| p.1 #17 · The New Leica M - Is HERE! |
Most of the "Issues" listed in the post above are just matters of personal preference, I think. I don't normally think that Leica is perfect, but saying that the camera can't do some stuff that it isn't supposed to do is like trying to judge a cake for it's ability to fly, it's just two very different categories.
I think those issues are merely annoyances, if at all. I'm sure you could just buy a kit DSLR and be happy, then. *if that post was sarcasm, please ignore my lack of understanding, I just found it ridiculous*
Sorry to disappoint you, but it was neither a joke nor do I consider the list that I provided as ridiculous. I have been a Leica R user since 1984 (now about 29 years) with a substantial investment in 16 Leica R lenses and presently still with 3 Leica R cameras for an investment of probably well over $30,000 over the years. I am a Pro, and Leica has used my work. The points that I listed are because the camera was to have been an R "solution" and clearly it does not provide sufficient features that nature, landscape, and wildlife photographers such as myself really need (but were supplied by the film R cameras). So, many of us are still orphans without a Leica brand digital platform for the proper usage of our R lenses (including macro and long lenses) to their greatest potential.
