User8606253983: Looking good, but outdated sensor. When will we get new sensors on m43. Been on 16 mp a while now. Would like my next om-d to have a few more pixels if possible.
Agreed, Hen3ry. This camera has so much on offer for its price point. But, as we see time and time again, dpreviewers will find *something* to complain about ... haha. Just think if Canon released a mirrorless with these specs - it would be deemed "revolutionary".
"outdated" implies there is an updated sensor that could have been used... is there a better sensor available in the m43 format?
bmwzimmer: They need to hire some of the designers at Fuji. It's a great camera for sure but boy is it ugly.
Indeed! Were it pink and oval and I called it "femine and smooth" would you have disagreed?
i love it... very masculine and edgy
riveredger: It's funny that some of these lenses are priced higher than motorcycles. I mean, really!?
Well, as the idiom goes, a fool and his money are soon parted.
Your loss, Karl. Photography is fun and all, but it is nothing like going for a ride.
Not really conjecture, Revenant. There are some lenses sold in very low volumes at very high margins. That's business.
The analogy to motorcycles was simply to demonstrate the sheer price being charged for some glass and a small motor contrasted with a large motor and LOTS more components. Both are precision instruments requiring large investments in R&D and Engineering. I personally think that lenses are way overpriced for what we are actually getting.
KZMike: Am in the process of shopping for the Lumix FZ1000. . . the Olympus, by not having a larger sensor is keeping me on track to buy the FZ1000 next month, though I like the build of this and lens speed it offers,
The Olympus is all about the size advantage. There is no other camera with its features, including the constant 2.8 and excellent EVF, in such a compact package. I looked at the FZ1000 and RX10 and both are cameras you would really only take out when you were going out strictly to take pictures. The Olympus is one you would just take along on a more regular basis. My opinion of course.
Actually, it tells us more about the margins.

Mike99999: If it had a built-in EVF, I might have been interested. For now, the GM5 does the same but better. And with a better lens selection.
The Panasonic AF, as good as it is, cannot track like these 1 cameras.
Photo_Joe: More information about limits:
* " Photos and videos must be smaller than 2 GB. "
"For photos: JPEG, BMP, PNG and most TIFF files (these files typically have the .jpg, .jpeg, .bmp, .png or .tiff extensions). In addition, some RAW format photo can also be viewed. "
So, GIF, PSD seems like not supported, it's not unlimited storage for that formats.But PNG, TIFF and RAW is nice.
Just how much of a pessimist are you??
$1 per month for unlimited storage? . I am in!
AbrasiveReducer: Somehow, expecting a camera that modeled on a classic rangefinder camera to be good for video seems unreasonable. But I would agree that if someone wants a zoom lens, this would be a less than ideal choice.
Why would the aesthetics of a camera dictate that it is unreasonable to expect better video performance?
aarif: why Sony did not use this AF in the A7 bodies?
Why did Sony not ...
BarnET: To be honest i think these 2 rebels turned out much better then what many expected.
It has the 19 all crosstype AF system which is still highly regarded.More megapixels then the flagship 7d mk2And the t6s/760d comes with many great features.
The top lcd and 2 control dials are not found on it's main competitor.I am looking forward to reviews of this truly new sensor that has been pushed in 3 new models.
Canon has not made such a big move in half a decade.
Agreed. The T6s looks like a camera that will be plenty for most uses, and allow for advanced control for the more demanding enthusiasts. I am not sure about the compact camera like quick control dial on the rear, though. I was never a fan of those.
caravan: Camera of the year/decade,blows everything else out of the water.
"blows everything else out of the water" ...yet your cat photos will still look the same to everyone who looks at them
farzee: I was waiting to hear if Canon is going to give us the DR close to or on par with Sony / Nikon cameras. Unfortunately, now I know that the DR is the same as my 5D 3.
I have spent enough on Canon and the reason I did over the years was because of its technological innovations. Now that it has run out of it, I'll be exploring options like A7R or A7S. Will still use EF Lenses for now, but Zeiss ZE lenses will be my first preference, if they are available in that focal length. I just simply cannot keep taking 5 shots to make up for the short comings of Canon's sensor and spend hours merging them in Photoshop when that could be done with usually 2 or max 3 shots with Sony and Nikon!
If the 5D3 doesn't have enough DR for you, then you are probably doing something wrong. I don't own a Canon now, but there are plenty of superb photos with plenty of DR posted all over the web for you see.
onlooker: I am curious how many of those that voted actually use any of those cameras...
Does that matter? Unless you used all of the gear in the poll you would just be introducing another form of bias.
