Artistico: I see this has the proper hand grip I have been missing on my too retro-styled E-M5. I might upgrade just for the ergonomics of the grip, even if there are no image quality benefits, CA is easily sorted when shooting raw, I don't use legacy 4/3 lenses, and I wouldn't need 1/8000s very often - though the latter is something I also miss since moving from an old Canon 5D to micro four thirds. As I do like shooting wide open with my 45mm f/1.8, 1/8000s is useful.
I like how Olympus, unlike many other manufacturers, have kept the same battery type, making it cheaper to upgrade rather than having to invest in a new set, though I notice that the DPreview team flags it as something negative as they think they should have used the bigger hand grip for a bigger battery. If there was a new battery, I'd consider upgrading even less.
They have a new Power Battery Holder HLD-7 for E-M1 (http://www.getolympus.com/us/en/accessories/camera/power-battery-holder-hld-7-for-e-m1.html) that adds another battery and a 'proper' portrait grip with "two control dials and two function buttons for the same easy controls as when shooting from a horizontal position".Its $199 on Olympus' and Adorama's sites.
This would be money well spent...
dinoSnake: I clicked on choice #1, "Having to repeatedly pay to retain access", but in actuality I am concerned about all of the first four topics. Conveniently, they are even listed in the priority order of my concern - #1 down to #4 topics are #1down to #4 of my priority of concerns.
Please add "All of the above" to the poll and restart; I'm sure the statistics will skew to "All" pretty quickly.
The poll should really have a choice for 'All of the above', otherwise its just biased towards helping Adobe find the most objectionable aspect of the CC. Then they could eliminate *it* as their bargaining point to try and keep CC!Please put the 'All of the above' choice in, if you want a 'fair' poll.
I'm not worried about Wacom's 'Tablet' functionality, I am worried about the very same issue that Microsoft has so far seemed to overlook: a lack of memory to support an OS and Graphic applications.
I currently run LR 4.4 R1, PS CS6E, and Win Vista Ultra x64 with 12 GB of memory– and it is not quite enough!
It seems like a Tablet would have to have at least 8GB of memory and prefferably an option for 12GB – 18GB to really perform well when running an OS, Graphics, and [Productiviry applications]. (Less I/O to Storage will definitely *prolong Battery life* and *greatly increase performance*!)
With just a single SSD for storage supplimented by Memory Cards (SD/µSD), and External Drives (USB2/3 or Firewire)– it seems to me that the Microsoft Surface and Wacom device won't sell unless they have enough memory.
I'm watching the Notebook/Ultrabook/Tablet market closely, I have $1,000 to make a purchase, I like the Microsoft Surface, but it lacks memory and has a small SSD!
Another: 'Solution In Search of a Problem' [SSP or SiSoaP] (sic).
"Nothing new here, move along, these aren't the cameras you need".
Seriously, why are you trying to invent a catchy marketing name for this class/category of SSP or SiSoaP, are they paying you?
(Oh, that's right, Trivial Pursuit (the hardware version) is your occupation...)
I beleive that CS6's Adaptive Wide Angle feature does al/most everything that this product does-- I find it very powerful and easy to use.
However, the cooresponding feature in LR (4.2 RC 6  is latest version) Develop/Lens Corrections/Manual although quite handy, is of limited use since each control acts globally in a single plane. For minor corrections, it works okay...
'You cannot select individual objects/lines for alignment'
It appears to me that quite a few of these images are under-exposed and look pretty bad because of it. Not using exposure compensation and getting bad photos is the sign of a careless/hurried/ridged photographer-- using default/basic settings at-all-costs for the review [big mistake], is not the camera's fault when shooting in the 100-1600 ISO range. I certainly speak from experience-- I shoot with E-30 and E-510 Olympus cameras.(I've seen this same problem with many other DPR review images and it causes unecessary 'pseudo-noise' in the dark areas.)These images don't look they came from a camera worth what Sigma is asking for it!That, together with a rather slim selection of high-enough, quality lenses for this camera's sensor probably won't generate enough sales to recoup their investment!Its a shame, if it had a low enough price and better selection of lens I could be interested in the SD1.
