princecody: I'd take this camera anyday of the week over a Sony. The lowlight is amazing. This lowlight video taken with the GH5S reminded me of the Dark Knight lol it was so dang good :) https://vimeo.com/249243942

While it does look good, I'm sure Christopher Nolan will disagree with you...

pauldv9: This so-called article (more like a paid astroturf shill piece for Unsplash) is so full of bull that I created an ID just to post a rebuttal. Usually, nothing surprises me anymore, but this one is just WAY out there. Apparently Dpreview will uncritically post just about anything these days.

Before I get started, I want to point out that it's odd timing that Unsplash has been getting some unfavorable coverage recently, and this "I love Unsplash and attribute all my success to them, all other websites suck" opinion just happened to pop up, unbidden.

Let's start with how much this dude is making. From the numbers he threw out there, he's making approx $25k a year doing photography, give or take. All of this, of course, is because of the wonderful generosity of Unsplash letting him post his full size images for free for anyone to download.

Switzerland, for those who don't know, is one of the most expensive countries in the world. $25k is literally minimum wage.

Continued in part 2.

It was Bruce Livingstone (according to wikipedia...)

Apple UK - battery replacement now £25 :-) announced later this morning.

Because someone with $25,000 to spare is a fool.... right...

golfhov: A lot of good cameras. I voted for one I do not even plan on owning. The a9. It is the only camera in this lineup that I see as groundbreaking. Most of the other entries are very nice follow ups

Captura: Where do you live? It's been readily available for weeks now....

I was going to mention the Fuji X30 - but they still go (used) for the price they were sold at the time it was discontinued... :-0

These are not the first AF lenses from Samyang - their 35mm f2.8 AF FE pancake lens came out during the summer...

davemac00: Another day, another "new" Leica lens. How many 50s does a system need?

It's like how many bicycles you need: n+1 (n being the number already owned)....

"Based on the Exakta Varex IIb" - Really??? - That was a left-handed camera with shutter release, film wind on and shutter speed control all on the left side of the camera. Does this have a non-returning reflex mirror as well?

Much better example photos than those supplied by Leica! Still a very expensive lens for what it is...
