On Consumer SLR Camera Roundup (2014) article (41 comments in total)

These comparisons are meaningless because it doesn't matter which is best, the winner will always be a canon or nikon.

What a lost opportunity ?? All Olympus had to do was put a small viewfinder on this like panny LF-1 ,call it Trip digital and you've got a sure fire winner.

Absolutic: I dont understand why Amazon's preorder page shows April as delivery date, while dpreview article here suggest February. I am going on vacation in Mid February so it makes difference to me

Still $340 less than uk

Cost $999/£999 $999=£628 at today's exchange rate. Yet another rip off for the British consumer.

I thought what a great camera Olympus had made when I got my xz-1. Now the lens unit has appeared on the Pentax mx-1 & now the Casio I have to wonder did olympus make any of the xz-1 ? I suspect all three come out of the same factory. Now olympus have launched the stylus 1 how long before the 28-300 lens unit appears on other makes ?

Digital Suicide: 100D in white would be a "genius" move from canon to keep their customers.. :D

Wow, a Canon 100d in white. But then again I could buy a Pentax K50 in 120 colour combinations. 20 body colours x 6 grip colours.

On Nikon D5300 preview (278 comments in total)

I read these comments and wonder how you all managed to take photos 30 years ago when there was a thing called film & cameras had lenses that you had to manually focus & if you were lucky you could spot meter in addition to the average metering !!!

I stopped carrying a dslr when I got an Olly xz-1wiyh vf-2. I thought it would be nice to have a longer zoom and built in vf. Think Olympus have answered my prayers.

On Panasonic DMC-GM1 preview (631 comments in total)

I think for the vast majority of people the dmc LF1 is a much better buy. 28-200 equiv zoom, built in v/f which is actually very good and I really doubt if anyone can tell difference in iq due to sensor size.

Piggy the bad: I have to wonder is the Panny fz200 a better overall bet ?

This isn't such a silly question. Having bought last year an Olympus xz-1 I very rarely carrying my Pentax k10 with me. The performance of these small sensors is so good that I don't think you can draw a comparisons like you could with different film sizes.

yabokkie: still confused who is who. do you sure the camera tested is really 700D?

Canon name their cameras differently for Europe, Americas, Asia to stop grey importing.

o I don't need a full frame after all ?? The next thing is, is this Oly going to produce better results than say an EPL5 or xz1/2 ???

I think this could be very bad news. Remember when Konica/Minolta announced they were working with Sony. The next thing that happened was Sony took them over. I fear very much for Hasselblad as a company now this tie up has been announced. I sincerely hope I'm wrong.

Jesper beat me to it.
