Yxa: This is what I wanted and it's a joke That's sad
I do agree. Desired butjust a joke.
Optically nothing new, just see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telecompressor, they are used when you want to fit a larger Sky subject inside your frame and, yes they do luminosity gain. The problem is if they make the AF work properly, in astrophotography the subject is always at the infinite mark ... :-)
Well. Now Panasonic or Olympus can make a copy of a m4/3 camera without the color array. It should not be expensive and puts a good idea at an earthly level.
Even further, without the IR-UV cut filter.
Not the hi-end cameras, something like the GF2. They could be not expensive and maybe cheap. With very good lenses ten times better than the Leica ones in terms of rendition/cost.
sunhorse: This is a huge improvement. Not only are the ergonomics superior, the IQ has now reached the level where most enthusiast photogs (non-measurebators) would be very happy. Congrats to Olympus imaging.
(I agree, just started to buy some lens, Pana 14, Pana 45-175 and Oly 45 and a GF2 body just for the meantime waiting for the OM-D)
Reactive: Art filters? Why do Olympus bother with gimmicks like this - it just devalues the overall impression of an otherwise advanced camera; they belong only on kiddie-grade compacts.
And when will any manufacture create a camera where the user's greasy nose doesn't have to grind all over the rear screen? Don't humans have a nose sticking out of their face? My old DV camcorder had an extending viewfinder so the body rested on my cheek, which gave excellent stability. Reviewers make a lot of fuss about a camera's handling, buttons, and the grip - but never challenge the fundamental silliness of the flat-backed SLR shape.

I'm not at all a lover of these effects, but your post have made me look at the question in a different way: if you see the effect of the filter on the rear screen (see how I love them ... never used), well, I agree.Thanks.
Mtsuoka: what's the point of the battery grip? Anyway Olympus makes good looking consumer camera
Well, if your OM-10 was difficult to hold, at the time you hadn't to complain, because ALL cameras were made the same, starting from the start of XX Century, as they at first started as boxes, maybe rounded ones. And no one seemed to be bored, the today's need for a grip just started with the autofocus boatanchors.
sarkozy: See my pro lowlight photos (freehand) here:
where are the ORBS?
I see them. They aren't in the light bulbs, maybe undervolted tungsten lamps used just to make a light path. Can't you see?
For what I've seen these "orbs" take place in two circumstances:- long exposures of strong pointlike sources;- where is the strongest reflection in an area already reflecting.Maybe its an avalanche effect that happens in the form of a capacitive discharge on the sensor ... but here I'm guessing too much.
Hi,I think this is a nice interesting camera; about the ugly yellow, I find strange no one has noticed in the press release that (the camera is) "Available in black, white and Newson’s signature yellow colors", so it's a kind of Marc Newson's trademark. Let me look in the glass sphere what will be the next models:
K-02 - similar in design, whit a dial more on the top, slimmer to use the newly developed "micro-K" (just a guess ..) lenses, engineered for the smaller flange focal distance. K lens optional adapter. Optional tilting EVF to be mounted in place of the flash.
K-03 - same as above but FF (24x36mm sensor). Standard EVF.
Just wait. :-)
HiI guess the new "mirrorless, interchangeable lens camera" will be the APSC whith F-mount that Nikon has refused to make ...
