I hope Ricoh have already a slimer version of this camera (drawing board) with fixed zoom 24-50mm, 2.8-4.0.
I admit I don't like Leica because it's a monster living from the past glory. Only fools like doctors, lawyers and other "special" people buy cameras like Leica Vario X or whatever the name is....simply Leica means a shame to me, that all.
I like the red dot like a bull likes a red flag...
DPR, do you have this lens already? If so, when do we see the samples? Thanks.
Very creative, like them all.
How come the black version is longer when both lenses have exactly the same parameters? (30mm and infinity...)
Excellent pics! #5 my favourite.
Hugo808: 20-40? What bloody use is that?
Oh Lord! This is not a superzoom section....I will use it!
If the lens is superior to all other lenses then the price is right! Let's wait for tests...I hope Pentax under Ricoh will redo most of the their current (weird) lenses...
Almost a perfect lens for me! Now I can think about Pentax!
Archiver: 1226 comments as of this posting. This has to be a record for DPReview announcements, even bigger than the Adobe Creative Clod announcement. It shows how much interest and opinion there is for a camera of this nature.
No way! 1939 for EM-1...http://www.dpreview.com/news/2013/10/28/complete-control-olympus-om-d-e-m1-review-posted?utm_campaign=internal-link&utm_source=news-list&utm_medium=text&ref=title_0_26
forpetessake: Retro in art, vogue, music isn't surprising, because all those areas are highly subjective and volatile. Retro in technology is absurd -- it's an attempt of resurrecting dead evolutionary solutions, which were once restricted by the state of the technology but long have been discarded.
Not too many cameras have PASM, instead they have PSAM, MAPS and that's the big difference....:)
stevens37y: I'd prefer a Praktica MTL3 (M42!) with FF sensor. :)
#3 is my favourite!
KonstantinosK: In the last picture (side - on) it looks like a Pentax K-5! A size comparison would be interesting. You don't need to have a huge body for full frame after all.
Looks too chunky to me, hoped for a slimmer body...let's wait few days guys!
To DPR staff- why don't you have photo-contests too?
photofan1986: Mmmhh, I don't see a picture that I could not have taken with my "lowly" crop EM-5.
WHAT IS E-M5? :)
Great camera for superzoom lovers, I am sure there will many takers...
