jcmarfilph: If you really want to shoot using smartphone, don't force yourself or just eat your pride and buy pureview phones and not an overpriced mediocre iPhones.
And if you're buying pureview phones because of the camera, why not just buy a decent camera? It's a CELL PHONE first, a camera second. The day pureview phones come with a decent operating system, they may have something but until then, their OS is what keeps most people away from them.
Canon gets the 70D. Oly gets the E-M1. Pentax gets the K3. Nikon gets the Df. Thanks but no thanks Nikon. D4 sensor or not, I'll buy a D800 or a used D3 for that kind of money and have a much more all around capable body for stills let alone the ability for video.
I never comment on people's images. Absolutely outstanding.
"And I hope the new iPhone will have a better camera now. Not a mediocre camera with sensor smaller than a pinhead. And optical zoom too so we will no longer see horrible trying hard accessories to make it look like a decent phone.
Basically, a phone with larger sensor (similar to PureView), a handgrip, an EVF, an optical zoom lens with which you can attach physical filters not insta-crap filters and 4G and WIFI capability."
So basically you want........a camera instead of a phone. :-)

I see it still has that ridiculous bundled flash that Oly insists on using. God I hate that flash on my E-Pl5 and prefer the pop up of my E-PL2.
