Gesture: I think back to late in the film era when the Contax G was launched. It was an expensive, beautifully designed, real camera with fantastic lenses. It was a luxury item, but one of value and good taste and for a time there was quite a cachet to it with Hollywood folks, etc. walking around with them. Many celebrities in the film era were ardent photographers and rolled out their Leicas, Nikon RF, Rollefilex, etc. because they wanted the best, not the busiest.

I agree with mbpm photography is an art that is expressed by the individual user not the equipment.

In reply to:

David Burren: The most interesting news (for me) from Olympus is the new 15mm/8 lens. But no mention of it here? What gives?

As a fixed-aperture manual-(2-step)-focus lens it should even work on Pany bodies (although the lack of in-body stabilisation might be a drawback at f/8). At the suggested price it's almost a no-brainer: a slightly expensive lens cap that doubles as a super-cheap 30mm-e walkaround lens. It'll be interesting to hear more about it over time.

But not even a mention? Had me double-checking that I wasn't imagining it. :)

i hope the quality is better than the holga

It seems the joint venture of panasonic and olympus have supplied regular innovating products which is greatly appreciated.

Edmond Leung: I think this is the right time for Olympus and Panasonic to think about FF cameras.
In the long run, there is no way for 4/3 to compete with FF cameras.

Olympus/Panasonic will stick with its bread and butter. Nikon,Canon, and Sony can run the tables with full format.

In reply to:

Tape5: It is great to see companies crawling over each other for the consumer money. Canon probably planning a MEGApixel, Sony is kicking nice and hard, Faveon is rapidly evolving, Lenses are getting better on P&S and P&S are pushing low end DSLRs, Leica is blowing its own nerdy horn, medium formats are getting cheaper, camera phones are getting better, Social and other apps are coming in, Instagram etc etc.

It is so much fun not to buy anything at all these days. By the time you pull your credit card out, you can bet a better camera has come out already.

I total agree with your statement.

Yiotis: I stopped wasting my time trying to understand their so called new technology(This go for every manufacturer). Do you even realize with what kind of info you are bombarding us?

I want pictures not blah blah.

I agree with waitformee post the advanatge of understanding the function sensor gives the user the slight knowledge regardless of final output.

On Olympus Working on New Body for 'Pro' Four Thirds Lenses news story (266 comments in total)
In reply to:

mapgraphs: The story of the comments sections:

"Example: 14-35 f/2 ($2300, 2lbs) vs Canon 24-105 f/4 ($950, 1.5lbs); 35-100 f/2 ($2500, 3.6 lbs) vs Canon 70-200 f/4 IS ($1200, 1.7 lbs)."

Lets compare an f2 lens to an f4 lens and claim parity of value.

Everyone who uses SHG or HG glass and undersands what it is, raise your hands.

Edge to Edge sharpness should only be the difference.

I am guessing olympus will make a micro 4/3rd camera that uses both 4/3rd and mirco 4/3rd lens, it wil mostly likely be the OM-D replacement or the new section for the system only time will tell.

In reply to:

absentaneous: I keep wanting to buy one of these EXR large zoom cameras from fuji since the F70EXR because on paper they always look so good. but after seeing their image quality I always had to say, no, thank you. maybe this time it will be different. my super zoom compact is getting a bit older already so time to replace it.

I agree in general it seems the Fujifilm f70exr,f100fd, and f200exr used the exr sensor correctly. I have a f70exr as well it is a great camera.

Seems promising unfortunately the lens is designed for crop sensors but great price with a very interesting silent AF motor.

The panasonic GH line was deisgned for video and previous models have been great. While the G line is panasonic entry level design and entry level specs as well.The GH line is also pansonic top of the line the sensor is compared to an ASP-C sensor as well. It follows G,GF,GX, and finally GH.

Item would work well with better marketing the lytro concept should work well for security systems and ac drones. Only time will tell.

I agree with poster T3 i have both a superzoom (fujifilm hs-10) and a olympus DSLR a general purpose lens is always welcome addition.
