mferencz: Everybody is going mirrorless big. Big bodies, big lenses, big prices. Can only think Fuji, and Olympus are quietly smiling. If I want to go to a garden or for a short trip etc... i'm not lugging this stuff around. Do I want to carry a huge mirrorless 50 1.8 Nikon lens or this body? NO. I hope to god Pany stays heavily invested in M43.

Actually, I quite often do hike 10 miles! My Fuji cameras work just fine. =)

Cam Eralens, no, I wasn't implying that. I am chuckling specifically at the E-M1X which I see as an overpriced, overweight, underspec'ed and perhaps even tragic attempt to respond to the full frame onslaught. Yes it has some intriguing features, but in my opinion, it does not have $3000 worth of features relative to its similarly or even lesser priced competition (of ANY sensor size), nor am I interested in a 2 pound camera, particularly one with an MFT sensor.

Have a great weekend!

Your reply was prompt, but ignorant. I was not aware that I was whining about anything. I did not say anything about the Panasonic, was merely agreeing that mirrorless cameras in general are becoming larger and heavier. Some will like that, some won't. No need to fling dung at those who disagree with you.

Agree, compactness and weight are a big part of why I went mirrorless in the first place. Not sure Olympus is quietly smiling though: the EM1X is 997 grams. Seems they have chosen to offer all the avoirdupois of full frame, without any of its benefits. =)

DPR I think you meant to say "gaffe" and not "gaff" =)

No more standalone = no more Lightroom for me. There are plenty of equally good but less greedy competitors out there.

Is this lens in addition to, or instead of, the 10mm F2.8 which was announced some time ago? To my knowledge that lens can still not actually be found, and nobody has seen one, much less tested or reviewed it.

We do love announcements Samyang, but we love actual availability of lenses even more! =)
