I bet this lens will reignite another feverish round of APSC and FF equivalence mudslinging.

m4/3 vs FF will take a backseat now.

WOW i must say.... finally something ground breaking and could be a reason to stick to or buy into APSC format cameras again. Amazing its not crazy huge too like canon's and nikon's offering. Only 72mm filter thread and 0.8kg. This is something canon and nikon should've done to show their commitment to APSC cameras rather than relying on their legacy lenses.

marike6: For stills, if the GH3 and OMD have the same sensor, with identical DxOMark scores, why does DPR submit that the GH3 only has "good IQ" and with the OMD they were gushing about IQ?

How can two identical sensors produce such dramatically difference output? JPEGs are meaningless with most cameras of this class, and in fact some of the only really good JPEGs are from the XPro1. But most shoot RAW.

Anyway, thanks for the review.

'Most shoot RAW' base on what sample size? If its only dpreview or photographic forums versus the world at large, would you still think most shoot RAW? Camera companies sells to the world, not just to 'photographers'.

And to add, you can't send a RAW file to the lab to get prints. In the end you'll still need a 'lowly' JPEG or TIFF if you wish to print your photos. I don't ever recall printers requiring user to provide 16 or 32bit JPEG images too.

I seriously hope Olympus ignore those "RAW purist" and continue their fine tradition of their JPEG engine.

Don't give up refining your JPEG engine Olympus!

sadwitch: dcwatch just did a review with numerous images. For people with just compare specs on paper, do yourself a favour and look at those images before slagging it.

Nothing this compact has produce such incredible details and like many said it's sitting side by side with full frame digital bodies mounted with their respective highest resolving lens. It may be a one trick pony but there's no other ponies like it.

Its definitely worth nothing if you only like shooting in the dark or where light levels are not great. But for photographers that chase after light, I bet its a hell of an image making machine.

Just look at the portraits from the link, bleeding edge sharpness texture and hair details and all shot wide open at F2.8. There isn't much F2.8 lens that can give that kind of quality.

I for one think that RAW is not necessary. A great jpeg engine is more important in these type of cameras. For those who needs RAW, they will not be considering these category of camera's anyway and for those who are, they will not be bothered or tinkering with RAW files.

I've went all micro now and he says this.... Luckily i still keep my 14-54mk2 as a just in case.

they got it quite right in ergo and button placement with EP2 and EP3... not quite with the EM5. I prefer the flush mode dial on the EP2 and thumb dial as I have a tendency to knock the EM5 dial while changing lenses.

Adrian Tung: I can imagine the Rei and Asuka versions being sold out in the blink of an eye, but who in their right mind would buy the Shinji? And why isn't there a Makinami Mari edition? ;-)

Poor Shinji.... :P Nigecha dame da!

Iskender: I was going to buy one of these, but then I heard you get only five minutes of untethered battery life. Five minutes! What were the designers thinking??

After it run out of juice, it'll go into berserk mode

In reply to:

arqomx: would like to see the noise performance for both XZ-2 and XZ-10. My XZ-1 doesn't fare well from ISO 800 and above >. < (though with f2.7 lens you'll find it seldom to crank the ISO more than 400)

Do you think you'll shoot a masterpiece in that kind of lighting situations?

Just give up reading posts if it affects you. But then it's fun to see from the sidelines.

In reply to:

limlh: I almost bought the E-M5 because of its IBIS and good enough IQ at high ISO, but in the end good enough is just not good enough.

You almost bought? so do you mean you didn't and you concluded it's not good enough? I can also say I almost bought the Sigma DP merrills cos' it easily trash the 5Ds and D800 at 1/4 of their price in IQ.
