goactive: I shoot for a living and almost never use any of the things they tested out on jobs, I shoot AF-S 99% of the time for weddings, portraits, and sports everything. Never have a problem with out of focus images. So to me, this is just a so what amount of things I would not be using anyway. I also expect the Z6 to be a little better as well that is what I am getting.

I shoot also professionally and i don't like to look trough a tv- finder any way.

On article Photokina 2018: hands-on with the Leica S3 (467 comments in total)
In reply to:

Photomonkey: The Leica S has always been a beautiful example of modern European design.
Having handled and shot with them I found them to be a delight to use.
Roughly comparable to my FF Canons but with a brilliant finder and butter smooth operation.
OK it is expensive, but so would be any Nikon or Canon if they were produced in similar numbers. Leica, OTOH has wisely offered unique features such as a slightly larger sensor that permits higher quality on a per MP basis and they offer a startlingly extensive line of lenses, many with leaf shutters.
The LS are nod to pros who use flash and prefer not to be limited by the kludgy workarounds of HSS. In addition, every lens they offer would be a reference standard for IQ by any other maker. The difference is that every lens in their line is of that caliber.
So, yeah, they are expensive. The real surprise is that they have created a system that is uniformly excellent yet is as inexpensive as it is.

Its expensive because in Europe they keep high employee salary.
Only with high salary the people can buy thinks and so the circle of economy keep running.
The people around the world they didn't understand that. They want cheap price for thinks but high salary for them self's, which its not possible.

One of most important aspect with those Google pixels cameras, is that android is an open platform to many manufacturer, without restrictions, with the best communication capability - connectivity, and soon or latter is the only one who survive.
Of course an open platform have the risk of many unstable factors, but this is the cost of freedom which i prefer over restrictions.

''intelligent enough'' is those who understand that a system can connect with everything, wifi - usb or whatever, is superior to a system that connect with a fewer ways.

elefteriadis alexandros: Blown highlight as usual with all digital cameras. Nothing ''special'' here.
After almost two decades of ''innovation'' and the problem persist.

My job is to develop raw files every day in lightroom from weddings photographers.
Nothing come close to Fuji S3 - S5, even the best of Full frame cameras.
Its amazing how well they keep under control the white dress of brides.
Its a shame that Fuji stop to developing their own super CCD sensors and switch to Sony crap-sors.

Only Fuji s3 and s5 pro with they’re own special sensor with dual pixels can come close to film. I don’t see something like this here.

If they can't handle well in JPG where the tonality is complete linear, you have to squeeze it from Raw, but then arise flat and unnatural results, the reasons all HDR look plastic and fake.

elefteriadis alexandros: Equal picture quality as all cameras. Need more than a decade to see real improvement.
The rest is advertising.

This is a personal preference, and most of them stay with Canon because in previous decades Canon AF system is superior to Nikon and is hard to abandoned all this gear to switch again.
But today, Nikon sensors is superior in DR which is the Achilles' heel in digital photography.
When you recovery highlight both Nikon and Canon the give both about 2-2,4 stop headroom, but you can pull more tonality from shadows in Nikon.

Certainly. I see also different from 5dIV to EOS 1DX MarkII, as also from Nikon 750 to 850, but non of them is so big that you can't manipulate with the correct profile.

Yes, it is my job. I develop raw files in lightroom from weddings photographers and i have test it most of them from Nikon, Canon, Sony, Fuji e.t.c.
Except that the mirrorless have better exposure systems because they read directly from sensors, there isn't any significant different in picture quality.

Its easy for a lens of this size to perform well, the challenge is to keep size and weight low.
