  • Keep in mind that there are plenty of people who have the money to buy a Leica M10, and still have plenty of money to do all that other stuff, too. That's the market that the Leica M10 caters to....

  • People have to remember that even back in the film days when there were other much cheaper alternative rangefinders-- even alternative rangefinders that had Leica M mounts that could use Leica M...

  • @MikeF4Black - "That's all fine and dandy. The point however is that so many Leica aficionados keep insisting image quality is - some magical way - superior to all other cameras."

    People say a lot...

  • @SQLGuy - "He's talking about in a mirrorless camera, that can use rangefinder lenses. Can't put those on a Canon FF body."

    But his argument is still flawed because even back in the film days you...

  • Uh...when was it ever the case that "Leica had the only FF sensor..."?

    "but just for image quality and easy of use, for a fraction of cost,
    the Sony A7 line is much better, and it's where...

  • Leica is still as great as it has ever been. It's always been about the body and the lenses, not the electronics or gizmos or features. That's how it was back in the film days, too. There were...

  • @lokiminion- "Yeah you're right, I'm definitely out of touch with people who are willing to spend an absurd amount of money on a mediocre product especially when you can spend the same absurd...

  • @lokiminion - You clearly have a chip on your shoulder! And your attempt at explaining what "rich people want" is clearly off base, because Leica has continued to do quite well with the Leica M for...

  • @PliciPlici - there are plenty of extraordinarily wealthy people in the world for whom the price of a Leica M is a trivial matter. And I find it a bit absurd for you to say that a 5DIV, 80D, and...

  • Guys, if you can't afford it and don't like it, just buy cheaper stuff that suits you better. I don't get annoyed at people who drive a Range Rover when a Toyota 4Runner can offer similar...

  • The Fuji is not a camera designed for "most photographers." "Most photographers" don't need anything larger than FF, or even APS-C. MF has never been a format for "most photographers."

  • @lokiminion - "The only problem is that the real world performance is no better than cameras that cost less than half as much announced 2 or 3 years ago."

    Well, the same can be said of a $5,000...

  • @PliciPlici - no one is saying that the specs "don't matter". I'm just saying that there are plenty of people in the world who can afford such a product. But specs and other qualities do matter...

  • Hey guys, there ain't nothing wrong with JPEGs, especially if the camera gives you what you want. It's like in the film days when some of us chose to shoot slide film rather than negative film. ...

  • People who are complaining about the price of this camera really out to get a life. Buying a Leica is like buying most luxury items: it's not really about the dollars-and-cents practical value or...

  • People pay $10,000 for a watch. I have a friend who has a collection of handbags, each one being about $5,000 or more. Hate to break it to you, but there are plenty of people in the world who...

  • Uh, then I guess there are a LOT of cameras that fall into that "deal breaker" category. For example, Sony doesn't offer a single camera that has IBIS for $1K. Neither does Canon or Nikon.

  • Replied in 80D vs. M5
    In most cases, the algorithm identifies the location of both and is able to determine which is the closer eye. That's the one it focuses on. And that's the one you want in focus: the closer one. ...
  • @Stanchung- "I need a lot of buttons on my camera to access stuff quickly and smaller digital is not going to be very good at doing that."

    Geez, you're making things sound a lot more complicated...

  • Replied in 80D vs. M5
    Well, first of all, just because a particular feature isn't useful or usable "in all possible circumstances" does not negate its usefulness. For example, mirror lock up on a DSLR is not usable or ...
