Ben O Connor: PEN series has a serious issue with pricing. Otherwise, evertyhing is cool on my evaluations.

I wished to own a PEN E-P5 for 1000 euros max, with EVF included 17mm, but what they are asking is %50 more !

Man... come on ! Its fabulous camera but, I don´t print my own bank notes!

Yeah a bit over priced. And over specified! PL5 & PM2 has all the same but screen!!?? And now a bit more advanced PL6 is avaliable just for Japan market.... They did very well to cut of useless compact. To stick with best weather saled best iq enthusiast compact & superzoom. And the sharpest possible pocket p&s... now they should cut PL serie, and make P5 more affordable. Dont even asking for weather sealness or etc.

On 5 Reasons why I haven't used my DSLR for months article (591 comments in total)

They are good:

BUT resolution is still behind an D5200 (or is it?)
BUT a %100 cover OVF of a Pentax K-30 is lacking
BUT if the object moves to anywhere, they are not fast enought to capture
BUT They are not good video cams (well maybe a Gopro / Sony action cam with wifi is better options compare to their vid. )
BUT They are not chep to own ( A decent 600D canon is very afordable nowadays)
BUT there comes an amazing camera on a popular user interface on a Nokia phone (Lumia 1020)

Too many but, for a man who is not a but fettish :)

In reply to:

Ben O Connor: God what specs! What a cam!

The most serious treathe to Olympus XZ-2. Come on olympus! Now give us the XZ-3 which has same sensor body & specs with ep-5, smilar amazing lens as XZ-2 which is 20mm on the wide, 120mm on tele end. And not above f2.8

Please :)

Yeah. But XZ-2 ´s body is so bulky that makes me believe "a M4/3 sensor could fit there !"

And I guess, it could happen, but would not fit pocket or at least can´t fit any lens blades. Should be lens cap.

I wished to own "a mirrorless systme camera" M 4/3 was first interest, then it becoming NEX... but when I check DxO´s ratings, I am confused.

According to them , all these lenses avaliable on mirrorles cam´s are ordinary or trash.

On Leica announces X Vario zoom compact with APS-C sensor article (757 comments in total)
In reply to:

Just another Canon shooter: Combined with the Leica Vario Elmar 18-46 mm f/3.5-6.4 ASPH, it sets completely new standards for imaging quality in the compact segment with outstanding exposures in all situations.

Have not seen the IQ, but the lower exposure (46/6.4 vs. the usual 55/4.6) is a new (low) standard, indeed.

lower exposure?

my friend, have you heard something compact named, "olympus XZ-1"
