90 MB/s data rate. That is impressive. I need a new memory card. Well, and a 5D III
photo perzon: Prices of m4/3 are now twice of DSLRs such as Nikon D3100, 5100 and three times high performance compacts such as the LX7. Then their lenses are also $ 1,000 easy.
No, these cameras are not nearly as good as OM-D is. Try to operate a D3100 or even a D7100 in LiveView! It is arkward.
Anders Ostmoe: I guess this this camera do not support 4/3-lenses any better than the OMD?
The OMD is way faster with 4/3-lenses than the 4/3-cameras are when used in LiveView.
Airless: The best LCD-only camera ever
It ist not LCD-only. You can use several EVFs.
zinedi: I can't understand this: if there is no built-in VF, which disqualify any camera for quantity of possible customers, why they do a tiltable glossy (shiny) LCD? It is unusable for serious focusing even under overcast sky. Why don't they put there a matt screen?
The touch-AF is realy great. I think the best AF ever. But it would be even better if it would be less glossy.
Pbvascon2: Am I the only one who thinks that the original E-P1 had the best balance of retro and modern styling?
Well the touch-AF in the EM-5 is just great. This will be great in this camera too.
No, you are not the only one. But this camera has almost everything I am missing at my E-P1. The screen and the optional VF. Flash is also nice. I don't have one of my flashes with me all the time. (FL-14, FL-36R)
Now it is the camera I wanted to have when I bought the E-P1 (used). It has a tilting screen, an EVF optional and a build in flash. I tried the E-PL3 but it lack to much features, the E-P1 has. For example the second dial, the orientation sensor, the bigger screen.
gsum: These shots, they are OK but I can't help but think that the real artist is the one that designed the camera. Far more effort, time and thought goes into engineering design than the taking of photos such as these.
Artists are just better at self publicity than great engineers.
from a well know encyclopedia: "Until the 17th century, art referred to any skill or mastery and was not differentiated from crafts or sciences"
Just think of art like in artisan!
The Canadian government has apologized for Bryan Adams on several occasions.
Cychen: OMG Laser can kill a camera instantly, folks using cameras there should be careful.
Let's hope they use normal laser instead of OMG-laser.
Nikonworks: Live View image recording time is outrageous, and for this one issue, how in the word does this camera, which I use everyday, merit a Gold Award?
Live View seems to be irrelvant to the testers. That bahavior in Live View makes this camera unusable in this mode.
Naveed Akhtar: I wish if my lovely m43 companies will also get this courageous and offer f1.8 for their smaller sensors!Bravo Sigmaaa!!!
Olympus makes the 14-35mm F2.0. I can tell you this lens is realy big and heavy. I mean, realy. Last time I checked it was about 2200€.
BeanyPic: Just been reading through some of the comments below. Canon should thank their stars that the people who are trying their best to find fault with this camera know not what they speak. Adding a swivel screen would do 2 things... Make it bigger and the screen size would have to be smaller. People this is the nearest thing to Dr Who's Tardis that you'll get. When you can break the laws of Physics please share with the world and brands will buy it from you. This will beat Sony's and Olympus's try and fail cameras, that promise so much on the box but fail when it comes to the real world.
But a swivel screen is so incredibly useful and convenient! The few mm are nothing compared to what you get.
Can it shoot RAW?
Henrik Herranen: Suggestions to DPreview:1) You really should add sensor size on the highlight features of every camera (in mm x mm). And put it first, or at least amont the megapixel line. In my opinion sensor size is even more important than the number of megapixels because it will ultimately set an absolute upper limit for image quality.2) Another suggestion would be to also put the equivalent maximum aperture along with the equivalent focal length. To those who can read such equivalence numbers the equivalent aperture will tell the total light capturing capability of the system (over the whole sensor) as well as absolute diffraction limitations (again over the whole sensor).Kind regards,- Henrik
Suggestions:1)Use metric sizes generally.2)Give absolute aperture in mm in addition to relative aperture given as f-stop.
Hm, a palm is not exactly a tree.
Well...With the MF-23 Data Back for the Nikon F4 one could do very amazing things with his camera. Why is that not part of every DSLR nowadays? That's stupid. Ok, auto bracketing is.
eddiephtgrphr: Battery life of 10 years or 10 hours? Lol
The trigger 10 Years. The iPhone less than 10 hours. Long exposures? Watch your iphones batteries!
