Pixnat2: The best m4/3 systems IQ in a 300$ camera.
What elses?

@eno2
Between bold marketing statements and reality, there's often a difference.
It will be interesting to see how they compare once they are available.

SirSeth: This may become an instant cult classic! It's certainly the cheapest 4K capable ILC on the market and it really is quite forward thinking for young innovators. ;) What would make this even more classic though is open source firmware with developer tools that the community could easily enhance. Ultimate project camera and ground roots movement if this happens (doubtful I know).

I agree 100%.
The GH2 and Magic Lantern hacks were a real awesome source of communitiy creativity. But they were unofficial hacks.
Now a camera with true open source firmware would be a revolution ;-)

This excellent addition of small, weathersealed and affordable prime lenses, with high IQ and fast AF, makes the Fuji system so attractive that it would be very difficult to resist!
I'm in, and happy to be ;-)

"Whatever the reason, I implore you, Olympus, bring back the clamshell!"

They did it in 2001 : Olympus C-1 (https://www.dpreview.com/articles/4137741210/olympusc1), a 1 Mpix camera ;-)

But +100 for a modern 1" digital Mju or XA !

This is beautiful and absolutely thrilling!
In the same time, it makes me very sad : while we are able to do such technological prowess, we are not able to preserve our own planet.
Take care Mars, humans are coming...

Back in your shells guys...back in your shells...(actually,,that's unfair to molluscs to liken them to many in the comments section) ;-)

lol, I remember this. It was the silliest complaint I've ever read. Now it's even sillier ;-)

I wonder if pros are as obsessed by chart numbers as us amateurs?

MeganV: The paradigm shift underway, here, saddens.

Google says, "use Snapseed for mobile instead of these old desktop applications." OK, but Snapseed for mobile doesn't do nearly as much, nearly as well.

Adobe says, "use Photoshop Fix and Lightroom mobile or Lightroom for the Web and edit wherever you are!" OK, but Photoshop Fix and Lightroom Mobile can't even touch big RAW files without a convoluted ingest-on-computer-then-sync workflow. They can't do as much, nearly as well.

Apple says, "the iPad Pro is our bold, uncompromising vision for the future of personal computing. Windows users, come on over!" Ok, but how does one even get his or her Windows files ON to an iPad? Dropbox? And where are all the professional-grade apps? Like, how would I edit a really big spreadsheet with v-lookups and data qualifiers and deep sorts? The iPad Pro can't do as much, nearly as well.

Welp, I guess it's a future of JPEGs and instagram filters. We'll have to figure out how to make it work.

Hey Megan,you were a fierce defender of smartphone pictures 3 weeks ago. What happened?

Anyway, I agree with you on this. But we're free not to follow ;-)

I like the two multifunction dials. Clever.

If 4K gimmik is the only complaint, don't worry Canon users, you have a winner!

@eno2
I never ask you to think like me, you're free dude.
I shoot Nikon, Fuji and Oly, so don't need a new Canon ;-) I just think it's a good camera for Canon users.
I do care a lot about image quality, but not the same way as you do.
But you're a videographer and I'm a photographer, so I guess we have different needs.

Dunno. Never been interested.
Hasn't Samsung stop their NX business?

@ Random Photographer
Memories has nothing to do with video resolution. When I watch the VCR film of my childhood, I never thougt "If only they were shot in 4K" ;-)

4K is the Panasonic Mantra, with fans defending fiercely that 4K is a must and every camera that do not have it is pure garbage.
Sorry, I don't buy it. For soccer dads or amateurs, even 720p is more than they need to record memories.

Why? Because it has no 4K?

On article History Repeating: Olympus PEN-F Review (1070 comments in total)

Very nice photo gallery! Congrats to DPR staff, who obviously had a lot of fun with this camera!
This PEN seems to be hit for street shooters : small, unobstrusive, lots of well palced external controls, fast AF. Pity about the non customisable front dial though. But I suspect it could be with a future FW update.
