ogl: 42.5/1.7 = 85/3.4 for 35 mm system.....It's slow lens.
maybe...I don't know English very good.
The speed is not changed, of course. But it's unreal to put this lens to FF. :) DOF is the same as 85/3.4 at FF. That's why it's slow lens for 4/3 system. There is no 85/3.5 lens for FF. Crop 2 never reach FF and hardly reach APS-C.
In terms of DOF - it's the same as 85/3.4 Educate yourself.

ogl: Nikon with real 36 MP is far better than 40 MP mode from crop 2.
There is AA filter simulator for moire. It's not problem in real life at all. This test is the photo of printed material on the wall. It's not real shooting. It's laboratory test. Nobody make photos of such objects in real life. Maybe it's good for museums? Maybe...
Did you ever seen landscape moire from cameras without AA filter? :)))
This technology could be used only for stationary objects with tripod. It's scanner, to the point. Only JPEG has some advantages. RAW is useless now. And it's useless for real shooting.
No moire? I don't think it's advantage. I don't see that moire is problem. No AA filter is advantage. High resolution.
OK - have a look at http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/4949987532/photos/3146999/comp2
is it good photo from Olympus? It's really bad.
We can't compare with another cameras, because there are no 40 MP APS-C cameras.
I mean that I don't see any advantages of High Resolution mode of m4/3 over real MP.
Nikon with real 36 MP is far better than 40 MP mode from crop 2.
Raist3d: So sad to see Russia doing this. I hope the rest of the world can serve as a living example of why this is ridiculous.
I know two gays. They live for 15 years together and has no any problem. They don't care about marriage and gay parade. It's nonsense for them. I don't like such style of life, but it's their choice.
P.S. No such law in Russia, I forget NO - http://www.kansas.com/news/politics-government/article1134079.html
No any violence. Gays could kiss at home or in clubs. If they kiss at the street, it's bad manners :) Any drunk men or passing pedestrian-homophobes could strike them. Or could be surprised. In theory. I never seen such things for my long life. No any difference for police if the injured person is gay or not gay. They are the same citizens. No marriage. Nobody thinks about gays and nobody care about gays in Russia. Believe me - Russian don't care about private life of two men or two woman. But there are gays even in Kremlin. For a long time. Only propaganda between infants is prohibited by law, gay's parades/marches are prohibited by local goverment. It's all. I think it's some kind of idiocy - to organize gay parade. If you love other man - it's your PRIVATE BUSINESS. Nobody organize parade if he loves woman. Do you know about USA's laws against gays? http://www.kansas.com/news/politics-government/article1134079.html More strict than Russian laws. There are such law in Russia.
Overton window theory works. It's easy to use mass media to manipulate of human consciousness for proving that cannibalism, paedophilia and zoophilia are great liberal values of our world. I'm not conservative, but I don't think that it's liberal system of values. It's substitution of liberal values. IMO. Who order it? And why?
The devices are simple: heart and brain. All answers are easy to find in New Testament. If you want to know the social attitude to gays in Russia I can say you: Nobody care about it. It's private life of two men and nothing else.
It's one of the biggest myth of Western propaganda. The sodomy is serious sin, but nobody prohibit to do it. Every human has the freedom of choice - to do sin or not to do it.
populism and speculation
Eric Hensel: I've never understood why they don't fit the O-ring to the camera-side mount --sealing any lens attached, at one of it's most vulnerable spots.
You don't understand. 10 lenses means frequent contacts with camera's mount.
Yes. I don't believe - I know. :) The mount of camera will have much more frictions and contacts with lens mount when you change one lens to another. Yes...If you use just 1-2 lenses, it won't be problem. IMO. But the camera is for different users. I have 10 lenses, for example. And I use all.
ogl: OVF 100% 0.8x - not lower36 MP sensor wider AF points than in APS-C cameras No AA filter It's enough for me
24 MP is old sensor, 36 MP is better in terms of DR and noise.
DFA ZOOMS are more important for future FF camera now, than fixed lenses. New fixed lenses will be on 2016-2017.
