I know who took this one. Your style is very identifiable. Great shot.
tvstaff: I submitted a picture of a beautiful woman. I guess it depends on the "Big Boy".... Beautiful women have been "Big Boy" toys since the beginning of time. I guess alex326 can't understand the concept as he deleted my entry! Enjoy your plastic toys! <ROFL>
Posts like this make me despair for humanity.
Best viewed full size. :D
Ahhh, just the thing for my E-M5.
lightmatters: /sarcasm onPentax doesn't know mirrorless is the future. See what Sony is doing?/sarcasm off
So, you bought a mirrorless about two years ago?
Sirandar: It's embarrassing that none of this made it to the OMD 5 mk1.... and no explanation why not.
I think a lot of the stuff also requires an electronic shutter, which the E-M5 doesn't have. Firmware can't add hardware. There was a very big shift in electronics used between the E-M1 and 5.
Yay. Some cool stuff coming.
Stephen787: can i fit in 50-150mm pro lens on it? can i fit in the cheap 300mm lens on it? that will be great to spy on neighbour.
No you can't.
Martin.au: I wonder why only those lenses. It can't be weight, as the 45mm for example weighs less than the 12mm, and the body cap lenses are very light.Perhaps it can only stabilise a field of view up to a certain focal length.
Ahh, there we go.To ensure that the 3-axis gimbal’s movements are unrestricted, the lenses are required to fit the gimbal in terms of weight and size. Not all existing lenses fit these requirements, which is why not all MFT lenses are compatible with the ZENMUSE X5 Series.
That means there's quite a few lenses that will work. The bodycaps for starters.
I suspect we'll see more lenses added over time.

Love this shot!
rjaywallace: Forgetting price for the moment, how will its performance compare to the Leica Q compact or the Panasonic Lumix GX8? When will DPReview publish in-depth evaluations of the Leica Q and the GX8 compacts?
Why yes, owner of the "Sony FE 24-70mm F4 ZA OSS Carl Zeiss Vario Tessar T*":P
QuarryCat: but the quality of Olympus cameras is down to a basis level, Cameras look very quickly very used just from taking them out of the photo-bag or from the sweat on your fingers - E-M5 was worse - E-M5II is even more worse and E-M1 is not really better...I had them all for a year - not any longer.
the same but even worse with lenses, first they cut the sunshades out of the lens set and charged crazy extra prices - now all the lenses are not ZUIKO anymore, no famous Japan production - but China plastic
Lol quarrycat. Love the fact that in your spiel on you profile page you say "– so the first step is to accept other opinions – as strange as they might seem", followed by bagging people out as fanboys because they have a different opinion to you. Methinks thou doth project too much.
Mike FL: "12.3% increase in net sales year-on-year" is almost having NO increasing "year-on-year".
Olympus reported in Yen, but Yen lost 14% "year-on-year" as seem from below:
In the other words, if Olympus is using USD for reporting, it will be "2% *decrease* in net sales year-on-year".
Yes, that's right, decreasing instead of increasing.
Whatever makes you happy Mike.
Just a Photographer: Now all mirrorless camera manufacturers are profitable.Sony, Fuji and now Olympus all presented black figures recently for their imaging business.
While Nikon and Canon are suffering. Its not that these DSLR manufacturers make losses on selling systems, but they do loose heavily in profitability and marketshare over the recent years.
Times are changing.
I would expect Panasonic to be joining the rest of the club soon. Their new releases look a lot less experimental, and a lot more focussed and good value than they did a few years back. No more messing around with subpar EVFs and quirks. Now you can buy a G7 for $800, with an EVF larger than most 35mm DSLRs.
