That makes Neil Young's Pono player ($399) seem like a bargain...

PF ... silly how Nikon spells DO ...
Diffractive optical and fluorite elements, electromagnetic diaphragm ... it seams that Nikon is finally catching up with Canon in lens techology after so many years ...
But seriously this new lens looks very handy, and due to DO (PF) it is exceptionally small and light (though low weight is probably due to use of plastic also).
Nikon PF also seams different than Canon DO, they provide similar benefits but Nikon is using one meniscus lens glued to diffractive element while Canon uses two diffractive elements.
I just hope that bokeh will be better than Canon 400mm DO that I dont like very much... in that case this lens would be really great ...
By the way separate tripod collar now makes perfect sense, it is compatible with 70-200mm f/4 so you can use it interchangeably and those two lenses would make really fantastic and light travel combo ...
How can the photographer do the right framework in Macro, through a rangefinder with parallax error?
Again, how to make a correct framework using ultra wide 15mm lens? Is there an optional display that covers the same angle of view?
Also Monochrom creates really good images because of the lack of the bayer filter.
I'd like to meet someone with a brand new Porsche who says "It's nothing special - just a Volkswagen with a big
engine". He could be a Leica owner. Sure, they have a "special" past, fine glass and a body you could drive nails with, but "nothing special" - if you have enough spare change. Using one requires more than a basic knowledge of photography, a mindset to take "photographs instead of pictures" - and not needing a longer focal length than
135mm. It also requires good eyesight to use the rangefinder, good psychomotor skills to focus, and a touch of
arrogance. For an entertaining evening try the Leica user forum at l-camera-forum.com.
There's a thought out there that Leica has become a lifestyle luxury brand above all else... which is fine, they make money now.
