    Thank you😉. Its obviously a very personal thing. I've had a number of smaller sensored cameras but the Canin 1D series led me straight back to FF (but weren't good for my back) and, with the exception of the M8, I've been with FF ever since. I've used other, more up to date FF cameras but they just don't work well for me. Perhaps I'm just a dinosaur🙄. But smaller sensor is the logical place for a start up company to work from; why complcate matters when you can evolve a camera?
    Choice of gear is a very personal thing provided of course that it is based on genuine requirements as opposed to conjecture😲.

    I photograph fish on a fairly regular basis (I'm writing a second ID guide at the moment). Stress them and some can shuft colour. So photographing them without stressing them is essential. That said, the presence of a large underwater camera, focus light and flash units, to say nothing of an air belching monster behind them can be intimdating and stressful to a small animal!

    Funny that APS-C is considered a problem for Pixii and not for the digital CL in this good old forum .

    I recently bought a lens. Trying to find a really objective review on the web prior to buying it proved to be difficult, if not nigh impossible. Most 'reviewers' never state exactly what credentials they have for producing a worthwhile review, most then use vague terminology and make sweeping statements and, worst of all, demonstrate their findings generally with web jpegs or if not, allow bland RAW files to be downloaded which rarely demonstrate 'stressed' photographic situations (where the equipment can be seen performing under a testing condition). So I gave up on reviews, bought the lens and tried it myself. It works fine, delivers well enough and I know that the person who tested it (me) knows exatly what he wants to use it for(😊). Problem solved.

    To be honest I would suggest that a full frame Pixii at < £5000 might well create a lot of interest and appeal to a rather broader audience (myself included). The current camera should indicate just how effective the new company is at building cameras and responding to te inevitable problems associated with building such sophisticated items as a new start up. If the feedback is good (and so far a lot seems to be) then it will be interesting to watch what happens. I wish Pixii well, and although for me a crop sensor is not something I want to go back to, I have no doubts that it can be a very effctive format. I currently have far more concerns with the direction that Leica is taking the M than I do with Pixii, based on specifications.

    You're mostly doing charcoal on wood, then?
    If it has software, it has bugs. Not that it takes software, of course. You can implement bugs in hardware, too.
    The M8 had bugs (several). The M9 had bugs (several) and one hidden fault. The M (Typ 240) had bugs. And so on. So you didn't buy or use any of those, either, I presume.
    I agree that it would be really nice for a product to be fully free of bugs at launch, but this has little to do with reality. At least I can tell you that software bugs can be found, described, analyzed and, perhaps, even be fixed, at the risk, of course, of introducing new bugs.
    You know, of course, the technical term for a woman waiting for the man without any faults? Spinsters, they are called.

    Same here. For a time Leica offered the most efficient 'pro service' that I've ever used. But it seems to have quietly disappeared. I take this to mean that Leica no longer see their cameras as being within the 'pro' market anymore. A real pity and given that there has always been a penchant for marketting cameras as being used by pros, its not a good indicator of the direction Leica are taking. I have little doubt that the marketplace for higher end photographic gear is shrinking and oversaturated with too may players in. it. It seems an odd way to operate with a lack of pro service, undoubted QC issues and high prices. The next few years will be interesting.
