SHood: "Both new lenses are scheduled to be released from 2015 onwards."
I am a little concerned that we may not see one or both of these lenses until 2016.
Yeah I agree, we probably won't have them in our hands before 2016. Probably they will be released in late 2015 and then will ship rather slowly the first few months.We will see.More time to save some money ^^
xpanded: Now that just freed one of the function buttons. Thank you VERY much Olympus.
Another request for focus peaking please :-)
Yeah right :), really cool. Thanks Olympus!
About the focus peaking: Would be great, but I guess it's naive to hope for it. It's a way to important feature. They'll save this as a "must buy" argument for the successor of the E-M5, I'm sure about that.
Thorgrem: Another price for Olympus. 3 in a row on DPR. Nice to see that the smaller company's also get a change.
I guess you mean "chance", not "change" :)
mrmiguel: I guess we know what the next OM-D camera will have! If the next gen OM-D has the same specs, I might be tempted to upgrade just for the Flash Sync and Shutter Speed improvements. The WiFi would take care of the family portrait sessions (although a $20 remote shutter release could do the job, too :) )
Yep I thought the same.However I hope the next OM-D will not just have these features but also a new sensor with better High ISO performance.
Sergey Borachev: The only problem in an otherwise perfect little camera is the lack of a built-in EVF.
Well maybe it simply does not fit in there ^^Get the OM-D, it offers exactly what you ask for.
NZ Scott: If this had weather sealing and a built-in EVF I would buy it immediately.
Of course, the OM-D E-M5 has those features, but I don't like the way that camera handles.
What do you not like about how the OM-D handles?
Did you already test the E-P5? How do you know it handles different from the OM-D?I guess it will be quite similar... besides the fact that the E-P5 has probably less controls than the OM-D.
"How do you justify the price increase to photographers?
Last year we actually cut the price of Lightroom in half in order to open it up to a broader market of photographers."
The question was about creative cloud or photoshop. Shame on dpreview for not calling him on this non sequitur
I agree, this "Q & A" is a joke! It's just even more marketing blahblah
kcccc: Why nobody here mentions inclusion of anti-blur function, which has attracted lots of rumors in PS, in LR5? That alone is worth the upgrade.
You mean the new Photoshop Filter "shake reduction"?As far as I know, that is only included in the upcomming Photoshop CC.What makes you think it is also included in Lightroom? Did you test? Is it there? I don't have the beta... so I don't know. But I thought that it's a PS only feature.Or do you have other information? Does anyone have?
Edymagno: Adobe's new brilliant idea is based on the premise that everybody has a fast non-intermitent internet connection 24/7/365. That is only truth if you live in a major city. What happens if you live in a rural place or if you need to work while in location in some far away land? Will I need to carry a satellite dish along my tripod, cameras and lenses?
Adobe CC runs for 30 days without internet connection
Simon Zeev: I have the E-PL2 with the VF-2 EVF. I love the combo but I would prefer the EVF built in the camera. Why they don't do it?I really don't need a WiFi (but maybe someone need)
Well ianp5a that "lump" also contains the electronics of the 5 axis image stabiliser as far as I know. It's not just because of the built in EVF.
Earthlight: No harnessing the powers of graphics cards? That is a pity. What about support for 10-bit displays?
It would also be nice to create panoramas in LR.
@Stu 5: You maybe don't understand what Earthlight was asking for. He asks to use the power of modern GPUs. (More) RAM is doing something COMPLETELY different.
I also don't see any use of the voting system. At least not as long as it is not transparent. There are some trolls in the forums who vote down everything they don't like. Some people just show some pictures and ask for C&C... and all they get is a bunch of "thumps down". That's just completely useless."thumps up" and "complain" are ok. But "thumps down" is of no use at all. It's just a tool for trolls to vote down whatever they hate or disagree with.
Timmbits: I don't care! Korea has decided to start hunting whales, and I am participating in the international boycott of all Korean products!
Well that's not really Samsungs fault. However, I agree that Korean products should be boycotted for this ridiculous step into whale hunting.
René van Elst: I own the OM-D and the Panasonic 20 mm. Great results - at 1600 ISO there is no problem at all.
Agree with you René, same here.
Randy Benter: There is no mention of fixing the 20mm lens issue. That is disappointing. I won’t buy this camera if it doesn’t work with my favorite m4/3 lens.
What "issue" are you talking about?I have the OM-D and the 20mm and it's absolutely FINE!
This whole "banding" thing is way exaggerated, I NEVER had it, and when it happends, it does on ISO 6400 or higher.Olympus will fix that soon as they promised. So I really don't see any reason why you should not buy this great combo.
Louis_Dobson: There are some seriously sad, paranoid and xenophobic people here (the comments about Canon using "Chinese" parts are especially stupid and offensive).
I wouldn't touch this camera with a bargepole because of the sensor. A chemical reaction in the handgrip producing zinc, bis? Who cares! There are probably idiots out their taking that for their health!
Really, you cannot make anything any more, the world has gone mad.
Well but unfortunately there ARE a lot of toxic products from China, sometimes even Cloth!Sure, most of the time it's noticed before it ships to the resellers all over the world, but sometimes it's not and needs to be recalled when in stores or already sold.
In this case here, it's definitely not dangerous and most people are for sure not allergic to this anyway. But some are. Like me for example. So I'm glad Canon is honest about it.
Some people might be xenophobic but low quality and sometimes even toxic goods from China (and other "cheap" countries) are an issue that needs to be addressed.Also for the safety of the workers there.

I don't get the whining about the price.Sure, the additional content should better be included. Sure, a PDF is maybe not the best way to do it.
BUT: What costs is the time necessary to CREATE an WRITE the content. To think about how to structure the tutorial, to write it, take the screenshots, read through it again and again to make sure everything is clear, etc, etc.
Furthermore, they have some information on their site for free. Creating that content needs time too. Time nobody pays for, but they still have to pay their bills.
If you think the price is too low: Fine, don't buy it, but stop complaining.Or even better: Go on and write stuff like this on your own and see if it's really that easily done.
