veroman: I find this to be a very odd camera release. Same sensor. Nearly the same body ... though improved. But the real issue for me is that, with the oversized EVF (an absolute necessity; I find ALL LCD-as-viewfinder based cameras to be inferior to optical viewfinder cameras) and a lens, these micros ain't so micro anymore. Weight and size are up. Cost is up, too.
$1,400 for body, 17mm lens and big EVF? Wow. I can think of any number of smallish DLSRs that will give me a lot more camera, lens and quality for the same or even less money.
So I don't really understand this release. I guess beauty and value are in the eyes of the beholder. This beholder would opt for something like the weather-sealed Pentax K-30 over this new Oly. (No, I have no relationship whatsoever with Pentax or any other camera/lens maker.)
Veroman, you may think this camera is odd, and not understand it, but that's because you think a peephole is an "absolute necessity" and Olympus PEN digital cameras DO NOT HAVE PEEPHOLES. Please, go look at cameras that meet your requirements.
Darn, I'm anxious to get the 60mm so I can get rid of my legacy nifty fifties, which just don't seem as sharp as they used to seem.
David Rossberg: "the world’s most impressive lines of lenses, cameras and flashes,"
I'm very very impressed with Sigma overall, but for them to proclaim that their flashes is among the worlds most impressive they must've been exposed to a little too much radiation lately.
Really, you had to go there?
This photo is fine, technically. But O-M-G the subject is awful!
When I first saw the thumbnail I just saw abstract monochrome bands and I thought the image was posted to this challenge by mistake. But the larger views show the subjects quite clearly, and their relative tininess shows the scale of the rocks and churning sea. It's a beautiful composition and a moving depiction of this human-canine relationship.
I love this portrait.
That's a beautiful sharp photo of the dog's expression, but it would be easier to see if the photo were cropped drastically. Besides the dog, you just need the woman's hand and enough of the tire to see what the dog is jumping through. What a face!
Nice portrait, but shouldn't it be rotated clockwise?
Not a lot of expression, but it's a beautiful composition.
Give silicon some credit, and not just in the camera.
I'm looking forward to Nikkor lenses in Micro Four Thirds mounts.
