Gatoraied: @$2K it clearly was not intended for everyone. Olympus does make sub $500 cameras. Nikon & Canon make $6K cameras but they are not for everyone.

Canikon has the professional service and market share to afford that luxury.

Oly has none of that.

Mateus1: Big body with tiny sensor for the price higher than best APS-C cams on the market inluding X-T2, X-Pro2, A6500 and D500! Same with Oly lenses. M1mkII is even bigger then FF Sony A7II. Oly just started to kill m/43.

Oly won't be around for long.

They will bail out like how they kill their own 4/3.

Terry Breedlove: Well crud that price is crazy, Bye Bye Olympus looks like I am getting a Sony A7II for $300 less.

Great choice!

And if you love MF lens get a Techart pro and you can have AF.

Thomas Traub: At this price this is devinitly no option.
And if Olympus acts in this way they will lost me as customer
:-(

Sincere advice - Jump ship while you can.
Oly will jump themselves just like they did with 4/3.

ybizzle: $2500 CAD is way into full frame territory but you are getting a ton of features for the price. The questions is can Olympus convince those on the fence to buy one!

Not a chance except the biggest Oly fanboys

Kavu: Funny listening to all the e-mount folks b*tch about this release. A-mount users have been waiting for ages. E-mount users should actually take comfort that Sony just doesn't abandon a sector when a new one begins to thrive.

wait until an A9 gets dropped with 75mp and same 12fps and AF system.

Wild Light: I don't understand why people are complaining about the 5D 4. This is significant in my opinion, a game changer even.

@ Timbukto
"They shouldn't market this as focus microadjust, but as a soft-focus/bokeh adjustment"

Bokeh adjustment? Do you mean you can selectively choose/mask a specific area(s) within the image?

Because if you dial in the settings in an attempt to adjust bokeh wouldn't it also affect your focus on your subject as well?

@noms78

Why would anyone want to carry a bulky DSLR on an overseas photographic holiday?

Pickup an A7RII instead for less money. 5DSR might have the MP, but DR still significantly lags behind the Sony sensor.

@ Richard.

That means it's even "less" then.

Useless feature indeed...

In reply to:

Thanks Richard, maybe that's something you guys can test next?

That is dial in -5, 0 and +5 AF Microadjustment, take the shots and compared to the equivalent value with Dual Pixel Image Microadjustment after?

In reply to:

Leigh A. Wax: The Canon hype did state that it works 'better" when lens is "stopped down", with more DOF. F1.8 doesn't offer much range to work with.

How so?

As DPR demonstrated the "shift" is so tiny. Stopped down already has thick DOF and that slight adjustment would have close to zero effects.

In reply to:

If this features allows the full -20 to +20 as the traditional "pre-MA" it CAN be useful.

Imo range of -5 to +5 is simply not shifting enough pixels to make it useful.

@ Paul JM I was looking for a Sony A7RII killer. But no, this is nowhere near that level which is just downright sad.

@nekrosoft13 Same here. So glad I dumped my Canon 5D3 2 years ago and moved on!

carpenikon: It is only a camera test. The reason why mist people love Fuji is because if their lens lineup. Altough the Nikon D500 will be a good camera the lens selection of excellent APSC lenses is limited. You always have ferling you 'need to go fullframe' to get the most out of best lenses as they are not optimised for APSC. I switched from Nikon to Fuji fir that reason. Nikon dies not offer excellent APSC lenses. You buy a camera but invest in lenses. And by the way, my X-T1 with a prime (eg 23mm F1.4) weighs together less than den Nikon D500 body only.

@ Chris

"Even the best one - the 16-35 is visibly worse above 28mm, that's why I'm adapting a Canon to my A7rII."

So you are comparing DSLR pro lens to the Sony, ah huh.

May I ask FE16-35 visibly worse above 28mm when compared to what?

This is about APS-C mirrorless, more specifically Fuji X-series bodies. You can compare XF10-24 mounted on ANY Fuji X bodies all you want and the "average" FE16-35 will still murder it any day.

See the point? Good glass isn't be all end all.

I happen to own the A7RII, 35/2.8 and used to have the XF 23 1.4.

Personally I take the Zeiss any day.

The XF 23 giggles back and forth when focusing (XF56 does the same), it's also clunky and makes noise when focusing (very noticeable in AF-C). I still couldn't believe a so-called top Fuji lens does that.

On the contrary the Zeiss is compact and lightweight, complete silent with silky smooth focusing. And if you can't identify nor acknowledge the Zeiss' unique rendering and excellent microcontrast then that's your loss, not mine.

Again mediocre lens on bigger sensor will always beat out good lens on smaller sensor - exactly the sane case with m43 vs Fuji. Plus all the inherited benefits with larger sensor.

@ Chris

Because as i said ff + mediocre glass is still better than apsc + good glass, and once you pair a good glass on ff it achieves a level that apsc can never reaches.

Same argument applies to m43 vs apsc.

Fuji glass is cheaper and smaller because they only need to accommodate a smaller sesnor, again same goes to m43.

It might be a sweet spot for you, but personally the x-pro2 being the same price as A7II is simply, to put it bluntly, retarded.

Fuji glass is easily 80% of the price, size and cost of sony FE. I rather be a man, pony up the cash and have the better DR/IQ/ISO/IBIS/Video from a ff Sony. (This is coming from someone who has owned and sold X-100T and X-T1 with 18 2, 23 1.4, 18-55 and 56 1.2)

Good glass is relevant for any sensor size.

However no matter how good the glass is it will always be limited by the sensor still.

So you can have the best aps-c glass but a ff sensor with mediocre glass is still better overall. That's why always go for the biggest sensor.

villagranvicent: Great, I can buy the Sigma 35mm Art for Canon plus this adapter or simply buy the same lens with e-mount for my A7.

Only problem of course the fact that Sigma Art doesn't come in E mount lol
