Another action camera? Why?
Jogger: Its a bit too large for what it is. Might as well get something like an RX1 at that size.
It is a Sony..., bleh!
It's so quite before Photokina that I am affraid we all get disappointed...
Most of them are great! #1 is my funny!
Who is using this stuff???
New lenses are coming so...anyway, any price drop is a good news.
Love this shot...
Yet they all still make cameras and lenses nobody likes...not so many choices as it seems!
JEROME NOLAS: I want to know what we can expect at the Photokina! No exciting rumours, no spy photos?
This is at least funny!http://newcameranews.com/2014/08/30/olympus-introduces-new-camera-we-think/

Is the disco era coming back? Great gift for a circus clown!
milek: The screen, the control dial and the IS are definite improvements over the previous generation. So good job on that (finally).
Why Olympus still stubbornly refuses to build the flash into the body of an entry-level model is beyond me though. Olympus, get it into your thick skulls: *nobody* wants to carry that pointless external toy flash with them -- I've literally never used it, not a single time, because I never have it with me. They finally fixed it in OM-D E-M10 and you would've thought that they would extend it to the rest of the range, but I guess that was too much to ask. Panasonic managed to squeeze one in the tiny GM1, damn it!
The decision not to bundle the camera with the pancake zoom seems similarly short-sighted. Or is that again going to be a US-only "feature", like with E-M10? If so, could the "genius" responsible for these decisions please finally be fired?!
Yes,why not a built in flash? I use it twice a year buy it must be there! Lots of sunshine in Japan, I guess.....
Any news is good news...
joyclick: It is high time they gave us fixed lens FF compacts instead of tinkering around with small sensors.
You are right! But then, they would be killing a goose who gave them golden eggs. The price for RX1 is laughable, so they make a small body and very special and very expensive lens to justify the cost of a camera. Where's Kodak and others when you need to kill Japanese competition?
Too big for my taste, they could put 1"' or m3/4 sensor in it with 24-70mm f2.8-4.0 lens. That would would be a killer camera.
Amazing pictures. Now we need some amazing photography news...:)
Meh, only 200MP? My cat would be upset if I bring this camera home....
