racketman: $899 is £556, £667 with 20% VAT not £850, welcome to Rip Off Britain.

If you buy something from the US and ship it to the UK, I find that customs and duties in addition to VAT and shipping costs usually makes something that is worth 100 USD = 100 GBP!

On Hand-painted Olympus E-P5 comes with bonus... Vespa? article (51 comments in total)

I saw it on Thursday when I thought of visiting the technology section at Harrods. There was a couple of Olympus cameras in a glass display with that Vespa next to them. When I looked at the price I was so shocked that I couldn't look again no matter how much I tried.

Thanks dpreview for reminding me with that unbelievable price.

Princess Leia: This is not innovation. Sony has been doing the phase detection autofocus with their SLT cameras for a while now. Having said that, it is nice to know Canon is playing catch up.


Sony have a dual PDAF system on its A99 model; on-sensor PDAF as well as the PDAF SLT technology. Although I have to admit that this solution seems to be half baked when compared with Canon have managed to make with this.

vFunct: Shutters weren't synced properly (see motion flickering between frozen images), but a good start. Can go pro be triggered externally?

I think that it is apparent that the producer made that in purpose.

Whether the flickering effect was nice or not is another matter.

Sigma, solve the problem with availability of your older models before announcing any new ones. I am still trying to find a place that stocks the 35 1.4 for the sony mount and they announce even more new models!

Bill_Clinton: Not that exciting, Jerry Ghionis did the same ages ago and he had way nicer pictures:

Now this is the work of an artist and a real pro. Not the typical colorful Indian theme style photos above.
