Sorry, actually tuned into this thread to see what people thought about the Leica T. Bought one yesterday and am having a lot of fun with it. Wanted to get other opinions, but it appears that not many here have actually used or own one so there isn't too much to go on about.
Sorry my 911 comment ruffled feathers, truly. But it's just that Porsche doesn't design that car for the gold-chain crowd, sincerely.
It doesn't matter as I just used it as an example.
Obviously it touched a nerve, but since Porsche sold 18,000 Cayenne SUV's compared to 10,000 911's in 2013 U.S. sales, It's obvious that every porsche sold isn't isn't aimed at a motor sports market, but it helps fund their traditional cars.
You know . . . as a professional photographer that has made 100% of our household income in the industry for most of my adult life, I've listened to . . . I dunno about a billion people who own a __fill in the blanks__ and call themselves a photographer.
I guess I could take exception and explain to them my view of what a photographer is, but I've learned to not judge by quick comments and honestly have been pleasantly surprised by a few very good enthusiasts.
But back to the T type. I messed around with one, think it's interesting, might be the future of things to come.
I wouldn't go as far as calling the T a bauble, but for serious photography it's more of an interesting anecdote that an actual balls out tool.
What I find interesting is the operating system in concept, less in function, though I believe the concept could have a more involved purpose
if Leica chose to expand upon it.
