I like it. Even the bird couple seem to have an argument

VonSchweitzer: I wish I could afford it. I don't wish to have one, I just wish I could afford one. That'd mean I was really rich.

No man.. Rich is how much you did NOT give away to Leica

Shabang: Leica, spend a bit more once, or buy a cheaper camera and have to upgrade every year. Leica gets our money! The sample images are other-worldly!

Not true unfortunately. The Q is a gateway drug to Leica M :D

Ventura Star: I would love to own this superb camera. However, I can take reasonably good snaps with Nikon and Canon equipment and couldn't possibly justfy the colossal price tag for it, or probably accessories. I'd also be scared of scratching or damaging the camera in the slightest way and carrying something with this much value around city streets is yet another genuine concern. So there you have it I'm afraid.

You can always get a used original Q. Had one and it was great.

xtm: 910 grams and $4,000? hahahaha they can keep it.
That's as heavy as the D700 and that thing was a brick!
I thought mirrorless is supposed to be lighter?

The Z7II weighs 675 grams, and it felt perfect. Nikon has this habit of making the successor heavier than the model it replaced.

On article DPReview closure: an update (1141 comments in total)

It's April 10 and still functional. It's just an elaborate April Fools joke. I don't think this site is closing.

DPR was bad 10 years ago and it should have shut down then, but now that it had gotten WAY better and more civil it will shut down? So sad to hear that... but thank you all for the many hours of interaction.

Why no LM? Fuji lenses that have LM are smoother and quieter.

King of Song: The absolute worst sample images I have ever seen in my life. This time NOT taken by the DPR staff, but in this case by Cosina themselves. Good luck with your $670 manual focus lens Cosina.

*Almost* ALL manufacturers have mediocre sample photos from a new lens release. Nikon and Canon do the same. Anyways, the Corgi pic kinda shows how capable this lens is, if you zoom in on the fur details, you'll see how crisp it is and lack of CA.

On article Leica M11 initial review (803 comments in total)

Great news for those who want a used M10(R) or (P). Hopefully the M10's become more affordable. It's one of the best most satisfying cameras I've ever owned.

On article Nikon releases non-'SE' Nikkor Z 28mm F2.8 (235 comments in total)
In reply to:

Brev00: Every lens announcement is followed by comments from folks who have other design ideas. Faster, more metal in the construction, prettier, a different focal length. Yada, yada, yada. Obviously, no company can please all of the expert engineers on this website. When I go to Home Depot, I tend to choose from the available lawn mowers and don't offer my great engineering advice to the sales people. If I had a Z camera, I would just see if it has the best features for my needs. If I need metal construction, I will look at other options. Is there an audience for this particular lens? The price and size are certainly going to be positives for many.

LOL, I frequent contractor forums and they DO complain about "missing" features on new releases from Dewalt and Milwaukee. (equivalent to Nikon (yellow) and Canon (red)). They also often bash lower end tools like Ryobi (equivalent to Sigma in photo forums). All humans are the same, just different hobby.

brownie314: $2.5K. Are you serious?

These modern lenses are packed with cutting edge technology and much better performance. I’m ok with them charging for it. I’d be upset if they put out a cheap glass with same mediocre performance. Progress is a good thing.

mujana: What? No video? No 4k, no 8k?? Love it already.

The LESS features they put, the MORE I love it. Less is more - a concept that Sony fanbois will never understand.
