Geodesiq: Typical Leica - overpriced, underfeatured.

Typical Leica cultist, everything with a red dot is god's gift from heaven and every criticism is FAKE NEWS! Leica is an overpriced, under-featured trophy camera for insecure photographers more interested in their image than the image.

Lobbamobba: Oh wow, lots of non photographers who never even seen a Leica is upset... shocker..

Oh wow, lots of Leica fetishists drooling over the honor of way overpaying for an unsharp lens because it says "Leica" on it.

The price is absurd. You can get similar IQ with the Lumix GX8 which is going for $650. on ebay. You get better IQ with the Sony a6500 @$1400., you get much better IQ with the Sony a7II @$1750.

Wonderful video, great photos! As for the camera the dial is a waste of valuable real estate. At least it should have been a shutter dial. Tinkering around with "art filters" is strictly amateur hour and should be relegated to the deepest recesses of the menu not the most prominent dial on the camera.

Geodesiq: No integrated grip??? Not even a little bump like most of the other Pens and virtually every other camera??? How stupid. Sacrificing function for fashion.

No, let's be shallow fashion queens and gush about invisible screws and retro looks and the faux leather and hipster creds because that's so much more important than actual functionality. Are you lost? You must be looking for the Leica forum.

On article A lot to Leica? Hands-on with the Leica SL (Typ 601) (1489 comments in total)

It's a bloated, overpriced, underfeatured trophy camera for insecure photographers more interested in their image than the image. You can almost justify the camera price but $5k for a 24-90 zoom??? Does anyone in their right mind think they'll see any difference between this and a typical high end zoom from the competition for 1/3 - 1/4 the price??? The Sony a7rII beats this in every way.

Wonderful! Being able to preserve a tiny slice of space/time virtually forever is the true magic of photography.

On article Will consumer DSLRs be 'dead in 5 years?' (141 comments in total)

The problem with DSLRs is the R. It's a relic from the stone age and newer EVFs will certainly make them obsolete sooner rather than later. Live View is a huge benefit of MILCs that DSLRs just don't do well.

Well, give 'em credit for being different but no EVF, no moveable LCD; no thanks.

Yes, it is possible to separate politics from photography. I like Leni Riefenstahl's photography for example. Does that mean I endorse Hitler?

Aside from politics this is a great example of the power of digital photography. This would have been much more difficult with film. Where can I find out exactly how this is done?

On article Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 Review (356 comments in total)

So now Panny has 3 lines of lenses??? One with OIS, one without and a miniaturized one for the GM1? Seems kind of schizophrenic. They can't seem to decide which way to go.

Link | Posted on Jan 6, 2014 at 23:30 UTC as 40th comment | 1 reply

It's unbelievable that at this late date Panny has not even acknowledged there's a problem! Has anyone sent in a problem lens under warranty?

On article Walker Evans' iconic 'American Photographs' turns 75 (39 comments in total)
In reply to:

reginalddwight: Evans' work for the Resettlement Administration in the 1930s represent the pinnacle of his career as a documentary photographer.

There are several historical photographs that best represent the Great Depression.

In addition to arguably the most iconic of the era, "Migrant Mother" by Dorothea Lange, the portrait of Allie Mae Burroughs by Evans superbly captures the raw anguish and uncertainty of the times.

.

And the irony is today's documentary photography will be dust in the wind in 75 years while FSA negatives will likely still be around. We have sacrificed permanence for digital convenience.

On article Panasonic GX7 First Impressions Review (1197 comments in total)

IF ONLY they'd used the same fullly articulating LCD from the G series this would be a no brainer. Why regress to a mediocre, crippled, semi-articulating screen when they've demonstrated the best touch LCD in the business??? They also left off the touch-to-shoot feature which is fantastic for street shooting. From what I can tell my "lowly" G3 is more capable at 1/3 the cost.
