vesa1tahti: No time lapse, no bulb = useless

those features are for amateurs. but, hey...you can find those in a tiny sensor Oly camera

Wow! This the a huge blow to Olympus. This should either put Oly out of business OR Olympus might come with better (read normal) price for M1 and delay the inevitable bankruptcy a couple more years.

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 rumored to be out of production article (211 comments in total)

Boy, it was about time to stop this abomination. Other than the IS, the camera was subpar. One needed child fingers to find the buttons on that thing. As for Olympus colors, that was always one reason for people to laugh. Well, people know a thing or two about photography. Over saturated colors doesn't mean great colors.

I'm sure Olympus cheerleaders will be flamed, but this is the truth. People with skills and a bunch of Leica lenses always use either a Leica camera or Sony A7. Let's face it, M5 was for amateurs.

This was a great camera for people that found the limits of their cell phones.

Whenever I hear Kodak, I think Walmart.
Super cheap, crappy stuff for $5 per hour McDonalds workers.
Match Kodak with a Blackberry phone and the whole neighborhood will laugh at you.

justmeMN: I'm skeptical of pancake zooms, because they tend to sacrifice quality for compactness. (e.g. Sony) Hopefully, this one is good.

Leica lenses are compact too

In reply to:

Joseph Mama: Too bad that FZ1000 aperture is limited to F8. I'd expect at least F11 or a ND filter. Im afraid that could really affect a common use case, which is outdoor sunny videos.
I suppose you could put a ND filter on the end as needed. Wonder if it has threads or if you need a magfilter?

Biological_Viewfinder: HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAHAHA!!!!!!11111

"Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 compared to Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10"

That's the funniest headline I've ever seen here!

-

I've owned several Panasonic cameras, and I own the Rx10.
The only Panasonic product I have ever liked was a cordless telephone.
Saying a Panasonic anything could even remotely compare to a Sony anything is the most ridiculous thing I've ever read here, and I've read a lot of nonsense.

The only reason I would even take this seriously is if I owned a Panasonic and didn't know any better.

Wow! Another one off his medication. BiologicalX, we are so glad you're in bed with Sony and love him so much. Gay relations must be a substitute for your Xanax.
Since the Walkman was released 30 years ago, I don't recall another Sony product to grab my attention. Sony makes overpriced garbage for those few fanboys left around. Sony, Kodak, Palm, Polaroid...they all have something in common. You get it?

minzaw: Sony and Apple are a well known ripped off companies.Remember Sony attempted with sony memory sticks now obsolete >>> now all sony cameras use SD or micro SD card

Minzaw, why so full of hatred? No one is forcing you to buy brand names. It's like blaming BMW for charging a premium for their amazing cars. You do realize you can always drive a Chevy, don't you? Not that you can afford a BMW anyway

Garbage like camera. Only if they pay me, I'd use a Kodak like that. It reminds me of a brownie in a shiny package. No thanks

Yep, always bad looking when you can't even afford the empty box

panpen: Meh.....Canon is for amateurs with little or no money. Looking at those samples, I wouldn't use a camera like this even if Canon paid me to do it. But there are always fanboys ready to fork whatever Canon asks for their garbage. The rear view camera from my car takes better pictures.

Interesting. Why do you need a camera there! You don't trust your friends?

srados: I think FUJI X-T1 could learn thing or two how to process JPG's from Canon.Even with smaller sensor, this camera beats Fuji X-T1.I will purchase this cam based on these samples.I do not care how heavy it is.It is DEFINITELY LIGHTER than SLR with 2 lenses in the bag.

Much better even than a Leica M9 or Sony A7R. Wait! Even better than a Canon 5D with the best L lens

Horrible samples. I bet I can take better picture with the rear view camera from my car.
If I want pocketable and good quality I'd look at Ricoh GR that has an APS C sensor and costs a bit more.

$1k for a 50mm 2.8 macro lens? Insane. If you don't need the macro capabilities, the Sigma 60mm 2.8 does the job for less than $240.

Hideous. One camera I'd use if Vivitar paid me to do it.
