Okay, I guess the OP was just meant to drive traffic to that guy's website and nothing else.

Wrong guess, Bub. I thought people here would be interested in the article. There is a MICRO FOUR THIRDS sign over this forum's door, is there not?

Yes BUB, but misleading, unsubstantiated subject lines designed to draw people's attention is not what most people on this forum expect. Based on the subject of the original post, the images one would expect to see would be limited to: a) photos OF an EM-10 with the new Olympus 25mm f/1.8 lens attached, or b) photos TAKEN BY an EM-10 with new Olympus 25mm 1.8 lens attached.  Instead, we get a link to a site that is playing a coy little guessing game.

On the other hand, if the subject had been "Tantalizing Post by Robin Wong: Possible E-M10 Pics" or similar, that would be another story altogether.

Incorrect expectations. Nothing purer than that.

That's what you would expect to see. If you had carefully read the quote I included in the OP, then you might have understood the nature of the post. Instead, your narrow expectations have deluded your comprehension because the quote quite clearly implies exactly what the article is.

What did you think "I shall show a few of the images I have taken so far with this new camera, and can you guess which camera and lens combination used to take the following images?" means?

Just pretend that the title of the forum post is as you say... Ready? Now what do you think about the article?

Re: Incorrect expectations. Nothing purer than that.

I was thinking the Stylus 1.

But with those bird shots I`m not so sure, unless it has some kind of defocus trickery built in.

A new lens for sure, maybe the new 40-150 from Olympus.

Many thanks for posting yhe link.  I always enjoy Robin Wong's reviews of new Olympus gear.  I did enjoy the photos he posted.

Since the Stylus One is already out I wouldn't think the photos would be from the Stylus One.  He always likes to time his blog review for the day of the actual announcement.  So I am guessing the E-M10 and the 40-150 f2.8.  Anyhow it sounds like the Olympus announcement is coming in a few days.

Well, since you asked: based on the subject line of the original post, I was expecting to see images taken with the E-M10, and in addition some additional photos taken with other cameras and lenses.

On the other hand, if the subject had been "Tantalizing Post by Robin Wong: Possible E-M10 Pics" or similar, that would be another story altogether.

Just pretend that the title of the forum post is as you say... Ready? Now what do you think about the article?

I think the images are very nice, and am mildly interested in which camera and lens took them.  However, I am much MORE interested in seeing pics of the new E-M10 and 25mm lens, which were disappointingly absent from Robin's blog.

At any rate, it's a slow Sunday afternoon, so thanks for the diversion.

I wouldn't get too excited that we're seeing images from a new lens, as RW only hints that he's reviewing a body (which is obviously the EM10) and he never alludes that he has an unreleased lens in his hands, so this is probably the 75mm Zuiko.

Then again, who knows, we just might be looking at the first images from the 40-150mm Pro lens

He didn't say a body, but a camera; the focal length are very different between the shots, from almost macro to tele. For sure, it isn't a 75mm, because it has a too long nearest focusing distance which would make the food shots near impossible to shoot.

Given RW statement that the IQ would surprise us, it is probably a compact zoom offering a very wide range of finals. Aka what mist name a compact travel camera.

Edit : thinking to it, the DOF may be too thin for a compact.. So we may look at MFT gear after all.

How about a Zeiss Touit for m4/3 (Zeiss named the Touit range after a genus of parrots)?

Olympus STYLUS 1

I see there is a review of the Olympus STYLUS 1 up now. You were wrong about everything and I will let you sort out your own psychological problems that would cause you to lie and post a link to a website that gets people to click on it based on that.  Did that website owner privately tell you the photos he posted were from the E-M10 and 25mm f1.8?  If so, then you may be angry with him since he used you as a patsy to drive traffic to his site.  If not, then I am flummoxed.

As a reminder to you and everyone else, this is what you wrote:

Stylus photos just prove...

What we've known all along.   Depending on the focal length AND the distance you are form the subject, it IS possible to get shallow DOF even with a point and shoot.  Too funny.  It would be nice if people that screech about DOF actually go out and try some shots with a point and shoot to see for themselves that you really can (in some situations) get that shallow DOF.

No, of course it's not ever going to be shallow like a full frame or even APS-C in most situations, but Robin's post just proved how hysterical people can get and how easy it is to fool people into believing a bigger sensor camera was used.

So anyway....we're all better off to go out and shoot and enjoy ourselves, rather than have endless pixel-peeping / gear debates.   It's one thing to discuss features and functions, but it's something else to constantly debate what ends up being nothing more than photographic technique and personal style.

CAUTION:  Point and shoot (P7000) shallow DOF photo below

Besides the depth of field, the details in the feathers don't disappoint me, especially since it's a 10x zoom lens.

Op, just admit it, it's a misleading title written that way for sensationalism and drama.

Obviously I was wrong, and have no problem being so. I don't take myself as seriously as you seem to take me. I was hoping it was the EM-10 and for fun, made a public prediction. )If you read Wong's follow-up post, he actually apologized for the misleading wording in the teaser article. New camera AND lens, he originally said.)

As far as wanting to drive people to his website -- that line of reasoning is completely delusional on your part. I don't have any connection to him and any amount of common sense would prevail with that conclusion. In fact, I dislike his blog, because his reviews are nothing but PR.

As for my intent, OP, and title, you simply misunderstood. That's ok, just don't blame me for it. My title could have been better, but if you read the post and the quote I provided, everything was obvious. A handful of people other than yourself comprehended just fine.
