"An optional ($545) 'Visoflex' electronic viewfinder can be attached to the M10 for live view shooting. This isn't as silly as it sounds - shooting in live view ensures accurate framing, and accurate critical focus..."

Accurate critical focus? Then what the rangefinder is for? People are paying extra thousands just for the rangefinder...

BobYIL: "Sharpest standard lens in the world" limited for use on the 24MP sensor of Leica.

@ S Yu: Leica lenses are designed for Leica sensors having oblique-view microlenses with thin filters on. Specifically the 50mm and shorter ones do not perform the same on Sony sensors as they do on the M9 or M240.

I would call them a masterwork; not only from the PoV of aesthetics, but very few photographers can master such precision to capture the right moment in hundreths of a second by the freezing effect of strobes vs delaying effect of shutter lag.

For those who pass on this, Leica will re-launch the Hektor 28mm f/6.3...

The next Leica M-P "slip" by Wolf Sucks to come with a free bag of best quality chalk powder will be priced at $15.995 (only 69 units, no lens or flash.)

Sony, hear me:
Now we have a mirrorless MF however with exclusive leaf-shutter lenses but also (with adapter) older lenses again with leaf shutters. And we have a bunch of MF-DSLRs with mirror.... I think it's time to introduce a mirrorless MF with focal plane shutter so that a great deal of us could use their existing MF lenses- almost any MF lenses- like you have done with the A7-series...

Another X-Pan possibility: Two 42MP FF Sony sensors side-by-side, output integrated via SW, with fixed or interchangeable lenses covering at least 76mm illumination circle (not much problem for Hasselblad.) 84MP panaromic camera is quite attractive.

Decades long "Magnum quality" has been associated with highest achievement, accomplishment, mastery, admiration, compliment.... The photos here hardly evokes anything positive.

Jonas, you have brought excitement with your photos. Thanks..

Dear dpr,

Most of us can not afford a D5 or 1DXII but still need a camera with excellent AF capabilities and "reasonable" cost. How about taking one of these two as reference and running a comparative test involving the D500, 7DII and A6300 so that we could have a clear and objective idea where each could stand concerning AF and responsiveness? I am sure this will receive more interest than the top-two pro cameras.

"However, the Canon still can't match the Nikon's uncanny ability to track objects reliably and accurately as they progress across the frame while also coming toward or moving away from the camera." (Sums it up nicely and neatly..)

Did something like this ever happened to Nikon or Canon?

@ odpisan: With Slovenian mind better not try to judge what happens in the states.. Only in LA probably 10 times more D800E was sold than what it did in entire Slovenia..

Many times... I have waited six months for the 800E..

Stunning reaction to pixel shift; first samples resolution reminded me of 8x10" color diapositives (!); DR is beyond expectations. A new trend in digital photography is starting; soon we may see some similar models from Nikon, Canon (?) and Sony too..
