Nice IQ actually!
The Photo Ninja: I'll stick with Canon.
I don't know if going back to 12 megapixel resolution (so 2009) to gain some noise performance at 25.600 iso could be called progress...
jackf00: Admin, So still nothing for GH4, when will we have same for GH4 at least ????
My guess is that image would look indistinguishable from the GX7 or GM1.
NeilJones: 12mp is only really good for posting on Facebook. Looks like most photogs out there will be fine! Doh.
@ NeilJonesCongratulations! You won the prize of the most stupid comment of the week!
HarryLally: Does the lens have any sort of image stabilization? It's not mentioned here or in the review. If not, 400mm equiv is an awfully long FL to shoot without IS.
5 axis image stabilization, it's in the spec sheet.
Yuck, 3 sharp megapixels would have looked better!
Is it me or is this last batch of samples much better than the other one? I mean, IQ wise. Those look really terrific.
Hubertus Bigend: I wonder how a smallish EVF with 462 x 346 effective RGB pixels can be "respectable" for a camera that offers 24 MP, let alone so many years after the first mirrorless camera has appeared on the market. Even the best EVF available today still lacks the clear image of a good optical SLR finder that allows precise manual focus without the nuisance of having to switch into a zoom-in mode. But an EVF like the current Olympus finder and probably the Fuji X-T1 finder, too, is at least a step in the right direction. New electronic finders should improve on that, not deteriorate.
Ever heard of focus peaking? I find it much easier to focus in a good EVF than on a normal sized OVF. Maybe on a full frame, it might be ok, but even so, you don't have to be in a hurry. But on a budget priced SLR, with the tiny tunnel pentamirror viewfinder, you'd be hard pressed if you manage to achieve manual focus!
I watched this after dinner, and I almost threw up.
Biowizard: Perfect Timing! Bought my E-M1 from Park Cameras in Burgess Hill just yesterday; today, I charged the battery and started playing, wondering about the 1.0 firmware in the system - and then here comes this! Serendipity, you are my love!
Well, Oly released a FW upfate for the E-M5 well 18 months after the camera was released. The fw added new features, by the way.
Bill from Oregon: Am I correct in assuming that the Panasonic 20mm/F1.7 lens will fit on the Olympus E-M1 camera?
Mike FL: Everybody sue everybody, and here is the Civil (NOT includes the Crime cases) Lawsuit Statistics in 2013:
- Annual cost to the US economy for civil lawsuits: $233 billion
- Estimate annual cost to each US citizen for civil lawsuits: $809
Again, everybody sue everybody...
What??! I will sue you for saying that!
Donnie G: This Sony RX100 III makes more sense to me than any of the Nikon 1 series variants, and I think the price is right for its target audience. Good job Sony!
Too high for what? Much better resolution at base iso or lower noise at high iso, compared to the Nikon 1?
Funny, playing with my GM1 a while ago, I was thinking that it would be great to have a small pop up viewfinder built-in. Sony did it, exactly like I imagined it.Nice!
qwertyasdf: So many complaints? .......Why?
A simplistic body paired with simplistic lens, what not to love?
I think it's quite useful. It might replace my Canon S100 for casual snapshots, while keeping the more serious cameras.
mepaca: Did the guy who took #1 perish while taking the picture?
Depends wether he took the shot with a 50mm or a 600mm :D.
Greynerd: Good to hear a 5x zoom is versatile. Is this range the start of versatility or would a 4x be versatile also?
A 2x zoom is versatile, a 30X is more versatile.
