Great camera! The only bummer is the video spec. No 24/25P? I think Oly leaves some money on the table here.

I like the idea of EM5 5-axis IBIS and f1.2 (with the DOF of f2.4 on FF). That means you can slow the shutter, keep ISO down, and still get enough stuff in focus. Lots of creative possibilities!

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 Preview preview (416 comments in total)

Nice addition to M43. It's going to be a video monster, and a very good still camera in one package (depending on sensor performance). It's like a mini 7D for M43 format.

Now M43 has a range of options from very small bodies and pancakes to larger setups for more serious photography/videography. The new lenses also make the lens catalogue robust, definitely the most mature among the mirrorless formats.

Start saving. If it rises to SHG quality, then it's going to be awesome. Awesomeness normally doesn't come cheap. I spent more on a Canon 135L and love it. If you like the focal length or want an alternative to a tele zoom, this is it.

The design suggests bokehliciousness.

On Preview: Canon PowerShot G1 X large sensor zoom compact article (776 comments in total)

Nice move overall. I prefer a 24-85mm focal range. That would have hit all the usual prime focal lengths that people like. 28mm is ok. 24mm is great.

This sensor is not that much bigger than m43, so it'll be interesting to see what else happens with Canon in 2012.

Dan Ortego: Sony is in the same boat (sorry, couldn't resist) so maybe this may sway them to build a plant somewhere that's less prone to flooding. Say... Arizona.

I'm impressed by their resilience! Although I don't own any Nikon gear, this is about the human factor. Best wishes to all in Thailand affected by the floods!

Nice! Not many tiny 100gram lenses do what this one does. The triple prime era has arrived: Oly 12/2, Panny 20/1.7, Oly 45/1.8

Just want to say thanks for the extra effort! It helps some of us, who have other Oly gear, see how this new body copes with NR and sharpening.
