It should read "street photographer" Eric Kim.

What's the point of mirrorless if the lenses are the same size as DSLR lenses? Sony doesn't even have proper pro-oriented repair facilities like Nikon or Canon. At most these will be expensive toys for the well-heeled, amateur tech geek who likes to match their Sony TV, PlayStation 4 and Sony Alpha camera! Their idea of serious shooting entails sipping Starbucks ordered at the drive thru and shooting urban blandness of generic suburbia!

Jonathan F/2: Beautiful lenses from Sony! No doubt these will be up to the same standards as the Zeiss glass and far ahead of the budget Sigma Art lenses amateur photographers seem to be so fond of.

Sony's collaboration with Zeiss has paid off in spades. These new lenses are state of the art and show just how serious Sony is with photography. They've made the art of picture taking exciting again while pushing the boundaries of cutting edge technology!

Amazing! Sony continues to hit home runs with all these top tier cameras they keep releasing! The A6300 looks to be a contender for camera of the year!

Nikon hit the mark again with this innovated device. I can't wait to see how this performs in the field. Possible candidate for action camera of the year!

Canon hit this one out of the ballpark! Better video than the Sony A7 series and superior performance over the Nikon D5. It's a great time to be a Canon shooter!

Jonathan F/2: This camera is a beauty. If cameras had beauty pageants, the Olympus Pen-F would win the bikini contest for sure!

For the rest of us art aficionados, the Pen-F will be our creative tool of choice. Some people drive value Toyota cars and those who appreciate classic styling and refined craftsmanship drive Mercedes. The Pen-F definitely falls into the latter.

I feel sad for gear heads who can't distinguish real art in the Pen-F instead of the fake imitations that get mistaken as cameras!

Naw, all high maintenance. The Pen-F is a stunner like her mother, the film Pen-F!

It's kind of hard to support into the Sony camera system when they only have a handful of lenses and the ones that are available are grossly overpriced.

This looks like a potential camera of the year!

Both Canon and Nikon stocks are on a downward trend. Interestingly enough, both Olympus and Fuji are seeing positive stock growth, especially with their new announcements this week!

Angrymagpie: Personally I don't find this camera to be overpriced for what it is. Functionally speaking, it pales in comparison with its peers (GX8, EM5ii..etc). But I think Olympus never meant to position this as a performance-oriented camera. Instead, this camera is as much about performance as it is about aesthetics. This camera is about recreating the romanticism of its film-era original. In a way, PEN-F is a bargain. If you think about other cameras that pay a lot of attention to aesthetics, something like the X100T and Leica's digital rangefinders, PEN-F is not too bad. It looks amazing, offers retro-shooting experience via the manual control & the physical layout/handling, and performs well in modern standard.

Olympus has created a camera made for real photographers. The griping seems more from those who are concerned about paper specs and DXO scores. The Pen F is just as much about the user experience as it is the image quality. It's unfortunate the anti-Olympus crowd seems not to value the artistry that this camera is capable of!

ChrisH37: In the UK at least the X-E2S is half the price, and still significantly cheaper even with the excellent 18-55 f2.8-4, so they certainly aren't competitors on price.

The X-E2S is an entry level camera, this new Pen F is a near professional level body so it's priced accordingly.

Awesome specs and samples! Definitely one of the most exciting camera releases for the year!

This looks amazing! I already see this as a potential candidate for Camera of the Year! Good job Olympus!

There are a couple these on the market right now. Some of the "knock off" brands are actually well built and priced right.
