So does tyhe lx5 or 7 really have such good dynamic range? Panny skintones never flatter though...

The camera should have been focus locked on the people as the subject here, the forehround rocks have been locked onto instead. Or they could have stopped down, it hardly justifies a two thousandth !

This one is really good, i think there is more human error in the poorer shots than actual weakness in the lens, sensor and jpeg engine so far imho :-)

Hmm having trouble seeing this noise y'all talkin about. I do see a very good dynamic range for a compact zoom camera and no notable optical aberrations at eq 24mm......i would have stopped down this shot or used a polarising filter.

Thanks for pointing out they focused locked on the can ! Dof -focus bracketing should be a feature on advanced compacts imho.

Yeah daqk, they have bothered to hold the camera still and get a pin sharp image even at hihgh iso! A lot of the less sharp shots are hand held at 160th or slower, despite ois, get it right and remember how to take photos dp peeps!

This image tackles a very broad histogram of light intensities really well. Okay detail too.

Having just been through doing post-bokeh onto a set of mobile phone shots, you can see how easy it will be to push more blur in post from this camera. On the fence, but nearly blting!

On Nikon 1 V3 First Impressions Review preview (646 comments in total)

From the sample images with the lens as delivered, I cannot see the point in such a small sensor on a MILC apart from Nikon creaming very good gross margin from fan boys, and 'soccer moms' who would be better served by a quality compact. Oh yeah you can pay 900 dollars/euro for a fast lens.

if you don't like retro, which has floated Olympus's boat of late, then you can have a smaller Full frame which fits a huge range of lenses and legacy stuff that grand dad had.

Camp Freddy: A pretty ugly concoction, but somehow Olympus ( and Sony therefore as major share holder) are committed to a superzoom and retro PEN / OM styling.

Better off doing an mFT 16mpx chip with a non interchangeable 24-120 collapsing zoom for around the 700 USD mark IMHO. Let Fuji amd Panny fight it out with Nikon following soon after in the superzoom sector.

@caverd - yeah the 16mpx sensor probably the first couple of Olympus (sony built) sensors which are mFT optimised or you could say that they will never see light of day in the four thirds format .....which differs in software due to the distortion mFT lens mount distance creates but then also on chip image acquisition can be improved on chip. FT is dead for better or for worse.

averagjoe: It's obvious that the guy is an adventurer/daredevil, and not a photographer.
He deserves kudos for pulling off the stunt, but he'd get a better reception from photographers if his image quality matched his bravado.

In the pyramid shots, http://raskalov-vit.livejournal.com/131308.html he shows better composition that the majority of pixel peeping D4s owners on this site!

super duper, fitted as standard in all Olympus mFT / FT bodies.....

In reply to:

Swarbs: I owned the Olympus E-300 and E-3 and a number of lenses, flash unit, ect. The store where I purchased all of my equipment, Henry's, the major photographic retailer in Canada, stopped carrying any Olympus supplies, such as batteries or anything else. I felt betrayed by Olympus, so I brought back all of my equipment and traded them in for Canon (7D).
This is a shame as I really liked Olympus, but due to their lack of interest in the DSLR formate, I didn't want to wait till I couldn't have parts replaced or upgrade the equipment when new technologies are developed.
I can't understand why a company would throw it's customers under a truck like that!

Olympus have no where near the volume sales of Can-Niko so do not come down in margin . So many of the surviving specialist chains dropped their DSLR range at least and are look-warm on mFT.

In the same breath we can bemoan the loss of the independent, knowledgeable equipment retailer. There ain't enough cash in small.

Is no-one going to mention the advantages of MORE depth of field in low light conditions with the latest mFT systems?

f2.4 on an FF is often as good as it gets for sharpness and getting what you actually want in the area in focus.

On Olympus m.Zuiko 17mm F1.8 first impressions and samples article (255 comments in total)

Very underwhelmed with the examples apart from the bored bloke with the beard shots, which show a use for this focal legnth at least.

faster than zooms, for those who must change lenses IMHO. 12mm a better bet .

On Olympus announces Stylus XZ-10 enthusiast compact article (198 comments in total)

Hmm, after a quick look at this and the price suggested, I think Olympus would have been better on doing an "epm" version of the larger XZ's to this type of price, or better yet, putting a fixed retracting lens onto the 16mpx mFT sensor, perhaps at a crop to a smaller mpx ( as some panasonic mFT's actually do)

In reply to:

arqomx: would like to see the noise performance for both XZ-2 and XZ-10. My XZ-1 doesn't fare well from ISO 800 and above >. < (though with f2.7 lens you'll find it seldom to crank the ISO more than 400)

Definetly looks a lot better on the newer XZ2 samples, , but remember it is f1.8 with IBIS so you do not need to crank up beyond 1200. Unless you are taking black cats on moonless nights of course.
