Sam Carriere: The deal-breaker for me is that Sony is too cheap and disrespectful of consumers to even provide a manual anymore. They just provide a totally inadequate "get started" guide.Said it before and I'll say it again: Sony is a company that deserves to fail.
I don't see the need for a manual to operate a modern digital camera, there are more than enough info on their LCD display.
ntsan: For people complaining the DoF is too deep to test CAF, Gorden from Cameralab have test the E-M1 with 90-250mm F2.8 for the same event http://cameralabs.com/reviews/Olympus_OMD_EM1/sample_images.shtml
And the lady on the horse back look OFF! ISO 1600 looks terrible too!
Interesting camera, let's see how the new sensor performs!
Tower: How many people to spend that money to get this sort of cameras?
A lot more than you think. :-)
1" BSI-CMOS sensor is interesting, let wait and see more samples from the real world.
Peter KT Lim: Today if Zeiss are Sogoood, than they no need to be a third party lens maker, where is their proud Contax Camera? Clearly show their product is not competitive in today environment.
It is a laugh that today still got some great lenses discovery master post their so call expert experience on site telling Z is good and C is not so good.
In general Z is definitely better than C! :-)
Arsen: I have been waiting for this review and had a feeling that it would do real well.. I needed a second body to compliment my D800E and only wanted a camera without the OLPF because once you use a camera without one, I can't imagine using one with it. This is a nice camera to take with a small lens and get excellent results when I want to leave the big brother home.
Really? I bought 3 cameras last year and D800E is the least I use. The other 2 is a D4 & a RX1 which both have AA filter. :-)
SRT3lkt: so... the EVF is not compatible with NEX series but RX1?
Yes, a $450 DC with a $450 EVF!!!
Up to now ACR 7.4 for photoshop is not yet available for update. :-(
Highest shutter speed @ 1/4000s (F5.6) & 1/3200s (F4) is an incredible achievement for leaf shutter! Fill flash will never be so easy with the RX1!
marike6: By no means am I a luddite, but having used several decent EVFs and OVFs, I can't understand why the photographers on here are so anxious to see the demise of the OVF. Is a mirror-box so large that you must do away with it? Peaking is cool, and WB preview is fine, but I would still rather actually see what the lens sees than have a representation of the image created for me. Reality is always better than virtual reality, especially when the light gets low. :-)
I think part of the reason is...http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1021&message=40411362
Interesting concept and curious to see how it performs especially in image quality.
