to me fuji-customers have to wait two years to get their fuji-camera complete with things other Producers had alredy done long time ago... think!
Thomas Richter: Nice. But why a dedicated color/art dial and still no dedicated ISO dial? (Same applies to almost all cameras in the market; I just don't get it. Even PASM is less important to me. I mean; for that retro type of feeling I want focus on the essentials: shutter, aperture, ISO; visible, with imprinted numbers on the dials, not necessarily re-configurable; always at the same place; is it so hard?)Also, pricing it twice as much as the X-E2s might be a bit steep.
normaly the exposure dial becomes ISO functionality in M mode, or you can configurate a Funktion button
shigzeo: This looks nothing like a 1960's rangefinder. It looks like a re-thought Pen F, which was an SLR.
Pen F had a rotating shutter made of titanium from outer space development (and 200 other patents), the mirror keeps tiny with eyecup in the corner, so it really looks like a rangefimder and NOT like an SLR! So you can work with interchangebale bright lenses to Keep ISO low without getting bulky (like nowdays).
T3: What I find most interesting is that Sony is so new to the game, and yet they've chosen not to take a me-too approach. I think that can be one of the advantages of having a fresh set of eyes; you end up solving problems in a new and innovative way., and you're not bound by traditional thinking.
with a little help by their joint-venture-Partner, since Oly incorporated the camera into medical bussines
Like Fuji-celluloid the sensors always look reddish/magenta to me, for light-skinned people I prefer Kodak-colours as you can find nowdays in Nikon and Olympus cameras. (Even the new Leica SL delivers very nice Colours.)
jkokich: Forgive what may sound like a stupid question (there are those), but why is there shutter sound, at all? (Serious question, even if stupid).
because of the shuttersound
MPA1: Useless high ISO in RAW.
take a IBIS-camera and keep ISO low
Beat Traveller: Meh. I've tried to use MIT's MOOC stuff before, from the neuroscience courses, and I found it to be massively over-hyped. It's basically just the slides, lecture notes and references from each course: material that costs them nothing extra to produce because they put it up for the students anyway.
Without more detailed explanations it's useless as a learning tool. You might as well borrow a textbook from a public library.
naththo: My Canon Powershot Pro1 can do a lot better colours than that!
try Nikon A
alexisgreat: Why dont manufacturers make these cameras with 1/1.8" sensors? The camera would be only slightly larger and it would have much less noise. If Fuji can make a 1000mm camera with a 1/2" sensor, surely Olympus can make a 600mm camera with a 1/1.8" sensor or even a 1/1.7" sensor. Heck, Fuji also makes a 630mm camera with a 2/3" sensor!
take a look at Stylus 1
alexisgreat: The Image Quality would be a lot better if the sensor was 2/3" and resolution was around 8 MP
take a look at XZ 2
alexisgreat: Basically give this camera the Olympus C-8080 sensor (2/3" 8 MP) or C-7070 (1/1.8" 7 MP), both CCD, I hate CMOS....... and a lens to fit either of those sensors, and we're good to go ;-) wouldn't mind the feature set of those cameras either- it's sad that cameras from 10 years ago are a lot more advanced than the ones today.
compare a photo with ISO800, this camera has 600mm!
Handling the Sensorreadout selectiv in one single shot is already implemented in HDR-Bulb in E-M10 (first time). This Technology was used even in Shaddow-Compensation bevor and will be used for more functions in the future (describt in the Patent). Even ISO-Bracketing already exist.
dark goob: WANT!!
The slow, loud focusing speed of the existing 20 is its only real drawback. I'll probably keep it and use the other one on dual GH3's to do 3D video.
Where have You red "AF is unchanged"?AF has changed! Cause of new "in lens" instead "frontfocus" design.
Infared: The thing I just can't figure out is WHY the champagne color of the Olympus 17mm lens perfectly compliments my Austin-Martin Silver Panasonic GX1 camera body...but matches nothing Olympus??? :-)
have a look at P3 or PL5 in silver ;)
Airless: Consumer level DSLRs don't have any advantage over mirrorless at the same price point, they have some differences sure like optical finders but to call that an "advantage" is fanboyish to the extreme, there are just as many disadvantages with an optical finder and generally the only people who prefer optical are some of those who were already used to it before trying EVF.
NEX, EOS M, and Nikon 1 have PDAF, and they all let you use DSLR lenses with autofocus via an adapter, M4/3 has a pretty deep native lens selection too, and referring to "the option of full-frame" is irrelevant because that is a totally different price level and different type of buyer. Nobody's debating between a NEX-6 or a D800.
@kevindaryour post is complete inaccurate as EOS-M dont match NEX6 speed nor do D3100, D3200 or 1100D with Kit-Lens:they are blown away by Lumix, PEN or NEX esp. while useing the display or videofor sport etc. just use burst mode with 8 pics/secondand.. nearly all good DSLR prime-lenses are made for FF actually using only 1/2diameter if you print 4:3
Chaitanya S: Pen lite looks more like Pen(non lite) series cameras from previous generation.
As Oly-Manager stated in a interview: there will be a PEN with Viewfinder integrated (it`s not exclusive for OM): I think they will save (tradationally) the Best for the JapanTradeShow.
Knight Palm: Great feature set of this new Samsung camera. If I remember correctly, Samsung recently started with compressed RAW, previously raw was uncompressed and made the camera slow in buffering/handling.
Good to see the progress with BSI-CMOS, this time reaching 1/1.7" size. Previous record was held by Fujifilm at 1/2" size. But how much better will BSI-CMOS in Samsung EX2F be compared to Canon's traditional FSI-CMOS in S100?
Interesting test comparison ahead to watch the sensor technology progress!
X10 has 2/3" means 1/1,5" Sensor means bigger than EX2
but size isn`t all...
The Silver Fox: I'm sold on the OM-D and will buy one next month. While I plan to invest in several of the primes, I will also get an Oly zoom lens for general purpose shooting. But I'm unsure which kit lens to go with. Any suggestions?
I understand that the 12-50mm 1:3.5-6.3 is weather-sealed, which is a great thing to have for travel. However, both the 14-150mm 1:4-5.6 and the 40-150mm 1:4-5.6 R are equally compact, with 3 times the zoom capability. Coming from SLR's, I'm new to m4/3, so I'm free to invest as needed. Though I've been taking pictures since a wee lad, I'm a relative newcomer to serious photography, and an out-and-out newcomer when it comes to m4/3. So, any help would be appreciated.
or just wait for pany f2,8er zooms
Ace Disgrace: I want to invest and get the NEX-7 but this review have made me think again. In controlled lighting the Olympus wins. How does this MFT OMD EM5 compare with APSC NEX-7 in real world shooting?Thanks in advance. Congratulations to OLY for a job well done.
very good idea: steve huff photo will help you
