Unless they get too big for themselves, this is where you can talk about the "other" brands of DSLR's: Konica Minolta / Sony, Pentax / Samsung, Olympus, Horseman, etc.

Yeah, I think affording the Leica is only 40% of the job.

It looks a truly splendid piece of kit.

Two or three lights, any lens on a light-tight box are sufficient for the realisation of the most convincing image. Man Ray 1935.

It's one heck of a lens, though not so keen on that review...can't really stand the sound of the reviewer. It is a rather large lens when mounted onto an M body. Looks like the size of an SLR 50 1.4 bolted onto an M body...rather large when compared to the Summilux or Summicron.

What would have been much impressive to see is taking photos in a dimmer environment. Hong Kong isn't the darkest city in the world at night, especially with the amount of lamps around. Yes, I've tested this myself with a Summicron 50mm ;)
