Similar statement will come from some of the others sooner or later, including Sony....

Finally a clever use of 4K feature to make it useful...

Certainly your 2nd sample shows some bizarre effect that should be questioned.

ps. I actually never cared about sigmas and tamrans

I don't see much if any CA. I think you may be confusing the light diffraction at the subject itself with CA. With keen eye you would actually see this effect on the subject with your eye being the only optics involved. However, I don't think portrait is the best application of a WA lens though...

PhotogJosh: Leica, when you have money but no common sense.

On a sunny day and f8 a Kodak brownie will come close too but that doesn't say much about your evaluations. I don't know about you but I don't buy fast lenses to shoot at f4. Shoot with leica's fast lenses wide open and see what you get, and do the same with canon and see what crap it produces.

I have been a long time canon/nikon users. If it wasn't because of them photography still would be craft for the elite. They do have good lenses here and there, but that is more of exception than rule.

Get over it. Leica has never been a cheap or earthly priced system, it has a name a lens quality that is second to none. If it is not for you just move on and pontificate on something else....

JackM: TLDR. Why would anyone buy this over a Sony a7 series other than for the jewelry factor?

-Sony is a terrible company when it comes to returning the customer loyalty. They drop a line in an eye blink, tough luck if you are left in the cold
-The consumer product of sony have consumer grade designs. Their very high end professional stuff are ok, but just.
-Sony is not a photography company, photos are a filler for them

QuarryCat: poor Germany - what an ugly piece of camera!

Leica should have make a square sensor with a new JPEG - missed historical chance!

Technique is not that bad - but I can just hope Panasonic will bring the too in a well shaped body.

I don't know of any "pro" camera that is smaller than this. Unless you consider those transistor-radios that sony makes "pro" cameras, and you charge $500 for a package of a million wedding photos...

It is actually a nice industrial clean design, just because you are conditioned to see the populous cameras doesn't make this one bad

Peiasdf: So there is the Leica M39 mount, the M-mount, the S-mount, the T/TL-mount and now the SL-mount.

Beating out SONY, Leica is having more mounts than cameras.

m39 was a very long time ago, before M mount

And you missed the R series

Link | Posted on Oct 20, 2015 at 19:53 UTC

It resembles leica R3 not SL

bernardf12: The only reason I don't like this camera is because it doesn't have a tilting screen. The flip out screens require too many actions to get to the tilting position. And you have to go through these actions repeatedly through your day shooting. Others may like this, but it's not for me because I use the tilted screen quite often.

I didn't like the new idea either at first, but the benefit of full motion out weighs that minor gripe, I use the odd angles more than what I thought

kape06111: I have this camera since one week and can only say:"I love it". The ergonomics is awsome, de viewfinder is big, clear and no lag, everything work flawless and really smooth and the sensor, i keep reading there is not that much improvement in comparison with the previous one, but under my expereince there is much more infromation in the files coming from Gx8 than the files coming from the E-M5II (my previous cam).

In general very happy, the only con i see until now is the function button located between the lens and the grip, it can be activated accidentally and depending on the funtion it has, it may be annoying.

Funny, I have hard time finding that button to push. It is so flushed.

It is an awesome camera. I ditched Leica M8 for gx7, and now gx8 is a really joy to shoot with. I'm back to my street shooting and landscape...

Any serious photograhers out there, add 15, 25/1.4 and, oh the nocticron, and you'll be in camera haven. I know, it is an expensive proposition. But try this combo with leica. My jaw dropped when I compared the nocticron pics shot at f1.2 and shot with 90mm apo-summicron shot at f2(borrowed one). don't know how to post sample comparisons here...

Larryrob03782: found it. go to function button mode in setting. click set on live mode. a menu of function button locations will appear. pick the function button you want to control focus magnification. there are both visible and hidden 'function' buttons all over this camera...who knew? once set, it takes a fraction of a second to provide the magnification for focusing. probably not as nice as just turning the focus ring but not bad, IMO.

this is why everyone loves arriflex....they would never make this so complicated
but the camera would probably cost 3X the price. I just ordered 2 Arri screws, screws!, at $75 ea

Yes, I found this option, it's better than any other setup in other brands. But the GX7 has the most clever way of doing it. I hope they change this in an upcoming firmware. Or, include the AF ON button to the possible options...

phhht...

I'll wait for 800000 iso. It'll be better

Anyone had run into this...

On GX1 and gx7 when you use manual focus lens like leicas if you press the shutter button you get a magnifire to help with focusing. It looks GX8 has omitted this very useful feature...

Yes, they are very expensive.

I own 6 tripods from different manuf. and half of them are light weights, but gitzo is the only one I take out since I bought it. I used to think gitzo was insanely expensive, have you seen how much FLM are? and they are not nearly as good as gitzo

There is a reason you don't find many used gitzos...

ThatCamFan: 6.3 ? Leica should not put they're name to this.

Leica put its name to a f6.3 a long time ago, probably before you were born
