CMurdock: The Sigma Merrill cameras have the best image quality of any pocketable camera, but DPR won't review them. I wouldn't dream of buying a camera (like this one) that has aggressive sharpening of JPGs that can't be turned off.
Right, but the camera is not useable, if you know what I mean.
The testphoto's show that the Panny GM1 shows just a little more detail. Agressive noisereduction in the E-M10?
eddie_cam: Wanna compare the size visually? Be my guest ...:
Nice, but what is your point?
eivissa1: I am sure that the expected Panasonic LX8 or 9 will be far better!
You could be right about that.
I am sure that the expected Panasonic LX8 or 9 will be far better!
pacnwhobbyist: I was hoping that they would release an LX7 update..maybe that's forthcoming?
LX updates are mostly half the year.
dialstatic: Vrolijk kerstfeest en een gelukkig 2014!
Ik sluit mij daarbij aan.
bloodycape: This camera is really tempting, but my only concern is maximum shutter speed of 1/50 when using the flash(would have like at least 1/240, but even 1/100 could have possibly worked. Maybe the GM2, GF7(if they made it a little smaller) or similar mode from Olympus would offer it.
Do you really need flash with this camera?
Owen: Why does Oly have to make their stuff look like outdated SLRs? My car looks nothing like a Model T.
...so just a few...!
I don't like a lenscap. So it wille be the Sony RX100.
Marijus: HmmSONY NEX--6 78% - Silver award.Fujifilm X-M1 77% - GOLD award.Can you explain why?Price is almost the same.NEX-6 has viewfinde, Fuji - doesn't;
Better menu, better JPEG's etc.
Karroly: Great ! A Ricoh camera with roughly the same feature set than a Panasonic Lumix DMC ZS-8 (TZ-18) of...2011 !
...and my TZ5 of many years before....
"28 mm is too wide for most people". Funny that he recommends the GR IV that has a 28mm lens.....
uglier than ugly....
sabad: Imaging-resource says that (and is said to be a full stop more sensitive). That is very impressive.
Yes, I meant that the details at high ISO were less compared with the older RX100. And that's too bad.
Yes, but if you view their test photos real closely, the details are less at high ISO.
It is a pity that Dpreview did not make a critical remark about the price, compared with another compact like the great Ricoh GR V, that costs about the same.No, I don't own the Ricoh...
Wanganuilad: Never having heard of G-star, thought G-star RAW was some kind of special file...but no
Dutch / Italian company.
bex9432: How come RX100 get overall score 78% compare Nikon Coolpix A 75%?
Compare them in the particular class....Different lenses, sensor etc.
abortabort: I have an E-PM2, E-PM1, E-P3, NEX-5n and EOS-M... right now, not including models I have sold off. The E-PM2 is my favourite of the bunch by far. It is cheap, it is fast, it is small, it is light, it has a great selection of lenses, it has great IQ, it makes great use of a limited number of buttons, it can take an EVF or OVF, it has good build but isn't heavy (unlike the EOS-M).
Overall it beats all those other cameras and I think is the perfect embodiment of what a mirrorless camera should be. It doesn't have the most features, but it is small and they don't limit the important stuff, like customisations, AF and fps speeds, no IQ. It fits everything that is most important into a small package.
In lots of ways it is better than the GR and Coolpix A when you have a 14mm attached.
Oh and it is WORLDS better than the E-PM1 it replaces. Easily one of the most overlooked cameras that I have had the pleasure to use - Really surprised to see a DPReview on it... Well done guys!
Let me give the answer. The test images of DPreview prove that especially the Raw images at high ISO are better with the E-PM2. That is amazing if you compare the difference in sensor size....!Still I am curious what will be the other of "the lots of ways".
