Rich Evans: If only they would spend half that time producing a better sensor.

@toomix
I do when comparing to the Sony ones.

If you look at the IQ comparisons Canon is lagging behind in many aspects.

@Dominik84
More power to you then but we are talking about absolute numbers here and there Canon lags behind.

Photoman: I hope Panasonic do a firmware update that includes train AF 😝

@Photoman Dont be silly.

Face detect would out work on Thomas.

But as evidenced by the video the photo would still be OoF because of the bad AF implementation on this cam. LOL!

@Dr_Jon

I take it you slice it at home? Do you have a preferred method? Serrated knives or electric slicers?

Remember kids: wrap a towel around the bread to keep it fresh. My nonna taught me that.

This guy is an Olympus visionary.

OF COURSE he will say that it is the best thing since sliced bread.

Other reviewers are not as kind on this cam.

ms18: Advantage of smaller sensor: Portable, Cheap

I'm sad Olympus not realizing both of these aspects.

>Advantage of smaller sensor: readout speed for crazy fps, easier to stabilize

Still below the A9 in both tracking and FPS and it is barely outpacing the D5 which is many years old.

So no, this cam is not doing ANYTHING that other cams not the market are not already doing.

Max Iso: The fate of this camera will be decided by the C-AF. If its amazing, the X will be heralded as the messiah, if its only marginally better than MK2/G9, Olympus and MFT will be burned at the stake.

@bobogdan78

LOOOL!!!! Good one buddy.

Perhaps he dropped it on his foot.

Jared Polin absolutely destroyed this camera.

So I guess its time to find said stakes.

Rich Evans: I LOVE the sports AF on this cam. This is truly REVOLUTIONARY:
-A barely moving snow scooter with a child behind.
-A grounded plane.
-A miniature train.

I am still looking for reviews that actually challenge this camera with things such as:
-A snail race
-Ice melting competition
-Plants growing

D500, A9 and D5 take note: There is a new kid on the block. And he is reaaally REAAALLLY, REAAAAAAAAALLLY not putting up a fight at all.

Or even trying...

Most of the motocross shots shown in the video were OoF.

Even in the video they mentioned it does not inspire confidence.

PASS!

Aroart: I think Olympus is delusional in think a pro photographer would jump ship to there dying sensor format... I thought the purpose of micro 4/3 was to have a small light weight system.. I know people will argue all day that this can be a pro camera with great IQ.. All I know is that my Sony a73 IQ beat the pants off my A6500 and Fuji xt2, imagine what it would do with micro 4/3..

@Thorgrem
LOOOLLL!!!!

Let me start with the good Oly points here:
-Great build quality and WS
-I am sure the camera feels great in the hand (buttons, dials, etc)
-Live ND is neat-o

And that is IT.

A 3k USD mFT cam. that:
-DOESNT beat the best EVF on mFT
-DOESNT have the fastest FPS or AF on mFT
-DOESNT improve on screen
-DOESNT increase DR/high ISO/resolution (Welcome to 2012 everyone)
-ISNT on par with the A9/D500 (let alone of the 3x cheaper a6400) in AF-C

This is an E-M1II had too MANY DOUGHNUTS! It is basically ME!

Many mFT die hards were vouching for this cam and singing its praises before they even saw it. Promising "A9 is dead", "D500 is destroyed", "on the same league as the D5". Now it is here and it is a HUGE nothing burger.

Clearly Pana saw what Oly was cooking and NOPED the hell out of mFT. And after seeing this I say: Good on them.

And for those who said that Oly was going to "rule" the mFT niche. This is NOT the way to do it.

And please for the love of ALL that is holy BUY NEWER SENSORS

Rich Evans: So much for the haters saying that this was dead on the water right? With this price and this good AF this is insane.

And by Tony Northrup tests this is killing the XT3 and previous Sony cameras in successful hit rate. I would imagine cameras with even poorer AF systems like the GH5 or EM1 will be left even more behind.

When it is released for the A9 is going to be crazy.

Lord Powershoter

Ahhh come on MAN. Let's face it!

If you are spending time commenting on DPReview it is not like there is a line of MAIDENS and CRAZY adventures waiting for you outside of the door.

I should know. I just checked MINE.

And: It is Mr. Dork for you Sir.

mario GTI: Awesome, fantastic, affordable, old looking camera. Common Sony, how many more models are yet to come in the same old tired body?

Don't you prefer a lower price for an "old tired looking body" than paying 3k for an EM1x monstrosity of a camera or an unusable "Touch Bar" on the EOSr.

WRONG!!!!

The video clearly states that the Sony has 11fps on AF.

Besides AE is locked on the Fuji when doing bursts and you have to get a grip to get more fps. What the HELL is that all about?

In reply to:

entoman: Looks to be just what we are looking for - intelligent AF that can recognise a subject and lock on to the appropriate feature - eyes, face or general shape. Promises to be very versatile.

But as Chris implies, the basic camera is uninspiring - same sensor, same burst speed, same single card slot, same ergonomics (but a welcome improvement in the menus).

The new firmware for the a9 seems to offer simlar improvements in AF, and that is where things get more exciting - a decent sports camera with state-of-art AF subject recognition and tracking.

Hopefully firmware updates for the a7Riii will be equally efficient, and if so we'll have almost everything we need - a decent burst rate, high MP count, good dynamic range and the best AF recognition and tracking on the market.

So, just a few more refinements in ergonomics (larger body, more widely spaced controls), and better weather-proofing/durability - and then I'll be ready to switch from Canon to Sony.

Keep it coming Sony!

@Fly18 I was just trying you man...

Maybe I would have an opening. LOL!!!!

@MikeRan I would HATE to buy into a system that the company can't even afford to throw marketing trips to the press.

This is one of the 1st signs that the company is NOT financially stable making it concerning to invest my hard earned money into a company that might be GONE in 2 years.

@Fly18 has a crush on Sony and Tony Northrup.

He is married dude... Give the guy a rest.
