Subject: [Leica] Images from the Epson R-D1

Try Babelfish. I almost think that since the surname of the image copyright 
holder (and may be the article writer) is Shun and that the pictures were 
taken in Hong Kong that the article may have been written in Chinese, then 
translate to Japanese. Which may explain further unreadability when 
translated by Babelfish :-)

Points of Note, the best I can gather, which of course can be wrong:
- the author thinks even though the CCD is the Sony CCD, the picture 
quality shows there are some differences? especially some sort of color 

- the short effective baselength makes focusing very critical

- Noise level is good, even at 1600.

- Currently only RAW mode is supported, so you can do the hyperfocusing, 
shoot from the hip style of photographing, but then you have to wait for 
the write to be done. Not sure whether the production camera will support 
JPG mode or not.

- the author only used VC lens, he should have tried it w/ the Leica lenses
