They made a "new" rangefinder looking cam which has a flash, evf, hot shue, multi angle, good grip, not huge body one!
Take it as your example MicroFourThirds producers!!!!!
Beautiful design. I will only miss the screw type shutter button, but just for few minutes, not longer. And there are various vintage and new voighlander, zeiss, leica ovf's out there. I would skip the Fujifilm ovf. Especially for the silver body.
Great new stuff. Loved the tilting touch screen. And it is totally open for vintage ovf's or metal voighlander 28mm precise ovfs.
Sad part is F2.8! It should be F2.0 at least. And why not new sensor? Do they afraid selling more?
jonmcphoto: let's see now, 49 thousand dollars. that would be 10 Sony A7R2s and every lens Zeiss makes for that system. Then enough left to take a vacation and come back with some pretty nice photos. Yep. i think that's what i will do.
It´s not a camera "to spend money", it´s The Camera, makes you a pro photographer and by it you can "earn money" !
Man! It is a 0,1 billion pixels & cost about 0,05 millions of US $ !!!!!!! Makes it very reasonable product (pixel per dollars ) to invest.
There is one name in chopper business: DJI.
Keep your action cameras and equip people with it, who are about to jump off from a chopper!
This could be the last year of dslr's considered as "gear of the years".
Technology evolved so much that even I hate to loose OVF, the mirrorless is "The Thing" both in photography and videography.
ImageQuality seemed great on the huge screen, I have no doubt that 24mpx full frame sensor generates great resolution.
There are 4 in Finland now, and I got one in my hands minutes ago!!! Awesome :)
WHAT A MACHINE! it feels like it carved purposely for my hands (I am 6" 183cm , can hold size 7 basket ball in my hand!).
AMAZING ERGONOMICS AND BEST EVF TO DATE! The first evf that I did not dissapointed, even amazed.
Thanks to Kokkolan Kuvatiimi (Kokkola/Finland) for this handheld experience! Such a great surprise for an ordinary Saturday

Ben O Connor: Every positive comments about leica SL are "oh looks great, lovely evf, oh my! That brand on top.." nothing but image quality!
There are thre cameras considered from leica X1 (the first model only!) Leica Q and new Leica M (the entry model without video & gimmicks).
The king of this or any other comparison is l PENTAX 645Z unfortunate thing is, I am nit a pro photographer :(
Please forgive me guys! Seconds ago I got thos camera in my hands in Kokkola/Finland (Kuvatiimi Kokkola) OH-MY-GOD!!!!!!
Amazing ergonomics and its not any bigger than a Nikon 5300! Which was surprised me so much.
I take every negative comments back about it! Amazing camera. Sucking part of it is; I am a looser, who can't afford such stuff.. :(

Amazing story! Great images! When I was working somewhere close to Bulgarian border of Turkey in that trout farm, where has no GSM connection (2008-150km far from ISTANBUL!!!) in the middle of the forest... A bumble bee hit me from neck!!!!
After a 15 mums of car driving I can threw myself to a clinic, they saved my life at age 24!!!! Those guys are way way beyond of my experiences! I take my hat off for you.
Ben O Connor: You can buy a Sony a7II combo with even less money, but after a year or two it is "old"! But this one is become "antique". It has nothing to lose to coming years! It had never have a full or half hd... Or any K with a number with it...
Maybe you haven't wait long enough :D

Well Leica, welcome to 2005 ! (when cameras did not able to record video!) :) Apart from joke; no image stabilization, no auto focusing, but finally little bit mercy on the price tag... Why not! Even I can buy, but will it blend my wallet ? That's the question!
Hmmm.... Yeah, but... Anyway. But why not! Well actually... I don't know.
AMAZING CAPTURE! Another wonder of photography. Its not just art, not always a fantasy... The real itself! It's what happens around you always.
And now that moment is immortal!
Ben O Connor: You folks also should recommend "traveling options" too. For example an Istanbul or Amsterdam trip would be very nice, different, even exotic for anyone's photography!
Yes to new & needed gear, more photography, more travelling!
By not visiting Istanbul, you never taste the amazing Turkish culinary and hospitality. Most importandly; You´d be missed these shots below! :)
By the way; It is a warning you should consider. But don´t be fool;
- Turkish Republic had no war since its established in 1923. At the dame period, there were always a conflict off its borders ( WWII 39-45, Collpase of Iron Curtain 89, Collapse of USSR 90, 1st 2nd Gulf War 90-03, Collpae of Syria 09-today) -It has one of the biggest army on the planet which is a NATO grade army since 1952.-Turkish Armed Forces participated (or lead in some cases) Korean, Cyprus, Somali, 1st Gulf, Bosnian, Kosovon, Afghanistan operations. - Today, Almost exactly similar source of dangers that aiming Turkey as it aims the rest of the modern world; Terrorism. and it can happen ANYWhERE, ANYTIME, ANYHOW around the globe. It happened in Norway (A.Breivik Oslo 2011) it happened in France (Charlie Hebdo , Paris 2015) , Happened Turkey (Ankara 2015)...
