arndsan: Is it just me, or are this lenses very ugly - so much plastic around a pice of glass?
Looks cheap and clunky in comparison with the well shaped camera.

Naja - just the he picture. there is just not detail or anything - just very blunt.

arndsan: no external controls ?
I thought that would be trent.
Aperture and shutter speed set on the screen?
I guess there is a other way, or it will fail like the Leica T.

I think it's a fine camera - and my guess is that you can change aperture and speed with the 2 wheels when in the A or S.
In the movies, I have seen so far - it been featured that this will (can) be done via touch screen. Scary!!!
Are you already a diehard X1D fan?

yes - i understand that the T is a frustrating camera and the price is falling to the ground. Thanks

InnAtElmwood: Yahoo's changes to Flickr over the years has angered many loyal users. Their attempts to make it the Facebook of Fotos never worked. They have tried to bring it back to the place users desire, but they still have a way to go. With the layoffs and neglect they have put on Flickr, Yahoo has not helped themselves keep this product relevant to users or investors. That said, I hope it survives since I spend a lot of time there and no other site (500pix, Picassa, Tumblr) comes close to its relevance to photographers.

that's very true

Steve Swayne: I have 30,000 photos on Flickr and have accumulated 6 million views. I use Flickr daily but have never been happy with Yahoo ownership. I hope whoever gets it LISTENS TO CUSTOMER SUGGESTIONS about future changes or improvements.

very nice camera - I just don't have a idea about Pentax glass.
If the new sigma art lens would work on it - hell yes!

shame - love Picasa - and i want my pictures on my computer.

I guess that's a good option for a action cam.
Still think that 28mm would be better for diving.
The flash position is odd. should be a ring LED if the want to make a statement.

Nice one - I'm grateful that fuji-film as only company stay with the viewfinder and develop it. It's the most important part of the picture taking experience - isn't it !?
Very purposeful camera tool look.
For my taste the camera could lose some bulk considering it's an APSC sensor.

no viewfinder? - what is the point?

I'm sick of spec. overkill and just want to take pictures.

Hi Battersa

Yes- that's it. I don't know all the stuff on my D800 and on my x100s - and always wonder if I have everything set up to get the best result. I don't feel this need to be. The price of the leica is a other story.

In reply to:

arndsan: I went to the shop and had a hands on myself.
My thoughts after this...
After years of blaming Leica for departing from the photographer needs - I would say this is a great camera. The price is something to swallow and i guess many people who really want to have it can't get it (including me) . Anyway - after so many hype about some new cameras, this seems to be worth to buy and try to forget the price : )
but...The EVF still was not very convincing and I wonder why there is no improvement since everyone is calling this the future.
....I can imagine that this could be a camera to get and stop visiting dpreview for a couple of years.

Rishi Sanyal - it is : )

I'm just so tire d of it. other manufactures have quite a long history as well and the employees at leica working for salaries in a international competitions.
It's about investors and marketing decisions that this price is that high. I would like to have a Leica too, but it something Chinese tourist buy and enjoy.
You can everywhere see the new followers of OSKAR BARNACK and there fantastic work!
