  • Everyone's waiting to buy the EM1.2 :P But in all seriousness, Olympus probably should revamp their volume selling models and keep the momentum going. As good as the EM1.2 is, it's probably priced ...
  • I didn't see your reply b4 and I repeated it in my reply but that's exactly what I want.
  • Replied in EM5 - III ?
    Just a guess but possibly sooner than expected. We're in the 20MP generation and there's no volume seller using the sensor yet. So to get costs down I think Olympus' intro timetable may be sped up ...
  • Replied in Many reasons
    A few possibilities. - The EM1.2 may actually be more comfortable and ergonomic to hold. Depends on your hand size and body design preference. - The EM1.2 may have superior features and performance ...
  • Replied in New 28mm f1.4
    A new 28mm f1.4 with all the modern goodies. Rendition of the 58mm f1.4 and the sharpness of the 105mm f1.4
  • Only in depth at the mount area. Coupled with lenses that need to cover the full 135 image circle, does the depth at the mount area make enough of a difference in the FF market? I know there are ...
  • You're actually preaching to a convert haha. Let's just say I'm quietly confident for the future of Olympus. I'm lucky in that for my  shooting needs I don't really need to make a bet on a ...
  • Replied in Quick questions
    Which 24-70 lens is this? Nikon or third party and the VR or non-VR version? If it has VR, was it engaged during the shot? If it was engaged, did you wait a moment for the VR to stabilise prior to ...
  • The practical answer is that we hit that resolution a long time ago for the average buyer's needs as oppose to wants. But to a certain extent, MPs are still a selling point although decreasingly so. ...
  • Absolutely. Although Hi Res is not solely the domain of Olympus. But who better to push it forward than the masters of IBIS :) Here's where I disagree but hey, its all good :) We're all entitled to ...
  • I've personally tried the 12-100 already but on the Pen F and I can tell you the sync IS is incredible. The combo with the EM1.2 can only be better :) I believe the Fuji's offer pretty substantial ...
  • Created discussion thread A question of value
    I think everyone's a bit too hung up about the actual cost of the EM1.2. The question everyone should be asking is what is the value of the EM1.2 and this is very subjective and varies from person ...
  • Ok I'll bite. So let's use it screen closed when not in use so it is indeed protected and there's no need to disable touchscreen. I still need a way to directly access AF points so I'm still going...

  • Looking at the two cameras you mentioned on the camera size comparison site, the differences are more stark even though the 23/2 is already quite a small lens. Absolutely re: optical VF. I don't ...
  • Thanks for your viewpoint. I'm just thinking aloud but haven't yet seriously looked at buying FLC for my shooting style. I'm still hoping a secondary mirrorless system would do the trick for my ...
  • Yes. Its a big grey zone. I wonder whether there would still be enough volume to support this enthusiast compact market or will smartphones gobble it up too. Without volume, pricing increases ...
  • I would only be speculating since I don't have the relevant industry experience but that's also the conclusion I'm coming up with. How much that saving is would be harder to determine. Would love ...
  • I think Graham made that point above and its very true. Something I hadn't considered. But thinking about it, lets say you had a DL24-85 and a theoretical DL50 or 35. And the 24-85 died. You could ...
  • Perhaps. As I said elsewhere, it needs to gain something over the DL zooms and CX lenses otherwise I agree, there wouldn't be an upside. A 10mm is covered by the DL24-85. So 27mm equiv I'll ...
  • OT: I've recently tried to declutter my life in general which meant throwing away (actually donated, not chucked) a lot of perfectly good things but no longer used. But in keeping with that ...
