garyknrd: For a industry that is dying. This has got to be the best time in history to be an amateur photographer.

It's not quite dying yet, just coughing and wheezing a bit, maybe a little shaky in the knees.

Still no hint at the resolution ?

Looks like this camera has gone into production ! Yay !!

If development was stopped where did the 20mpx sensor (GX8) come from and why abandon the organic research ? This is disappointing that video is the only area that deserves R&D.

Here's that slippery slope again, "This decision only affects ... "
I don't understand how leaving one country in a global market helps the product line. Either you sell cameras or you don't. Isn't the EU just that, a "union" for purposes of marketing ?

Battery life - why do the Olympii get so noticeably hot when shooting ?
There's a whole lot of power being wasted in the form of heat in these cameras. Design technology needs to advance in the direction of better circuit efficiency before we will ever get better battery life.

Hopefully this is the direction of the future, it makes so much sense.

"slow news day"

Wow, Pentax has dealers ? Ricoh website search says "none" in US. email from Ricoh support said only B&H in NYC for 645Z. So that's "dealer" not 'dealers".

In reply to:

Frank_BR: It's easy to blame Leica for banding, but I suspect the problem is within the sensor that Leica purchases from third parties. Banding is basically the result of interference of clock and control signals over the analog signals (image signals). In a CMOS sensor, the analog amplifiers and A/D converters are internal to the sensor, so the interference that causes banding has to be controlled already at the sensor design. It is precisely here that Sony sensors stand out, and explain why Sony and Nikon cameras have virtually nonexistent banding. When it comes to banding, Leica and Canon are in real trouble because they don't want/cannot use Sony sensors.

Banding with Sony sensors is well documented in Olympus cameras.

With all the hype, secrecy, delays and every possible marketing tactic I hope it does not disappoint. After all this it's got a lot to live up to. Fingers crossed so hard they hurt !

In reply to:

EthanP99: "with the same performance level as a mirrorless camera"

like a pentax Q mirrorless?

In the strictest sense, Pentax Q is not "mirrorless", it is not based on a system that ever had a mirror. Same for the Nikon 1, there was never a 1" reflex (mirrored) design.

Classic FL range and wide constant aperture, nice.
Kit lens perhaps ?
The only thing missing is a manual aperture ring.

RedDog Steve: More primitive lenses ? no thanks ...

I can manage without AF, aperture control or OIS.
In modern days there is no excuse not to identify the lens to the camera for purposes of IBIS and EXIF.
