Michael S.: Actually it does look like as

a) almost all posters here are too young to remember or

b) have already forgotten what Olympus claimed as the introduced the 4/3 system long time ago.

I have been there - as Olympus EUROPE introduced, marketed the at that time new and 100% digital 4/3 system with the upcoming E1.

The two sentences that fell and have always been repeated by the presenters have been:

1) "5 Megapixels are enough..."
2) "We will have smaller, lighter and cheaper lenses than our competitors".

Without a doubt - both clamis have failed.

If you want a fair comparison you need to compare all aspects and not only those that benefit your agenda. A 300mm f2.8 in m4/3 gives you EXACTLY the same results that a 600mm f5.6 in FF and there is no weight savings. Period. Now, you can come with the f2.8 is f2.8 mantra (that shows that you know nothing about the law of physics), but then please then don't forget that 300mm is 300mm also.

Hey Camediadude, I like your metacomment, that's it, a comment about your own comment. Because it's clear who is a fanboy (even your nick proves it). I am a happy m43 owner and user, but I find just silly comparing a 300mm with a 600mm when simply knowing basic numbers tells you it is completely wrong. of course a 300mm is smaller, because, well... it's a 300mm and not a 600mm. Some just don't want to get it.

Promit: If you think that the Oly 12-35 f/2 should weigh and cost the same as a full frame 24-70 f/4 because the depth of field is the same, you don't even deserve to own a camera.

Said the guy who decides who deserves a camera and who doesn't.

@ Mjankor : Sure, a 300m is smaller than a 600mm... just like a motorcycle is smaller than a car.

Antonio Rojilla: I'll buy one just because this phone will be a legend in two years when finally Microsoft kill the company.

BTW, here's an a fun side-by-side: http://www.quesabesde.com/noticias/nokia-808-pureview-pentax-645-comparativa-40-mp,1_8958

@JesseAu Yes, it would sell more if it had Windows, but that wouldn't stop Nokia from dying. Now if this camera were in a iOS or Android device...

In reply to:

acid592: Some members wrote as if f value is related to sensor size (if i understand right). I think f 1.4 always gets in more light than f 1.8 independent of the sensor size. Right?

Wrong.

LX7 -> F(4.7)/1.4=3.357
RX100 -> F(10.4)/1.8=5.7

On Samsung releases 12MP EX2F 'Smart Camera' article (370 comments in total)
In reply to:

peevee1: ALERT!!!
The specifications are deceptive. The weight of 294g is WITHOUT battery (and SD card I presume):
http://www.samsung.com/us/news/newsRead.do?news_seq=20206
The depth of 29mm is just a lie (probably is measured in the thinnest point and not at thickest as required and reported by other manufacturers).
I would not be surprised if they report width without the protruding lugs etc.
They think if they are not a Japanese company they can avoid following CIPA standards? But it is just a fraud. Buyer beware!

THANK YOU!!! A last someone thinks of the children!

In reply to:

Rooru S: "that split second moment is there to be captured and you need a camera you can rely on"

Yeah, curious what kind of lenses he will be using that will provide the speed required for these kind of events...and wondering if CDAF can keep up with the action. If he manages to get several good keepers, it will be a good thing. If not, then...then he spent the Olympics with the wrong equipment.

Yes, because when cameras and lenses were completely manual photographers didn't bother to attend sport events. Newspapers where filled with sketches instead.

Yes, but I doubt you would spot the difference. In either case.

On Canon announces EOS 5D Mark III 22MP full-frame DSLR article (501 comments in total)
In reply to:

Bill1969: Nikon and Canon switched places, Nikon fanboys used to brag about low res sensors which gives better high ISO photos, now, Nikon d800 has significantly higher pixel density, i bet 5d mk3 will have better high iso images...

Its funny now Nikon fanboys are bragging about high mp...

For those that NOW think that less pixels is better... may I remember you that they still sell the D700? And at $2200... Let's see how the MKIII compares to it at high ISOs. Will it be $1300 better?

