A step in the right direction.
The Yosemite Valley is one of the most overused pieces of national park in the US. They should ban automobiles and tour busses from the valley as the next step.
If you want an aerial view, go hike to Cloud's Rest or North Dome.
Marty4650: The new Olympus marketing strategy is now clear.
They are moving to the high end of each market segment. OM-Ds rather than Pens.... Stylus cameras rather than cheap P&S models. They are doing exactly what they need to do to survive in a mass market that is being eaten alive by smart phones.
I think they are making good chioices.
Now all they have to do is stop losing money.
Craig from Nevada: "As we're working towards finishing our full in-depth review of Ricoh's Pentax K-3, we've decided to publish pages of the review that are complete so far instead of making you wait."
The public has waited 6 months.
This is just throwing a something out there in an attempt to rescue DPReview's credibility rather that an honest effort to review a fine camera for the public to consider (read other reviews).
Don't send partial drafts out.
The pinhole will be reviewed next month, in one page installments. The serialization of review marches forward!

HomoSapiensWannaBe: Why no US pricing?
What does Sony have against Australia and Aussies?
The camera is downright attractive compare to some of the most recent Hasselblad efforts and priced in the same range.
Assume $999.99 in the US.
What nation will be stuck with the rejects from China?
JohnEwing: Aye, but what's in the envelope and where do you push it?
There won't be a mirror in the envelop.
The IBIS is awesome.
The glass is next challenge in terms of managing the size and quality tradeoff for the zoom lenses.
tjbates: Whichever way I look at it - the E-M10 looks like a marketing mistake in favour of the consumer. That doesn't happen very often.The E-M10 is marketed as an entry level OM series camera - however on paper and I'm sure in reality - this camera looks to perform (purely in terms of image quality) as well as the E-M1. That's pretty special for a camera about half the price of it's bigger brother.
Olympus needs to make more marketing mistakes like this.
qwertio: I have a feeling this will have a gold award with 81~82% rating.Something like this....Pros: - Excellent image quality, even at high ISO- 3-axis IBIS almost as good as 5-axis IBIS except for macro photography- Chromatic aberration corrected in-camera making JPEGs more usable- Impressive number of customizable controls- Bright, sharp electronic viewfinder- Reliable Wi-Fi connectivity for remote control and easy transfer of images to mobile device- Neat in-camera time lapse creation- Tilting OLED screen very good
Cons:- No weather sealing- Disappointing video quality (unless updated by firmware..)- Interface and controls can be overwhelming initially- In-camera Raw conversion interface is somewhat unintuitive
Sounds like every camera receives a participation trophy.
This is pretty good deal. When the price settles down a bit, it will even be a better deal.
I would say the E-P5 and any offspring have run their course and are rendered obsolete by this camera. The EPL and EPM still serve some purpose in the Oly line up.
OMD occupies a nice niche in the camera market. It will be interesting to see if Olympus can make a buck selling these cameras.
veroman: Save for the very best of the full frames, the M10 images look no better and no worse than the countless thousands of other images that have been posted on dpreview in the course of their most recent (past 2 to 3 years) camera reviews.
Seems to me that camera choices these days have much, much more to do with price point, ergonomics, features and intended uses than image quality or anything having to do with image quality. They're all very good. The OM-D E-M10 is good. A Leica is good. The Fuji X Trans cameras are good. My old Canon 40D is good. Take your pick.
The OP's comments is spot on.
Just about every camera trotted out gets a gold or silver award these days.
It is a pretty good day to go out and take some photo, regardless of what equipment you carry.
Sounds like "no" in Nikonese.
This looks like a very good value.
$699 (body only)? Not bad. Nothing new here, but the price.
It will be substantially cheaper by Christmas.
KingOfAtlantis: is the XF 18-55mm F2.8-4.0 Lens that comes with it good for landscapes or would it be better to get just the body and buy a different lens?
Stuck between this and the EM-1 for first camera. Definitely want to be outside in nature with whichever I choose.
Wait to see what Olympus rolls out tomorrow--E-M10.
