  • Lynx

    some kind of crap.

  • notapic

    > 5000 dollars

    > contrast focusing

    > viewfinder 0.78x

  • Victor

    Citizens who do not need a watering can unsubscribed that they do not need it. Everything goes according to plan ©

    • Maksim

      So the funniest thing is to read diarrhea under the next announcement of “inaccessible technology”.

  • Trueash

    TTX is the number one thing. The design is super! Bauhaus in the camera industry

  • koba

    a great reincarnation of some kind of Panasonic camera. The long-awaited camera for just what $ 5000, which became just a lot during the pandemic ...

  • Kievan

    koba, oh, how wrong you are.
    Right now, when in many countries governments have spent hundreds of billions on "business support", there are a LOT of wealthy citizens (from among those who master and distribute these same billions) able to buy this very Lake for 5 thousand. And this watering can is such a trifle for them, here whole countries and cities are being bought up on the vine ...

    • koba

      I just meant it. there are people and even more of them have appeared who now easily buy yachts, Lakes for them are gifts to their own (and not!) children for their birthdays ...

      • Oleg

        if you do not see the plot then the watering can will not save you

  • Oleg

    The lens 28 \ 1.7 is removed on the watering can.

  • Anatoly

    The number of controls on this camera is amazing)

  • Pokemon

    Examples of shots:

    • Oleg

      Thank you

  • Paul

    I thought all the "watering cans" are quite often rangefinder and vintage, but with a matrix, and therefore not in demand and expensive, but here autofocus, EVI, who needs such retro?
