It is a digital Leica, but anyhow ... I like the ad, not boring at all !
It's funny. Leica's "boring ad" has gone viral so it's obviously working. Love it or hate it, an awful lot of people are talking about it. You can't ask more from an "ad." So I'd say it was a stroke of genius. Though... It's not for everyone. Heh.
I stopped watching after about a minute and a half. I would have done so sooner but I was hoping it would get better. A hand made body on a Yugo car does not impress me. I'm not much impressed by digital cameras,which are ephemeral. I have to admit the thrust of the ad is well targeted to the Great Unwashed public out there. After it all it was a German-born shrink-turned-adman that convinced General Motors to sell "Hardtop Convertibles." It's the same idea here.
So much negativity... Of course none of this will affect the image it creates. And indeed, this much detail on a limited-lifespan (digital) camera seems a bit... Misguided. As for the quality of photos on "Leica forums" that may very well be true; especially on DPR and LUF. But there ARE good ones out there, too - like GetDPI and LVL. You can find rank amateur photos on ANY forum.
But perhaps there are those (with the means to purchase it) that just appreciate clean design, and solidly built cameras? Sure, a Fuji will have more features at half the price - but it feels like a cheap plastic toy.
As for the innards (specs) of the T... Sure, nothing fancy there. But it IS a solid performer. Look, this isn't a camera for the likes of us here.
