cocopro: ”The APD was actually suggested by our technical R&D team, who had this 'magical' filter, so we added it.“

correct me if I'm wrong, this filter was out in 2009 and the designer claimed Fuji never contacted him about using this design.

‘our reason to exist is to push the envelope so that our pal SONY can break it.'

Looks like a reversed version of speed booster...

wootpile: good samples, shows the limitations of the lens, perhaps the format

Ridiculously expensive camera! same pricepoint as a Fuji kit!

aljudy you are right, I forgot to count Leica branded Pany lenses. Still, it's a $500 plastic lens, and you can get 3rd party f0.95 lenses for SONY and FUJI too.
MFT is a decent system, but fanboyism is killing it. All they do is repeating: sensor size means nothing; large lenses are ridiculous; other mirrorless can't AF; and of course IBIS is a mus have. Too bad they can't mention body size anymore, damn you EM1.

LOL@Olympus 75 1.8, it's a $900 prime, it better be stunning. Most MFT primes are plastic and still expensive, not to mention the fastest you can get from Pany or Oly is only f1.8 after all these years. All you MFTer are bragging about AF, making a impression that SONY and FUJI cameras are unusable, but the truth is, there are plenty of beautiful photos taken by both systems, their AF speed is nowhere near unusable. If you are spoiled by fast AF maybe it's time to think before you shot.

TorsteinH: Gold award for a camera with slow focus that takes close to 1 sec to focus and then a seond delay until next shoot. But maybee I'm missing something...?

Ever heard of manual focus lens? If you don't think before you shot, I guess AF speed is very important. Don't forget to troll Leica BTW.

Olympus should sell EM1 @ $2000, cause whoever is paying $1400 for it wouldn't mind $600 more, and there will still be tons of comments trying to justify the price.

GodSpeaks: This is the camera the GX1 SHOULD have been.

From a list of features, it blows the Sony NEX out of the water as NEX is so feature poor. Time for Sony to up their game.

Now I can ditch my NEX-6 and go all in on micro four thirds.

show some respect to SONY, no SONY = no new sensor for your MFT. For $650 NEX6 holds better value anyway.

aris14: M4/3 is a winning format for most people's need I guess.
This baby seems to be superb.
Pana made a great job...
Who believed it some 10 years ago that Pana is going to be amongst the leading players in photography?

M4/3, when on sale, is a winning format. Nothing beats a $199 GX1, but there are many options @ $1000. At least Panny is doing better than Oly, EP5@ $1000, new OMD rumored @$1500. Well, I guess die-hard fan boys will find a way to justify their purchase over full frame.

RedSkiesAtNight: DxO shows that there is really no noticeable difference in performance between these latest M43 cameras and APS. Add IBIS, and they leapfrog ahead.

IBIS, Focus Peaking, smallest lenses, flip-up evf - this camera appears to be what many have waited for.

DxO score = color/DR/noise, you still have to consider DOF control + cropping/printing freedom (24mp vs 16mp). It's still safe to say that APSC is 1/4 (instead of 1/3 from crop factor) better than MFT and cost less.

In reply to:

Plastek: Hm... seems like none of them can compare with best of A-mount lenses. Basically: nothing changed during last 2-3 years. Sad.

DOX lens rating is related to body format, nikon 85mm f/1.4G is rated 40 on D600 and 25 on D7000. If you limit body format to APS-C then the best score of any tested lens is only 26, close to the score of 24 for E mount.

50mm/f1.8 = very good bang for the buck, primes for E & MFT with similar performance sell for 2x-3x price.
Zeiss = rich man's toys.

alatchin: 1/8000 of a sec, 1/320 sync speed, new smaller AF point, dual controls, tilt screen, WiFi, direct my mode access, greater flexibility with control setup, ISO 100 (even with a bit of highlight clipping), improved IBIS functionality...

I mean with all the whiners here you would think this was a paperweight.

In terms of price, the $1449 for the kit is a good deal, you get a great prime lens and superb EVF (which you can use on any older PEN models you have). In a few months it will be available for $100, a year later about $200 off.

Question is, do you need anything on that list right now, I can see three that would benefit me easily, 1/8000, 1/320 and smaller AF point would have an impact.

X100 after 2 year is still over $800, E-P3 after 2 years is like what, $379? Some ppl just bend the truth to defend their camera's brand, just sad

for what's included in the bundle, I'd rather just get the $1299 X100S, better sensor, MUCH smaller size, 1/2000 sync speed, build-in ND filter, silent shutter, PDAF, and you get an extra OVF for less money.
