It looks very like my FM2N, someone bet if it will also last as long?

Henry M. Hertz: honestly i don´t see a reason for this.
don´t get me wrong i had the E-PL1 and just bought a cheap used E-PL3 last week.
when i buy a mirrorless i do it because i want a SMALL camera, as small as possible.

i think this is a nice camera with great features.

but... this is not so much smaller then a DSLR.
sure it is smaller... but not much more comfortable to carry.
at least i would not care.

and they can talk about how great EVF are as long as they want... i have yet to see one that impresses me. in 3-4 generations maybe.

if i would start to build me a new system, i would pay 200$ more and buy a 6D or D600.
and have the biggest systems i could wish for.

and as much as m43 fans will hate me for what i said above, the majority of customers seems to think the same.
m43 sales are not that good and oly and pana are in trouble.

i guess it´s another good camera from oly that will fail to make a real profit for the company.

i also have the epl and i like his compactness. but it seems that someone really needs the viewfinder, so olympus is simply trying to stay on the market.
hope they invest even on the smaller cameras

On Ten one-of-a-kind cameras from the 21st century article (252 comments in total)

as usual with new products the early years are full of experiments, before a large standardization is reached.
the infrared sony is really cool.
i remember a minolta with detachable lens, i mean the lens and sensor had a wire connection to the camera body. pobably to save money of a remote control!

ahahaha i was nervous reading the article!
luckly the GAS syndrome the autor describes is a bit different from mine: i never sell old cameras to buy a new one! i used them untill they fell into pices or just leave to take dust.
i have a 100mm nikon i litterally took 2 shoots with and never sold it
i recently bought a worn out tlr camera for 20$, i opened it and cleaned only to discover i don't like it so i bought a medium format kiev. i could sell the tlr for 40-50$ but never did.
i bought a lot of 3 folding camera and still haven't decided the 2 that must go!

funny thing is that my digital compact is in pretty bad shape after some 20000 pics and everytime i say "must save some money to buy a new one"!

don't know what is worse ...

In reply to:

klopus: What’s the point of m4/3 format now when Sony, Samsung, Canon, Fuji, Pentax and Ricoh all have ASP-C mirrorless systems? Initial promise of m4/3 was smaller and lighter bodies and lens not only because of getting rid of the mirror and allowing for the shorter lens registration distance but also supposedly thanks to the smaller sensor. Now look at Sony’s NEX line for example – overall size and weight are both comparable to what Oly and Pana have to offer but with bigger sensors affording less noise, more DR, more resolution and more DOF control. No wonder NEX is wildly popular. So why to stick with 2x crop sensor format which nowadays doesn’t deliver any tangible benefits in IQ or size/weight or speed or price or innovation or even battery life?

how can one says that m43 aren't smaller than the apsc i don't know...
yes the 20-50 samsung lens is quite small and so it is the sony pankake but you can't change phisic.
and the difference is even bigger if we look at the tele zoom.
my opinion m4.3 today is a great balance dimension/iq, the only problem is high price of the lenses, hope that with the increasing competitors even the prices will reduce.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1 preview extended news story (282 comments in total)

i really like this camera, it remembers the old beirette i started with. it was a cheap soviet camera with a fixed lens and took great pics.
what disappoints me is the by-wyre MF connection, sorry but for this price it's not excusable, the manual ring should be alwais connected. from what we can read the af isn't top fast, so with the by-wire connection probably the camera will strugle in the situations in wich a AF-tracking is required.
i would ditch the macro ring in order to have a better MF ring.
i liked the 6400iso samples and wait to see a comparison with the nex6.

wyoming: maybe it's the best superzoom camera on the market (exept for the price), but in my opinion on this kind of camera it's mandatory to use AA batteries.
i'd never considered to buy a superzoom, i have never needed a 24X lens on a camera wich is bigger than a mirrorless but has a compact sensor.
but if i try to see the piont to buy a superzoom i imagine someone that goes in a remote place and must stay as light as possible (or he could bring a panasonic gh+ a tele lens).
in this situation it's ridiculous to force to have a spare battery in the pocket.

i never tried a superzoom with a iq better than a standard compact. today many compacts has 15-20X zoom and they can fit in a pocket, you only loose the wiewfinder.
i have a mirrorless, it weights around 350gr with the lens and if i need a 90-300 it weights another 200g.
so i'd buy a superzoom only if i have to go in a place when i need at the same time a 24 and a 500mm and i can't change the lens... so i go and i have to take the spare battery or i run out of electricity! a modern AA lithium goes up to 2200m/Ah while most of the proper battery are between 600 and 1500m/Ah so the AA also have LONGER life.
my old casio still takes good pics, but i had to replace it because the battery is gone and i can't buy another one.

In reply to:

wyoming: this lx7 is great on the paper, it combines the fast lenses of samsung ex/olympus xz with the great manual controls of the old lx5.
with a 1.4-2.3 i think it should have a 1 stop advantage over the sony rx100 so in the real use they are pretty near shooting in low light.
the real problem of this tipe of camera today is that they are too close to a m4/3 both for the size both for the price.
those aren't pocket camera, you even have the lens cap!
this camera sold for 400$ / 300€ here in europe would be great, instead it costs around 450€ and the sony is 550.
sorry but for this price i'd buy a gf5 or a pen everyday. put on the 20mm 1.7 and they are even smaller!

a pen with a 20mm pancake is great for trip pothog. the pen with the standard 14-42mm is only a tad thicker than the lx7 and great allrounder.
difference is that the pen with the kit lense here in europe is 150$ less than the lx7 and you can change the lense everytime you want.

i usually hate the retro looking on a camera but i think this is very nice.
problem with theese high quality compatc is that they aren't that compact anymore.

Francis Carver: The world is increasingly led from Korea now. Once it was Europe, and then Japan. Now, Korea. Without Korean innovators, we would be paying $5,000 for a 50mm/F1/8 Carl Zeiss glass probably. Thanks, Samyang!

hope they start give more attention to m4/3 in the future.

Direct link | Posted on Sep 15, 2012 at 09:51 UTC

maybe this is the beginnin of the end for the reflex market?
certainly could be the definitive camera for some users (at least untill the batteries will be avalible for sale) like old leica.
but to me a mirrorless without interchangable lens doesn't make much sense.

this is very interesting, i prefer the m4/3 compactess but this camera is very interesting.
in my opinion mirrorless will eat the dslr market in the next years.

look at the ball in the comparative shot with the lx5: to me it looks like the x10 overexpose the red light.
would be interesting to see what happens putting some filters in front of the lens.

On First impressions shooting with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 news story (269 comments in total)

i have an olympus pen, i like it and it exeeded my expetations.
it does good pics and you can modify quite every impostation from the menu so it's a very good camera in my opinion.
but i still think it isn't an alternative to a dslr for a professional user, so i'm curious to see how this really goes.
