Marc Rogoff: Wow! Fantastic update...I can now use all my old 4/3 glass again. Probably as fast as it ever was... Very happy indeed...
The value of the $500 50-200 SWD I bought has just gone UP !THANK YOU OLYMPUS !
Digitall: Don't forget the new Update fix 1.5, to repair a problem found in 1.4.
NOT FOR EM-1 OR EM-10 !
N. B. Fix V1.5 is NOT for the above but the EP-5
schawo: Any tests of the new FW with legacy 4/3 lenses like the 50-200 SWD?
Just had a quick test with a 50- 200 SWD -- MUCH BETTER --FAST AND SEEMS TO LOCK ON TO DIFFICULT SUBJECTS EASIER ! VERY IMPRESSESD !
lap777: Now every D600 has un unlimited time shutter warranty. Who's gonna cry now?
Hi AR,I still wish I had never bought a FUJIFILM X10 Orb machine -- it took ages for the company to admit the fault and a lifetime for me to wait for the " FUN" to return to using the camera !
Julian: A shame its only open to "professional photographers".
It's a shame it only open to " the young "
Thank you for the post !
Thank you - I've just phoned all known PERTH -Australia OLYMPUS fans to let them know of this post !
Airless: Bullet holes image is horribly underexposed. Has the guy never heard of photoshop or at least high ISO?
Like your humor ! - Looks like you have been taken seriously ?
If Nikon has offened you - make a donation to Conservation Education and " Don't shoot to kill leave your RIFLE at home and shoot with a CANON !! "
Fantastic portrait !
NIKON YOU NEED TO OPEN A CONSERVATION FOUNDATION TO PUT LARGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY BACK INTO NATURE !!
SOONER RATHER THAN LATER--- LIKE NOW !!
Anfy: As an animal rights advocate and Nikon user I feel very bad for this news. I am seriously considering complete switch to another brand, mainly Olympus and Panasonic which, as to my knowledge, do not sell hunting devices. Or am I wrong?
PLEASE Don't change ask Nikon to consider a "LARGE " donation to Elephant, Gorilla, Tiger ,Rhino,Cheeta,Lateral thinkers -----etc. conservation !
rallyfan: This makes me much less interested in μ4/3 bodies. I'd like to see a comparison between this and the OMD, but for a change I'd like to see SPORTS SHOTS rather than a bridge in the samples.
If this is quicker to focus and keeps subjects tracked well, I want one. The lenses aren't an issue, I've got them. I want a small body that can track a moving object. I don't care about scenery shots and buildings etc. Moving objects, focus tracking -- that's it.
Will this beat the μ4/3 bodies at sports shots? If so, I'm in.
Small camera + Huge lens = !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
xxbluejay21: What a horrible camera. Canon really are getting desperate.
Not only desperate ! but stupid marketing .
In another form it was sugested that it would make a good campanion to a 5D so that EF lenses could be shared - perhaps if they had a 35mm but as a 5D owner I wouldn't Buy ! This camera will only be bought as a "ONLY CAMERA "with a packaged zoom and I suspect that most Camera salespersons would offer a FUJI X /Sony NEX or a real camera like a D7100 as an alternative ( even a greater cost )!
Holger Drallmeyer: So how is this one not going to make me buy a X100, X100S, X-e1. Oh yeah, it's way cheaper? It's not about the money if it was I'd use a pinhole camera.
Canon, I love ya but pleeease fire your R&D staff, someone needs to wake up.
Canon needs a new Marketing Director - they are not in tune with the people - ask Nikon users they had the same problem a few years ago - made a change - and are now doing very well most of the time !I would love Canon to make a go of it but they are NOT !
lightandday: Who wants this - not me !
Excuse the replication above !
I doubt not many 5D users would want this camera. Canon should have used their resources in making something like a Nikon D7100 - this camera will be a failure -it's smaller so what ?
I would say not many 5D users would want this camera - the cost of producing this camera would have been more sensibly used in producing something like a Nikon D7100 . This camera will be a failure as it will not satisfy the market demand and very few Canon users will buy it - size - I doubt it !
Who wants this - not me !
lightandday: What credibility has this Company ( DXO ) got ? i.e. Are Nikkors really that better than Canon EF lenses as demonstrated in their "TEST" results ?Should I be selling my digital Canon digital camerasand lenses and buying Nikon/Nikkor equipment ?Are they( DXO ) independent with no financial benefit received for their results and are there any other non commercial "TESTING "organisations that perform and publish their results ?
I thank you for you thoughts - I was really shattered to see how good Nikon is and using Canon for digital and previously using Nikon film equipment (and still do ! ) I wondered about the crediabilty of DXO and was rather hoping that they didn't have any !
