Looks like a solid landscaping lens...

Shame about the removal of the off camera flash, I use an FL36R with the MK1...

rvdzee: I don't understand all the dismissive remarks here. I have a Nexus 5X (Google's phone before the Pixel) and it is absolutely amazing in low light. When I need a picture of a group of people in a low-light situation (e.g. a restaurant), needing some some depth of field, this phone beats my 5DMII, A5100 and EOS R. And indeed, in other situations these cameras are far superior, but for these cases I seriously bring my phone as the preferred camera.

It's called jealousy...

Naveed Akhtar: it's sad to see Pany left its old buddy Oly out of this L mount partnership!

Personally I like the OM-D EM-10 size with the m.Zuiko14-40mm f2.8 and 40-150mm f2.8. If I'm going to carry a bigger camera/lens combo, I'd rather go with an MF sensor. That where I think Oly should have gone; brought out a compact mirrorless MF like 50S/X1d...

In reply to:

razorfish: It’s so pathetic (in the literal meaning of the word) that dpreview keeps using the term «full frame» about the 35mm sensor size. There is nothing «full» about this sensor size, it is just a remnant from the days of analogue film. Actually, the first time this term was used about a 35mm digital sensor was by Canon when they launched the original 1Ds, so it was a marketing ploy right from the beginning, and it is just sad that so-called objective review sites have bought into this.

Hahaha my Oly em10 is full frame! What they mean is it is 35mm sensor, right noobs!

Not really in to portraits, like 1 and 2. I suppose like any good art they make you take a long look...

Greg VdB: Nice to see DPR covering this issue! It won't matter to most people, but the astro community (like that in DPR's Astrophotography Talk Forum) certainly values any pressure applied to Sony for them to provide a simple on/off function through firmware.

It matters because the camera does not have a raw mode.

(unknown member): 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.

In reply to:

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

In reply to:

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...

(unknown member): 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...
