On article Hot mess: Remembering the Leica M8 (155 comments in total)

At least there WAS an M8. Zeiss never bothered. RD-1......I would take an M8 over the RD1. And the M8 quickly began to produce iconic images, though most were BW, it's true. TYG everyone is not on the buzz killing path of unorganized options, tiny TVs, and a throw away mentality.

What other digital camera of the time is worth more than a M8 today?

On article 2017 Roundup: Fixed Prime Lens Cameras (464 comments in total)

Another bizarre roundup. LOL

Let's see the RX1rii untouchable in image quality, legendary among pros, and is actually in many pro bags, but Fuji is spending more ad money at DPI?

OK the Fuji is probably more fun to use and does fine. But cmon.

On article Fujifilm GFX 50S vs Pentax 645Z vs Hasselblad X1D (348 comments in total)

I bet there are more Leica S in the wild than any of these cameras. That would have been an interesting addition to the review.

On article Fujifilm GFX 50S Review: Modern MF (905 comments in total)

Well probably deserved a Gold, as have many cameras like the original A7 and A7r, and Nex-5, which broke ground but you missed it. LOL

They both look very much like what they are not. ;)

You have to love all the little trolls knashing teeth and trying to comprehend what has just happened. If the M10 can shoot at ISO 6400 as claimed, that, combined with the classic M6 footprint, big OVF, nice EVF and tools will easily make it the 2017 "camera of the year".

The bloated ugly Canikons and Nex-like medium format Fujis and Hassies will just knash their teeth in the shawdows as M10s are carried ON the runways around the world in the next months. Solms just made a supermodel, and the whole world is about to "read all about it".

You can't overstate the success of the M10 for Leica. After trashing the very nice SL, DPR is peeing their pants over this camera and "editing DNGs to taste".

I love it. :)

I think DP review should be required to actually complete their M9 review before being allowed to discuss this camera.

On article Comparison Review: Sony FE 50mm F1.4 ZA vs 55mm F1.8 ZA (261 comments in total)

Missed this but have to say: finally a true infinity shot and comparison and not some stupid short range chart. TYG :)

uhoh07: You got everything but the Kitchen sink and Leica M in here. What on earth disqualified the M, as it is widely used by pros on news beats, studios, and the street today, and supports the best prime lens set in the world? No autofocus to analyze, I guess. LOL

A7rii as best ll rounder? If you do not mind overpriced decentered lenses, and no long primes, maybe. Good sensor, I agree, as is the A7S i and ii.

And i suppose the "interchangeable lens" caveat for cameras over 2K is nice as it obviates need to mention the best still camera Sony has ever made, the 21'st century Ermanox known as the RX1rii, also in plenty of pro bags.

Well this is the site which never did a full review of the M9, so what do I expect?

PS: I need to update my remarks about de-centered Sony Lenses. While this has been a serious issue, Roger at lensrentals shows that variance is much improved on a number of newer lenses, like the GM 24-70. In addition the variance of some older models, while not fantastic, is well within norms, i.e. 16-35 and 55/1.8. Watch out for the 90 macro and 35/1.4 though. LOL

On article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review (2673 comments in total)

What I find interesting is the stark contrast in the very open minded review of the new K1 and the extremely harsh review of the Leica SL.

Perhaps for comparison sake you might find the small person in whose hands you placed the SL and put the K1 there as well ;)

A Kolari A7r2 and one of these adapters would be pretty sweet :)

On a photo in the Leica SL Typ 601 Real-world Samples Gallery sample gallery (1 comment in total)

Please tell me you did not edit this image. Incredible camera, fantastic lens, not a terrible frame at all, but either it's untouched or very poor editing.

In reply to:

uhoh07: Why do you put the camera in the hands of a small person as a cover photo? You think that's clever? It's a disgusting bash, like one might expect on some low class political website.

Probably the most unprofessional image I've ever seen here, and that is saying something.

Yes the camera is bigger than the A7, you don't have to cram that down our throats. You insult the camera and the model. But I'm sure the author is just giggling since your misleading shot has gone viral.

The tactic of purposefully making a product appear worse than reality is unbelievable, from a place which purports to offer journalism. It's the opposite.

An accurate image. You would not believe it's the same camera.

Of course, accurate images are everywhere.

Except here.

On article Sony brings uncompressed Raw to a7S II, a7R II and... (562 comments in total)
In reply to:

uhoh07: Earth to Sony: really?

We've cried about the issue since 2010. Now you offer real RAWs in the A7SII?

Take responsibility, respect your customers, and give, at least, support to all A7 cameras. Already.

Then you have been living under a rock, sorry. I suggest you become a member at Fred Miranda. Sony Raws are awful to edit compared to M9, which has much bigger files than the A7 and shadows can be brought up with little noise. Touch a slider with a sony raw and get ready for some new noise.

On article Leica M9 users report sensor corrosion issue (379 comments in total)
In reply to:

uhoh07: Also, why has the M9, MM or 240 have never, as far as I can tell, received a full review on this site? I did see an M8 review, and M9 preview, and a four page romp "shooting with the M9-P."

Love it or hate them, these are benchmark digital systems and can be easily rented, one has to wonder why such short shrift at DP?

Preferably such review would be done with the help of a working Leica pro, to avoid the all to common DP foible of "I can't get used to where they put such and such button".

The Leica takes practice to use effectively. I bought the M9 solely for the results with RF wide glass, and at first found the focus and framing method difficult real world. But 11 months later I far prefer the M9 to frame and focus over my A7 even at high speed.

Most hysterical is the DXO rating of the M9 sensor, which simply proves their numbers measure values which are irrelevant to many of us, and certainly have nothing at all to do with how sharp an image will be with a lens attached.

LOL A clueless critique backed by smug ignorance. Leica-bashing personified. :)

@RS The sony is the clearly inferior sensor, sorry. I have both cameras, do you? If not what on earth do you base such an opinion upon? A website? Somebody's numbers? No substitute for first hand experience, sorry, and no basis for informed opinion.
