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...
What? Casio is still making cameras?! -.-
peevee1: "Note that this hybrid AF technology is not compatible with any of the fixed focal length E-mount lenses except the high-end Sonnar T* 24mm F1.8 ZA."
Why is that?
So it will work with the kit 16-50 but not with the 35 1.8? how weird -.-
Hoping for a nice price for the e-mounted version of this 23mm :)
Nex 6 will surely be my next camera! I can't wait 'till xmas for having it :(
Hi, for this challenge it is allowed to join with any picture (who respects dpreview general rules) took with any 50mm lens (even on a cropped camera)?
Truly inspiring, congrats :)
This will be my nex(T) camera!!! I don't mind about native glasses (for now) 'cause I'm in love with legacy glasses :)
Where has gone the accessory port?....
Quite interesting, but why removing the accessory port....
I hope to see a complete review of this camera as soon as possible.
