Anyone going to pick up the latest and greatest?
Nope, I got over my G.A.S. attack pretty fast a while ago. That said I'm sure it's lovely to behold.
Not in a million years...
I have to admit that I have quickly replaced my G.A.S. attack over the Fuji X-T. So I am not without the sin of lust!
So you would do it in a million + 1 year then!
Does your husband know about this?
He does, Armando.
If someone gave me a Leica XVario, I'm sure I would enjoy it and keep it. But there's no way I would ever buy that camera with that specification at that price - or any price from $1000 up.
They sure are great looking. Exceptional construction quality. But that Leica premium price is out of my reach for now.
It depends on the price. Maybe at USD 800 incl. EFV I`d give it a try. However, when comparing the XT-1 & 18-55mm or A7 plus 28-70mm kit lens prices, I have my doubts I`d pull my credit card even at these price levels.
Its a question of whether you buy cameras on specs or results
The X-vario results can't be argued with. Really spectacular across colours, pop (whatever that is) and sharpness then anything I have seen from a Fuji zoom, for example. And quite unusual to have that across 28-70mm and at all apertures (f3.5 being 1/2 stop off f2.8 ...)
The silver does look good and the thing is made very well.
Whether its worth the price is between you and your bank manager
At least the second hand prices are holding up well, in Leica style ...
Yes, I've still got my eye on this camera...and am also interested in what they're going to bring out in April.
I can confidently say that this camera doesn't stir up any GAS. Which is a good thing for the wallet! Make a version with 28-70/2.8-3.5, and that would be something much more interesting. Or even a constant f4.
Vow, first time I have seen a anti GAS post from you
Oh c'mon, that's not true! I've posted at least half a dozen anti-GAS messages! I've had to eat my words on half of those ... but this is definitely not the only anti-GAS post!
I don't know Armando. Maybethe diplomatic middle-ground is to call your anti-GAS episodes a 'rare event'? I don't know about half a dozen over the past four years or so we've shared on here mate….
Definitely a rare event.
