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 ?

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 !

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 !

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 !

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 ?

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 !

Valiant Thor: Silver Award? I've had this camera for about 2 weeks and it is fantastic! I like using it over my GH4 and I would rate the E-M5 M2 somewhere in the titanium ~ kryptonite range. Five stars in my book and I've owned a LOT of cameras; a fact for which my wife will be eager to testify against me.

P.S.: The M2 is far more than a minor, incremental upgrade over the E-M5 (which I also have). If the reviewer can't see that, he should seek alternative employment. This kind of work requires a high degree of perspicacity.

@ Richard Butler - Which is the "the stand-out best camera in this class " please Richard ? It would be really helpful to me to know why you consider it to be so - then I would be able to put the GOLD factor to bed !
Regards
By the way GREAT REVIEW ( a lot of effort put into camera's very fine inovations - Olympus the most innovative camera company around ) BUT SILVER - no way !
