Just noticed there isn't the usual three choices, I own one, I want one, I had one....
But seriously wow, that's some megapixels. I like that it's B&W. But way out of my money zone.

tmurph: To me it looks like a pre-production model. its as if Leica have rushed this onto the market to see if they can get the sales.
I state this because imagine buying one only for Leica about 6 months down the line bringing a Mk2 version out with a ergonomically better grip, rounded edges and so forth.
You mention the lenses being big and heavy and the combination of the two, body and lens, feeling awkward to handle. Again it all points to a rush job. Yes its typical Leica design with its minimalistic looks and controls but is it too early to go and get one?

I like the way my comments were cherry picked.
No I've not handled it, I just commented because I read the review. They are just my own comments with no disrespect intended. If you are a pro then yes, you are getting it for the quality so the price has no bearing, afterall you're making a living out of it so you must be getting your outlay back. But, if I maybe blunt, an amateur brought the camera then okay they have the money but to me, I use my gear as a keen hobbyist. There are those who buy Leica just for jewellery, so they look good to their rich friends. But I respect your comments because you obviously own it.

There are few people on here who take dirty washing in.
I noticed this on Facebook and the first thing I thought was fake...

I think its a cool idea, personally I hardly use my back screen if ever when I'm taking shots. It saves on battery power but if I need to look then I just put the pictures through the view finder to check how it looks. Most of the time though I wait till I download them to the computer. A bit backward regards using the tech that's available but who gives a damn?

This small collection of pictures are stunning.
Prince was, as you say an artist and then to be told by Prince that your work is art is great praise indeed.
Art at its best Brian, great pictures.

Nice but way too big and bulky, as usual the money at Canon and Nikon is being spent on DSLR tech.

On article Field Test: Brad Puet and the Fujifilm X-T10 (120 comments in total)

excellent video glad I brought my X-T10. I have a add on grip and a thumb grip that slides on to the flash bracket so the handling is much better. My wish for the new year is to get my hands on some of those superb lenses.

What a stunning shot. I know it has a lot to do with the photographer being there and seeing the opportunity and setting the camera up and all that entails but as far as the equipment goes the Canon 5D MkIII is turning into a bit of a legend.
Great shot and a great camera and lens.

On article Vantage Point: The aviation photography of Jon Pece (163 comments in total)

These are stunning air to air shots of military aircraft, yes they are used and have been used to bomb and destroy lives but such is the nature of these machines ( if nature is the right word) to be used in anger when the need arises.
Remember, this is a camera and photography site not a political sounding board.
By the way, those incredible photographic tools we all use contain electronics that were first tried in military hardware.

Look out for press photographers using this camera instead of a DSLR...

What I meant was, are diehard Canon and Nikon press photographers going to finally succumb to mirrorless technology with this camera and are they already using these camera's?
Your answer is perplexingly anoying.

On article Week in Review: Sony FTW (302 comments in total)

This is a jewel of a camera, I changed to mirrorless last year and have had no regrets. I hope that Panasonic and Olympus are watching and hopefully develop a new sensor and get rid of the oh so long in the tooth 16 mil they offer at the moment.
Sony are to be congratulated on pushing the mirrorless camera up to another level.
Alpha dog indeed.

On article Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 real-world samples (102 comments in total)

Got to say, there are some really stupid remarks on here.
When it comes to colour and how the camera deals with it, if you're not happy then change the settings slightly.
The debate about how the camera performed in lovely sunny conditions is totally irrelevant, why discus how the shot was taken? why not just enjoy the results and be done with it. If the camera performed really badly then surely the results would stand out like a sore thumb and no doubt the reviewer would also mention it.
At the end the camera was used to show what it can do and looking at the results it does what it says on the tin.
Discussing how and why the camera didn't do this or that is just complete waste of time.
Why do people on here always have to look at things at the minuscule level, oh no the photo of the guy being interviewed is not absolutely perfect, Panasonic...bin the camera it's no good....GENTS! STOP THE BORING COMMENTS, YOUR'RE PUTTING GLASS EYES TO SLEEP...

On article Hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 (485 comments in total)

I'll be getting one of these in the next few months, my G6 is nice enough and I've got to the point where using it has become second nature regards its function layout but I think its time for a change, One of the few gripes about the G6 is the DISP button on the back which is a pain in the rear. I inadvertently keep touching it and there's no way of making it redundant so hopefully either the on the G7 can be turned off or looking at the thumb rest it may not get in the way. Also, looking at the bottom plate there seems to be no provision for a battery grip which is a shame, who knows in the not too distant future Panasonic may have pity on me and release one, not holding my breath here. So far it looks a promising camera.

I love the way Canon call the 5Ds "specialist camera" as apposed to plebs like me who would, more than likely, use a none specialist camera.
Oh well there's me thinking that a camera, no matter what it can do regards its internal computer and sensor, is basically a box with a lens on that lets light onto a sensor or film. Hold it!..I just got it...its "specialist light" that's what this camera will only pick up yes?
Tec at canon...Hey boss whats with the hefty price tag?....Boss...don't worry we're calling it a specialist camera, it will sell like hot cakes, honest...and the hype goes on.
