the camera looks wonderful, specs are fantastic, output not that impressive
perfect camera for 2005 along with cheapening the Pen line today
most still better than most we see today with $k dollars of equipment
just rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic
Leica must be belly laughing
Make lenses on par with Leica athalf the price, should be doable.
aperture starts at F4, what an advance
Anastigmat: The 4/3 sensor was invented when sensors were very expensive. The smaller 4/3 sensor cost a lot less than APS-C sensors so it allowed 4/3 format manufacturers a much higher profit margin. Nowadays there is hardly any difference in cost between an APS-C and a 4/3 sensor. Even FF sensors are fast becoming commodity priced. That puts 4/3 format cameras at a disadvantage because they are destined to be low volume compared to the APS-C models, and the low volume forces the makers to raise prices above APS-C models. That means a smaller, noisier sensor must be sold at a higher price than a larger sensors with more pixels. For this reason, the 4/3 format is doomed, in much the same way that half frame 35mm film cameras were doomed.
even MF sensors are also more affordable now
place a MF sensor in a DSLR body and you have something,just wait n see Nikon and or Canon do it.
and still no articulated screen
the G3 had a viewfinder and that was like a hundred years ago
does it still have the AA filter or am I missing something?
it had better be priced to sell
There's plenty of well established competitionwith FF lenses to match; wishing Pentax well.
with all the hype, surprisingly not impressed with image quality;maybe it's just my lyin eyes
white shadow: Good news for those who are new comers to the system. Bad news for existing owners as their second value has just dropped.
For me, I have moved on to Zeiss lenses in Canon mount. If you can work with manual focus, there is no comparison when it comes to image quality. Try them to find out especially if you are serious in photography.
two years too late
instead of a pimped out camera, how about a fully articulating lcd which would be useful to many
