This is the kind of camera that I do not understand, especially the decisions making by the brands.
This is entry level in the X series camera so this is for those who are beginning photographers.
selfie? nope because it does not have full screen articulation.
Video? yes, mix jack? yes but no full articulation lcd?
Seriously, why Fuji still do not have full articulation screen?
USB 2.0......sigh
$900??? Well good luck Fuji
I hate incremental updates.

BarnET: Don't get the hate. It's affordable, shoots 4k and looks like fun.
Sure in absolute image quality there are better options. But those won't have such a extensive feature set or they burn a bigger hole in your pocket

You should watch their marketing video. A lady is doing selfie and yet olympus could not be bother with self articulating screen. This camera needs to have that type of screen. Also is overprice, should only be at $450 USA. The hate is that there is no sensor upgrade and tiny and i mean tiny updates for a $650 camera? GTFO

Jefftan: How expensive that 20MP sensor can be if cheap Yi M1 can use it

By protecting the $2000 E-M1 II , Olympus deliberately downgrade E-M10 III

Olympus is not Canon (which has been doing this for years)
in a very touch market when all entry level APS-C include the 3 years old A6000 has 24MP
This is a very dangerous move. Let's see what happen

although margin may be low but volume make up for it
entry level is arguably more important to a company than high end

All they had to do was add a fully articulated screen, mic jack, kept the same and that would have been made a difference.

panchorancho: This will be dead in the water once it hits the shelves!

I just read that it has no mic input. so no need to buy this then.

DRNottage: The back on the stupid thing is ALL touch screen- impossible to hold. AND overpriced. They can keep it.

What is the point of having good specs if it's impractical to use? Take a look at the OMD, MOST bought the additional grip so they can hold it much better.
No matter how good a specs is, if it's not practical to use then it is useless.

In reply to:

OneGuy: I have GF1 w/20mm 1.7 and I like it very much. Got a polarizing filter that makes the lens very dark (and very cool). I have no cover/bag for it because I don't want to hide any of it (and so far it's holding up well).

I am not looking for another lens but for another body to go with the 20mm lens. I routinely get high quality 30x40 cm (usually family) prints and that to me is the wow factor. Looking to upgrade means getting 40x60 high quality prints (again, routinely). GX1 didn't do it, mainly because I did not read anything about large format printing. I was ready to go with GF5 but it isn't available as body-only. I am tickled by Oly OMD EM5 but my eyes roll at 1k body-only price.

So here comes GF6. Hope springs eternal. Nice curve. One down, few to go.

I don't think one guy knows what he's talking about. gf6 uses the same sensor as GX1 but uses diff. processor.

Aleo Veuliah: This camera is better than I though at a first sight.

For those who like it small and with good IQ and lot's of features it is really good.

I am waiting to see what Panasonic Lumix have done with the G6, it will be launched later this month.

smaller? it's a bit thicker than the e-pl5 and e-pl5 uses the omd sensor and this uses the gx1 sensor. e-pl5 is much better in everyway except wifi and nfc

mrsfixit: I'm looking to upgrade from a Canon G11. The Sony NEX-6 interests me, but now so does this camera.
It has a tilting screen and built-in flash, those are the 2 things I can't live without. I really could give a hoot about GPS or a hot shoe, I just want something better than my aging G11...

nex 6 is much better in everyway. do not overthink.

In reply to:

yabokkie: so they will still need another version with a flash shoe?

a pop-up takes more room and makes the camera bulky.

a pop-up also gives an impression the camera is light challenged.

the nex-6 is thinner than gf6 and e-pl6 and has a flash, VF and APSC sensor, so what are you saying?

Look at the lx7, has a flash ad hotshoe.

Andrew Booth: I have a GX1 and like it, although I find the sensor dynamic range noticeably poor.

Disappointing that Panasonic continue to use this same sensor for another year - even though they have better ones available (and Olympus has much better sensors).

^^^ yet the e-pl5 has OMD sensor.

vroger1: Another Kiddie Camera in the GF Line. The GF1 was great- the GX1 even better- this???? Let's wait for the GX2!

nonsense!
GF1 has the controls and the was suppose to be mass market? The gf1 looks like gx1 and gx1 is FROM gf1.
GF6 has a mode dial, so it does not make sense. As of right now, panasonic is very confuse, even they said that during their announcement few months ago.

gl2k: @dpreview

If you compare them sizewise please add an external viewfinder to the Panny, otherwise you compare apples to oranges.

They're right to do it. Note that samsung and sony has APS-C sensor. Why can't panasonic make the body smaller as their sensor is smaller than APS-c!? If it's possible then why not!? BODY wise, it is fair to compare.

xpanded: So Panasonic takes the same route as Sony. Launching an EVF that is not backwards compatible. Shame on you.

Olympus manage their EVF connection to be future proof from the beginning of the E-P2 and the rest of the EPL series. Why couldn't panasonic? So it is technically possible to foresee the future.

Nope. NEx 3 and 5 never had the EVF connection in the first time, but the GF1 and lx5 had it. Sony Sony gets a pass
