    Why does the underwater world end at 50 for camera manufacturers?

    Looks comical.

    The red dot needs to be made much bigger to make it clearly visible to other people underwater.

      So that Sharks and Killer Squids will be attracted to it.

    WOW Leica shooting to everywhere! Desperate???

    Looks like a 7-23 mm lens or am I misunderstanding that, because it doesn’t look like a zoom?

    • no, 35mm equivalent f/17 ASPH lens

      • Cynog

        I was a bit confused because I thought it says 7/23 on the lens, but now I see it’s actually 1.7/23. A zoom lens would not go well with an underwater camera, I guess.

          The Nikon 1 AW has one zoom lens.

        • Martin Kozák

          No problem with internal zooming.

    And the Price? Since it is Leica..Anything below 2 Grand…I would be surprised. Leica Families need to eat.
