    Not sure if he's brand ambassador, but you can read more here.

    Some of the photos are nice la, but if you're talking about good photography with a Leica.. There are many better out there imho!

    It's a very fine camera, doesn't look bad at all if you look at the actual thing. It feels very solid in hand, much solid than any m4/3 camera out there.
    Yes boss. Whatever u say.

    I agree with u. Its a nice one. Have to give it a miss though... No clearance to buy. Have to wait for chance to bring it up again.

    Only got chance taking a roll of film w/ the new 40mm lens today, didn't play the camera much. But here are a few quick snaps anyway.

    One of the very first testing shots after I opened the box:




    Some quick high ISO test I did a few min ago (RAW converted by CS5, no noise reduction) ...

    ISO3200:


    ISO12800:


    ISO25600:

    I hope it covers the 35mm image circle like the da40 ltd. That would be cool

    FW, looks like its so far so good for the ISO performance.

    I think the GXR one in BnW mode is even easier.

    I tried the k-01. Similar to the color version of GXR.

    Hi Fengwei, Is the K-01 shutter noticeably quieter than the K-05?

    Darn. Looks like it will be the K5 if I were to get some MF lenses.

    lol If you like to shoot in B&W only, maybe. I used both 5N and GXR, Ricoh's peaking on it's lowrez screen is very unreliable, you can't rely on that. NEX' peaking is spot on without focus assist. I hope the K-01's peaking is usable without relying on magnification.

    After played the camera for a short while, all I can say is the IQ withi this new camera is as good as K5, video quality is super (I need to find somewhere to post the video). For the selling price here in Singapore, it's really the best deal

    He sold his 645D awhile back, claims he does mostly B&W and prefers film.
