The Davinator: Once again, cue the anti Leica trolls who will blindly trash another product they are jealous about but cant afford.

There are optical characteristics that cannot be created with software in a realistic manner. Thus different lens designs for different subject matter.

CaPi: This is fabulous.. partaking in innovation even years after the release oF a product is a wonderful Aspekt.
If only other camera makers - or smartphone vendors for that matter - would follow suit.

They havent

nerd2: Still tons of people will think GFX50s will make 'better' picture because it is 'medium format' LOL

Agreed Richard.

Mrrowe8: I am just here to watch the Fuji Fanboys heads explode like a scene from the movie "Scanners "

I don't think any heads are exploding....no camera from Nikon, Sony or Canon offers the dynamic range AND resolution of the Fuji. Not sure why being the best would make anyones head explode.

Currently, there is no camera from Sony, Canon or Nikon that offers the resolution AND dynamic range of the Fuji. That is the Fuji advantage for now.

Saurat: Perfect for hipsters and dilettantes everywhere.

Whenever I see the hipster comment, a few things come up....they dont know what a hipster is....they have no clue about the actual demographic of the users.....they are simply being condescending to those interested in the camera. One fellow who graces these forums, regularly has his comments deleted by mods & constantly talks about hipsters and posers, etc, etc. Gets tiring.

There were no rude, personal things said. You were being ridiculous claiming Minolta had a proprietary JPG....which is not possible. When myself and others questioned you on it, you had a hissy fit and stormed off. Nice try at playing the victim though....almost as good as villi

Iridient and Raw Therapee pull far more detail than LR...and noise has been a non issue for me so far...and DR is handled well in Iridient

Because he refuses to use anything but Lightroom. Use other software for raw conversion and low and behold, sharp results. It's kind of like complaining your color film keeps turning out b&w....because you refuse to use any other developer than D76.

Ah, the good old Hipster comment....for those too ignorant to understand that some people prefer different user interfaces and ergonomics. Maybe look at the demographic of the users....hardly fits with your ignorant "hipster" comment.

Stollen1234: i Love Death valley area..the driver should get some Jail time ...

It would punish the person responsible...give them a record to follow them for the rest of their lives, provide a loss of freedom, and introduce them to some wonderful people on the inside to show them just how clever they are.

villagranvicent: Too much DPR love for this camera. I wonder if this has anything to do with the fact that Amazon has it already on stock while the Hasselblad X1D has to be bought somewhere else.

Very true Ran!

kadardr: From a practical point of view there is no real difference between the Fujifilm and the Canon camera. Even at ISO 3200 the difference is minuscule. In my view the flexibility of the Canon system makes up for the most of the differences. Some straightforward direct comparison is needed. (I actually shoot Nikon)

True Marcio. What I find entertaining though are how some defended 35mm FF to the death as a huge increase in quality....that often could not even be seen in huge prints.....to aps-c. Now that they are in the same position....they are now trying to defend it as a minor difference hardly worthy of consideration. Larger formats have always been better.....what matters is the need of the user.

True Henrik, I encountered that when comparing 645, 6x6 and 6x7 film scans...same idea.

The Silver Nemesis: Yes - you (almost) convinced me. Upgrade time is around the corner.

The slimmer body might make it more reminiscent of the old film M's. Regardless, results from the M10 look better all the time.

Sir Nick of High Point: Probably my favorite DPR post. I felt like I was reading a more organized version of my own thoughts regarding rangefinder photography. Getting away from the mentality that only perfectly sharp images are acceptable is difficult, but rewarding. So many great candid shots are missed due to time spent fine tuning the focusing.

Agreed Sir Nick. Much too much made of miniscule differences in output color, resolution, etc, etc. The shooting experience is often what can assist in driving the results...not for example, comparing slight color differences between this and ancient models from a decade back.

In reply to:

Mfritter: The pictures are just lovely. The fact that you took some of them with older, relatively inexpensive lenses - Rokkor 40, Nikon 50cm - is a plus. I love rangefinder shooting - very disintermediated.

Hope you get to keep the thing.

How quiet is the shutter?

Great series. Looking forward to seeing more.
