maciek sz: This is a serious question, not a hate game - what is the reason to buy this over X-T1 or A6300 if the Olympus is bigger in dimensions? I don't get it really, you get in both cases bigger APS-C sensor... I understand models like EM10, but this? Why?

Because you like Olympus cameras. Why buy a Ford over a Chevy?

roninlim: unapologetically very expensive,small sensor but big size camera

How small do "Anything below a Canon 5D or Nikon 750 is not ergonomic for *me*" is as stupid a declaration as 'why are you driving that little car when you can now buy a Hummer' I mean they're so much bigger *for me*

noflashplease: How much would anyone pay for depth of field that's equivalent to a 50mm F/2.4 lens? To put it another way, a slow F/2.4 "Nifty Fifty" selling for $1,199 wouldn't be all that nifty at all, now would it?

If M43 still has a future outside of videography, it's as the low end, hence the new Yi camera body and cheap 42.5mm F/1.8 prime.

I wonder why you care how much a lens you won't buy costs.

zodiacfml: Nice but one has to be really a die-hard fan to purchase such.

What is the point of your comment?

Chaitanya S: Its nice to see that Olympus slowed down the upgrade cycle, also they didnt drop the value of older em-5 over its life cycle. Eagre to see the reviews of new camera soon.

He would have to stop dreaming to do all that.

FocusBogus: OM-D E-M5 II? How creative again... Why not simply OM-D6?

OK, it is a nice camera with high res mode.

Yeah, Yahoo News said they folded last year. Somebody should tell Olympus.

Gesture: The body alone should be no more than $300.

Why not $100?

richteed: Apart from the control dial, it's not really offering me much more than my epl-3, which I love. Looks like I'll be waiting for the epl-8 or maybe getting a secondhand omd5. C'mon Olympus ... It's high time you started innovating again or I might just jump ship to panasonic or Sony.

Please jump!

photo perzon: That large and no flash, no LCD screen that does selfies. I'd rather a PL5 with VF4.

I'm sure there are cheaper ways to satisfy your selfie needs. PL5 with a VF4? Go for it!

nathondetroit: Olympus had one shot, and that was a 17mm 1.8 kit @ $999.

$1450 can get you a better sensor and viewfinder in the X100s, or get you started with a body+fast prime in any number of DLSR lineups… It just doesn't make sense to pay such a premium for less image quality.

nathondetroit Dude you just saved yourself $1400 you should be happy and shut up about it. Now go shoot something with your cheaper yet better camera.

In reply to:

BJN: Meh. You get a more compact camera only if you don't use the add-on EVF. If you do, you have a bigger, bulkier package. And you have fiddly caps that need to cover the vulnerable accessory port behind the hotshoe and the protruding connector below the EVF. Unless you never or rarely intend to use an EVF, go for the better integrated E-M5.

Being the Best is not always the most popular. Is that what you meant to say?

igorek7: OMD - evf + wifi + 1/8000 + peaking + a few more new features. However, the same "vintage" design, the same lack of improvements in video, the same idea that starting price should be twice more than expected.
Fortunately, the micro four thirds system provides a good choice of the alternative cameras.

This would be really great for $100 but at $1000 it's only great. Someone buy me one so I can stop posting how much it cost... um, how broke I am.

Ybor: OMG...this camera (even at this price) would have been great about a year ago. To introduce as they have makes it no better than Panasonic putting GH3 sensor into latest down the chain model, making it so yesterday. Add to this that the price is about $100 higher than I anticipated. That said, the kit with the evf and 17 1.8 for $1,499 is a pretty fair deal (even with the not so sharp lens that it is).

If only this would cause a price reduction in the OM-D...like down to $799 for body.

What i really, really meant was...

Edmond Leung: I think this is the right time for Olympus and Panasonic to think about FF cameras.
In the long run, there is no way for 4/3 to compete with FF cameras.

Too deep for...?

They are full size.

Naveed Akhtar: lovely.. its interesting to see how Oly and Fuji are matching their camera specs to specs. earlier their enthusiast compacts X10 and XZ-1 and now this one against F770exr

What are you "just saying" (?) Fujifilm's F770EXR about $320.00 Olympus SZ-12 about $ 179.00. Who woulda thunk one was better than the other... oh, you thunk it alright. Thanks for your insight.

Diopter: It must be a wonderful tool for a demanding photographer as many previous advanced cameras from the Olympus.
But the styling is none! Ugly, chaotic box with unconvincing "retro" pretenses.

35mm was never "top of the game" in the day. I worked and shot in car studios 'back in the day'. 35mm was there but really not a starter, never first team, never ever top of the game. what ever that is supposed to mean.
