LEICA SL.

WHAT A MACHINE! it feels like it carved purposely for my hands (I am 6" 183cm , can hold size 7 basket ball in my hand!).

AMAZING ERGONOMICS AND BEST EVF TO DATE! The first evf that I did not dissapointed, even amazed.

Thanks to Kokkolan Kuvatiimi (Kokkola/Finland) for this handheld experience! Such a great surprise for an ordinary Saturday!

Ben O Connor: Every positive comments about leica SL are "oh looks great, lovely evf, oh my! That brand on top.." nothing but image quality!

There are thre cameras considered from leica X1 (the first model only!) Leica Q and new Leica M (the entry model without video & gimmicks).

The king of this or any other comparison is l PENTAX 645Z unfortunate thing is, I am nit a pro photographer :(

Please forgive me guys! Seconds ago I got thos camera in my hands in Kokkola/Finland (Kuvatiimi Kokkola)
OH-MY-GOD!!!!!!

Amazing ergonomics and its not any bigger than a Nikon 5300! Which was surprised me so much.

I take every negative comments back about it! Amazing camera. Sucking part of it is; I am a looser, who can't afford such stuff.. :(

Amazing story! Great images! When I was working somewhere close to Bulgarian border of Turkey in that trout farm, where has no GSM connection (2008-150km far from ISTANBUL!!!) in the middle of the forest... A bumble bee hit me from neck!!!!

After a 15 mums of car driving I can threw myself to a clinic, they saved my life at age 24!!!! Those guys are way way beyond of my experiences! I take my hat off for you.

Respect!

Ben O Connor: You can buy a Sony a7II combo with even less money, but after a year or two it is "old"! But this one is become "antique". It has nothing to lose to coming years! It had never have a full or half hd... Or any K with a number with it...

Maybe you haven't wait long enough :D

Well Leica, welcome to 2005 ! (when cameras did not able to record video!) :)
Apart from joke; no image stabilization, no auto focusing, but finally little bit mercy on the price tag
... Why not! Even I can buy, but will it blend my wallet ? That's the question!

Hmmm.... Yeah, but... Anyway. But why not! Well actually... I don't know.

Ben O Connor: You folks also should recommend "traveling options" too. For example an Istanbul or Amsterdam trip would be very nice, different, even exotic for anyone's photography!

Yes to new & needed gear, more photography, more travelling!

By the way; It is a warning you should consider. But don´t be fool;

- Turkish Republic had no war since its established in 1923. At the dame period, there were always a conflict off its borders ( WWII 39-45, Collpase of Iron Curtain 89, Collapse of USSR 90, 1st 2nd Gulf War 90-03, Collpae of Syria 09-today)
-It has one of the biggest army on the planet which is a NATO grade army since 1952.
-Turkish Armed Forces participated (or lead in some cases) Korean, Cyprus, Somali, 1st Gulf, Bosnian, Kosovon, Afghanistan operations.
- Today, Almost exactly similar source of dangers that aiming Turkey as it aims the rest of the modern world; Terrorism. and it can happen ANYWhERE, ANYTIME, ANYHOW around the globe. It happened in Norway (A.Breivik Oslo 2011) it happened in France (Charlie Hebdo , Paris 2015) , Happened Turkey (Ankara 2015)...

Actually I meant both. DPR can recommend both "travel" & "education". Choice is yours! Maybe its better to start with a "Travel guide for photographers from photographer's sight."

Ben O Connor: Great artixle. But also must consider gap between size/logic.

Forexample; why the m4/3 camera be about the size of a leica m camera ? Whilenit has hald the size sensor in it ?

So its even worse than I thought!

As a M4/3 system user, I love my gear light. GM1 is a great camera. However I want to improove my phtography hence the gear. Biut whatever I try is illogical by size! Even GM5 is illogical because you cant bend its screen to achieve higher or lower angles of shooting and its size grows rapidly when you dicede to take your friends photo in a dark place (an outside wedding forecample!). and what is their excuse; EVF. Sorry, I dont buy it.

Also GX7; a camera, which packs smilar features than GM1 but much bigger... why?

Do not think is like a human body "small piece called eye in the body, connected to head which is bigger than eye to generate the sight! " cameras does not need to be bigger than their sensor size! Maybe can be %30 bigger to pack a screen behind them.. or a EVF. Thats it.

Yes ! Gx8. is about the same as a leica size M-E ! Yetbit packs a half the size of the sensor.

Or E-M1 is even bigger than EOS 100D (rebel SL1) which has a bigger sensor!

The amazing thinh they come up with m4/3 cameras are panasonic GM series period! Anything bigger than an pen pm series or gf series is "illogical to own!" by size! Image stabilisation can be an excuse for short period, but they should figure out the solution as quiick as possiible.

Dear Polaroid, please make this camera Windows Phone comparable that I can buy at least one! TOMORROW!

My greatest camera (system) goal ever! One day; i will have the latest version of Pentax 645, put it in the middle of somewhere, and built a studio around it. It will be the central element. The thing, that people come and sit front of it.

And suddenly an idiot would ask "what is pentax? is not the Canon the best pro cam ?!" then it will be my first crime case! :)

I love it.

I always thought that "Pentax should use M43 mouth with a crop size sensor in it!"
But now they come with a full frame dslr... Such weird move in year 2015!

But its Pentax! I believe its ovf is phenomenon, that shows things better that your eyes do.
