On DPReview launches GearShop news story (327 comments in total)
In reply to:

ozgoldman: The fact that DPR are essentially ignoring 70% of their clientèle does not make good business sense to me.
It clearly alienates and degrades the vast majority of those that visit this site.
Q. How do get off side with your readers? Do things like this all the time.
As global users of this site, we deserve better from DPR.

I agree with your desire to do something with the broader range of DPR users, but you have to start somewhere. First step and then expand.

"The truth is we don’t need much gear, only the minimum for what we do."

Phooey.

Everyone needs more gear.

On Olympus to axe V-series point-and-shoot cameras news story (133 comments in total)

They had to stop the bleeding. Other makers will follow their example. The definition of camera is very different and point and shoot is just redundant.

In reply to:

Craig from Nevada: The pricing of the E-M5 was really a pleasant surprise. A heck of deal.

The pricing of this camera had the opposite effect. I am disappointed

EM-5 was/is a good value.

Looks to be about the right size for me.
No retro EM-5 stuff either. Refreshing.

One less entry in what continues to be a market with too many cameras chasing too few buyers.

In reply to:

Catalin Stavaru: So Panasonic realized that purposefully building a large camera for the m43 format is stupid, when the whole purpose of m43 was to make smaller cameras with smaller lenses. On the wrong assumption that people think "larger is better" in the year 2013...

Now they want you to try the camera, to see that it's good. I'm sure it's great but almost any DSLR is good, but this is not what people wanted. They wanted m43 because they wanted smaller cameras.

What they should really do is to quickly build a GH5 that is as small as possible (maybe as small or even smaller than the GH2) while having all the internals, features and quality of the GH3.

This camera might be the right size to use with the 35-100mm lens.

My sense is that the recent announcement about earnings has set off a panic at Olympus. Losses are growing, not narrowing. In response to this news, I think the word is cut, cut and cut.

First, question, what parts of the imaging operation are losing money. I think the whole thing is. Point and shoot for sure. Micro--I think so as the losses have grown since OM-D was introduced.

I bet the meetings with upper management on how to achieve this have been pretty rough. Olympus would be stupid not to discuss all options, including DSLR production. Somehow this discussion got into the media. A leak of some sort, intentional or other wise. The leak got some traction.

All the recent talk of taking care of E-500 users, etc may have been sincere, but I don't think it counts this week. The money that is lost and the interest of the shareholders is what matters.

My point is that I really don't think Olympus knows what it is going to do at this point.

The words from an owner or general manager of a struggling professional sports team in the US that "the coach's job is secure" are the surest sign the coach is going to be fired and soon.

This article gives me the same feeling.
