On article DPReview TV: OM System OM-1 initial review (185 comments in total)

As the definitive criteria for ordering this camera would be the improved high sensitivity performance, would it be possible to provide a few comparable high-ISO studio captures with OM-1 and another camera, e.g. OMD 1 E-M1 iii side-by side? Without waiting for the final review? Please...

Naveed Akhtar: Brilliant, good to see Olympus is not entirely gone.
I was always concerned, if I can see that Olympus logo on coming cameras or not.
Glad it is right where it used to be.
I don't mind a new and smaller sticker at the bottom right corner.
sweet!

Ok. Yet, some agreement has been made so the the name can be used in this first OMDS model.
But I guess we do not know what the contract says about next models.
Your second point can give a hint.
Actually, I was looking at the branding aspect only form Olympus' view.
I think the Olympus name has value for its innovative historic background, and a good, well-earned reputation.
If that was not the case, a new brand name would be beneficial.

I would think it would be a thing for the manufacturer to keep the Olympus name on their cameras also in coming models.
Is there a reason why not?

In terms of IQ, It would be very much appreciated to see some low-light (high ISO) comparison with an earlier OM-D camera, and with some FF camera.
Would this be possible before the final review is published?

blosshapperter: Has anybody found ouyt why the comparison images look softer than the Pen F?
Best to be seen with bulb light and higher ISOs, but also at base ISO it looks a bit soft.
Can the tuning to readout speed be the driving factor or is it out of focus?

I do not know the reason, but the studio pics are so much softer, that they cannot represent the actual IQ of Mark II.
Maybe the lens was defective?
Anyway, something is clearly wrong. The pictures are misleading, and should not have been published as such. They should be replaced with new ones, taken with a different lens and maybe another sample of Mark II.

Ukkomies: I got mine yesterday, only a few shots now taken yet. Seems very nice. Sharp!
Only, the zoom ring is quite stiff right out of the box. Is getting better already.
One positive thing I had not even expected:
The stabilising system in the lens seems to work clearly more efficiently than the one in my Oly E-M5 (first version)
So the picture in the viewfinder is much more steady. So aiming at distant objects a lot easier, than with my m.Zuiko 75-300.
My first impression is very good.

Hello, Pete,
The E-M5 actually has a setting for optimising at different focal lengths, but I don´t know how much that compensates.
Anyway, I agree with your assumption.
My first impressions have not changed.
The sharpness is really good, even at pixel-peeping level, at 400mm.
Much better than with my Oly 75-300 at 300 mm.
I have no experience with focus tracking.
I have read about focusing difficulties.
Some pictures have been slightly out of focus. By a tiny bit.
As with any of the the lenses I ever tried.
Like when taking several shots of the same bird at long distance, some may focus at the eye and some on the tail. No systematic back (or front) focusing.
Have you tried Googling "ephotozine Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmar 100-400mm f/4.0-6.3 ASPH Review" ?
That is the most informative review I found before buying the lens.
Is this lens worth the price? If you need the reach, definitely.
Hope this helps.
Seppo

Brian Wadie: I had the EM-5 and EM-1 + a bag of lenses as I tried to recreate my pro canon kit (which I sold because of the weight involved which aggravated my arthritis, in neck, shoulders and hands). I then discovered that I had recreated the same problem I had with the canon kit so in a fit of sheer stupidity I sold the lot and went to a couple of 1" sensor bodies BUT the one thing I could no longer do to the quality I wanted was shoot my bees, bugs and butterflies

So - I have now had the EM-5 mk2 + 60mm macro for around 3 months in which time I have shot in excess of 5k images, mainly macro. It was like coming home but better, the quality of shots I can now get exceeds anything I was achieving with my canon 7D + 100 LIS macro (and they are certainly better than I was achieving with the EM-1.) For me its the perfect match for the job I have it for (I won't be buying any of the longer / heavier lenses this time round :) )

Hi, I have a first generation OMD 5, which I like very much, so I read your comment with interest.
I guess you have shot with Hi-Res, when you get better pictures than with the Canon?