Bogdan Spineanu: So, as a Canon owner .. Canon thinks probably they are the "Apple" of photography with these prices.
What .. GPS tracking and it isn't compatible with older cameras ? No software syncing of GPS data ?
That wireless transmitter is as expensive as a laptop !
For God Sake Canon !
That was a stupid day when I choose to go with Canon !

@Henry M. Hertz The quality of unreliable AF or failing mirrors?

Antonio Rojilla: Too bad it won't use Android. Not that I don't like Symbian, but with the just announced Ubuntu for Android and this cameraphone I'd be in heaven.

BTW, it is taking too much for the big camera companies to integrate a mobile OS -Android, Symbian, Maemo or whatever it is called now- in at least some of their models. How come you can't put this Nokia's phone hardware -antenna, Wi-Fi, GPS- inside a D800??? There should be space somewhere...

@epdm2be Please... learn to read! I said TWICE that it is not that I don't like Symbian BUT that I want Android for Ubuntu for Android. Ok, this is the third time... is it that hard to understand? Do you guys ever heard about reading comprehension? Amazing...

Well, it seems some of you that replied to me (and whoever upvoted you) didn't read the part where I said that it is not that I don't like Symbian but that I would like it to be Android for the newly announced Ubuntu for Android... Which was half my comment.

I'm a Ubuntu user since 2004, that's why I want Ubuntu for Android (and this is how it is called, not Ubuntu for Symbian nor Ubuntu for iOS, so it must be Android, at least for now).

On First impressions shooting with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 article (269 comments in total)
In reply to:

D200_4me: I vote to disable commenting on these news stories. If we thought the comments could be childish/foolish/arrogant/rude, etc in the discussion forums, just look below. There ARE some useful comments...or at least comments that are not intentionally demeaning, but way too many are insulting and childish. There's nothing wrong with dissent, but very often the comments people make here go way above and beyond that.

What we need is the option to "downvote" comments. Well, I'm too used to Reddit and the like...

YouDidntDidYou: Olympus is running at an operating profit has strong cash flow and funds to last until 2016.
Olympus imaging have had a rise in sales in many other countries part from Japan.

Michael "the donut" Woodford said: 'If they [Olympus] move in that direction, what happens to Olympus's camera business?" Like he ever cared and knows anything about photography or it's consumers.

"Olympus whistleblower Michael Woodford is being pursued by Hollywood for the rights to make a movie " who's going to play him, who's going to be the love interest, is it being shot in 3D????

Press Ad hominem, press Kill the messenger... Combo! You reached Fanboy Level 99!

In reply to:

Roger Knight: It is excellent news that there have been arrests which may go some way towards vindicating Michael Woodford in this affair. It remains to be seen if the Japanese judiciary are as currupt as we are led to believe.
Perhaps the court system will also do a thorough audit of all company officials to back up their case which will at the very least keep the wrongdooers in prison for some more time at least.

YouDidntDidYou is the very definition of "fanboy".

On Kodak to stop making digital cameras article (146 comments in total)
In reply to:

Anastigmat: Kodak was the early leader in DSLR cameras. They were building DSLRs using Nikon and Canon bodies that pros used to capture events such as the World Series. Unfortunately, they priced their DSLRs so high that ordinary folks could not afford them. That gave Canon an opportunity to come up with an "affordable" DSLR camera, the $3,000 D30. Canon soon followed with full frame DSLR cameras, leaving both Nikon and Kodak in the dust. At one point in time, shortly before Nikon released the D70, Canon had 80% of the DSLR market. Kodak simply could not compete. Kodak also made a full frame DSLR camera, but instead of using one of its own CCD sensors, it used a CMOS sensor designed and manufactured by an outside company to save cost. That sensor was so noisy that it doomed the camera. Besides, even with the cheaper CMOS sensor, the camera wasn't cheap. Quite simply, Kodak had a chance to be a player in the DSLR market but it made marketing mistakes by pricing their cameras too high.

What about the Nikon D1?
