Just break it down I'm not dismissing it but it's really a £600 odd camera maybe a tad more if you add the weather sealing.

It's competing with semi pro DSLR's so competition is tough here.
No onboard flash (major blunder)
Fast fps is just a number with locked AF and metering not that useful
Focus by wire MF another throwback from the 90's

Rest of the camera is some retro appeal thing that doesn't even look like an OM camera anyway. Fairly bog standard most of the spec.

Sure the sensor looks good (let's wait for more reliable sources for DR testing)

Nobody says it's "bad" but hell DPR gold awards are given away like Candy at a shop. I for one would like to see them take the gloves off a bit more at times.

+1 but AUD$600-700.Pen is struggling at $425 kit in major stores (Kmart, Target)... DPR got carried out by the retro-look--is-in...IMO
