Kudos to Olympus OM-D! A fast street machine!
Apr 30, 2012

Just went through the review... Some of the highlights that impressed me from the angle of street photography:

  • Very compact, light.

  • Perfectly usable ISO 6400! (Finally the m43 too appropriated it as standard.. Leica?!?)

  • Some real great lenses to be used at full aperture with no concerns (and plausible cost). The Summilux 25/1.4 Asph. is outstanding, the 20/1.7 Lumix and the 12/2 too..

  • Tiltable screen; use it waist/hip level like a Rolleiflex.

  • First class, fast and reliable AF! (So important when you do not have an optical rangefinder..)

  • 5-axis image stabilization! (1/4 sec. for everybody.)

  • Ubiquitous adapters for almost any lens existing on the planet...

What would I add to this body to convert it into a lightning fast street machine? Just a detachtable optical finder to match the FL of the lens used; as I would be relying on the AF being accurate & fast and the DOF of a 25mm lens at f5.6 or 8 is miles long..

Bravo Olympus for setting a model for the rest of the industry!
