This is the MFT year, or is beginning to be an important year for the MFT on bodies and lens. Well done Lomo. for a "plastic" lens will not be so cheap as we might think, for a little more we can get a well made and better materials single lens for MFT, I'm remember now the cheap Sigma's, but it's a valid option in the name of creativity.
Henry M. Hertz: try to put two cigaret boxes in your pocket. the GM1 body is small.. but with a lens it´s not a pocketable camera.
Henry, I have one RX100, and you can bet I will buy this camera currently instead of the RX100, even with one pancake prime or zoom, and I like the RX100 as a pocket camera vs IQ too.
Poss: I wonder when Nikon will update the firmware on my D3s... Soon I hope... soon indeed... yes...
Waiting for one D3X that I have, is better lying down and sleeping, longer even think about it...
fatdeeman: Maybe Canon will follow suit and give us 60D users AF micro adjust :)
Why's everyone laughing?
I like these stereotypes created by ... commercial ... partying official days of whatever. Hasselblad will create the official day of medium format, large format Sinar with ... will not suffice the world day of photography? More annoying is anyone still feeding these things.Ok, it was Coca-Cola invented Santa Claus...gezzzz....
Very good for who use the X100, well done Fuji!
Thomas Kachadurian: DPR is struggling to find something to complain about. Sure it's small, that's the point. There may be only one new lens but my trusty m43 lenses will all fit just fine.
It's the PERFECT companion to a GX7 or EM5 travel system as a back up body that will work with all the lenses in a pinch and is the perfect thing to slip into a pocket with the 28mm when going to dinner or those times when you don't take the full kit. I'll buy one.
Camera size comparation: OMD E-M1 vs GM1
Panasonic was smart at camera design now, they took the whole mounting diameter height to put a limit on the design of the camera, so this interesting size.
Digitall: M43 world needs a small fixed and fast lens camera and other with fixed fast zoom, who goes first?
It could be a question asked when they did the Leica X Vario, concerned the lens size changed significantly, could even be a pancake. Still, size weight and price this win for sure. I'm talking about the concept. The same concept applies both, in different proportions.
ManuelVilardeMacedo: This time Hassy doesn't have to go the lengths it went with the Lunar: in this case it's hard to make the raw material uglier than it is....Oh wait, there will always be exotic woods to get the job done.
be able to make something ugly, horrible. It is not easy!
As someone said in a text that read this will eventually Hasselblad Caterpillar
OMG, Will now begin to light the flamethrower and the party will start!DPreview likes to be provocative :-)
WACONimages: Seems brilliant. Use a Olympus OM-D or EM-1 and this tinny Panasonic as 2nd body with a fast prime or the 14-140II as walk around combo.
Agree, but E-M1 with a zoom, maybe 12-40 2.8 r other, and this one with a fast prime, 12/17mm or maybe the new Panaleica 15mm 1.7 when come out. Nice combo indeed.This wil be a good 2th camera to use with OM-D line.

I think this camera with a Oly. 12 mm or 17mm may be a temptation for street photographers.
qwertyasdf: The A7 kit is downright a bargain PERIODPeople, hold your negativity until you see the Hasselblad versionUntil then, we can only speculate what it will be called..
Hasselblad Peculiar?Hasselblad Molecular?Hasselblad Caterpillar?
Digitall: Nikon cheapskate prosumer built-in Wi-Fi, GPS, and 1080/60p video recording, really Nikon? Now I got Facepalm!I think the Nikon forgot to remove these specifications, simply put them by mistake :-)

More +-5 years, and APS-C goes to vegetate in rare format DSLR bodies. APS-C format DSLR is doomed, now more than ever. Nostradamus was consulted and what he foresees :-)
tanmancs: Attention Olympus, time to grow some balls and give us the Full Frame EM-1. No more excuses.
And...BMW owns MINI.Volkswagen owns Bentley.Volkswagen owns Bugatti.Volkswagen owns Audi.Ford owns Jaguar.Toyota owns Lexus.Volkswagen owns Lamborghini.Volkswagen owns Skoda.And brands do not compete with them, just different products, for different customers and different prices.
HelloToe: The problem I have with this sort of design is that even if you shrink the body of an FF down to a smaller size, you're still stuck with large FF lens sizes. If size is really what matters, APS-C or MFT still makes more sense. (And if size doesn't matter, why bother with a new system?)
Is this really a happy medium for anyone?
You can put a FF sensor on APS-C body.You cannot put a FF sensor on M43 body.So, M43 make sense indeed. APS-C don't, except maybe, for some serious compact cameras.
