On article 2015 Roundups: Fixed Prime Lens Cameras (231 comments in total)

I have been into photography for a long time and have had many, many cameras. I have had several Leica M's (M6 twice over a 12 year period, M8 and M9) and found it was the camera I tried to love but never did. I decided to give Leica one more try with the Q and I really like it! It is a joy for street photography. I love the controls and feel of the camera and the images are amazing. Only thing I wish it had is a tilt screen though I realize that is not Leica like. Hopefully a firmware update will improve the menus and allow reprograming some buttons. The Fuji X100 series is great too for the price. I still have my original Sony RX1 though I rarely use it and will likely sell it and get a RX1RII.

Canon has lost relevance.

Nice to see this on DP Review. I like Eric Kim's articles on photographers, they are really good introductions and often go in depth about photographers known for street photography. There are many more on his website I especially enjoyed reading about Garry Winogrand and Diane Arbus, two of my favorite photographers.

I'm deleting my account before that date. Shame on Facebook and Instagram for abusing the rights of photographers and creatives and taking advantage of their large social network base. They will learn, they will probably lose half their members by doing this. Anyone who cares about their photography will not allow this.

I looked at this lens at Photo Plus this week. Light, smooth, focuses fast and close. Can't wait to get one!

Looks good on paper. Love 35mm lenses! This camera is obviously aimed at Leica owners/street photographers/photojournalists. Many who could buy one of these by merely selling a lens. However Leica people are used to getting the entire package not paying extra for lens hoods and this kind of nickel and dime on expensive goods is annoying to say the least. It seems like they could have merged the NEX7 viewfinder technology into this and had a better camera than one with an external OVF.

On article Canon EOS M hands-on preview (566 comments in total)

Glad to see Canon went with APS-C instead of a smaller sensor like the Nikon 1. I would like to see the lens map for the next year. I find it odd the part about mirror less cameras struggling to make headway in the US market. I thought Olympus, Panasonic and Sony were really breaking some ground in the mirror less arena.

I hope the red one is available in the USA.

Flickr needs better ideas and programmers. It still seems like a 2009 site. It needs to innovate. I still use it but wish it was better.

All DSLRs should have built in WiFi (especially the $3000 ones) at least the add on is only $60. But it looks weird sticking out the back. I like the Red one!

Sounds great! As an X100 and X10 owner I can't wait to get one to use with the new fuji lenses as well as some Leica M lenses. Fuji has really gone to the hearts of what photo enthusiasts and pro photographers really want, a small light camera with good glass and manual dials. I just hope the lens hoods come with the lenses, as I have already spent over $150 on the two hoods for my X100 and X10, I don't want to spend another $500 for these three.

Why are people comparing this to Leica in term of pricing? Leica M lenses start at $1500 and go up to over $10000 and an M9 is $6999 and an M9P is $7999. This whole kit is less than $4000.

Interesting get your feet wet intro to travel photography. I read through the comments too. DPReview comments are harsh. The title does say "Introduction" folks, lighten up. Thanks for the article Steve.
