In reply to:

panchorancho: I like my Nikon 105mm 2.5 AIS that I got for cheap. Slap it on a Techart AF adapter on a current Sony body and you got a cheap 100-105mm portrait lens that looks just as good with auto focus!

and one best lens Nikon ever made.

Maybe Leica is going down the road of listening to it's users, in this case possible users. If a camera has a draw back that a frimware can solve you would imagine the manufacture would write that frimware. and for 7 grand per camera you would thin so.

Why not, Just think, you can have a back-up body. Or just think you load one with color film and one with B&W film. I just have these demons..heeee

This is badly needed camera for Leica. It puts them ballpark.

Does it take weeks and weeks learn the menu?

Just say, Ansol Adams. You editing a picture of your girl/boyfriend, You say " Make him/her cute". The picture does not change, but in real life the subject does become cute. Now that's a movie!

Digital is fast and perhaps a better creator of detail. Digital will give a slow film all the way up to fast film. Films have "looks" that can be part of the JPEG process. You change, undo with RAW. Therefore an Ape is able take picture of ones self, a selfy.
In the days of film, to create a proper exposure and properly focus took skill and knowledge. To day, it is more Ape like. Did Joe who has no talent and no skill ( sorry to all out there named Joe), just push the button as in those millions of monkeys
and those millions typewrites creating a War and Peace.
With film you got to know, your light ISO. Got to know lens and what will do, F stops and DOF. You got a roll ASA 200 and you knew what your after. Good God you may have read a light meter and use a gray card. It is call skill and artistry. Not saying Dig world is void of it, it's just all those monkeys.

The Mamyia RZ(RB)6x7 of digital cameras. Not a street camera. An interesting tool.

Kirppu: Sony should stop making cameras and double the price of their sensors.

OK, so at football games they are shooting with Sonys, or maybe that is Canon and Nikon. They do not have IS on sensor. For your info. Leica make long teles for their R8/9. They had front parts and rear parts for different focal lengths. The were MF. The Lens and construction was better the Canon/Nikon, they were AF.
Many a pro in the back bush loved both. The leica lens were tuffer and sharper.
Them pros got pictures from them old lens, without IS.

If you do not understand just looking at the top of any camera and know where you are. You are going to miss shots. The IS is a fine idea. But Lens IS is over all better. Also there is no free lunch. shooting at shutter that is safe for subject, lens and basic camera movement is the better answer. IS has it's points and a PRO can out do it.

I agree with the first part. Look at Fuji/Leica with their up front dials. Even the other companies the use PASM, have a small, but see able LCD to show you the important stuff you need to know. The only thing Sony cameras have going for them are their sensors all else, Playstation. Lens are good, but it is not part of camera control.

km25: That "Red Dot" is so close to rip off of Leica. In the far east Leica are loved. So it will sell there, here?

98% of a Leica ? I really doubt that. It looks like nice little camera, it's main selling point will be the 'Red Dot" for fashion sake.

km25: Also more "air" would lend to a cooler running camera.

Read my original statement, the word is help, not solve. Air flow over a heat sink is a way of removing heat, as in an air cool engine. A large camera with extra air space will run cooler then a small compact camera, producing the same heat. Again it helps.

mmarian: Absolutely mind boggling and fascinating technology!!

It keeps out water, it is not well vented. But some air moves around, the mirror would see to that. Air can go were water cannot. It would help.

It is a phone, not a DSLR. It is the new point and shoot for everyman (women). It is a Brownie Starmite.

I had no idea they were still producing lens. Many of a fine or classic motion picture was shoot using Cooke's lens. These lens are rarely bought, the are rented, as with other movie cameras.
