StevenE: The sensor is only 22% wider than full frame. For perspective, full frame is 62% wider than APS-C, and more than 100% as wider than MFT sensors.
manchumuq .... I use width because a lot of the extra sensor area is in height, which I don't find as useful. FF is already only 3x2. Maybe you much prefer squarish pics.Anyway ... your arrogant self-satisfied comment is about as old and overused as your rubber doll.
This thing is barely medium format. The sensor is only 22% wider than full frame. For perspective, full frame is 62% wider than APS-C, and more than 100% as wider than MFT sensors.Previous Hasselblads were 50% wider than full frame

Osa25: Just what I've been looking for, for summer travel. Should have been on the market earlier though - they will not get out out to all markets in time.
The original is junk. Not even reliable as a standard external drive
People question m4/3 format for good reason when we see lenses like this at US$1300.This is equivalent to a FF 24 f/2.8, which can be had for Canon at US$550, less than half the price and it is smaller and lighter. Even more significantly, you can get a FF 24mm f/1.4 from Sigma for US$850, that's a US$450 savings, and there is, and likely never will be, a m4/3 equivalent to that!So, although it has it's uses, micro 4/3 is a compromised format
ogl: It's just 24/2.8 FF lens analogue in terms of DOF.
Not 28 mmm , it's 24mm f/2.8 ... and yes it's a limitation of micro 4/3 with a crop factor of 2
This is exciting fundamental research, the kind of thing that can revolutionize imaging in 5 or 10 years
Ocolon: I don’t need an action cam but it’s interesting to see the return of a 1/2.3" sensor with 8 megapixels due to the demand for 4K. Maybe this will find its way into more products, making people looking for lower resolution point and shoot cameras happy again?
bobbarber ... there are theoretical limits that can be calculated without testing, or the arrogance of those who don't understand theoretical limits.
Favorable Exponynt ... mosc explanation is excellent. He explained that it was for 1/2.3" sensor. What is it that you don't understand?
Shallow DOF sports and action shots would be a much better test of this cameras capabilities. Almost none included in these samples
Love Trey's work
Donnie G: High IQ, lightweight, compact size, easy to use without the need for any additional accessaries, cheap to own, and most importantly, fun for photographers of all skill levels to use, carry, and experiment with. People who have never considered buying an EOS M body will buy one now just to be able to use this lens with it. This is how you sell interchangeable lens cameras. Watch the sales figures and learn from the master. :))
CosminMunteanu ... don't forget the 11-22 ... this is very small and light and wide ... and it has IS.I have the 22mm f/2 and the 11-22 ... both are great reasons to buy the M system. I'll this macro lens too. This is a very versatile, light weight little setup
Caerolle: Wow, interesting photos with great composition! Allison should take all the photos from now on.
It's funny how horrible the noise is, though, even at 1600.
These photos are on par with other sample galleries here.
StevenE: Some of these cameras are getting pretty old
The panasonic FZ1000 is two years old. Moron.

Tipsy Reactions ... Horse and buggy is great too, if you're a nostalgia kind of guy with lots and lots of time.
Can I have a pocket version? No more than $1500, ok?
StevenE: This lens weighs more than my Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS II ... but I doubt it will deliver as good an image on crop as the 70-200 does on FF.Not seeing the point, unless it's for a pro video camera like Cx00 or Sony FS series. Just move to a FF camera .
@karlx ... that's why I moved to FF many years ago (I'm currently using the Canon 5D3). But I also have crop cameras and lenses: 60D, EOS-M, EOS-M3. I will probably buy the Canon 80D for the DPAF in video, if there's no moire and aliasing. But I find this big heavy lens without IS, is a bit much. If I really need shallow DOF and low light I'll reach for a prime, or a FF body
