Thank you, Herman. Although I know there are some that really don't care about Photokina, there are plenty who do. I have to tell you that until this past year, I was oblivious to its existence. Now, I do have an interest. Some of my interest is personal, some is just the garden variety kind of "Hmm, I wonder what's new?" type, while realizing that there has to be a good amount of marketing, corporate bottom line jockeying going on for these manufacturers, too.
I saw that Noisy Camera's has established a "situation room" which did make me laugh out loud.
I see that Steve Huff has been gazing into his "crystal ball" again with regards to what Leica may be bringing to the Photokina table: Photokina around the corner…whats new from Leica? My predictions… | STEVE HUFF PHOTOS and it's not just about what most people think is the sure thing, either.
It will be interesting to me to see if Leica does bring out a new camera somewhere "between" the X1 and the M9. Inquiring minds will be waiting.
Timing is everything, or so they say. Chances are with a number of "new issues" that people will have to wait for several months even if they're interested. That said, I do know exactly what you mean.Not sure I'm too bothered about what Photokina will bring as I don't expect them to be bringing out a more "pro" NEX but who knows, I may be surprised. I know if I buy one this week that's what will surely happen though
I'm still waiting for an interchangeable lens camera with rangefinder-like-looks, with AF and a built in viewfinder, without a leica price tag, provided the IQ is reasonable I'd probably buy one right away. The Fuji X100 comes close (see here:https://www.photographerslounge.org/f9/fuji-new-rangefinder-form-448/)
