starwolfy: Leica has way more taste when color and look is involved. This looks like a toy.

Leica is also several time more expensive. But I agree, this is thing is one ugly camera.

D200_4me: No thanks. I only need Lightroom (which is a product I've been very happy with for a few years now).

Its not a DAM like Lightroom. Its more a competitor of Photoshop.

florianpainke2: According to Amazon stats, preorders seem to be going just fine... It seems quite a few people are willing to pay 2k for a camera like this, no matter if others understand or not. :)
For now I'm happy with the e-m5 ii, but I know I will want the deep grip and more pro control layout at one point, maybe some time next year.
Honestly, I don't understand this debate at all. If you're not willing to pay the money, it's obviously not the camera for you. There's loads of other nice cameras out there. It's that simple. Why do you all make it your personal problem whether Olympus can sell these cameras at that price, or whether m4/3 is dead or not? Wasted time ...

Happens all the time to all high priced gear from Leica to Apple. Company releases gear with high price, forum warriors whine about price but market still buys said gear and company makes profit regardless.

They should have cut prices of their Macbook Pro instead.

PieterB: I just wonder why Mac users put up with all the idiocy from Apple.
If Windows machines would do the types of stupid stunts that Apple does, everybody would protest.

They design a beautiful, very nice looking very slim device. But in order to get all your peripherals working, you need tons of adapters. Unless you want to replace all your devices every time. Which is clearly what Apple hopes you will do.

And they give you a less functional device but charge you a couple of hundreds dollars more. And most Apple fan-boys seem to swallow this every time.
I can't get it. I think you have to be infected with the Apple bug to understand this.

But that Apple trend that form always goes before functionality just seems stupid. At least in my eyes.

You dont have to buy the Surface if you need an SD card slot there are many other powerful Windows notebooks with one.

Eric Calabros: I hate SD cards. Honestly I hate any card. Why should I remove the storage and put in another place to copy my files? Its damn too old school in 2016. Yea wifi implementation in almost any camera sucks. But its not Apple's fault. Why is Apple to blame for a Japanese problem?

We might be waiting for quite a while before we will be painlessly transferring our multi gig RAW files wirelessly.

Paniko: My '96 Testarossa had a fairly good cassette reader. Now, somebody at Ferrari tought that the new Aperta should not have one! HOW CAN I LISTEN MY MILLI VANILLI HITS?!
Ferrari is doomed! Enzo is turning in his grave! :D

Unlike the cassette tape, the sd card is not obsolite yet.

Hey Phil, have you tried wirelessly transfering 64gb worth of raw files yet?

Agreed that was a terrible move for Apple

Sannaborjeson: Despite my generally sceptical attitude to Leica, this one is a truly great camera. I can't justify it for myself but had a chance to shoot wit my friend's Q and was very much impressed with its speed, simplicity and outstanding colours.

Unlike sluggish rangefinders and re-badged Panasonics, Q looks like a totally timeless genuine masterpiece.

I agree. The Leica Q is certainly the camera that captures what Leica is all about, great image quality in a simple and elegant design.

For its target market, tripods are terribly inconvenient.

In reply to:

Lassoni: It might flip for selfies, but I think there's no excuse for any manufacturer (I'm looking at you samsung! Why no lx100 competition yet?) to leave VF out from their cameras

If you check the ads of this camera its marketed mostly to the non ethusiast crowd like my teenage niece or auntie who are addicted to selfies. I mean it has a pink version. These people don't care about evfs.

In reply to:

chj: "GF7’s 180 degree flip-up screen. It’s great for taking selfies, but not so useful if you’re trying to take overhead shots at a concert"

Just hold the camera upside down

Saw the same complaint in another review. Any decent photographer would have figured out this work around in a matter of seconds.

'Our primary goal in designing the camera was driven by a utilitarian approach, seeking a specialist grip material that would respond to the scale of the camera with millimetre precision. Following in-depth research into materials that have strong ‘gripping’ properties and are traditionally applied in other manufacturing industries, we decided on a red ‘ping pong’ rubber, usually used on table tennis bats. This material adds practical tactility to the camera, while simultaneously creating an entirely new haptic experience.’

You just got to love the audacious marketing speak.

AmateurSnaps: I don't get it. How are the wealthy wealthy, while still been stupid enough to buy this rubbish.

Lots of folks like trust fund babies out there with tons of desposable income to last them a lifetime.

sunilkumar: whatever, with all the criticism i still like it. I still wish i could buy this beauty.(along with Vertu phone)

Just purchasing a regular Leica M-P makes for sense then this. The ping pong rubber will collect a lot of dirt and will look really dirty after a couple hours of use.

Jorginho: These guys are just funny! " We maintain that, for many applications, easily-shot, good quality 1080 is just as valuable as poorly shot 4K, so we're not too put off by this development.
Like when we discuss the difference between a 1" sensor and FF for stills "we maintain that easy point and shoot good 1"quality is as valuable as poorly shot FF..."

Hilarious...in this way you can negate every difference and be fine with it...

If you are a videographer worth your salt you would also be equally invested in proper lighting for your projects anyway.

Yikes. Table Tennis rubber? Yikes that material is going to absorb tons of dirt, dead skin cells, and gunk from the user's hand rather quickly.

Mike99999: Looks like an uglified Leica SL. Regardless, it is a very cool product.

It certainly made to take pretty pictures not look pretty
