After browsing in the new layout for quite some time I think I have a clear opinion about the new look and feel. In general I like the new approach with the header including News, Reviews etc. Nicely presented, worth to continue reading. Even more worth for the community to add own articles as they are not that hidden anymore. Nicely done.
What I do not like is the layout of the forum itself. There is so much unused space and I find it hardly readable, hard to get an overview which thread has new content and which thread not. If I remember correctly the former RDF had those small icons telling you instantly if there is something new going on after your last visit or not. Now I need to check the date and the font color of the date is hardly readable. It would be also super cool if the margins in the thread and post overviews could be scaled down to the actual content and do not showing so much unused space. It would also help a lot to add common forum shortcuts like go to first unread post or showing threads/post with new content in bold font etc.
I also think that the user experience is heavily responsible for the possibility that the community could grow. If I wouldn't be a long-time member of this community, the accesibility of the forum would not invite me to participate. I would also suggest to have a direct link in the header named “Forum” as this is maybe something people looking for as first time visitors. “RDF Community” is the last in the line and than you have to open the menu to find the forum. This is a long way to get here.
Addig these features would really roundup the new user experience, look and feel of the site and I think it would be worth it and to the benefit of the community.
Just my two cent.

Thanks for the Feedback guys.
@david: It would be interesting but those tests are expensive. 😎
A more stable head may help, but very often time is of the essence and when not being in an open car you have to shoot through the window, so no way of using a tripod. On top, if you are not alone in your car, your companions move, so is your camera. Even if you get out of the car, it is a hide and seek game and you better try to be a part of the car's shape, so a beanbag comes in much more handy. Bottom line, most times there is no time for a tripod. This would look different if you are going for a drive in an open Safari vehicle. Let's see if I will continue this test at some time. 😉

Nice read David. Thanks.
I was lucky to get my hands on the camera yesterday and I must admit that it is a really nice, modern, leight camera. I love the possibility to use M lenses. Used it with a Nocti and it worked just great. Can't wait to shoot more with it. 😀

Thanks for the info. Do you have any idea when they announce the dates for the next year?

Really nice. I have the Goodwood Revival still on my list. Would love to see more images.

Do you have a proper profile for the S in C1? I must admit I am not sure if C1 is supporting the S. Have you tried LR?

That is not really much PP. Looks like a powerful little camera. I have to play with it next time I visit a Leica dealer. 🙂
