Holger Bargen: The concept of a focus lens was first seen in Pentax F generation 1.7x converter that turned MF lenses into an AF-lens system together with the converter.

What about improvements about computational photography using multiple images into one like in-camera HDR, Pixel-Shft technology (Pentax) or in-camera stacking to get extended DOF (Panasonic).

But the most important feature of this decade is sensor technology to me - expecially if we look at high ISO capabilites. This was something that made my options as photographer pretty wide. More than higher resolution and everything else my step from Pentax K10D (which was a great camera that days) to K5 was like a step into a new world as it allowed me to do photos at light conditions without flash that were not possible before.

The sensor shift technology as image stabilisation otpion without adverse effects on IQ made this step even bigger.

ok - tnx 4 info

Leica makes very big profits with lenses, so they can joke by cameras.

On article Sony a7R IV added to studio test scene comparison (439 comments in total)

Pentax K1 II is better by low light.

Sorry folks - that's fact:

The market of photo-cellphones is growing every day, when market of photo-cameras is dying.

In the next ten years you'll see big old cameras only in museum. Pentax, Nikon, Canon & Co will be history.

TBLF: I know there are a lot of jokes posted here, but I seriously have felt that Panasonic already was the "budget Leica" option... and I'm not even going to mention the Zenit M, another supposed bargain at $5K for FF Leica copy... oops, just did. So, for Leica fans, maybe this isn't such a bad deal at $3995 for the body. Beats me, but I'm glad Leica is out there, still doing its thing. The world will be a less fun and quirky place if/when they go away.

Canyongazer: I don't understand why so many people feel compelled to make snide remarks about Leica prices.
Yes, it is expensive. So we've heard.
Yes, EVERYBODY already knows that and has for as long as they've been interested in photography.
That horse was dead, buried and thoroughly decomposed decades ago.
Why keep beating it?

No, I do not and never have owned a Leica nor any Leitz lens.

Who cares? Leica makes profit - others don't.

Mr Bolton: Most of the functionality and image quality of an XPro 2 and only two and a half times the price..

I'm saving up for the half sleeve tattoo and artisinal moustache wax to go with it.

dresner: "The moment in which you decide to purchase a Leica M changes your view of the world. And making the choice has never been easier: " Sounds like a movie trailer from the 1980's. Who does their marketing? It's still a 4,000US camera!! But their marketing department is talking like it's a $1000 camera.

So many negative (stupid??) comments .. but LEICA does not care about your "pro-critics".
They simply make profits & Company is better & better every year.

It will be used for producing fake news in politics. Imagine that someone makes "evidence" in which one of greats world leaders starts WW3! :o(

By Pixel Shift is Pentax K-1 II much better in higher ISO. & cheaper .. much cheaper.

Development of photo-mobile-phones is faster & faster every year. Does it make sense to buy any of them now? In few moth there will be many new & much better models ... Galaxy has already 4 back cameras + one front cmera (or two?). Huwei, Samsung, Pixel, I-phone .. by all AI make photos instead of u with Photoshop.

I'll just wait .. as I wrote once .. for photo-phone with 45 back cameras & AI which will cook a great dinner by itself for 25 persons in a single minute & take great photos of us eating dinner - everything by itself totally independent.
;o)))
In the meantime I'll rather use a decent not too heavy SLR like Oly or Fuji.
;o))))

Not yet .. but I know the company. If they put something on market it must be 1st class. I am shocked with simple design which no other camera has.
OK?
