maxnimo: Now the real question is - will this lens be able to take a better image of a distant bear than let's say a Canon or a Sony or a Fujinon lens?

The Leica lens is not constant F2.8. I'm pretty sure that the Sigma 100-300 F4, a true gem, is only a fraction of Leica's price.

Not necessarily, no. Perhaps a bit but in no way worth the price and size/weight trade off.

Bargain-size, bargain-price...

Jeff Seltzer: I actually own the camera. As a professional photographer, I can say it's my most favorite camera ever owned. The OVF is not a gimmick, and I like to use it in conjunction with the EVF. The camera's handling is great, and images are fantastic. It's more fun and engaging to use than my old Canon DSLRs. It might not win on every objective spec, but the whole is more than the sum of the parts. It's a great camera. Is it "worth" the price? Value is subjective. I think it's worth it.

@darngooddesign - is this certain? I've read a lot of disputes about it, i.e., whether X-Pro2 is free of that problem...

RAW developer used? Iridient?

Have you noticed any 'waxy skin' image output on JPG files?

Gazeomon: What I don't get is the omission of an articulated screen on this type of camera at this price point. I think it's otherwise a good camera (although not really great or outstanding) but not being able to easily shoot from the hip or at difficult angles would be a deal breaker for me. Luckily there is a lot of choice out there.

I second that.

DPR:
In the spec comparison, you omitted the feature 'weather-sealing', why? Don't you think it's important?

RStyga: What a sorry excuse of an update from Sony. As other members indicated, ALL A7 series cameras should have an uncompressed RAW option. Sony, wake up!

Yes, I'm pretty certain. Do you have reasons to think otherwise?

Who in their right mind would accuse them of releasing unfinished products?? It's called "improvement", Richard, and "respect for the customer". A FW update always act positively for the company. I don't think any of Ricoh GR's numerous FW updates, for instance, were at any time seen as an indication of 'unfinished product'.

On article On assignment: the Leica Q at a Portland wedding (206 comments in total)

The photos are color-oversaturated and harsh; was this intentional? I understand it's a matter of style, but they look dark, harsh and gloomy; not exactly the stuff of weddings. I would not buy the Q based on these photos.

On article CP+ 2016: Hands-on with new Sigma SD cameras and lenses (313 comments in total)

"We're hoping that the slow, hesitant AF that we experienced is a symptom of these early, pre-production cameras [...]"
I'm afraid it won't be a symptom but a characteristic. At least (and that is very important) by using a CDAF/sensor-based PDAF there will be no more AF accuracy issues that all SD DSLRs were plagued by.

I wish they could make this a F2.8-4 and without much difference in volume. :-)

Good news, undoubtedly; however, it would be wiser to release these as purely DSLM cameras without the DSLR adapter embedded in the body but offered as an add-on conventional adapter (included, of course, in the box). As they are released, now, are similar to the Pentax K-01: not DSLR, not entirely DSLM. Using *exclusively* DSLR lenses on a DSLM body is not a good idea. IF (big IF) they decide to design and release a new DSLM mount in the future, these cameras would become obsolete.

I'm not talking about the Hungarian woman... What's wrong with your IQ, dropped suddenly? News channels broadcast news, where do YOU get informed about the situation in the world? Newspapers, news channels, Internet etc. Unless you travel the world and watch it first hand... Genius..

It was on mainstream Greek news, no conspiracy channels. You don't have to believe me and I don't care whether you believe it or not.
