For Hawks' sake! Let anyone with an ounce of respect to Tsubasa shareholders read this and similar forums and inform the "magicians" at the marketing dept of an imminent retail disaster. The nerve of some people...!!!

No, thanks, Meyer Optik! I'd rather spent a *fraction* of that amount on a fast Voigtlander (50/1.1).

Ricoh, bring back the GXR with an updated Leica M sensor mount-module for under $1000 or so. It would be an instant hit.

This is important news. Fujifilm is making a difference!

At least, there is a good enough and big enough SONY now to "handle" those huge A-mount lenses. :-)

In reply to:

RStyga: Camera or no camera, an iPhone without a standard 3.5" earphone jack is plain bad decision-making. What will happen to those millions of current and potential users who own or about to purchase a pair (or two) of Hi-Fi headphones/earphones; change brand, avoid these models?

It is the same argument for having a single port on the new MacBook. Let me be very blunt: who said that an adapter dangling down like a lost erection is as good and practical as having an embedded port?
