On Olympus OM-D E-M10 Review preview (332 comments in total)

So... 10 years ago when the first 4/3 camera came out, no one complained about the lack of bokeh. The Olympus E-1.

I can guarantee that all the "no bokeh, no buy" spokes people never knew this and will refuse to recognise or accept that it's the SAME SIZE (regarding sensor) as this.

And every other m4/3 camera.

BBking83: I know! How ridiculous!! Check out this photo: http://i1266.photobucket.com/albums/jj524/picrumors/picrumors001/Bildschirmfoto2014-01-07um121412_zpsc083a830.png

Can you believe that the 5th skin pore on her nose is still slightly in focus!?!?! I mean, look at her cheeks and eyes! They could be WAY more blurred if you used a FF camera!

This lens is JUNK!

EDIT: Because a whole lot of people will argue against it, it's from here: http://www.quesabesde.com/noticias/leica-nocticron-42-5mm-f1-2-analisis-fotos_11255

And it has a lot more to do with how blurry they become. The photo I posted was to demonstrate the results, but it's not a good photo because more than half the face is out of focus...

How about proper grammar?

'I would insult all of the critic's intelligence here, but... I can't think of anything dumb enough to say.'

b534202: I would like to see Olympus tackle this FL & aperture and see what they can come up with w/o OIS.

They haven't try to sell one MFT lens for more than a $1000, unlike Pany.

"They haven't try to sell one MFT lens for more than a $1000, unlike Pany."

You mean, like the 45mm f/1.8?? That is retail for about $400?

Oh... You HAVE to have a f/1.2.

I will admit, though. f/1.8 is Olympus' forte.

jeffharris: For $1600, I guess I'll be sticking with my Voigtländer 42.5mm f0.95 for $999.

*clears throat*

Excuse me but did you just sensibly compare this lens to one of the same format and focal length? AND when both stopped down to f/2.0, might yield similar results and saying that it's a third of the price?! HOW DARE YOU!!!

To be honest, though, I think the Voigtlander will have less contrast in colours than the Panasonic/Leica but we are yet to see any comparisons. :)

In reply to:

BBking83: That image looks like the aperture is f/3.5-5.6 (hard to tell...) at but a quick google search yields a f/2.0-2.8 aperture (which is pretty good!).

What lens did you test and what lens is in this image?

http://www.dpreview.com/previews/samsung-nx30/images/front.jpg

My link (from here: http://www.dpreview.com/previews/samsung-nx30) is NOT the 18-55mm, hence why I asked.

But that's interesting if there are two types of the 16-50mm.

Alejandro del Pielago: What???

The OM-D EM-1 owns a very fast AF, and now the new firmware means:

• Improved AF operation
• Image stabilisation in sports, children mode and C-AF has been improved

It sounds amazing!!!! I would like a review about how deep are the changes with this new firmware...

I think the reduction of noise for long exposures is the main one.

Does Dan Marchant go to DPR? http://danmarchant.com/

He doesn't quite seem to get it...

[Dan said:

“Aperture – The opening of a lens, identified by a number that gets larger as it gets smaller.”
{Sigh} Your mathematics teacher must be hanging their head in shame that you failed to grasp the basic fact that f/2.8 is a larger number than f/8 etc and that the aperture number therefore gets larger as the aperture gets larger. No wonder so many newbies get confused when people perpetuate this simple mistake.]

Very nice! And yes, thanks for sharing. :)

He can't have used a FF camera. The DoF is too wide!! ARGH!!

NOT ENUFF BOKEH!!!

Adrian Tung: I've seen this camera up close, it is really big and bulky for an MILC-Android hybrid.

My personal opinion, not that anyone cares, would be:
1) should have been in NX300 form factor with optional EVF attachment
2) should have provided dual memory card slots -- one for Android usage (apps, music, documents, etc) and one for frequent removal and swapping (i.e. captured RAW photos)
3) offer cellular communication (GSM, etc)*

* more of a curio than a serious suggestion... but it would be neat to be the first, no?

"3) Cellular data and cellular communication aren't the same thing."

Okaay... Mind explaining?

By all means, if you know more than Wiki, could you update this page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cellular_data_communication_protocol ??

If you mean, you want to make phone calls, just say it. You can with the SAMSUNG S4Zoom.

1) This has a built in EVF. Why do you want removable EVF so you can't use it with external flash (or built in flash) at the same time?

2) It has 16G on internal memory.

3) It does have GSM. Micro SD and SIM card slot.

I found the user interface so awkward and non-photographer friendly.

There is the case of the i-Fn lenses but if you don't have one of those (like the nice 30mm f2), you can't even change the aperture with the dial when looking through the EVF... O_O

On Olympus OM-D E-M1 Review preview (2065 comments in total)
In reply to:

Allen Yang: I prefer Nikon D7100 to this!

I guess you don't know Olympus' history then, do you George. Like the OM film cameras. And the D couldn't possibly stand for... Wait for it. DIGITAL!!

As for E-M1. Olympus have always used E for their SLRs, so M is for Micro (mirrorless). 1, well I'm sure you can cope with that.

Direct link | Posted on Oct 29, 2013 at 12:49 UTC

Even the "FF lovers" aren't happy with this.

Well, it is the first of it's kind. But it seems that no matter WHAT is released, a big baulky DSLR will always be better. Even if there was a medium format mirrorless camera, it seems that "Micro" (due to m4/3) is attached to mirrorless and means it's smaller.

Ah well, keep shooting with whatever you've got. Mirrorless is still young.

It's amazing how articles like these get no traction of conversation about gear and the "FF" war.

Really nice photos in there, regardless of what they used and how they used it. They just took photos.

Akkers2012: Check out the review of the lens on Ming Thein. Pretty amazing!

"I would have prefered if they have made a micro 4/3 version of the classic Zuiko 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0. That was and still is one of the best 4/3 lens made so far."

I totally disagree. That's what the new E-M1 is for. The 4/3s glass!!

I'm really happy with the m4/3 road map. I'm definitely picking up the 12-40 and the 40-150 later down the track.
