The controls look very good for those with dexterity problems,
like the aged or Parkinson's sufferers.
This could be a very nice camera for rich old folk.

I applaud this excellent idea.
I hope it is satisfactory in-use.

Strange that the samples on the advert include no point sources of light ... or did DPReview just pick a selection and miss that?

Sounds like a great lens, but about time Sigma!
I've avoided getting the PL 25mm F1.4 because I don't much like the focal length, ...

The wide one looks like a great thing, as long as the lens is good enough.

bishop412: Bad graphic on slide #1. If you have to make a faux reflection on an imaginary surface, the two reflected objects should not overlap. Bad Photoshop work, DPReview.

Eagle-eyes Bishop!

Timur Born: Now the really interesting question is which cameras do not use line skipping (on sensor) during Live View? When the source image is lower resolution than the EVF then all the extra EVF resolution is only useful for playback (which is based on a full resolution image).

For example, the E-M1 does not make much use of its 2.3M EVF during Live View. In practice during Live View you cannot make out any difference to the 1.44M EVF of the E-M5 (MK1) when it comes to recognizing fine details of a scene.

Timur stop flogging your dead-wrong horse.
The E-M1 EVF (& VF-4) shows more detail (in all modes) than E-M5 (& VF-2)

Any chance of keeping camera straps off the NEWS dropdown list?

Jonath: I disagree that the size of the camera and battery life are so intimately linked and that battery life is somehow sacrificed for body size or even that there needs to be some kind of tech revolution in batteries... there already has been.

What mirrorless manufacturers need to do is to innovate (or just borrow ideas from smartphones). Mirrorless battery designs and battery form-factors are very much from a by-gone age and they look like camera batteries going back years - just lazyness and an area where none of their innovation $ have been spent. They're all portly rectangular boxes.

Meanwhile phone manufacturers are making faster-charging (Galaxy S6 - 30% charge in <15 mins), flexible, thin, relatively low volume batteries that can we integrated cleverly into their phones and squeezing 5,000 mAh (Asus Zen Phone) in.

Lets see some new batteries that are cleverly integrated into the body, that can be stand alone fast charged with USB and hold 5,000 mAh each. Lets see innovation!

Totally agree with Jonath.
Personally I'd like to see batteries which ARE the grips. Bigger grip = bigger battery,
or bottom plate batteries.

Has the Nikon disappeared from existence, or is it not 2015 enough?

Not currently trendy but good to see Sony not abandoning their SLST (no it is NOT translucent it is semi-transparent) cameras.
