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

This is the E-5 successor and Terada said there would be a successor to the E-620...

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.

Hmmm m4/3rds tend to be software corrected lens. Will it be up to f2.8-3.5 11-22mm, 14-54mm, 50-200mm Zuiko Digital. In three lens you've got it covered in terms of quality and coverage chuck in Pany Leica 25mm f1.4... 12-60mm SWD distortion at 12mm put me off...

That'll be deal while I'm saving up for my large format camera 20x24 inch. Yep that's no typo there 20x24 inch film and yep that's more than 50cm on one side. Load the film up lads. On a serious note the Zuiko and the Sigma are round the 800g mark it will interesting to see how much 35mm version weighs in at...

abolit66: 2.8 is not fast enough for 4/3 format. it's 24-80 f 5.6 equivalent on FF

Speed and depth of field is different...

Gas on a whole other level...

goshigoo: From Dof prespective; it will act like 85 f/2.4 on 35mm FF

a 6D + 85 f/1.8 will have shallower Dof
Also, IQ wise, 6D + 85 f/1.8 @ f/2.4 could be better than this lens

35mm FF still has it's value when shallow Dof is needed

35mm so so, might as well go the full monty and medium format or large format. 35mm can't compete with the lens. These crop sensor systems complement a MF system very well...

Haider: 24MP is useless for TV slideshows, 8x10 or A3 prints. You'd rather just have bigger photosites to give you even better DR and low-light/available light performance. The lens required to make big enough prints for 24MP ain't in the price range of the camera body purchasers???

The larger the photosite akin to having a bigger bucket to catch light-in. The bigger the bucket the more lights levels (DR) you can catch before it clips.

Reilly could you please elaborate?

Mike how about zooms?

Uran: This is not quite what I was expecting, I like the 3500 Cam the FPS still slower than my D300 with a grip, so for fast moving animals we are forced to buy the D4 or look to the Canon 7D 2 as a bang for buck option.

You mean Joe Cornish. Of course is just a noob photographer. That east-end boy David Bailey, he is such a noob. Steve McCurry he is a big noob. Nick Brandt a noob amongst noobs. Mister vFunct you are a big time photograher. Can we look at some of your work please?

007peter: Based on the spec.... OMG, it is freaking AWESOME. I hope the upcoming Canon 70d in March will be able to compete. It seem like Nikon is making all the right moves lately.

It's looks good but it's evolutionary not revolutionary...
