Aaron MC: To those hatin' on the lens, y'all be crazy. I'm totally happy to plunk down the cash on a lens like this. Olympus is finally giving me what I've been wanting for THREE YEARS. Good lenses FTW!
I am upset by the lack of a lens hood, though. That's pretty cheap on Olympus' part.
Michele Kappa, +1 !!!!!
Narek Avetisian: I've got 2 questions:1. The HLD-6 battery pack/holder has a AC power adapter, AC-3, as an option. Does it provide a standard jack or a proprietay one? I found that AC-3 costs almost $300 - tooooo much for just a simple power adapter, i think.
2. Is it possible by any way to shoot video with FL-600R flash with video LED light on while using the EMA-1 audio input accessory on? Thing is that EMA-1 blocks the hotshoe.
P.S. thanks for a great article!!!!!

LaFonte: iso 3200 better than A55? Is this right?
not only A55 :) I compared to Canon 1D Mk IV in JPEG and it was better than fullframe Canon!
ZecaMuzzio: I have also downloaded the files from Canon EOS Mark VI to compare. Guess what? Olympus OM-D beat it! all the way from ISO 3200 up to ISO 25600!Amazing!
Canon EOS _WHAT_ Mark VI? LOL:))))
Lens distortion is just HUGE!!! Obviously lens is not as quality as one would expect...
Mk7: Kodak is but the latest in a long line of once-mighty American companies destroyed by stupid, incompetent, short-sighted, self-serving, greedy managers and executives. But to hear the executives tell it, their downfall was caused by taxes, regulations, health care, welfare… BS!!
Never fully investing in a Velvia-beater? Brilliant. Still pouring hundreds of millions of R&D dollars into film, in the 21st century? Genius. Abandoning the enthusiast digicam market? Bravo. Gluttonous executives roll the dice, American workers pay the price. RIP Kodak.
if one was looking at Kodak pages in social networks, there was nothing but pocket camcorders!!! It was more like a little chinese company's page, than Kodak's... Now Kodak Russia's page is full of old pictures from company's great past...RIP Kodak :(
Narek Avetisian: G1X's VIDEO SUCKS!!!
of course! but it's not just worse than in camcorders, but also worse than in many other still cameras, sometimes in lower range!
G1X's VIDEO SUCKS!!!
