Ergo607: Well, it had already become clear to me that olympus doesn't do customer's binding so I did not have to expect any firmware update for the E-M5, which is why I changed to Fuji X. Still there should have been an update for E-M5 (and other OM-D's and PEN's) with some of the features introduced for the firmware for the E-M1 (the tethered shooting, improved EVF lag.)

However what is loooooooong due is an adaptable super control panel and more streamlined menu's. Guess Olympus thinks that it's fine as it is. Good for them. Glad I got rid of the inexplicable menu's and fiddly buttons. The X-Pro has it quirks too, mind you, but they are minor (and at least Fujifilm listens to its customer base.) Good for me...

Yeah, no way to change that it seems. Sorry.

JBurnett: Yay, EVF! I know young'uns often don't care, but we who need reading glasses to properly see the LCD applaud this addition.

Olymore, my night vision is already down the drain. Presyopia can't be far behind!

JBurnett,
Thanks for the info. I had no idea a small EVF could actually work better than a rear LCD for the reasons you mentioned. I knew about trying to see a screen in direct sunlight, but didn't know that vision problems could be better accommodated with an EVF.

tbcass: $1800 for APS? Way overpriced.

People are so hung up on sensor size it's ridiculous. If I need fast AF and frame rate I'm grabbing this camera before any FF at this price or less.

A camera isn't a sensor in a box. Features matter, and no FF delivers similar features at the same price or lower.

It's off on my camera, so yes I'm sure :) It's here:

Custom menu (gears icon) -> D. Disp/PC -> Mode Guide.

Dr_Jon: Looks very interesting - pity about the battery life (and battery price) though. Be interesting to see how bad it looks with a f2.8 zoom attached... Tempting...

Meh, less than 10% difference compared to GM1 battery life--not a huge deal. And 3rd party batteries are cheap.

Is a squinty little EVF like this actually better than a large rear LCD?

Aperture ring on a variable aperture lens? Weird.

peevee1: 14/2.5 II... 55g, just like the original.
" version of an existing lens but with revised graphics" - what does that mean?

Same lens, different colors and markings.

PRohmer,
You can and should turn that off. It's a setting in the menu.

T3: So whatever happened to all those yahoos who believed that the key to better high ISO performance was MORE pixels and HIGHER pixel density?

Was more pixels = less noise the actual claim? Are you sure it's not that more pixels doesn't equal more noise at a per-image level? There's a difference.

Lab D: A 4K camera that can't shoot 4K on its own. Only Sony.

What's the point of 4096 instead of 3840? Doesn't that make for a weird aspect ratio?

Raist3d: Knowing how some fans are, I wonder how many people pointed this out only to be told they were making things up :-)

Lots. Oh the crow-eating that will ensue. Or not, since people who ridicule others the loudest are often the least likely to admit their own mistakes.

Dunsun: If I'm not mistaken E-P5 already has this feature.
Setting: Release Lag-time = short.

Cheers

E-M1 has that too. This is something different.

jhendrix: Anyone have an example of ISO 204,800? Does it look like pointillism?

If you turn on noise reduction it looks like a Monet.

On Olympus OM-D E-M1 Review preview (2062 comments in total)

Is there a mistake at ISO 6400 on the daylight studio shot? Up to ISO 3200 compared to the E-M5 and E-P5 the E-M1 is almost identical. Then at 6400 the E-M1 is very smudgy compared to the other 2. At 12800 they're comparable again. The problem doesn't seem to occur in the low light studio shots at ISO 6400 so it shouldn't be the camera at fault.

Mrrowe8: Those that are poop pooping my saying is this better then the RX100 , is at the price point this camera and the RX occupy the RX is full frame is this camera ? Ahh NO , the RX as well fits in ur pocket .. This does not ., so some of you are saying you would buy a camera that doesn't have better over all resolution , not full frame and u have to buy additional lens for while the RX is full frame fits in ur pocket and has the equivalent of several lens ? Seriously ur going to defend that ? C'mon man no one is that stupid ...

Where is this RX that has a full frame, can fit in a pocket, and is around this price point? I'd buy 3 of them.

Wrong AND adamant--a winning combination.

In reply to:

Sam Carleton: So how are folks coming up with the f/3.2 equivalent? If the Nikon 1 is a 4/3 system, then you double the aperture, correct? That being the case, if you do the math the correct way, you square the aperture of f/1.2 and get 1.44, then multiple that by a factor of 4 (2 square) and get 5.76, then take the square root of that and get f/2.4.

This fits because f/1.2 is half way between f/1 and f/1.4, f/1.7 is one stop slower, being half way between f/1.4 and f/2, then f/2.4 is half way between f/2 and f/2.8.

So how are folks coming up with a f/3.2?

Nikon 1 is smaller then 4/3.

Richt2000: Wow. I reckon if the X-Pro2 has autofocus speed of a m43 camera, and the roadmapped lenses are as good as the existing 35 and 60 lenses, it will be a killer travel system.

AF speed is a big "if"--it has a long way to go to catch up. But if it does I'll be taking a 2nd look for sure, especially with the 23mm f/1.4 coming up.

tkpenalty: Is it just me or are panasonic carrying the m43 platform themselves these days?

It's just you.
