WOW!! This camera has got it where it counts! If this kind of IQ is consistent from copy to copy, then count me in. I didn't care much for its appearance but with this kind of IQ, I don't care. Gone is my E-510 and gone is my D90. It just seems too good to be true though. DP Review, is there a chance you could test another random OM-D? What lens were you using? Thanks.

After viewing more of Vivian Maier's work on the net, it is easy to determine that she was a truly great photographer. Thanks Barney Britton and dpreview. I shall be picking up a copy of Street Photographer in the very near future. Best Regards.

Lyteskrybe: I was getting ready to sell my E-510 but instead will likely upgrade from the kit lens to a 14-54II or a 12-60. Neither does the D do it for me visually (it's that hump!). I wish you luck with that one Olympus. I will always have (and still use) my black OM-1n with which to remember the good ol' days.

Sorry, but just look at anything from an OM-1 to an OM-4T and you'll see that the VF hump is simply disproportionate to the body and thereby, is NOT authentically reminicent of the classic design. Remove the inscriptions and I would never have guessed that it was an attempt at mimicking the OM classics.

Lyteskrybe: I've been waiting for this. I still own and use OM-1n, OM-2S, OMPC (a.k.a OM40), a really nice late s/n Zuiko 50mm f/1.4, 50mm f/3.5 macro, 24mm f/2.8, etc.. A digital OM body that could make full-frame use of these great lenses is on its way? Sign me up!

Looking at the Kyodo News release, it states that the new camera, "OM-D," will be a mirrorless ICL, not a DSLR. With that, it's likely to be M43 anyway.

On Buyer's Guide: Enthusiast raw-shooting compact cameras article (286 comments in total)

Not surprizingly, the Olympus XZ-1 with its Zuiko has the best lens and that's evident in dpreview's widget test-shot comparisons available in its review. The glass is always of utmost importance when it comes to making good photographs and Olympus/Zuiko has always been the most consistent in that department. The rest is just a light-tight box with processing bell and whistles more or less.

It is interesting and relevant. Although a photograph by its very nature decontextualizes, and, granted, it is merely one frame, one pixel, extracted from the composite of existence, it is nonetheless important to me particularly from a naturalistic or journalistic perspective that it not be posed, that it be a mere recording. Otherwise, it becomes propagandist. Due to my admiration and quest for truth in general, when photographing nature I try to resist the temptation to pose or stage my photos by, for example, adding a leaf here or removing a stick there. Photography as a means of artistic expression, on the other hand, is unlimited in the means by which it is brought to fruition. And visual parables too can be ways of conveying truth. Dissimulation is of course a part of a predator and prey world in nature and human ventures. Yet we humans are capable of grasping the value of Truth and are always the better for it when we try to serve it in photography or elsewhere.

Lyteskrybe: HELP! Hi. I am hopeful that someone might be able to help me get my image submitted to this challenge. Each time I try to enter, I get to the Submit a Photo Challenges page, but the "Pick photo" and subsequent headings are in faded print so that when I click on them nothing happens. The only button that works for me on that page is "Select another challenge" but that's where my access again ends. Are there some security or other settings on my computer that I must adjust in order to enable this page? Or, do I perhaps just not qualify to enter this challenge somehow? Thanks. Regards.

Problem solved. Thanks.

In reply to:

desmes: If it could only be 6 or 8MP ...

The more pixels on a small sensor there are, the smaller they need be and thus more prone to overflow with blown highlights and noise. The reason 10MP is the max on most high-end compacts is not because manufacturers are too cheap to put biggers ones in, but because experience has taught them that 10MP is the limit after which IQ is ultimately compromised on such sensors. That's how I understand it anyway. Cheers.
