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.
tanmancs: Attention Olympus, time to grow some balls and give us the Full Frame EM-1. No more excuses.
I doubt. If so, Olympus come with FF body, we got again the lens size problem. Olympus/Panasonic don't want compete with FF category, at least it seems to me, they are developing and growing around the M43, if they can dominate this segment, why they will enter the territory of CaNikonSony? Do not say impossible, but unlikely.
dylanbarnhart: Sony fragmentation continues. Just when you thought the Alpha was great, Sony tells you the SLT is better. Then the NEX came a long with even better image quality in smaller size. Then scratch that, full frame NEX is here. Oh and lenses you bought don't work now. If you're sick of buying lenses, then the RX superzoom is for you. Actually who needs a camera anyways, since we're all using camera phones nowadays. So scratch that and buy the QX lens camera instead. All you really sacrify is image quality.
But really, no matter what lenses you buy today, they won't work for yet another Sony system to be announced tomorrow. But don't worry, there will be adapters.
I thought Sony learned a lesson from their TV days. Guess not.
As the 4/3 and M4/3 lens all work on the same body of the E-M1.
Digitall: kudos to Sony by break the technical barriers and mythological until now many manufacturers never dared to break.About this model, well..., ugly like a hell. The RX1 body adapted with Lego parts results in a design aberration, imo.
Now we got a nice FF ILC camera size, but, the lens still heavy, big, but this is a tec. compromise of FF.
We gained weight and body size, but the lenses remain set screw...
Weight vs size vs handling the M43 is the most logical. Mainly due to the design of the lens.
I like the RX1 design, simple, clear, clever. But the idea behind of this A7 absorving the RX1 model, but worse is patently visible,with several bumps that do not bind to each other.I did not say a engineering aberration technically speaking,at least on paper, that is not the case, simply by design, I was pretty explicit.Of course the M43 makes sense, we can not look only for the M43 line of Olympus OMD eg., Olympus itself has cameras very far smaller than the OMD and take the same lens system, something that is impossible in FF. Maybe a fair comparation, we can compare a Pro FF DSLR to a Pro M43, like a OMD E-M1 vs Nikon D4/D800 or Canon 5D MKIII or 1DX talking about size.On M43 you have x-treme small bodies and Pro bodies, more clearly large, but everyone has one thing in common, they all lead the same lens system.

If Sony put 1″ sensor on all bridge cameras, they win again.
And I delete so many supposed artworks for trash bin...I have to be more selective.
Ken Rocket: no camera specs? :)
I think it's an Iphone
Take care of the planet, as we only have this to live. Beautiful pictures indeed.
A summary of all the things is a good way forward, preferably weekly!
Advantages of a curved mobile phone? 1 advantage. Put in the back pocket of our jeans. anyway, if we put bad we can break it easily. I do not see any benefits, which becomes more of a different gadget.
An excellent innovation, which involves painstaking research and technology that only a year later it was possible to reach this level of evolution, a breakthrough in the world of photography. Still say that Nikon is not being innovative..."At the heart of the image".
no compromise eh? The only compromise is to pay the lens.55mm 1.4 by €2,940 or US$3,999 (excl. VAT), now I miss the good old days of analog, when a 1.4 lens was quite accessible...
I still think that the DPreview should have the category of bronze medals in their options when reviewing a camera, and I'm not even talking about this camera specifically that personally quite like the camera, but as far concesual more logically and not radical assignment medals. Even in the Olympic Games there is always place for the bronze medal...
I think Hackers hates Adobe, also. The pressure of the shareholders and the rush of profit led to neglect of safety, a word that both Adobe sells this product is safety. How can we be sure of our work in the sophisticated Adobe. Who sows the wind, reaps the whirlwind. Nice one Adobe.
Some country's say that models who have a body mass index (BMI) - adopted by the World Health Organization for the calculation of the optimal weight of each individual - less than 18 kg(39lb 10.931oz) / m², were forbidden to parade at the fashion events. I doubt that this model fits into these rules. The fashion world is a machine for making dreams, that too much influence on our youth, and helps create stereotypes sometimes wrong, with consequences on health as a general context. And Photoshop is the best anti-aging cream of the world.
...and, I hope that wi-fi logo may be removed, what a ugly logo, really. lack of taste for the design/aesthetics, if it exists.
Who need a Nikon D800 or Mark III at his days! It will not take much time watching weddings photographed with a clock...
Spent all this time since the launch of the RX100 series, which still has no competition. RX100 series continues to be years ahead of the competition. And I say unfortunately.
A natural evolution from from EM-5, with some great adictions, better EVF, better grip, virtually no CA, better detail IQ, better stability, better AF, better noise at high iso, and so on..., well done Olympus, Just please, down the price and will be an instant hit. I Like this E-M1.
