km25: This looks like a great sensor for Fuji. For APS-C this an excellent sensor. The NX cameras seem very nice, but this sensor would be killer in a Fuji XT-2 or Pro 2. Even without Trans -X.
Fuji make a deal with Samsung!

That I can not tell you.That part of photography still belongs to the DSLRs.

You can keep the video, I personally do not need it. You can put two batteries into the XT-1. I would rather over pay bit for camera with the controls al a Fuji or any close to. All most forgot the the real good EVF.

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

A bunch of interesting responses, The biggest question is, is one lens enough. I would more then likely get the Leica. EVF and camera layout VS 40MP and 4K movies. Cost, it is a Leica! It should be an honor to pay more, not really.

Leica begets Leica. The camera needs some improvements, in JPEG and noise/dynamic control. From would go a long way on that. Yes the camera is $7500.00, the Zoom lens, never was Leica strong point is an OK Zoom lens, the primes will be a lot better. Oh and if you have Leica glass already, you can use it. Leica mostly makes cameras for photographers with a deep wallet and for artist who like the way they make cameras. You can buy a D810 or a Sony A7R11. The former is a great camera, the latter a fine image maker. But a lot of people may suffer with Leica sensor short comings, because of glass. Just handle a Leica lens and you see why they are the bench mark.

km25: This is Leica's first camera of this type. The zoom is not going to as sharp as the primes and remember if you are a Leica owner, say M, your lens will be less then $400.00, just use your M lens. In real world use all of these camera are in the same ballpark. Give Leica chance for firmware up grades, the RAWS of all are very close.I remember the Fuji cameras when they first came out, all the up grades to get them to where they are today. Why I put up with all the hardships was that the Fuji was made so well and gave me the operation lay out I like. Firmware up grades saved the day. They Nikon D750 is fine camera, it is a DSLR. The only good point about the Sonys are their sensors. The cameras are second rate. Shutter bounce, overheating and poor PASM, Playstation operation design. Only the sensor saves the camera. Leica may do well. Bet ya it is made in Germany.

The A7 series camera would do well to have a shutter speed dial. Or a small window to show the user what the status of the camera setting are. If you do understand why this is important to me and others, it was more then likely your first camera was an IPhone. My first pro camera was a CZ Ikon 6x6 folding camera. Sony needs photographers to design their cameras, not the TV people.Sensors are super great, the A7 series takes great images, but........

Sony fine marker of sensors. But not cameras. Electronic first curtain used to solve the shutter bounce, why not just make a good shutter. But when you look at a camera like Fuji, before you use it you have idea what it is going to do. Even Nikon and Canon DSLRs have little LCD windows to give you the basics. The Sony point and shoot, DX100 IV ( I hope that is right ) Handles very much the same as the A7R11. I do not like p&s cameras

You are how old? Cameras back when for me had shutter and F stop dials. Sensors were a few bucks. PASM to stands for nothing. I want to know what the camera is set for. What F stop, want shutter speed and the ASA. I may not want the camera feels like giving me. And I what to look down at the camera, preset and know what I want. DOF or high shutter speed. I want to take the picture, not the camera as in point and shoot.

The Leica has to par rates with the other 24MP sensors. A FF with less MPs would have better high ISO noise. The JPEGs on Leica are not good. The other companies seem to do much better. The 116 seems sharper then the 106 by a little, maybe lens. The Nikon does the best in JPEG land. But JPEG is a software/firmware repairable problem. As far as cost Leica is Leica. The color from the Leica is very good in RAW, needs work in JPEG. It's biggest advantage is that it uses a good camera useably. That it already can handle carload of lens. But a Nikon D750 with the upper level of lens for it is a much better buy.

On article A lot to Leica? Hands-on with the Leica SL (Typ 601) (1514 comments in total)

Ok, look at my comments about the Sony A7R11, see that little LCD screen on top. Well Sony this how a camera without dial, as in shutter speed. It has a huge battery. It is a on the large size. It will take great photos. Oh by the way it costs a lot . It has to, it is a Leica.This system will be their further, the mount will not change, but cameras will. It is for them Leica folks.

On article Second time lucky? A closer look at Sony's new RX1R II (542 comments in total)

The EVF is better then a pop up flash, what are the specs? I looks to be a bit of a pain. I hear this sensor can get hot. 40mps are better then 24mps, but do you really need it. PASM, with the pop up EVF. A FF RX100 VX. I would rather have the Leica and give up the MPs.

This is good. Not a Sony hater, but a front running sensor maker, not so good at making cameras.

The QB drops back, if he makes it will 98 yard bomb and the Super Bowel. The biggest up set of all times. He goes back to pass and pumps out perfect pass to his wide receiver, as the receiver dives for the pass, a still photographer (you) sees it in your Nikon D4s viewer one of the greatest catches all of time. You were at the right spot at right time with best FL for making this a picture that will reside in the NFL Hall of Fame, but it is for not for a big red X appears in your viewer telling too many people have shot pictures here. The police in Japan take you before you can start your destruction of the Nikon factories.
If you think this was either too long or senseless, well it is in keeping with situation. A slow week DP.

In reply to:

km25: Sorry if I step on toes. The images would more vivid and lively, if the subjects were. The problem with "real world" images are, they need be well, less real and more special. I am sure the old Sony RX1R is a good camera with a fine lens. The Leica should also be the same, come on how bad do you think Leica lens are and the people at leica know what sharp is. The bad part of the Q is price, but Leica has never known for bargain prices. The Leica Q is a better operating camera then Sony. It has a EVF, as part of the camera that is Hi Rez. The Leaf sutter also lends it's self to this kind of camera, not for race car photography, unless they a standing still. I think the Q is a better camera then these images show. It is amore advanced camera then The Sony Rx1r.

The Rx1 is not cheap, it does a fine CZ lens. But the EVF is an add on of lower quality then the Leica. I use Fuji and my M7. The Leica is going in the right direction for them, I do not need a lot of lens nor a big oufit. I am waiting to see what each company does. I am very happy with 16MP of Fuji in APS-C. Film is just too much work for me at my age. I will wait and see what unfolds in the few months.

What Fuji needs, a new sensor. Maybe 1/8000. It sure does not need glass, it's lens are from very good ( only a few) to excellent (most). Fuji should get a good sensor, like Samsung.

On photo SS_012_f2.8_200 in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

I am so glad that Fuji has made another super fine lens. I both happy and sad. I am sad because I cannot find a reason to buy the lens, which brings me to happy part I have a Leica 90mm APO Summcron F/2.0 Is it better then this lens, maybe, not by much. I paid just under $3k years ago, the are now closer to $4k.So when all of moan about how costly Fuji glass is just compare prices to other high Q glass.
