They should cut it down the megapixels to HDTV res . Increase the size of the photosites spend time on trying to boost the ISO and still give a good photograph. If they can crank up the ISO and still get good quality for a multi-purpose.

It does not looking like a photograph, it looks like a water-colour. It looks like something from Tony Hart's gallery...Disqualify

On Olympus OM-D E-M1 Review preview (2064 comments in total)
In reply to:

Biowizard: As an E-1 user of around 10 years' standing, and having shot many thousands of images on its "mere" 5Mp sensor, I have been waiting patiently for the "right" successor. It wasn't the E-3. Nor the E-5, and I have been very happy hanging onto the E-1. Never had even one single dust speck on an image, so have never needed to clean the sensor. Only ever had one stuck pixel, and the in-camera pixel mapping sorted that out within a few seconds. I love everything about the E-1, though miss the option a higher pixel count, and newer features like wireless flash, WiFi, etc.

Sadly for me, the OM-D E-M1 is NOT the replacement I've been waiting for. I wanted full-size 4/3, with optical viewfinder. Doubtless I will motor on for a while with my beloved E-1, but sorry Olympus, my NEXT camera is going to be Nikon or Canon :-(

[Edited to correct a couple of typos]

never had an E1. OM-2n (dad's) a few compacts then E-500. Hear a lot about the E-1 ergonomics...

SushiEater: Focus issues? How about testing OEM lens in the same under less-than-ideal conditions? Are you kidding? White horse "miles" away with no contrast to focus at all at F1.4, seriously?
How about testing on Nikon instead of Canon? There are so many variables here that it is hard to believe this review.

Just use a split-prism DOH! This way you know exactly what you're focussing on. AF is over-rated.

Michael Jardine: Looks great! But my entire reason for adding M43 to my stable is portability. I can't put my D800 into my jacket pocket. I can with my Pen(s), plus a lens or two. So the Pen lives with me, the D800 lives in the backpack. The EM1 would live in the backpack.

Under 1kg for getting ready to first dance is what you need. Imagine hand holding for over 12 hours...

I like the E-M1 grip. I'm more concerned about handling and ergonomics than a style statement. It's the right size and with lens and battery under 1kg - the right weight. IQ should be fine for 8x10 and A3...Time for the OM-D lite to make an appearance...

whawha: Its a beautiful camera, but it competes in price with full frame SLRs and judging by the samples the high ISO quality is not even close.
Having said that, if high ISO are not your priority this could make a perfect travel camera - small, light and weatherproof.

If you're into high iso then 35mm and low MP count is better. Horses for courses...All round system 4/3 is good. Good zooms, enough DOF control for subject isolation, in three zoom lens you can cover 14-400mm...

NikonScavenger: I have a problem paying that kind of change for what is still an m4/3 sensor.

Will we eventually see m4/3 gear approaching that of an FF camera like the D600 or 6D, because we're very close... and it's not even fair to compare the two.

MF format sensors are x4 bigger than 35mm. 35mm is only x2 bigger than 4/3...

PenGun: Makes no sense to me. The Fuji X cameras will just murder it in almost every way and cost less.

If you want quality large format (50x60cm film) only way to go. Lens quality to boot. Forget the rest be the best. Trust one see one of those prints you know what quality is...

FocusBogus: OM-D E-M1 sounds messy. Why not simply OM-D2? And then cheaper models OM-D20, OM-D200...

PEN is a weird choice for a camera name... it sounds like what I have in my pants.

It's history OM-1 was originally called M-1. Leica objected and Oly changed the OM-1. If you have the one with M-1 it's a collectors item now. OM-D E-M1 just right.

Haider: Has to top Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 DC HSM Lens £650...When the Oly f2 Zooms came out on 4/3rds they were hot stuff...

Plus the sensor size is gonna play havoc with the IQ. Vignetting, corner sharpness , and all the other compromises start coming. APS would be interesting but in about three zooms you have coverage and quality.

Direct link | Posted on Sep 10, 2013 at 16:13 UTC

Hmmm m4/3rds tend to be software corrected lens. Will it be up to f2.8-3.5 11-22mm, 14-54mm, 50-200mm Zuiko Digital. In three lens you've got it covered in terms of quality and coverage chuck in Pany Leica 25mm f1.4... 12-60mm SWD distortion at 12mm put me off...

That'll be deal while I'm saving up for my large format camera 20x24 inch. Yep that's no typo there 20x24 inch film and yep that's more than 50cm on one side. Load the film up lads. On a serious note the Zuiko and the Sigma are round the 800g mark it will interesting to see how much 35mm version weighs in at...

abolit66: 2.8 is not fast enough for 4/3 format. it's 24-80 f 5.6 equivalent on FF

AlpCns2: Sigma is certainly on a roll. Always quite innovative, but recently they have introduced a whole range of absolutely stellar optics. Instead of marketing fluff this is real, tangible progress and improvement that we all will benefit from, as it forces the competition to improve as well. And at these prices it is nothing short of a stunning achievement.

Well done Sigma! I already own several very good Sigma lenses, but I am certainly going to buy one of these!

Would be too big and heavy. Would also have to start 14mm. I think the best you can do is use the Zuiko 14-35 f2 but it is a big lens on an m4/3 camera
