Why are these lenses so heavy? I understand the Zeiss may have premium glass but the 70-200 f/4 G? At 840 g it's not exactly mirrorless weight and is heavier than the Canon 70-200 f/4 IS!

thx1138: Nice camera, but I always laugh at how every manufacturer claims to have the worlds fastest AF. What's that Dire Straights song which has the lyrics " 2 men say their Jesus, one of them must be wrong"

More importantly, what is this High Performance mode?

Bram de Mooij: I like the Olympus system with bright and sharp primes like 12 / 2 , 45 / 1.8 and 60 / 2.8. However in the tele range I think it is all still rather bad.
I have the Pana 100-300, but I am not impressed with it. I have tried the 75-300 mk 1, but was not impressed with that one either. It seems good tele still requires more weight and money :-)
That is where my Nikon D300 with 70-200/ 2.8 (+1.7 x extender) still beats the MFT system with ease. Pity, because I would like to have one system for all.

Not soon to launch, already launched.

Cane: So if you are outside and don't have wifi, you are stuck using the cable only, like it's 1980?

I do like how it supports many more camera models. Making it sort of an ubiquitous experience.

It's like how some people choose to use Lightroom fearing down the road they won't have a Mac anymore, thus no more Aperture.

Sparksnl: Since the high brightness level was blinding me after starting it up for the first time (and all other tries, ios version) I uninstalled it after 1 minute. I can't work with an app that maximizes the brightness. After lowering the brightness it went up again when I entered the app. I was completly blinded.

Isn't this article about how it has become a free app? What's the problem?

Artak Hambarian: The app is not compatible with my Samsung Galaxy Tab...

What version of Android?

This is the problem with Android segmentation. Just because something is made for Android doesn't mean every device can run it.

gl2k: Perky price.
Nikon DX 35mm f1.8 and FX 50mm f1.8 are about €170

It's not competing in the same equivalent focal length as the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR DX 35 mm f/1.8.

Phew, mouthful.

Voldenuit: Any news on 20/1.7 + banding issues?

The banding issue is real, however if the photo is exposed correctly you shouldn't notice it. Everyone is hoping for a solution soon.

With the type of equipment he's working with I'm thoroughly impressed. I've been following the site for a few days now.

On Olympus issues OM-D E-M5 firmware v1.2 article (41 comments in total)

David28: Am I missing something or is this an update just for Windows. The Mac link has no equivalent update.

Seems an odd way to issue firmware.

I updated using my Mac just fine. Just install the Olympus Updater and go.

It's the same process as Windows. Software came on disc, and I also found a link to download online if you misplaced it.

People are missing the mark on this one. It's not all aperture rating or the lack thereof. Leica's produced a lens that is not affected the chromatic aberration.

Dougbm_2: The 12-50 looks too large and the images from it not so impressive. Would it therefore be better with a 14-42? Although the review shows samples from a few lenses I didn't read a comment on the 12-50 lens (did skim the review a bit though). Seems Olympus have done a great job.

You understand the 12-50mm measures 83mm in length right?

Take out a ruler and see how long that is in reality. It's 3.3 inches if you're American.
