I want to know what we can expect at the Photokina! No exciting rumours, no spy photos?
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....
As long as they don't release anything wonderful like Vario X, I am OK with Leica:)
We need some Photokina news asap....
DenWil: I guess I'm lucky to be the only photographer in the world who does not have any use for time exposures in, lol, crop mode.
No, you are not alone!
Martyn McMad: Just had mine delivered today, not even out the box yet !
Check the box for bright spots...:)

Jogger: Doesnt Zeiss have a lens with a similar focal length?
This one has AF!
JEROME NOLAS: How much was it new?
How much was it new?
This is off topic but very important-we need some major news/test/whatever...Thanx for great work guys, we are so spoiled, that's why we complain (bitch)sometimes...
I hope next model will have 1" sensor and fixed lens...
Yes, creative and inspiring!
