ZeneticX: To sony fans: You better hope Olympus would be able to pull it off with sales of their new model. Sony owns a majority stake in Olympus so any gain is beneficial to Sony as a whole.
To olympus fans: Be thankful to Sony. Without them Olympus wouldn't even exist now after the 2011 incident
Copycat Sony should thanks Olympus for ideas.
wow many Olympus/M43/crop sensors haters
There are many P&S users in this market too, they love selfies, if you talk about missing features, and it means this camera is not for you.
2+ years, still going strong LOL!
Much better controls, viewfinder and everytihng..., but sensor LOL
for $100, A6000 might be better choice.
For low light A7S surely beat DF, but for 12MP resolution star fade out fast!
samfan: BTW what does the Df use its mono speaker for...?
Canon has nothing offer except dual pixel AF, that's what they do for the past few years, no more innovation, I believe many people rather see no updated for this M2, since when Canon become a joker?
Andrew Butterfield: I just can't keep up with this pace of progress from Canon.
I know you tried, so do the Canon users and me.
yabokkie: there were rumors that Canon might have been trying to change the sensor which caused the delay, but as always positive thinking fails.
then let's hope that hybrid AF II works just as well as dual-pixel AF.
check SL1's hybird II focus system is bad for movie, even photo, you can find many reviews on web.
Why adobe is not support newer OLympus lenses? last Olympus M4/3 lens profile adobe support was years ago,
basicly the Olympus EM5/EM1, Sony A7 and A7r start age of mirrowess, DSLR will soon to be end.
SDF: Wow! Based on the comments people posted here. - No touch screen AF- No in-body IS- Lens too big- Lens too slow- Lens too heavy- Only 2 lens at launch- Too expensive- Too ugly- No pop up flash- Fake penta prism- Body look cheap like a toy- EVF is garbage compare to OVF- Len adapter is too big- Sony copied OlympusThis could be the worst camera in the History. lol
it will be hot only because it looks like OMD, well enough hehe
already over 1k comments before the real review? Olympus really make some waves in here.
I see so many people complained about the new G16, I can't understand why? there are many buyers are not like you or me, maybe 1/1.7 size of sensor is good enough for them, some buyers are P&S shooter for their whole life, they don't even know what we talk about here.., I"m not a G buyer, not G15 or G16, I think it's expensive ugly low-end product, and selling at sky high price, there are too many much better choice out there, but look at the G15 user's reviews everywhere, it's almost like 5 stars perfect camera and Canon sold bunch of it.
NO matter you like or not, Canon is right with the market on this one.
Many people did not own any Olympus EPXX camera, these are quality made cameras, if you haven't hold one and test yourself, you should stop those none sense comments.
BSweeney: With an Olympus product, wait a year for a 40% price drop. 2 years, 70% price drop. They need to price the camera at a reasonable price, recover NRE over more sales, and lower product turn-over rate. My lesson learned with the EP2.
If you have money to burn, love u43, go for it.
The omd em5 do not get much discount even it came out over 15 mos, not all the m4/3 follow that trend, if you don't flash your camera every year, m4/3 just be fine with you.
BuckarooBanzai: What's the over/under point on the price point of the body only being $600? I say 1 year from now.
I waited OMD for 6 mos (from May2012~Nov2012), the price was the same, the only discont I got was $100 off OMD, that was the same deal in July2012, even as we speak now May 2013, the brand new OMD price the same.
So I think this hot sell ep5 will at it's MSRP for long time.
