I think this is a great way to test a camera and the photos are better than most sample gallery. Good job!

Sir Corey of Deane: With the ease of photo fakery, EVERY image on the Web can be questioned and thus the value of these blah blah blah awards, competitions etc.

I've seen what I consider better pics posted by 'ordinary' DPReview members.

Imagine a day when all photos are only displayed in RAW...... I'll give up looking at galleries and probably photography.

nokinonacynos: Looks like an amazing cam. However, I think MFT will continue to struggle. Once the cam is not pocketable, size becomes less of an advantage. People are realizing that a certain size is required for comfort and ergonomics. With a Pro lens, the package is similar to APC. So no advantage. In fact, the 25mm 1.2 is bigger, heavier and much more expensive than a 35mm f/2 for APC let alone a 50mm f/1.8 for FF.

This camera will have to sell on inherent qualities rather than size and weight.

WOW! the lack of moire and false colour is amazing. It's interesting to see how 4 different cameras can render high frequency patterns so differently especially in the illustrations. Thanks for highlighting.

I had the c7070/c8080... both are excellently built imaging machines. The lens on the c8080 is just incredible at that time and i still think the flip up and twist LCD on the c7070 is easier to use compare to side hinged type

Dave Deacon: Staging images is as good as finding something by chance that works. The result is what matters and these are fantastic fun images. I've watched and enjoyed many films/TV shows most of which were scripted.

Beautifully captured and me thinks photography is about everything under and beyond the sun. It's only the imagination that's limiting.

ironcam: I don't see the point of this thing. I have seen some samples and it looks really soft even when something is in focus.

FYI the original canon 1D is a 4MP camera and it's used for most things back then

It looks great indeed. Should consider a product placement in transformers 5 in a camera transforming robot.

In reply to:

PhotoHawk: Truly disappointing - nothing new here. It is the same Olympus strategy we've seen before. The same box, slightly different dials, same IQ, same sensor, the same performance. Do you want fries with this or do you want home fries.

Think back to the EP1, EP2, EP3, EPL1, EPL1s, EPL2, EPL3, EPM1, E600, E620,E5. All use the same sensor and pretty much have the same IQ. Different form factors but we don't even have that really in three models of OMD.

If someone can slam Canon for reusing the 18 MP sensor in many bodies then we should be critical of Olympus as well.

Now Fuji - thats exciting! They are moving the bar forward fast. And say what you want about Sony but clearly they are moving quicker as well.

I don't see panasonic or samsung beating the olympus in terms of IQ, its more like a match and that was panasonic playing catchup since the EM5 was launch before the GX7 or GM1. Are you just comparing them on paper? On paper every new release is better than the old but by how much? As for Fuji, granted their IQ has the edge, they're also playing catchup in terms of functions and features to EM1 and you gotta pay more to get that.

In reply to:

Gesture: Neat cameras down-specifying. But $700 is not budget-friendly; it is a lot of money.

It's a fine line between budget and perceived value. Won't you agree if it falls below a certain retail price the camera will be view as "CHEAP" and won't hold a (special) place in consumers heart since it's 'disposable'. For those that keep comparing EM-5 price, please compare it at retail instead of resale market. Anyhow, it's a logical strategy since Olympus has the intention to continue selling EM-5 and people may just buy it due to it not being much more expensive then EM-10.

Dave729: Doesn't work with either OM-D -- compatibility list on their website says something to the effect of the structure of the camera blocks the radio signal. Doesn't the EyFi broadcast OK from an OMD?

I didn't encounter any noticeable problem with my omd

Handled one briefly and must say the EVF is definitely a step up, FF vf sized with more fluid response than the GX7 or fuji's Xe. Continuous FPS is really fast too with a very light flutter and shutter sound seem even more damped compared to EM5. AF is blazingly fast which DPR failed to list in their pros. Its a camera or system that needs to be experienced as a whole to see it's benefits. For those who can't see pass its 'small' sensor size, your depth of view are as narrow as your FF or MF or LF systems.
