Products such as this one just show the Sony's constant increase in market share.

princecody: Leica buyers are more brainwashed than iPhone X buyers ☺️

Apple's products is a perceived "better Garmin" among other Garmins, it's not a deliberate "Spartan" Garmin among "better Garmins".

Lordemed: The arrogance of Leica and other German manufacturers in overpricing their products amazes me. The more they charge, the more the 1% want to buy.

Fabulous photography has little to do with gear involved. Mainly it has to do with how the photographer feels and communicates with gear and not gear for itself.

Ι 'm not sure if it was done accidentally or not, but more imaginative approach for pinpointing the cooperation of lens and camera, than the pictures of the girl wearing these rasterized colored eye contacts, I haven't seen so far... Kudos to the photographer...

I think that DPR has to create a new tag in lens hub, the "vintage lenses". It can also create a new one named "Humor" where the scroll down menu will have some "nice names" such as start-ups, retro look cams, useless accessories, leather & wood et such.

Τhese lenses are serious professional tools in affordable prices for what they offer to professionals or dedicated enthusiasts. And they reflect Canon's craftsmanship and not Canon's bulk production of indifferent products just to exist.

Seems that the K1 is a needle in the a@@ for a lot of manufacturers because of its innovation, performance, IQ, rigidness even its design for some and above all its price. Seems it spoils their party of marketing oriented various models with minor differences, the difficulty of defining the proper mixture of still/video and the niche hunting as well.
Their pressure in every sector of trade chain (from lens/accessories manufacturers up to retailers, media and s/w designers) seems to be perceived rather aggressively resulting in a clear depiction of this very pressure, as the recent 645 story justifies.

Τechnology as you already have suggested is available and I guess that it can be implemented in a more clever form if needed. U.I is rather more complicated due to users' perception and knowledge worldwide. I also have the impression that if such a MF format ever produced from a blank sheet of paper should look like more a Sony F505-707 series cams so to have a reasonable agile size easy to handle and operate.

Just a conceptual-niche of the niche market- test bed.
In our days it's cheaper to design a test bed product than afford a consumer research which will lead you nowhere. So manufacturers finance the concept which in worse case will bring some money back.

NIK suite to my opinion is one of the best s/w for photography creativity and post processing for connoisseurs.

Those lenses IQ is superb. And I really wonder if the usual cognitive dissonance's champions (fanboys mostly) would tell the difference in an exhibition of photography where all pictures are printed in a typical approximately 25x20" size, no matter if they have been produced by M4/3, APS or FF cameras.
As to professionals, with all my respect for what they are doing and offer and under what circumstances and pressure , I know a lot of enthusiasts that they are at least one class above them in every aspect, so pls pros pay the respect you owe to the people that they don't care to challenge you, just because they make their living doing something else in their life.

I did not say that LCD screens are useless, I am saying that this patent is of no interest. Simple.

Αdobe's tradition in producing misconceptions about its products and policy is well known.

aris14: No matter the Leica contribution in photography which I highly appreciate, their main achievement in nowadays is that they can persuade enough consumers that their hugely overpriced products can deliver noticeable results in any terms compared to those offered by competition at a fraction of the cost.
And judging by the result we have to accept they manage to do it exceptionally well by investing in a unique mixture of sentiment and craftsmanship mainly aiming to an audience worshiping vanity and distinction.

If your life was relying in accuracy of time it would be safer to rely on a Casio than a Rolex, commuter cars in nowadays are a commodity so the "character" involved in them is the same of a fridge, dream cars are toys for boys (and girls), old Ricohs were in some cases more innovative than Leicas in the beginning of digital photography, but I can see your point in terms of fetishism.
It's Leica's approach: we don't sell cameras, we offer you a passion item.
And they know how to do it...

Mark Turney: I used to be an ACE (Adobe Certified Expert) in Photoshop. Now as an enthusiast photographer only, I adamantly oppose the subscription model. Sad really that Adobe is driving away many like me who used to sing their praises.
