What I want from Photokina
Back from vacation and with hundreds of images to plough through, my thoughts turn to Photokina. This is a fantasy list, not real expectations, but everything below is possible now...
And I want my own dressing room with a star on the door.
AND I want a Pony!
(you can't have it all my friend) unless money is no object. But even then are the rich really happier about the photos they take? I remember seeing a big writeup about Brad Pitt's cameras. Still waiting to see his work.
Can you say Sony A99 to start, then maybe in 2013 a 36mp A99x ??
I have a feeling that the Leica M10 will still have the OVF with the option to put on a EVF on top like the Leica X2. This to me would suck.
Theonl way I would buy back into leica, is a M10 with a built in EVF, I don't really care about peaking as long as you can zoom in for accurate focus.
Tim, yeah I for one, also wish the NEX-7 could use WA Leica glass effectively. Today the Sony RX-1 was officially released. A pre-release photo I saw showed an EVF, but now I see it doesn't have one. A deal killer for me. But I'm sure others will be happy to use the add-on, but it then becomes less compact. I'll wait for a FF NEX version because I prefer the option to change lenses.
The RX-1 does look interesting but I've never made good mileage with fixed lengths unless they zoom a bit. It seems like having a Ferrari and only driving it on Sundays! Interesting what you say about the NEX7 with Leica glass: I find that 50mm is the shortest focal length that really works, and that is a 75 FOV on the Nex - too long for me. I'd like to use my 35 lux, 28 Cron and 18mm....
