Papi61: So, the "generation selfie" will now have selfie "stamps" all over their body. Just when you thought nothing could top their narcissism...

Is "Generation selfie" turning into "stamped" generation ?

Cane: Another m43 with that 16 mp sensor. Innovative.

16 MP isn't too much for taking selfies of spotty teenagers ?
Hopefully there is this welcome "Beauty Face" art filter...

JoePhoto: These are terrible images ... (not the cameras fault).

Where they shot by a 2-year old ???

"Lots of useless coastline"
When in vacations, I feel, too, a bit of nostalgia when I see long coastlines without a single piece of concrete... And breathing sea air rather than exhaust gas just makes me sick...;-)

Pat Cullinan Jr: (Warning. This is a vinegary post.)

It's hard to pronounce on IQ without a more systematic roster of images. Even though the gallery is real-world, one could take images that assist more positively in assessing IQ.

There. That wasn't so bad. Does one agree?

I do. In low light, tester should stay at low ISO and use a tripod instead of high ISO and/or IS to avoid blur caused by NR or potential shake. And take more wide open shots...

The same in bright sun at low ISO would have been more useful to check corner/border IQ at wide angle wide open...

In reply to:

Rmano: this is a nice shot!

Yes, but not quite sharp. Too slow shutter speed or the IS did not work as expected ?

I totally agree. Maybe the next companion of my E-PL5.

ThatCamFan: "Hey we screwed up by making a bad camera, so we made adapters to pretend we made a better one."

Making a good and rather fast 28-300mm zoom lens, which is certainly enough for most users of this camera, is certainly a better design choice than making a crappy 22.4-510mm zoom lens...

Alexander Vienna: were is Leica???

Flicker is for the masses and Leica cameras are not for the masses. This could be an explanation...

In reply to:

marc petzold: If the rumors are true, then Sony would someday (perhaps in 2015) release a NEX-5 Style Fullframe DSLM, maybe named A5...with a cheap Kitlens together for as low as 799 EUR...i'd think that would go away like hotcakes.

Sony made this patent for a FF sensor inside a NEX-5 body sort-of back in 2013, as sonyalpharumors wrote back then in time already.

http://www.sonyalpharumors.com/sr2-first-rumor-about-a-super-cheap-ff-e-mount-camera-costs-799-euro-with-lens/

I think many ppl could live without an EVF, and a FF DSLM for that price including a decent Kitlens could be really bring the masses to Fullframe cameras, at least from Sony...if it would really being released for around 800 EUR only...nobody would buy a Alpha 5x00/6000 series APS-C DSLM then anymore, mostly.

But like i said into a previous post, each sensor size does have it's right to be on the market, different sensors for diff. needs & different cameras, it's alright.

I would not buy an FF ILC without E(O)VF. Using a lens of 200mm or more with extended arms is just nonsense considering the increased bulk and size versus APS-C or M4/3...

Obviously, your camera is not a 900g body attached to a 1.5kg lens...

stevo23: Hmmm. Smart idea - 1" is the new compact and I see no more reason to make 2/3 or 1.7 sensors. As for it's performance, that's another question.

But this kind of makes one question the efforts of Fuji with their X30 series tiny sensor cameras. I think they are becoming obsolete already from a marketing standpoint. Take that excellent performance and put it into a 1" sensor compact and you've really got something Fuji...

A bargain ? I bought my XZ-2, new, 250 euros. That was a bargain !

I live in France. Price here, including VAT, is 500 euros, about $620...

"I don't think enough people want them to justify their existence much longer."
For sure, 1/1.7" cameras with small range and slow zoom have no future. But unlike you, I think there is still a market for cameras like the DMC-LF1 or Stylus 1... I would like to buy a Stylus 1, but price is still higher than a entry level DSLR. Is it a sign that there are many people who want it ? ;-)

Because smartphone do not have 28-300mm equivalent F2.8 zoom lenses...

"You're already at 1" and significantly smaller components."

- Everything that helps making a 1" sensor camera smaller, helps making a 1/1.7" cameras even smaller.
- Sensor performance still improves over years for the same size, too. In other words, if you are happy with the performance of a 1" sensor today, you may be happy with a 1/1.7" sensor tomorrow... I personaly like what my XZ-2 produces most of the time, given my type of photography, although I also own m4/3 and APS-C cameras for special cases... But I prefer to use the XZ-2 for its smaller size.
- There will always be people favoring small, trully pocketable size over performance. The Panasonic DMC-LF1 is a trully pocketable 1/1.7" sensor camera, unfortunately it does not reach the IQ of the XZ-2 and Stylus 1. So I keep my XZ-2...

For the three reasons above, I think we will see 1/1.7" sensors for a while...

What do you mean ? Making a 1" sensor camera with a shorter zoom range to make it as small than the Stylus 1, then use "digital zoom" to get the same magnification ?

One good reason to make 1/1.7" sensors is the Olympus Stylus 1 camera. No hope to make such a "small" camera (although not pocketable) featuring a 28-300mm-equivalent zoom lens with constant F1:2.8 aperture and a 1" sensor...
