tabloid: To make it simple.
I bet that if I took a picture with my Sony A65 and then a identical picture with a A3000, nobody would be able to tell the difference.
I bet that if I did a video with my Sony A65 and then a identical video with a A3000, nobody would be able to tell the difference.
To me that is the bottom line.
Good IQ in a bad package. Results could be identical but the experience behind them will be a lot different.
I hope they had improved the IQ over the "old" 16 sensor at least...
They could add 30$ to the price and put in the camera decent viewfinder... hope the sensor at least would be an improvement over the classic 16 of the others E models...
GodSpeaks: This is the camera the GX1 SHOULD have been.
From a list of features, it blows the Sony NEX out of the water as NEX is so feature poor. Time for Sony to up their game.
Now I can ditch my NEX-6 and go all in on micro four thirds.
This is a fine contender to the e-p5, I greatly appreciate the built-in viewfinder, and I too think this would be a great contender to the nex line, hoping in a price drop for the nex models to grab a nex 6 for a discounted price.
I'm wainting for an rx10 - apsc version of this beauty :)
Richard Murdey: Pentax Q10 Evangelion edition Type. 01 "Rei"
I new I'd seen that color scheme someplace before.
I wonder where is accomodated the progressive knife
ogl: Hope they will launch K-02 soon with another body and with EVF
I'm hoping the same...
thanks god I lived enough to see this thing...
where is the conclusion page?
Those boots were made for walking 'cause running with 'em would be impossible :)
I wish I could afford at least the first model... :(
ShatteredSky: Yep, this makes me reconsider to stay with the good old DSRL, except if this would come in Fuji mount ... heck, would even put this on m43. Now if only Olympus could make its 14-35/2 available as an updated, smaller version. But certainly never at this price point.
Count me in as impressed.
I'm in the same boat of you! I was looking for a new mirrorless camera and now this lens makes me think again about my photographic future, the olympus version for 4/3 mount is almost 3 times the price and weigther! I hope sigma will come out with a micro 4/3 version of this beauty...
King Penguin: I'm so happy, I'm glad I bought only FX primes when I had a DX cam, and now i have my D600 it's nice to know my investment in the 28mm f2.8D, 50mm f1.4G and 85mm f1.8G was a good one. (All preowned, all from eBay and all in mint condition) Happy, happy, happy :)
touched for the first time today, it's very small and compact, the only problem is the price...
nice camera, now I just have to wait for a nicer price cut :)
Nice camera but a little too expensive... hoping in a nice IQ improvement over the xz-1 at least...
It would have been a lot better if they had changed the price tag instead of the specifications :(
It have to be in a square format? (It says minumun 600x600 max 2048x2048)
sadwitch: The 17mm looks promising.
more than promising, hoping in a good price for this one :)
Nimenion: The new XZ-2 is a no go for me. Speed of the lens is good, but I really need a 24 mm wide. So - what a pity!
Sadly true, they could have improved the wide angle to better compete against cameras such as panny lx7
rocklobster: I am just pleased that Olympus had some new models to show. That 16Mp sensor in a small body is just what I need but like others posting here - where is the E-P5 and the standard DSLR successor to the E5?
Now micro 4/3 is olympus' core business, I doubt we will get a chance of getting major improvements for the standard 4/3 anytime soon... anyway the absence of the e-p5 is quite annoying, maybe they want to sell a little more em-5 before unveiling it...
