Craig from Nevada: Other than battery life, the price is of this camera appears to be it biggest shortcoming. $899 looks about right for this camera. This can be fixed and it will probably happen when the E-M1 II is introduced.

Atholnline,

I wouldn't take the comment by photohounds too seriously. Bad manners on the part on photohounds.

What are you babbling about?

The ad hominem attacks ('whnines') are really childish. grow up.

I agree. What is interesting is just how high they are starting with the MSRP for this camera. The flagship E-M1 can be purchased at a lower price. I guess Olympus believes that the 20MP sensor gives the Pen F a boost in the market.

I guess a few early adopters might be enticed, but most buyers will wait for the aggressive pricing to start on this camera.

Peiasdf: What an unusual decision not to have 80th anniversary edition K-1.

If I am marketing, the first K-1 released would be the limited 80th anniversary edition followed in a few week/month by the regular K-1.

The K-1 will sells itself. No reason to distract the buying public with a special edition.

Fluff like 80th Anniversary editions are for cameras that are further along the product cycle.

Looks like they got a lot of things right with this camera, including the price.

A wildly overpriced retro style camera that is underpowered. How about building something that looks like it is from the second decade of the 21st century and has battery with decent capacity?

Dbosch: Got it as a gift, black. Looks good and feels good in hand. Video refocusing was surprisingly good and smooth, no jumping.

Price is steep , half a grand for 1/2.3" is overpriced in 2015. (399+tax thats around 450$ in Canada.+delivery) should have had at least 1/1.7" sensor.
It's a Porsche 911 with VW Beattle engine.

Henry's had it listed on Ebay for about $280 USD just before the holiday. Free shipping to boot.

The title "Gear of the Year" is somewhat pretentious for what this is--a personal commentary on a modestly priced camera that was obviously the right piece of gear to have on a tubing trip.

There are some complaints below that somehow this is not a legitimate review--perhaps, but it is a thoughtful column by someone who actually used the camera for its intended purpose and is obviously very happy with the results. This is refreshing.

I think this is a nice compliment to the review that was published some months back.

Johnedlt: Is this the first time they pre-announced officially? Wouldn't the norm be for a gadget company to release something into the grapevine (rumor mill) if they wanted to generate interest prior to market? ; )

Does it mean they have something that isn't linear in terms of upgrading the line? Something that will get people to pluck 6Gs again? Haha!

of course.

I have a feeling that Sony is beginning to cut into sales. Tell the faithful something new is on the way before they jump ship.

vFunct: Nikon Pro range are perfect cameras. They do everything exactly what a pro needs.

Compare to something like Sony's Alpha A7 series, which is "almost" but not quite there, and it's obvious how perfectly refined these Nikon Pro cameras are.

Sony Alpha's are good for amateurs, while pros will go ahead and use Nikon.

The trollers are out in force!
LOL

The only thing missing on this camera is aggressive pricing.

This is something that Sony can add anytime.

Craig from Nevada: Terrific image. It has the feeling of an Audubon lithograph--and I mean that in the most complementary way.

Kudos to your lens. The very modestly priced Tamron 150-600mm delivered an image you could work with.

All sorts of great stuff we never knew we needed and something for every budget.

GAS is great and it can be affordable too!

The current Pentax DSLR offers great value---K-3 or K3ii. There is room in the full frame world for a high value camera. I think this is a very smart and necessary move for Pentax.

Apparently Sony believes there is a market for $3,300 full frame mirrorless cameras. I always thought the market would be at $1,000.

Learn something new each day.

As a camera for travel, the size and appearance of this camera won't attract a lot of attention on the street.
