I think you have something similar on Facebook, just is color. I must admit I miss that golden hue.

With the EVF included it is double the price of the Fuji X-T1 ($2.2K versus $4.4K)...

The Fuji X-T1 has good ISO performance though and an excellent and bright built-in EVF...

The review is also pretty vague I find about manual focusing.  How easy is it to manually focus M lenses?

About the IQ being better, how can you really tell when only looking at JPEGs?  What counts for me is the file you obtain after using a capable raw converter.

If all you want is a mirrored edge, GF or perfect resize is way too much IMO.  There are plenty of "free" actions out there and I have one, PM if you want a copy sent.

I "hate" the mirrored edge look as it tends to catch the eye of the viewer and looks looks like a Kaleidoscope especially with trees, or rocks with patterns.  I prefer to stretch the edge (with same action mentioned) or go to a solid color.  Epson makes with a bit tricky since I have never owned a Epson (now on 6) that can print without a skew.  This makes a true mirrored edge hard to to stretch as you can't skew a stretcher bar, also makes the solid edge hard. 

Now I tend to use Content aware, and just work till I have something that looks OK, especially on the inside edges of Triptych's. 

I used the mirrored edge for years, but just don't like the end result.

Let me try to make some sense of the pricing:

1) At US$1950, the 23mm f/2 Summicron is a bargain by Leica standards: its closest 35mm format counterpart, the 35mm f/2, is US$3,200, so you save enough on this lens to buy the EVF (US$595) and an elegant leather holster/strap.

2) Once the value of Leica lenses justifies their pricing, the price of body and accessories is little to worry about.

The review of Steve Huff:

Obviously most people know what to expect from Steve Huff...

Make an offer--I'm not locked into these prices, but seemed a fair starting point.

Thank you Ernst and Chris

Ernst: I'll dig through the driver and see if I can find anything appropriate.

Chris: I'm probably going to have to work with the 25,50,75% compensation adjustments - and tell clients to expect a small inaccuracy.

I'm going to check this tomorrow but I'm pretty sure that everything I've printed on Epson Hot Press has come out dead accurate, even at large print sizes. For that paper I use the driver's Hot Press default settings. For the German Etching I use 'Velvet Fine Art'. Out of curiosity I'm wondering if a given set of media settings contains adjustments for handling and tension. So if I use Velvet Fine Art for a paper that is not VFA then maybe the printer won't be feeding it correctly.

Guys, if landscapes are shot at around f11 then what is the use of shooting these wide angles at f 2.8? what type of photography is shot at f2.8? Low light landscapes? or what?

Landscapes are usually shot on a tripod, so there is no reason to choose f/2.8 to get a faster shutter speed even at night.

The 20mm lens has uses in other fields such as journalism, where the fast maximum aperture is very useful, and few people worry about the soft corners. Smiley

I have both, and there is not a lot of overlap in their usage.
I love the Fuji for a carry around all purpose camera, set on auto iso to capture whatever comes my way. Especially with the superb 23 1.4 on my X-E2.
The DP2M never leaves iso 100 or a tripod. For that type of shooting it excels. It blows away the detail rendering of the Fuji, which has always been a bit strange, especially for foliage and fine details like tree branches.
The DP renders these details as sharp as a razor.
But there really is no point to the resolution if all you want to do is downsize for web presentation, this is a camera made for making large prints. For that, it's worth the extra effort of shooting and processing. I see the DP's as an addition to a system, not an alternative.

But without the stand will it fit through a standard door?


Depends on doorway and stuff around it.  My house cannot accept one due to narrow doors built back in 1982.  Barely could accept new refrigerator and they had to take off the hinges too get it through the front door.  Newer homes and businesses are handicap accessible with wider doors.  I might be able to get a ipf6450 in the place - maybe.

Local shop has a 8400 and had to go through a false wall to get it in there (Older building).  Even the old hospital had issues getting it into their freight elevator and it had to be stood upright in it and around some doors as well.  Good thing they left the ink out prior to getting into the elevator too according to the salesgirl.  They were going to load it with ink and set it up for delivery so it would work immediately, but luckily they held off.  She said it took four people to move it around too.

Good machine though, other than being the size of a coffin to move around.
