princewolf: I can't buy one, so doesn't interest me. Waiting for Sony or Fuji to come up with that fixed-lens medium-format mirror-less for under 5000 bucks. Might be a long wait :)

Well, seeing as I have to spell it out... different systems for different folks. You could pick apart any body/lens out there and always find cheaper/better bang for the buck. However, Phase One and ALPA continue to sell cameras every year to those that NEED them.

Kinda like cars... is a GT-R worth 3 times a 370Z? Is a 428 Speciale worth 4 times a GT-R? Not to me but they still sell lots every year but I don't feel inclined to get on Ferrari forums and tell people they are wasting money :P

Going by that logic; why would anyone ever buy a D810 over a A7R as they have the same sensor?

Nice! Been using the V5's for a few years now, first on Nikon and now Olympus; may be time for an upgrade.

I'm sorry if you cant do a simple Google search on LR5 vs PS6 but there are far far to many differences in workflow to even start on here.

"Somehow I'm guessing your Photoshop didn't come with Bridge, mine did. Bridge makes silly software like LR unnecessary."

That statement alone tells me everything I need to know. Thanks!

Thats funny... I use PS and LR all the time together and I find them both rather invaluable.

Dying software is not nearly as expensive as obsolete software.

I just checked your gear list HowaboutRAW: you list a Noctilux (and other Leica glass). That lens alone is $11K (US) and yet $10/month is a rip off? LOL, man thats rich!

HowaboutRAW; I still dont get how the $199 upgrade is in your favor. Sure the upgrade cost you $199, what did the initial purchase of PS (and LR) cost... I'm ballparking $500 for CS5, $120 for LR and another $199 for the CS6 upgrade. Thats a (conservative?) estimate of $819 for owning the software or 81 months of rental (that includes all updates). And I get to spread the cost over 8.75 years.

How many updates (at $199?) over 8.75 yrs is that?

How again is the math in your favor?

Okay, I'll bite..

Mike99999: Time for Olympus to launch a full frame OM-D with E-mount.

Hmm, Sony owns Olympus now do they? That's news to me, probably to Olympus as well. Oh, you mean that they bought some shares in Olympus... guess that means I own Apple as well.

In reply to:

white shadow: The EM5 replacement is the EM1. All Olympus need to do is lower the price of the EM1 and make another better camera to replace the EM1. Perhaps, this time they can improve the video capability to 4K if they can. However, I doubt so because Olympus, like Fuji, is not strong in their video technology.

The EM1 is actually quite nice as a micro 4/3 camera but the price is just too high. For almost the same money, one can go for the Canon 7D Mk2 which surpasses it in almost all front.

As for me a micro 4/3 camera should be small. Thus, I would settle for the GM1 to use it for all the situation where a bigger camera is not convenient despite its limitation. For a general use camera, I would go with the 7D Mk2 for speed and versatility and probably a full frame DSLR or medium format like the Pentax 645 for large print image quality.

Well guys, not to point out the obvious or anything... if you want small, m43 has you covered, why do you need to by the biggest (m43) body out there? Oh and the E-M1, as a system, is still (and always will be) smaller than any of your beloved Canon gear.

Just what Olympus needs, another mount to support. No thanks, they have had a hard enough time trying to turn the company around.

Outdated, obsolete, discontinued, whatever it is I will say that the E-M5 is the only digital camera that I don't think I'll ever sell. It's just too damn good looking and handling; a true modern classic. Its the one that made photography fun again (for me). I will eventually replace it (E-M1 successor?) but the E-M5 will always be mine.

I cant say that about any other digital camera I've owned.

Now you did it! Thats like the Leafs up 2-0 with 5min left in the third and saying "Reimers gonna get a shutout tonight!"

maxnimo: Okay, I'm trying hard to not burst into laughter, but what would a serious photographer use a 7-14mm lens for?

The only thing I can think of is a sneaky, dishonest realtor who wants to make a small room appear huge.

Wow, just... wow.

Everlast66: I think it is laughable to call anything associated with the M4/3 system "PRO"!!

Surely there would be one or two enthusiasts, but no normal professional will rely on a M4/3 sensor for their professional work.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than post something and remove all doubt.

Such typical DPR reader comments; If you like the upcoming Zuiko glass, your a fan boy. If your a Canikon shooter, they are a waste of money and you are an idiot for buying anything other than FF.

Hilarious!

Kim Letkeman: Glad to see that this site caters to the 1%. The rest of us are, of course, temporarily embarrassed millionaires and will one day be on the market for a gold plated camera so that we don't have to pixel peep the images to know that we are gods.

Damn, I just blew this months income on a gold plated Rolls... if only I'd known!

Okay, I take back my previous comment... the Pentax Sweets collections isn't the stupidest thing I've seen this year.

We have a new winner!

Stay away. Once the company goes belly up in a year, all of your photos that you trusted to the cloud will be lost.

Sooo... tell me how this works if they are not storing any of your photos?
