Caerolle: I actually just bought $2000 worth of m4/3 gear, almost all Olympus, so I am no hater. However, I find this kind of snide, sarcastic, sneering approach disgusting. I would rather Olympus promoted the positive things about their products (of which there are a lot), rather than insulting people who use something else. Not sure that is going to convince people to change. Like those Mac vs PC spots only made me see Apple as more arrogant and pretentious than I already did, and those Windows Phone and Windows tablet ads made me even less likely to buy those products, too.

Pointing out shortcomings in a competitor's products or comparing yours to theirs is one thing, making fun of people who use the competitor's products is different, at least to me. I guess if you don't understand that, there isn't much way I can explain it to you. To me, your analysis seems very cold, detached, and impassionate. I can't interact with life that way, personally.

Eugene232: Is X-T10 a new XE-2?

It is the result of an embarrassing incident between the X-T1 and the X-E2 after a night of heavy drinking. They don't like to talk about it.

Coliban: Really nice little camera, no question. For me, the competitors are, until now, sony a6000 and canon m3. The Canon m3 has the smallest dimension (therefor, the Fuji T, which is, for a second(third) camera with mobile usability.

It´s a pity, that there are, until now, no tests for the Canon M3, so i can only rely on assumptions and interpolations: IF the sensor of this camera (X-T10) is the same as the one used in the Fuji X-Pro1, THEN the IQ of the X-T10 is worse than the IQ of the sony a6000.

Then i saw in the internet a user review on a private side, which stated that the IQ of the Canon M3 is superior to the sony a6000, and that means (assumed that the statement is correct, but the M3 should have the same sensor as the Canon 750, and that IQ is superior) that the IQ of the Fuji X-T10 is much worse than the IQ of the Canon M3.

So, compared with those cameras, i thin i should prefer the Canon M3 (smaller dimensions) over the Fuji X-T10.

Is that correct?

If you dont care about no viewfinder, and a pathetic lens selection, then yes, or the ability to actually buy the camera if you are in the US (I am guessing you can buy it where you are, or you wouldnt be considering it), then sure. It does have a touchscreen though, which is great, and to me personally, the Canon control system if far better than the dogmatic retro one Fuji uses.

In reply to:

kewlguy: I could be wrong, but I think X-T10 produces better JPG than X-T1.

They mentioned somewhere in one of the like three articles that the JPEGs are saved in a less lossy verion, or with higher quality, one or the other, which both amount to the same thing.

Mirfak: General quesion for users. If for technical reasons you had to choose between IBIS and all of the 4K functionality, which would you pick?

Thanks, Impulses! I don't really care what they look like before, I am just glad there are fixed! I sometimes add more correction for keystoning or something after the lens profile is added, but mostly I am happy with the built-in profiles. I just did not know that it was automatic for the m4/3 files. It is nice that it does that, I have after all this time never gotten around to making it automatic for other files, and wind up having to select that manually every time, lol.

D200_4me: Cool, Panasonic makes an Olympus E-M1 now. Oh, wait....it only looks like the E-M1. Never mind :-)

I like the looks of the G7 far better than the E-M1. To me, that is one seriously ugly camera (though great in terms of function!).

@BarnET: Yes, I only shoot RAW, too. I didn't realized that it was automatic in Lr, but I have found that you cannot engage the profile in Lr, like I am used to with other systems. I just assumed that you had to make corrections manually, if you wanted them, if you weren't 1) using JPEGs and 2) using the same brand of camera and lens. I wondered if it was baked in the RAW somehow, as I have not see any bad things like I am used to seeing before I engage the lens profile in Lr.

Still learning about the m4/3 system, only have a few hundred images so far, always great to get some new info. Thanks! :)

Thanks, BarnET! It is sad that Olympus and Panasonic each consider the other's lenses 'third-party', though. I have a mix of lenses for my E-M10, and having those options is one big advantage of the system. I know it would be more work for Olympus to add correction for Panasonic lenses, and Panasonic to add DFD for Olympus lenses, but anything that makes the m4/3 system overall more appealing might actually sell more lenses than 'if you want all the features to work, you have to use our lenses'. Plus, maybe it would force them to compete on optical quality and price more so than getting full functioning, based on brand allegiance.

Yes, I think this would be far better for most people who buy entry-level dSLRs than an entry-level dSLR would be. But people in the US are so indoctrinated in 1) Canon and Nikon, 2) dSLRs, and 3) buying what is at WalMart or Best Buy, that they won't even know this camera exists. It is a shame all around, Panasonic loses out, and the buyer misses getting a better camera.

How does it fit in the hand?

F.

@Frank: There are no slots for the model's long nails.

The OM-D bodies are SLR-style, not rangefinder style.

Caerolle: Nice little camera! If it doesn't have the awful EVF from the GX7, I would be interested.

Nice to see the hands holding the product have nice nails this time, lol!

That would be awesome! Hopefully it isn't 16:9, either.

I rented both an E-M10 and a GX7 a few months ago, and like the GX7 better in every way except for the performance and placement of the EVF. Oh, and the eyecup was horrid for use with glasses. The G7 places it better for sure, and appears to have a better eyecup, at the least.

Nice! Now they let you bypass the shutter speed knob and just use a dial like modern cameras! Lots of other features to like about this little camera!

Marcelobtp: No complaints about the lens used, they just use the best 85 from each vendor. it would be interesting to see an update to a OTUS 85 for each vendor, the ones that are not native use an adaptor for it.

They would use this one, prolly available for everything, and they don't have to spend much money (DPR says Otuses are too expensive to use):

Good job, Canon, great job, indeed...

Yes, they are dropping a new version of the 50/1.8! Maybe you should reshoot the scene with that when it comes out. And there is that new 24...oh wait, EF-S. ;)
