quietrich: Cons: "•16MP starting to look a little dated"

Because we are all buying into the marketing bs? Nope, having exhibited 36 x 24 inch prints in a London exhibition, produced from a 16mp sensor, I can honestly say that 16mp is a perfectly usable res. Don't buy into the marketing BS guys - 16 is plenty!

Hi Brendon,

For most casual photographer who display there shots on the web or print them off at 7x5, 16MP. I have about less than 1 percent printed at 8x10. The E10 is not a pro or even a pro-am camera. It's very much a consumer camera/beginners camera. It majors on smaller size total size (lens+camera). I would be happier with 8-10MP with the bump in low-light and dynamic range improvements the bigger photo-sites would bring coupled with smaller file sizes. If you need bigger print m4/3->APS->35mm->MF->LF depending on the red you want.

Micro Four Thirds is full frame. The camera senor captures the full frame provided by the lens. I should not have to point out such elementary facts to a camera review site.

cannotshoot: I don't why some of you are still buying crop cameras. This Leica T is so over rated. My sony rx1 is so much better and it stopped me from buying new cameras year after year.

3mm MILC and DSLRs are too big and bulky. I was looking to get a digital system for Oly OM-2n & Zuiko 24mm f2.8, 28mm f2.8, 35mm f2.8, 50mm f1.4. Never happened ended up with OM-D E-M10...

LF Photography: As per usual, Leica delivers a decent camera in a quality case for a ridiculously overpriced amount of money, all of it surrounded in marketing hype and BS, and intended for the elite members of the "more money than brains" club.
Personally, I prefer to buy a DSLR that is actually worth the money spent on it. But than again, I'm not rich, so what do I know...

That's pretty much true across the board with DSLRs and MILC you can't just buy a new more modern digital back. Never had a Leica and don't really have the inclination to. From what I know Leica offer top draw lens. Lens last, as they can used by different bodies. So that's where I see the advantage of Leica. The best lens cost money on any system as the market for those lens is smaller so you're not going to be able 'stack'em high, knock'em cheap'.

They should cut it down the megapixels to HDTV res . Increase the size of the photosites spend time on trying to boost the ISO and still give a good photograph. If they can crank up the ISO and still get good quality for a multi-purpose.

It does not looking like a photograph, it looks like a water-colour. It looks like something from Tony Hart's gallery...Disqualify

Biowizard: As an E-1 user of around 10 years' standing, and having shot many thousands of images on its "mere" 5Mp sensor, I have been waiting patiently for the "right" successor. It wasn't the E-3. Nor the E-5, and I have been very happy hanging onto the E-1. Never had even one single dust speck on an image, so have never needed to clean the sensor. Only ever had one stuck pixel, and the in-camera pixel mapping sorted that out within a few seconds. I love everything about the E-1, though miss the option a higher pixel count, and newer features like wireless flash, WiFi, etc.

Sadly for me, the OM-D E-M1 is NOT the replacement I've been waiting for. I wanted full-size 4/3, with optical viewfinder. Doubtless I will motor on for a while with my beloved E-1, but sorry Olympus, my NEXT camera is going to be Nikon or Canon :-(

[Edited to correct a couple of typos]

never had an E1. OM-2n (dad's) a few compacts then E-500. Hear a lot about the E-1 ergonomics...

SushiEater: Focus issues? How about testing OEM lens in the same under less-than-ideal conditions? Are you kidding? White horse "miles" away with no contrast to focus at all at F1.4, seriously?
How about testing on Nikon instead of Canon? There are so many variables here that it is hard to believe this review.

Just use a split-prism DOH! This way you know exactly what you're focussing on. AF is over-rated.

Michael Jardine: Looks great! But my entire reason for adding M43 to my stable is portability. I can't put my D800 into my jacket pocket. I can with my Pen(s), plus a lens or two. So the Pen lives with me, the D800 lives in the backpack. The EM1 would live in the backpack.

Under 1kg for getting ready to first dance is what you need. Imagine hand holding for over 12 hours...

Haider: When is the E-620 successor coming out? Oly remember the E-620 body only is about £500...

I like the E-M1 grip. I'm more concerned about handling and ergonomics than a style statement. It's the right size and with lens and battery under 1kg - the right weight. IQ should be fine for 8x10 and A3...Time for the OM-D lite to make an appearance...

whawha: Its a beautiful camera, but it competes in price with full frame SLRs and judging by the samples the high ISO quality is not even close.
Having said that, if high ISO are not your priority this could make a perfect travel camera - small, light and weatherproof.

If you're into high iso then 35mm and low MP count is better. Horses for courses...All round system 4/3 is good. Good zooms, enough DOF control for subject isolation, in three zoom lens you can cover 14-400mm...

NikonScavenger: I have a problem paying that kind of change for what is still an m4/3 sensor.

Will we eventually see m4/3 gear approaching that of an FF camera like the D600 or 6D, because we're very close... and it's not even fair to compare the two.

MF format sensors are x4 bigger than 35mm. 35mm is only x2 bigger than 4/3...

PenGun: Makes no sense to me. The Fuji X cameras will just murder it in almost every way and cost less.

If you want quality large format (50x60cm film) only way to go. Lens quality to boot. Forget the rest be the best. Trust one see one of those prints you know what quality is...

FocusBogus: OM-D E-M1 sounds messy. Why not simply OM-D2? And then cheaper models OM-D20, OM-D200...

PEN is a weird choice for a camera name... it sounds like what I have in my pants.

It's history OM-1 was originally called M-1. Leica objected and Oly changed the OM-1. If you have the one with M-1 it's a collectors item now. OM-D E-M1 just right.

Haider: Has to top Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 DC HSM Lens £650...When the Oly f2 Zooms came out on 4/3rds they were hot stuff...

Plus the sensor size is gonna play havoc with the IQ. Vignetting, corner sharpness , and all the other compromises start coming. APS would be interesting but in about three zooms you have coverage and quality.
