photo nuts: The last shot looks more like a painting than a photo. Hmmm...
Did you read the article headline?
Hmm…so bigger pixels are better? Does that mean the Mp war is over and my 5D mk1 is back in vogue?
Christopher G: "The lack of a native ISO 100 could be limiting for using the camera in a studio setting."
I thought it had a low setting that is iso 100? I need it for studio strobes and syncho sun. Is it still iso 200? I would have to wait again for m4/3s next generation. That would be a bummer since I have been waiting since the first m 4/3s
If you want native low ISO of 100 you will sacrifice good hi ISO.
DELETED88781: Small sensor is not good regardless of any feature.Entry level FF DSLR has 4 times bigger sensor and only 200g more weight. Cost? Almost the same.
Entry level FF is a bit of an oxymoron.
Chev Chelios: Why can’t Olympus decide on a control layout and stick with it? They keep moving the main dials around. The did the same going from the EP2 to EP3. They’ve been designing cameras for so long you’d think they’d have an idea of their preferred ergonomic design by now. Or is it just me?
Look at Canon (just for example, and I’m not a fanboy). The Mode dial, Rear dial, and Front dial on their prosumer line have remained in the same place for 13+ years or so.
Canon do the same. It's inevitable that they will refine the layout but frustrating too if you own more than one body and the controls are quite different or - even worse - only a little different. Mind you Canon seemed to have settled on a good layout for their entry level cameras some time ago.
eviskz0r: Quite frustrating that almost every review on the web doesnt give a clear idea at how AF works with 4/3 lenses. Being a 300 f2.8 4/3 zuiko owner, should I expect from the EM1 an upgrade or a downgrade from E5 in terms of S-AF and C-AF?
This is only a preview.
davids8560: Sometimes I feel like there are just too many cameras. And this new one from Olympus looks exceptional. But right now, at this particular moment, if I was permitted to have only one digital camera, Ii think it would have to be the Nikon D600.
Except for the oil on the sensor issues.
Hugo808: As someone who is looking for a new small walkabout camera, I have to wonder what the advantage of this would be over the Canon 100D?
With that I get a proper viewfinder, a bigger sensor and the lenses are cheaper. There must be something that drags people to m4/3's but I can't fathom it.
The 100D has a sensor that is 64% larger than 4/3 sensor in area (which is what counts).
ZhanMInG12: I'm not an M43 shooter (Fuji, then Canon and Leica) and has never owned an Olympus camera before, but I'm excited about the EM1. I had a chance to shoot an EM5 last month and was amazed by AF performance and general control fluidity. It's as fast as my 7d - and thus probably faster than almost all APS-C DSLRs. I can shoot basketball games and extreme sports events with an EM5 and not feel hampered by the camera.
These cameras may have smaller sensors, but they are very well built, nicely thought-out and capable bodies for a range of work. That's why M43 is going to stay around, at least until Sony and Fuji gets their lens lineups sorted out.
Fuji have a very clear lens roadmap.
babalu: Stunning photo. What a great lens!
Boky: And Canon? What happened to Canon?
Oh well, I suppose they came up with, and then perfected, the process of milking their customers to the n-th. degree by selling vastly overpriced gear that is either intentionally crippled in firmware, or completely incapable of achieving a consistent and reliable focus.
Rubbish. My 5D and 50D are perfectly capable and good value.
TClair: I'm waiting for the APS-C sensor version of this camera, come on Nikon!
It's called a D3200
Dave Luttmann: Looks awesome. Blows the G16 away
But DPReview think the G16 will blow this away with it's fast af.If Canon put an evf on the G17...
Not sure that it is elegant and DPReview doubts it's performance. However it looks very good on paper. Now about that senor size Nikon. You guys have a good relationship with Sony.
KLN24: I haven't upgraded my DSLR in years. I own a Canon 5D (original 5D) and it still works wonderfully. If I upgrade it will only be to a used markII, beacause of my budget. But for around the same price I could get the x100s which I would love to have. Unsure whether to upgrade my DSLR or just buy the x100s. Any advice?
No Brainer. I have had my 5D mk1 for about 4 years now and 2.5 years ago bought the X100. The 5D does give richer files but the X100 is a little wonder in it's own right. Only real advantage of MkII is more MP but that means bigger files. I say keep the MK 1 (like me) and get the X100s. After a bit of adapting you will be glad you did. Handheld night photography anyone? (but best to have af on af-c). Shoots really good jpgs but I now shoot mainly in Raw ( as with all my cameras).
Well Canon decided with the G15 to ditch the swivel screen just as Nikon took up the idea. Anyway I think this look good. Bright lens and with decent reach. Can't overrule the laws of physics. If only they could make the OVF 95% or have a decent Evf. I had wonderful images out of my G11 but it was poor in low light. This should be much better.
curious to see how it outperforms "smaller " sensors, like the Ricoh GR with an APS-C.
And how surprised i am to see that even in the corners, like the watch, the brushes, fine font at bottom, the Ricoh outperforms both the RX 1 and the RX1R.(by quit a bit too)
What is wrong here?
Please DPR, i think you need to do this fotoshoot for both the sonys again to give them the honour they deserve.
It seems the focus is at a different point for different cameras in the studio scene making comparisons difficult. In some places the X100s look sharper. The resolution chart shows a clear advantage to the RX1r over the RX1. Anyway real world images are where it really counts.
D Preview. Enough with the previews. Give me a with a full review only please. I can wait. I am not interested to read the preview and review.
Mortgage house, sell wife, downsize car, buy $12,000 lens, get gym membership to help hold it. Shoot spy photos of ex wife and ex car from now empty house. Can't afford petrol so sell car and get bicycle. Can't take huge lens on bicycle. Sell lens (taken 100 shots only) for $10,000. Get life back. Buy Panasonic FZ 200 super zoom with 25 -600mm f2.8 zoom.
Looks fine but I would expect if a buyer was looking for a Fuji interchangeable lens camera they would also want an EVF. Would this have been better as a fixed zoom lens camera? I guess the price point will be the main differentiator and enable those with less cash to enter the Fuji system.
