Retro1976: My first mirrorless love was Olympus and it still has a special place in my heart. I have since moved onto Fuji, but I still look back form time to time and wonder what I am missing (isn't the grass always greener ?) I think Olympus really nailed the Film modes, they definitely have a slide look to them that's very authentic.
Come back to Olympus - you really want to !
I'm in Australia and have today received my A01 but can't use it as I can't download an Apple app from Apple Australia !Does anyone have a solution ?Am I stupid to think I could buy and use this camera in Australia and is there any warning that I should have seen that would have prevented this face ?
Different - YES !
garyroxene: E-M1 No Video?
Yes it has video !
Roadtripper: " announced to new wideangle 'Pro' lenses"...good thing they didn't announce "for" new lenses, or especially "ate" new lenses...and this person gets paid to write these articles, but not to "right" them...
Two ! much Blashfomey for a speeling misstake !DEsmond 22 will be after you too !
I like the camera but will wait for the updated firmware User feedback before buying the camera ! To announce the update 2 months before releasing it means the Olympus OMD EM-1 Mk.11 is almost on the horizon and FUJIFILM knows this !
cgarrard: Time for a recall, I'm sure Canon are all over it already in the production centers.
:) LOL !
SteB: As I've tried to explain on the forum, this is very uniform distribution, which is the opposite of random distribution.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Randomness
If this was just random dust it would not be distributed like this. It could be dust trapped in the sandwich covering the sensor, but there would have to be something in the manufacturing process causing it to be evenly distributed. This is why I'm guessing a fault in the manufacturing process, for it to cause this uniform distribution.
Anyone who has studied distribution, randomness, statistics and probability in depth, will be aware that it is very unlikely that such a uniform distribution like this would be caused by a random fault like dust falling onto something. It could be dust again, but it would be dust formed by part of a process.
I'm fairly certain this will be fixed, once they discover what part of the manufacturing process is causing it.
You win a defective Canon !
Frank_BR: Possibly the spots are micro bubbles of gas that formed after the cameras have gone through quality control.
The ORBS are back they are attacking Canon not FUJIFILM this time !
KingOfAtlantis: Came for the comments
Lay back and looked at the stars !
D darstars me thinks !
Prairie Pal: oh my god....it's full of stars!
I'm in Heaven ,
EM-1 Mk.11 my lenses are ready !
enenzo: Welcome to Samsung which is now entering the group of camera manufacturers (Panasonic, Fuji and Sony) who are innovative and reach for the stars.
I must admit I have been skeptical about Samsung as a serious camera manufacturer - but this is class, and yet, yet, another shock and another competitor for Canon and Nikon.
Well done Samsung!
They make a mean fridge too !
The Vorlon: So we have the usual - a device not available till June, and two people 'had it' and 1 'owns' it... smh
Are you a had it or a own it ?
Recent firmware updates have users blown away with delight !
Tracking and frame rate improvements have turned it into a real all round sports and wildlife enthastics camera with all the other benefits of mft's !
Franz Weber: Silver award is enough.Have you considered how utterly high the gold price has risen?If dpreview gave every camera a gold award they would be bacrupt in no time!Those claimouring for a gold award should donate some of their own gold to dpreview.
Does Amazon know what GOLD is ?
GOLD GOLD. GOLD -- Richard -- it's not to late to change your mind !
All you have to do is read DPREVIEW 's review and you'll give it GOLD !
Richard please give it a try and see how comfortable GOLD feels !
beomagi: 40MP mode would be killer for macros.
Wouldn't you call this GOLDEN inovation !
showmeyourpics: Camera gear should be judged by what you get out of it and at what cost (money and aggravation). If what you do with it is pixel peeping and/or bragging about it, then let's face it, you are not a photographer. Making large prints is the most demanding output with slide shows and sharing on the web being much less challenging. I love to travel to places that inspire me (Nature, city's, etc.) and can afford or intend to visit only once, and want reliable gear at affordable prices that is comfortable to carry around and let me make high quality prints up to 24x36". Here comes the M4/3 system with the new killer E-M5 II body and a record selection of good-to-excellent lenses (minuscule F/3.5 or f/4 lenses, larger pro level f/2.8 models, and all the 4/3 lenses with an inexpensive AF adapter) at a decent price. I do my diligent and fun research and, to the best of my knowledge, there is nothing else out there that can match its combination of quality, versatility, ergonomics and price.
@ Shoemeuourpics -- Couldn't express it better - What a camera , what a format , what lenses and what a company OLYMPUS innovation from OM1 to EM-5 Mk11 all firsts along the way( most of them becoming industry standards and adopted by the opposition ) and the reward a SILVER award !
