On article Leica Boss: Hands-on with new Leica M10 (135 comments in total)
In reply to:

Steve Sanacore: It's very annoying when people complain or insult a product they can't afford and or have never even used. These are wonderful cameras with superb optics. Most of their lenses are still optically superior to almost all others. Many Sony A7R2 users have Leica M lenses on their cameras because of the unique quality of the images. Price is irrelevant to those who enjoy shooting Leica rangefinders. You can say the same for Hasselblad and Phase One, grossly overpriced for those that don't need it. The world is filled with super high priced items that provide nothing but glamor, like, $20,000+ watches etc. At least in Leica's case, it provides amazing lenses in a tiny form factor that few can compete with. Those that can see the nuances in the images that Leica's deliver appreciate it and are willing to pay for it.

Many people who complaint all the time can't take good photos, the are just professional whiners. that's a known fact because people who do take good photos know photography is not all about hardware.

DarkShift: Nikon bragging their gear is being used for live streaming of one of the most dumpest man in history?

If this is not FAKE news, I'm considering selling my Nikon gear after reading this. Every single piece of them.

Please sell it. You do not deserve to be a photographer.

nicolaiecostel: Looks like a Samsung S6 edge. I really hope Nokia's new phones will not just be copies of established models, made by foxconn.

I bought an A6 2016 and I want a good reason to drop it and buy Nokia again.

These "Nokia" people are reason of why Nokia failed. Their "new" strategy already speaks for that. Rot starts from top.

There are more than enough makers making good quality low cost smartphones so I guess its a suicide mission for HMD Global.

Samsung is still Samsung but Like Kodak and polaroid, Nokia is not Nokia anymore. Only the brand remains.

In reply to:

stevo23: Since Samsung have lately become the market leader in the PED (personal explosive device) market, is this really the right step for them to take? What are they going to do to make sure these cameras don't explode until you want them to? I think this is foremost on everyone's mind.

They need to work harder to gain terrorist market.

In reply to:

ivan1973: the mobile took out a huge chunk of the camera's business. taking photos no longer requires a specialized equipment.

phone cameras can't do many things properly e.g. bounce flash. but layman don't mind.

Rob Bernhard: 6GB of RAM?

more ram doesn't necessary means better and faster. Nevertheless dumb consumers just look at numbers only.

Corkcampbell: The new Xiaomi is the Mi Mix, not this phone. Get a grip, DPreview. It has a bezel-free face, except for the bottom. The phones pictured here are old news. It is obvious that the iPhone 8 will copy the new Xiaomi but will probably remove the bottom bezel.

its better to copy others rather than to spend so much money on development and ended up being copied.

Samsung has always been supportive of "alternatives" for customers. This is an
answer to Samsung.
