Androole: The thing that most people don't seem to be discussing is price point. The AF tracking may not be as supremely perfect as the D5 (though apparently just as good as the 1DX II), but in terms of market segmentation, at $4500 this is closer to the $3500 5D IV than it is to the $6000 1DX II.

So yeah, you should expect some trade-offs. But maybe it would be interesting to also seem comparisons to the more "mid-range" Canon and Nikon FF DSLRs (5D IV and D750) rather than just the ultimate top-of-the-line $6K pro beasts. Maybe the outcomes would be the same, but I think it would be very illustrative...

Presumably there will be a Nikon D760 at some point soon, possibly with the D5 AF system. But we can also count on such a camera coming in at least $2500, given the general trend in camera pricing. Maybe a D620 will materialize to move into the D750 slot. Prices sure aren't going to come down, that's for certain...

You need to add the lens kit price. 16-35, 24-70, 70-200, 400/500 etc.
Body alone cant do much.

rob579: Thanks for not mentioning the om-1. I bought one in 1978 to replace a perfectly good brick of a camera, the miranda sensorflex, thinking "elegant" was worth the money. OM-1was fussiest camera I ever owned, and expensive. I got fed up and replaced it with the Nikon AE, I got better photos as a result, and never missed the OM-1. I do miss the Miranda. Maybe the later OM models were better, nothing against Olympus.

I had om2, now the 1, both totally reliable and a joy to use.

Why all this headache? for cleaner shadow detail?

skookum8: Hopefully this shakes things up at Nikon - they just can't operate as they have been (imho a great engineering company run by accountants). FWIW, Google Trends (which compares keyword searches at the worldwide and country level) shows the ascendency in interest in "Sony mirrorless " versus "Nikon DSLR":
https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?q=sony%20mirrorless,nikon%20slr,canon%20slr

For an explanation of what Google Trends measures - https://medium.com/google-news-lab/what-is-google-trends-data-and-what-does-it-mean-b48f07342ee8

Take the Google Trends and NPD data as certainly not definitive but it reflects a trend that Nikon needs to aggressively address this year.

Or add the word "Leica":
https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?q=sony%20mirrorless,nikon%20dslr,canon%20dslr,Leica
This has no meaning.

At least it had a 100 MP sensor for this kind of money.
Another lifestyle toy from Leica.

In reply to:

scastle: I'm curious to see how the professional world views this camera. If enough people don't go for it then Leica will not recover their development costs. If the ergonomics are really that awful I don't see much hope, unless some advantage is offered that wasn't mentioned in the review.

Its a lifestyle camera for the rich and famous, and other oligarchs...

The more competition to the Sony RX100, the better for us humans.

In reply to:

tkbslc: It seems like real world that the G7X lens is much more ideal if you are going to shoot pictures of people. It is a lot faster at 30-45mm equivalent for street style shots and then has a lens that actually extends out to the portrait ranges with the ability to give a little bg blur.

The LX10 has much faster 24mm equivalent only, and that seems more likely to be scenery type shots that could just use OIS to compensate anyway.

RX100 loses to both for aperture and range, but probably has the sharpest lens...

its crap at the 70mm edge.

Is it possible to take RAW photos with an Android phone, like the Samsung s4?

Too contrasty.

Iamnotarobot: I guess there is nothing really special about his cameras because most of his creativity came out of his extensive/obsessive darkroom work. It could be said that he was the father of photoshop with his obsessive level of selective dodge & burn & image post alteration/manipulation...

the word obsessive doesn't seem right...
