NemanRa: Leica SL + Leica Summilux-SL 50mm F1.4 ASPH = >$12,000

Now let's see other options:
1. Fujifilm GFX 50S + GF 63mm f/2.8 R + GF 32-64mm f/4 R + GF 120mm f/4 Macro
= $12,800
2. Alpha 7R II + FE 50mm f/1.4 + FE 85mm f/1.4 GM + FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM + Batis 18 and 25mm
= <$12,000
3. Canon 5DS + Canon 1DX II + EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM + EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II
= <$12,000
4. Nikon D810 + Nikon D500 + Nikon D5 + lenses
= <$12,000

I really like the modern look of this camera, but the price is an arm and a leg...
Even medium format Fuji, Hasselblad and Pentax with the state of the art sensors are cheaper...
Regards

Other option for whom?

NJOceanView: Did I miss the part where you shoot something six ISO stops too low and push it back to normal to show how much better this is than a Canon?

@Chris. Thank you

@Rishi. Sorry, but I too can't find it. I found it via 1DXII review. There is no link on menus (like Image comparison tool). To be sure: I'm refering to RAW Dynamic Range tool.

brycesteiner: The sample galleries have gotten about as exciting as watching my Dodge rust. Nothing against DP. It's just the cameras are all very good. The differences come down to 8000 ISO - which is what - 1% of the shots?

@ED. Apologies. Misunderstanding.

Sanjeev Das: 25 f/2 on m43 is 50 f/4 on FF. I don't see what this setup gives me over the Sony A7R2 and 55/1.8 which is a smaller setup.

If "better image quality, shallower DOF and and the four times larger sensor" makes you a better photographer you are sooo lucky..

Sorry, but if you don't see something, you may (I said MAY) need better vision

gianstam: A question for all of you guys who realize that this camera is technically better, the other has better ISO the third has better long lenses and so on: If someone gave you as a (don't sell it) gift the M10 or the other camera, which one would you get?

@NoRules: I'm a bit jealous :-)
Anyway what you said is very very interesting

Hey guys... It's not that bad.
Not great either. But the center resolution may cover videographers.

Sharpening and chromatic aberrations correction only

If one photo can prove the optical quality of a lens then this is a very good one. The very good center resolution and the excellent quality of out of focus area of the first lady's photo prove that

The GH1 had two basic points
1. The banding at high (arround 1600 & up) ISO
2. The ability to use custom (hacked) firmwares. Brilland.

Island Golfer: SNORE.................... The Digic VII processor is a nice touch. But, where's the 24 mm lens????? Wake me when Canon decides to really upgrade this camera!

Ok, sleep well. We are here.

Doesn't matter what they say. It matters how they write (canNon's) name

entoman: I'd just like to say how good it is to actually have fast pertinent replies direct from Hasselblad on this thread.

If only other manufacturers would do the same!

And it's not the first time. Kudos

Mister Joseph: You can probably get a lot better IQ for a lot less money with a Pentax rig.

Mister Joseph, I agree that a Pentax can give you (not a lot but) better IQ. But not into the storm. Fast and accurate AF is required. Also a real weather sealed camera (OK, my experience includes K20D only).

Dear Dan, good and informative job.
