Re: Are Full Frame SLRs Obsolete?

I think Olympus is paying people to review their cameras. Ever notice Olympus pictures are taken at some fancy event and most of the pictures are staged in ideal conditions ? All the reviewers are elevating m43rds bodies as if their the greatest thing since sliced bread and yet they are way overhyped. I had the OMD EM5 - the screen on back cracked (well documented), shutter shock meant a large percentage of my pictures were out of focus, the buttons were too small, menu system was a mess, the OLED screen wasn't color accurate, the famous Olympus JPEGs were a mess - over saturated color, red skin tones, warm white balance, too sharp and too much NR. The highlight dynamic range was also poor compared to what reviewers noted. And yet this camera was picked as camera of the year by so many camera review sites - hmmm.
