RStyga: I wish Hassleblad would hire a Pentax or Mamiya/Leaf industrial designer - this is one ugly piece of gear.

Nice to hold, perhaps; nice to look at, doubtful.

Mamiya 645AFD IIIl, for example, was beautifully designed:

RStyga: Fujifilm, you'd better take your time. It's far, far better to delay, a few months even, and get it right than rush to release a potentially problematic product.

Nobody from the Sony camp seems to care about considering the quality of Fujinon lenses, especially when compared to the corresponding Sony ones.

Very well done, Fujifilm! Well done, too, for releasing a completely updated manual instead a documentation patch! Excellent move in all counts.

They are a long way from debugging this camera. Instead of fixing some bugs, they release more "features" in an effort to catch up with competition and improve marketability. Newsflash, they are light years behind competition... Not that they take notice.. If they fix the bugs, reduce by around 50% the ridiculous and unjustified prices of their lenses and 30-40% of the T body they can hope to compete in the mirrorless (DSLM) market. Until that time, they'll be the stuff of ...laughter (sorry, the "45-minute polished stuff of laughter).

RStyga: I can just see clearer now the mirrorless advantage on these lenses...

I believe you are incorrect. Take a look at lenses including the Sigma 60/2.8 Art DN (M4/3, E), Fujifilm 60/2.4 Macro, Voigtlander 75/1.8 and 75/2.5. Do they look similar in volume to the corresponding FE primes to you?

RStyga: Keeping the resolution at 20MP in a newly developed sensor we expect significant DR gain and noise suppression or else...

Of course you need increased DR in weddings! And as for photojournalism you need ruggedness and portability, and there are many cameras on the market that offer weather resistance and compact size without 1.5kg weight and a $6K price!!

Since when a huge and heavy brick is recommended in photojournalism and weddings? Is this a joke?? Do you know what wedding photographers and photojournalists use and would love to use? What an ignorant comment...

At last! A new Leica limited edition!

The only ergonomic issue I can see so far is the way the LCD tilt mechanism has been implemented: it forces you to place the LCD to the side of the body and then rotate it in order to tilt the LCD upwards or downwards. Thus, when you want - for example - to take a waist-level shot the camera becomes twice in length and the balance as well as the steady grip goes out the window. In my opinion, P5 has the right implementation, but, alas, they had to please the selfie bunch...

Steve Huff? Great source... I'll take the truly unbiased verdict of Chris Niccolls and Jordan Drake who awarded SL the 2nd worst camera of 2015. Bye, now.

Well done, Olympus! Superb design, great specs, looks like a winner!

I think I'd better bundle your "unbiased" opinions with HAR's and save me some time.

RStyga: A self-serving competition.... pass.

What "is all" is that we have different viewpoints. I'm not interested in writing an essay about the obvious. You see it not, I see it well. As for the alleged objectivity and targeted opinions of HA-RAW, well, I (and many others, as is recorded amply in the forum) beg to differ and thus have mostly stopped wasting time engaging in conversations with that member: once I or another DPR member post something with the slightest negative nuance about Leica, HAR jumps into to defend the brand...
