OrdinarilyInordinate: It looks well made and minimalistically designed. I'm sure the Leica lenses will also be very nice optically. I don't see this design as a typical mirrorless compromise of going smaller on size, however--quite the opposite (not that there aren't other reasons to go mirrorless, like better live view, good EVF, higher fps if needed, etc.) This looks like a camera to be used with a tripod or a monopod, as opposed to A7* and Leica's own Q. Definitely looks like a professional camera or one made for carefully set-up studio or landscape shots for a smaller number of professionals and enthusiasts as opposed to carry-everywhere street and travel and people camera. Of course Leica still has other lines to cover those roles.

Minimalistic as a an elephant. Pal, that thing is huge!

"The aims of mirrorless systems are; keeping the camera simple, light in weight, and small optics with great optical performance as well as focusing speed."

Now Leica; what is the reason of this SIZE ! The medium format sensor ? Nope! Just a full frame. Sorry to say; pointless system to me.

As usual; whenever you buy a windowsphone, you invest for usefulness. The thing you purchase "helps you".
On Android and especially in Apple when you buy a thing, it add more time as a prisoner in consumer dungeons! Your apple app is not there... Your android things has to back to main screen...

Keep enjoying my 1520 Lumia. ;)

Real performer! May not be best mobility oriented (not-thanks-to entire world, who doesn't support Windows app), but who and why would ever need "app" of every single thing, when you all the real deal even in stronger hardware!

Great Microsoft! Keep 'em coming.

The lights around the lens is amazing! This can be comes as an accessory to Olympus tg's! But well, Olympus tg's has much faster lens!

Very sadly, none of these cameras has 1/1.7" or even 1" sensor.... Well, there is Nikon 1 UW ... But there are no money ;)

(PS mermaid mode, centaur mode, faun mode... just too mythological to take it serious for me!)

Ben O Connor: Fear Samsung,

Why on Earth you don't accept the fact and make a m43 mouth camera?
It can be bigger sensor, you can even make your own lens line up... But do it in M43 way. Your biggest competitor is Sony! Panasonic is nothing compare to them.

Just like sony E mouth system. Same ring can have aps-c with today technology and in future maybe bended sensor technology enables even bigger sensors than aps-c inside. Samsung can sell lenses. As sigma does, Schneider-kreuznach even!

M43 mouth seems big enough to accommodate crop size sensor in it. Sure the lenses would be rather beefy, but check the 42.5mm Leica lens!

Olympus is leading company on screens (tv) today, promising in video world as well... But its camera system is so niche!

(PS. I said DEAR SAMSUNG, sorry for miss typing.)

Dear challenge voters; if sun dried fresh tits does not take you points, please visit you doctor. You need testosterone support.

In old days "A Multiple rocket launcher" is something that no one wanted to touch !

Nowadays they would just simply sell it to any buyers on the globe. Don´t you guys know how the isis reached Libya´s arsenal after Gaddafi ? Well then go read some!

Great photography here, As a authentic poster freak I respect you more than just an extreme photographer.

On article ONA launches new leather and nylon Black Collection (39 comments in total)

Dear ONA,

As a microfourthirds user, I have less camera gear and they are more compact compare to DSLR´s.
Last weekend I saw and fell in love with ONA ROMA. Can you please make that model leather straped that I can put my all stuff there ? And please try to keep the price less than 80 €/$/£ as it is now? You have a customer to yourself in Finland!

Thanks.
