Darn, I used to write down the location of a photo on the lens with a permanent marker. Well, at least, now I can save a plate when I like to have a salad with oil and vinegar dressing out in the field.

But on a serious note, the only test I would be interesting in would be salt water spray.

Lux Painter: The price is not bad, although it should be less than 2k considering:

- extremly low frame rate
- less than 16 MP
- no internal 4k recording

The only interesting feature that's left is the superb ISO performance.
But the first 3 points are a no go for me (even if it would be priced less than 2k)

That's right, but Nikon is squeezing the same ISO performance out of 16 MP.

Considering the price of the Olympus OM-D E-M1 it really kicks butt in the dynamic range.

Either Canon is going to release their own smartphone (so the smartphone is not an enemy) or they are in total denial (more likely)

Lux Painter: I want that sensor in a small and light weight body (D600 or smaller and lighter)!

NO chance I will ever buy a D4-sized body.

"Another small change worth mentioning is the camera's ability to use the Auto ISO feature while in manual exposure mode. This allows you to choose a shutter speed and an aperture setting and let the camera decide on the necessary ISO."

Seriously?! Don't tell me the D4 couldn't do that! That's how I use AutoISO 80% of the time (D700/800)

The DF is for people having more money than brains.

I don't want retro performance and have to pay more than twice what it's actually worth.

On article Olympus releases OM-D E-M5 firmware version 2.0 (86 comments in total)

Nice, but where's the timelapse function?

The 25mmf1.8 sounds like an awesome lens and was long overdue. And based on Olympus reputation of building great lenses it should have a stellar performance.

But the price tag of $400 (twice the price of a full frame 50mmf1.8 lens) must be a sick joke!

Maybe Olympus is trying to ruin their m43 biz completely.

Beats me, why dpreview is supporting this kind of behavior by posting the pics.

What's next? Posting Fatali's pics torching Delicate Arch?

And another fail as photo backpack.

Thin, unpadded shoulder straps, no good back support.

Maybe 2-3 more generations and the manufactures get it right.

cleverinstigator: Question 60 is flawed. If you don't have a smart phone then there is no correct answer and it is required.

yep, had the same problem. I never use any of those features on a smart phone. At the end, I selected Photoshop (lol)
