This is great, better than mine at 19th place.
I love this shot, can almost see the emotion.
shaocaholica: I guess the only sensor option is FT right?
Yes, unless Olympus has the money to produce a new lens range and the average punter has the money to buy them.
Jogger: aside from the name, its really stretching it to say that its based on the OM series
Jogger, You are correct, if it has no similarities with an OM series camera. We'll have to wait and see.
Anastigmat: Surprise! Olympus finally figured that it needs to break the straightjacket it has imposed on itself when it chose the 4/3 format. That small sensor puts an upper limit on pixel size and number, so it must be abandoned if Olympus were to stay competitive with Sony and Pentax, instead of scraping the bottom of the marketing barrel for sales. More competition is always welcome. Let's hope that the new entry will finally result in so much more competition in the crowded APS-C sensor market that it will force manufacturers to bring out more low end, affordable full frame models. The days of full frames selling for less than $2,000 may be near.
To Anastigmat. Sorry, which text were you reading?
Late response; no alert to new messages. This was all in-camera, the defocus mode; this photo was posted on the Sony forum to show the 'ability' of this mode.
PetarM: I paid Sony NEX-3 with 16 mm pancake and flash 300 eur.
NEX is beating Oly at price...and IQ more and more. Oly products are a bit overpriced, thats why i bougth NEX instead of PEN.
So how much would all that have cost new when it was just released?
This is really beautiful, a wonderful capture.
Oh dear, nice machine if was priced about 500 bucks cheaper.
Very creative, keep it up.
Not a stellar performance, but thanks to everybody who didn't penalise me for entering a photo of an aspect of La DÃ©fense. Thanks again, all the best, Jon.
