Jon Stern: Strange how the press release text doesn't mention Micro Four Thirds. While followers of Olympus digital cameras and the digital Pens, in particular, would know this, it's almost as if they are trying to avoid talking about the sensor size.

I am just saying, that it would be cool if it were possible to stay away from the sensor discussion. Nobody wants to know about the cpu in the iPhone, because you just know the iPhone works great and will perform just fine ( or at least Apple has convinced you to believe that ). It would be great if Oly/Pana could sell camera's like that.

Apple does not talk specs... It talks about an experience, lifestyle and markets its products that way. It might be a good step if Oly went that way! To me, sensor size is not important... important is the camera experience and IQ... and let's be honest... for 99% of the shooters the m43 camera's have more then great IQ.

KonstantinosK: We've been shouting for years for a waterproof large sensor compact and the first firm to come out with one is... Leica? Oh, the irony. I just hope this will drive other manufacturers to make one with a more affordable price. APSC would be wonderful but a 1" sensor could be enough.

Nikon has a waterproof camera in their one series! A waterproof interchangable lens system camera.

Mike99999: I sold all my Olympus gear this year. The image quality is just not there, no matter what the hype says.

No problem to create wal filling prints from my Olympus gear. Done it with the Nikon D200, so no problem for the higher resolution Olympus cams as well

WestSeattleDan: Looks like the Nikon 1 series 32mm 1.2 lens at $800
is a way better deal than this 4/3 lens at $400.

?

Pat Cullinan Jr: Is the RX100 IV a mere selling-point horse?

Is it worth the $150 uplift?

MK3 probably just as boring... taking photographs (with any camera)... now that is exciting!

nerd2: So they just dissuaded people from buying their top camera+top lens combo which weighs MORE than equivalent DSLR setup. Awesome marketing :D

Good luck shooting your f5.6 at f2.8. Would be great if you provided us with these images.

Paul Petersen: Just marketing BS if a DSLR shooter wants to travel lighter just add one of the latest affordable Nikons or Canons, way lighter than what they show in the mocumentury. There are plenty of lighter lenses to uses and you still can use all their good big stuff.

Top glass m43 is a lot smaller then top 35mm glass, cheaper m43 glass is a lot smaller then cheaper 35mm glass... simple fact of life.

In reply to:

StefanD: About " the new 7-14mm wideangle zoom (on the left in this picture) is considerable smaller and lighter than full-frame equivalents":

Compared to the Canon 16-35 F4, it isn't that much lighter or smaller:
Weight: 534 g. vs 615 g.
Diameter: 79 mm. vs 82.6 mm.
Length: 106 mm. vs 112.8 mm.
(a 7-14 2.8 on m43 is comparable to a 14-28 5.6 on FF)

Although I would love to see lenses that are much lighter and smaller than my full lframe Canon lenses, I don't see it happen yet...

Try to shoot at f2.8 with your f4 ff lens... hmmm... you can't? Maybe because it is not equivalent.... Oh.... and the equivalent ff lens is... yep.... probably twice as large, heavy and pricey.

But hey... You don't wanna hear that. So... just have fun shooting at f2.8 with your f4 ff lenses.

It's equivalent is an f2.8 FF sister lens... not an f4...

pen araneae: I will give this top vote if it was in the challenge. The musical bench flanked by two French doors at least brings some cheer in this suitably dreary picture.

Thanks! I am glad I provided a worthy example.

In reply to:

pocoloco: A micro SD is a must... but Android does not support that anymore... yeah... you can plug in one, but apps cannot share data so images shot cannot be modified/written to the micro SD... as long as Google does not fix this... all Android phones are just phones.... nothing more... it becomes very cumbersome to use them for anything else....

Latest android disallows app to write data to microsd, except for private app folder. So, as example, I installed Vignette, but I cannot configure Vignette to write to a folder on micro SD of my choosing. So, it then writes to internal memory (if there is space). If I want to move the images, let'ssay I use ES explorer, mmm... it can't copy the images from internal memory to a folder of my choosing.... So stock camera app can write to micro sd... i browse the images as example with QuickPic... i want to delete one.... mmm.... QuickPic can't do that.. blocked by Google...

This is like common knowledge guys... alot of people are upset about it... Google just degraded our powerfull handsets to simple phones..
