Has anyone confirmed that the EM-10 II sensor made by Sony? Just Curious.
If/When Republic Wireless adds it to their line up I'm in. Those ISO 50 shots are impressive. Blows the current X out of the water.
Would be interesting to see a controlled set of samples shot just with the 12-42 EZ kit zoom. See how that combination stacks up IQ-wise to the LX100.
So I am wondering, from any of you who’ve handled both, how the EM-10 II compares to the Panasonic LX100 in terms of portability. Do they feel about the same size? I’ve used the LX100, but not the EM-10 II. I was able to jacket-pocket the LX100 and it looks like the same would be true for the EM-10 II w/ 14-42 EZ and / or small prime (eg, Oly 17 or Panny 20). Looking for that elusive, 'perfect' travel camera!
Pohz: While this is a fantastic camera that can fit in your pocket, I'm not sure that's entirely a good thing considering the price. I had issues with my RX100 because some fluff, dust or whatever it was got stuck in the electronic mechanism(while it was sitting idly in my pocket) and it stopped working completely. I shrugged it off because the orginial RX100 is very cheap but if that happened to this thing I'd be gutted. This camera is fragile.
Yes, I used a nice perfect-fit Case Logic case that slipped on my belt. Never did the wedging it into my jeans pocket bit. I'm pretty OCD about my gear - was really surprised and disappointed to see the sensor dust. Just picked up an LX100 - wish me luck! ;-)
Yes, I loved my RX100 until a huge dust bunny landed on the sensor. Sony was Zero help - I was able to return as a one time exception with Amazon - but that disappointment (both in the camera and in Sony) looms large (in all my dozens of cameras over the years never has dust gotten sucked into a P&S) no matter how the RX3/RX4 tempts me. At this price point, these units should be much more weather sealed and robust.
Superb! Great catch!
At $1299 with new kit lens - be nice, for those of us with a box of 4/3 lenses, if Oly tossed in the new adaptor for free (like they did with the OMZuiko-to-4/3 adaptor when the E-1 came out). Regardless, I'm in.
