Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Image

Image:
"Some reviews complain about the viewfinder and LCD image quality."
_
"On Board Light Meter ------ the light meter here is adjustable and very accurate ---- I depended on it whenever I set the aperture, and was very pleased with the results ---- in addition, if you hate the pic, you can always erase it5."
_
"Numerous reviews that I researched were about unanimous in their opinion that image quality was rather badly compromised by noise at ISO 400."
_
"This is in stark contrast to using a DSLR where shooting a burst of images with a blazing fast autofocus and burst rate yield one good image out of many."
_
"COMPRESSION ---- I took most of my pics in the LOWEST compression of JPEG, and they are beautiful -- most of them are less than one megabyte in size and very nice looking ---- in comparison, the high compression pics do look better, but there isn't much differenceAre there cons?"
_
"Lense ----- the lense is terrific, and Leica glass is awesome ---- I'm having a good time looking at all the pics I took over my iPhoto, and there a clear difference between my Nikon Sony pics versus the Leica ----- however, as mentioned, the lense is NOT changable ------ for me, I like this because I'm not interested in carrying 5 lenses to a bunch of locations ------ but for true photographers, this is a problem - so keep that in mind3."

"All the megapixels in the universe can not and will not make up for the limitations of a mediocre or miniaturized lens (or a poor artist) After all, your system will ultimately always be limited by its weakest component."
_
"Pro's :- Fast extremely high quality lens- Wonderful and intuitive manual-like controls for good flow- Unless you're into action photography the RAW write lock times on a fast SD card (e. g. Sandisk Ultra II) is hardly noticable."
_
"The body style, and external controls compliment this lens design perfectly."
_
"The short range of ISO (compared to today's cameras) is also adequate considering the lens fast aperture, and the fact that it yields sharp images wide open."
_
"The lens is marvelous and the camera feels solid- not like the drop it and trash it feel that permeates so many cameras these days."
_
"It has an amazing lens that can't be purchased apart from the camera body."

Quality

Quality:
"A third-party adapter ring can bump the filter size up to a more standard 72mm or 77mm size, however I've found that non-Leica brand filters (even the expensive ones) seem to degrade the quality of the photographs too much."
_
"Some reviews complain about the viewfinder and LCD image quality."
_
"I had an enormous disappointment with the camera and the quality of the pictures."
_
"Numerous reviews that I researched were about unanimous in their opinion that image quality was rather badly compromised by noise at ISO 400."
_
"Pro's :- Fast extremely high quality lens- Wonderful and intuitive manual-like controls for good flow- Unless you're into action photography the RAW write lock times on a fast SD card (e. g. Sandisk Ultra II) is hardly noticable."
_
"The lens of this camera, its manual controls, its bright aperture, internal zoom, build quality, and ultimately its excellent performance- are the heart of its lure and soul of its operation."
_
"But if it's photography you wish to persue, then realize first and foremost that unless you want to produce really large prints, provided you have a reasonable minimum of 4 megapixels or so, that image quality doesnt come from megapixels but from the photographer and the lens."
_
"I am used to lining up shots using the LCD, so to me, this is not a real issue, save to say that it wouldve been more aesthetically appealing if the rangefinder was of the same quality as the rest of the camera."
_
"The best trained doctor cant perform quality microsurgery with a rusty butter knife, even if he is trying to do so in the world's highest tech operating roomAnd when it comes to glass, Leica Summicron simply has no peer."
