DominicF: It's a shame they didn't stick with the MFT mount, which would work with a Super 35 sensor too. I hope a future model goes back to that (and adds IBIS and an EVF). Very promising though.

JVC solved that issue with their camera - I believe you can modify the area of the sensor you use if the lens you've selected displays vignetting. It's only certain focal lengths where that would be a problem. So the increase in resolution combined with the flexibility of the mount would make it an interesting option. I hope other camera-makers explore it.

A Super 35 sensor fits within a M43 mount. There's a JVC camera that came out several years ago which has it. As for IBIS as well, I don't know. But if they went with that size of sensor with micro four thirds for the lenses you could have a speed booster and get the full frame look if that is what interests you. It's very adaptable. As for some of the other comments, I realise for others that can afford several different systems it is not a concern when there is a change in mount. But for those of us who have invested in M43 lenses, it would be nice if all the best features - highest resolution and frame rates - weren't reserved for the EF model.

I guess every time I've looked at camera sites in recent years and seen know-it-alls cheerily proclaiming the death of micro four thirds has made me over sensitive to this kind of thing! ;)

It would be nice if they continued to support MFT. But I suspect this indicates the future direction of the camera. I think it would be more fun to see more MFT-mount cameras with Super 35 sensors, that's all.

manchumuq: I believe that the next BMPCC 4k will be phenomenal.

@GodSpeaks - Yes, of course looks are not important compared to performance. I was being facetious. It is ugly though... ;)

I hope they make it more compact and aesthetically less like a 1980s clock radio.

Henry Richardson: I suppose dpreview will update the E-M1II review as they just did the Nikon Z6 and Z7 reviews.

Nikon Z6 and Z7 scoring updated to reflect firmware v2.0

https://www.dpreview.com/articles/4669774748/nikon-z6-and-z7-scoring-updated-to-reflect-firmware-v2-0

Yes, I was wondering why they didn't bother to give the same treatment to this camera as well...

(unknown member): I was just reading the news article about how 1 in 4 interchangeable lens cameras sold in Japan in an Olympus. I am glad to see they are so popular. Panasonic micro four third cameras are also very popular for video makers. While, it will probably change after the S1H review, the 2 most recommended cameras for video just happen to be Panasonic.
This is a wonderfully versatile system they've created and it has more support and more manufactures than any other system. Isn't JVC releasing an 8K M43 camera soon too?

JVC, and Sharp too. Fingers crossed Olympus will put more effort into the video side in the future and match Panasonic. I'm rooting for them to succeed!
