brownie314: I assume that the original E-M10 suffers from the 1/100 sec shutter shock? Too bad they could not do a software update to fix that problem for people who purchased the first body.
Isn't 2100 euro a little bit to much if you can get a excellent Sigma for 750 euro? Yes, sure this lens will also be excellent but is the difference worth 1350 euro?
tkbslc: Can you imagine what the mirrorless landscape would look like today if Canon had released an E-M5 or NEX-6 type camera back in 2012 instead of the horribly mediocre EOS M? 3 Years later and they still aren't really trying.
Mirrorless is growing, dSLR is shrinking and 20% of interchangeable lens camera's sold are mirrorless against 80% dSLR. 20% of the market are fast quantities. And it's growing.
I have never seen a picture like in the comparison with normal glass (picture 4). Are they making it up or did they lie before? And why does a 1800 dollar lens looks like plastic fantastic? But probably the optics will be very nice. That's one thing Canon does understand; optics.
topstuff: I think people are so easily suckered into always wanting "bigger, better, faster, more !!".
Sometimes sufficiency is perfect.
The simple truth is that for many of the keyboard warriors on DPR banging on about full frame, the 16mp sensor on the Oly is perfectly good enough.
I bet a lot of you only look at pictures on an iPad anyway... in which case, pixel peeping over FF is a ridiculous waste of time and money.
Take a look at Robin Wong's web blog, and I would wager that many people would be perfectly happy with the IQ he gets from the Oly 16mp cameras....
So just nagging about things you have probably no idea about. LOL
dahod: I could be wrong but as far as I know it still doesn't support phase-detect autofocus and 4/3 lenses.
Maybe it's more difficult than it appears to migrate the technology from the OM-D EM1 but it's disappointing that Olympus continues to ignore their 4/3 users.
The E-M1 sensor is made by Panasonic. The E-M5 and E-M10 sensors are made by Sony.
photo perzon: The flash should tilt to the ceiling. The EVF should tilt. Then it would be more enlightened.
Don't be silly. If it would have that features you would find some other reason. It should be able to make phone calls. The camera should have a microwave functionality. Olympus had to put an medium format sensor in it and so on and so on.
They didn't. They made the E-M1.
Mike FL: So Olympus is leaning from SONY - King of the mirrorless for marketing strategy to make multiple OMDs just liking RX100s to block the competitions.
Better than Panasonic as Panasonic is still could not find one model that is real salable comparing to OMDs.
Panasonic needs to put some efforts for developing 5-axis IBIS which is at least as good as older EM5.
Thanks AR. I can also type it in Dutch if you would like that. :)
Olympus had the strategy of multiple body's long before Sony made camera's. Maybe you think so, but Sony isn't the center of the world.Olympus also doesn't make multiple OM-D's just like the RX100s. We all know that the RX100s is a point and shoot and that the OM-D's are interchangeable lens camera's.
Take a basic photography course and you will know the difference. Good luck!
vesa1tahti: Can't beat the Nikon D7200 (excl. size and weight).
Costs, Focus Peaking, tiltable screen, size, weight, touchscreen, IBIS, longer exposure, faster raw shooting, live bulb and so on. But basically the D7200 is two times more expensive. So whats the point?
But it does say a lot that you have to trow in a two times more expansive Nikon against this new Olympus. Basically you are saying that this Olympus will crush the Nikon competition in it's own range.
tkbslc: Pretty boring upgrade. Kind of like EPL5 to EPL6.
Nice try. Try harder and less obvious.
QuarryCat: first series of mft-lenses are all bad, beside 5.6/9-18 mm - all much worse then the lenses from Panasonicand now the PRO-lenses are good concepts but it's more illusion than reality... and very expensive too.
Olympus mFT is only a shadow from Olympus FT...
so they get more profits.
Don't get me wrong - Olympus has done a lot for digital photography - even more then most other photo-compagnies... they still deliver fantastic colors (even in JPEG), a real good IBIS (but only in E-M5II) and dust proof
but new mFT cameras and lenses are made for 1-3 years and just for beginners and amateurs as bad as Sony does with NEX
A heavy price for profit... and we have to pay for the criminal faults of management!
Nothing wrong with the build quality of Olympus camera's. The higher models are build like tanks just like the E-1/E-3/E-5 used to be. Your experience seems to be not according the reality.
Great news that the imaging division reports a profit. Also great news that Olympus has sold more m4/3 camera's. It's nice to see that there is a profitable market for a company that has other ideas about photography than ff. Keep up the good work Olympus and after the 300mm is released please build a line of zooms between the pro and the kit-zooms.
Thorgrem: So APS-C e-mount is good as dead. The last APS-C lens came in 2013....
Better? At least f/2.8 zooms instead of the slow Sony zooms. And the 'Zeisss' standardzoom is mediocre at best. Sony's APS-C e-mount line is dead and what is available lacks (in most cases) quality and has major holes in the lineup.
No. Mutch more dead. Latest DX lenses came in 2015 and latest EF-S in 2014. Sad for APS-C e-mount users.
So APS-C e-mount is good as dead. The last APS-C lens came in 2013....
memau: Japanese are well-known for fetish of Germany optic makers like Zeiss and Leica, no wonder sony and panasonic pay for these german brand, although I think they don't have to do that, because they can design fairly good lens on their own......
Sony? They bought some nice lensdisigns from Konica Minolta. But can they make nice of great lensdisigns? I doubt it.
bootsofspanishleather: WHAT WOULD YOUR CHOICE BE.
I own a fuji xpro 1 with the 35F1.4 and the 18-55 fuji zoom2.8-4 . I also have a Lumix GX 1 with the external view finder a 25mm Summilux, a 45mm F 1.7 Olympus Zuiko and a medium to long. Lumix zoom. I love them both. I find image stabilization to be so helpful. Most I.S systems are in the lenses. Out of the 5 lenses only the two zooms have it, I am not sure how to proceed since I can't afford to own both. With a 20meg file, an image stabilized body, with the other lenses over shadow the Fuji. 16 megs, no I.S. body, the best viewfinder and the lenses I own! Also the Fuji X Pro 2 is supposed to come out in the first part of 2016. What would your choice be. I'm leaning Fuji but ???
http://www.photozone.de/sony_nex/901-sony1670f4oss You cant deny the fact that Sony sucks monkey balls with lenses with other facts. That's not the way it works. So I cant advice anyone a APS-C e-mount camera. It's a dead end system without any lens development. Sony will only produce FF lenses for e-mount and they are to big and heavy for APS-C and most of the time mediocre.
