Josh Leavitt: Budget M-mount lenses? What sorcery is this?

Exactly my point.

Simmer down boys. It's just camera lenses.

I am also jumping ship. I've never owned anything but a Mac since the 90's. Microsoft is on a roll and seems to understand the needs of creative professionals better than Apple. Never thought I'd say that. This product is brilliant and transforms the way you work with pixels. My MacBook air is going up on eBay and the Surface Book will replace it soon. Wish I had the budget for the Surface Studio because I'd get one in a heartbeat.

Differences between this and the PL7- It looks different and...? No reason to buy this. Get the PL7 for cheaper and you have pretty much the exact same camera.

cprevost: I love my E- PL7. I don't see anything here that looks like an upgrade? Besides making it a bit more ugly what's the difference?

I see. Looks like the upgrade gets you a nicer camera strap and a few menu items. This makes the P-L7 a great buy.

Donnie G: The next time that you happen to be on a university's campus or at a college sporting event, check out all of those XC10 camcorders that have been issued to the student journalists and film makers there. Lots! And yes, I was surprised too. :))

I have the xc-10 and use it for student led field interview work. Works great for that purpose. It's a great tool for teaching students basics of video production.

This will never happen as it would not increase sales and would lead to many people flocking to android. There is no upside to this for iPhone owners so why would Apple implement it?

peeyaj: And where is RAW support in XC10?

XC10 is a video camera that also happens to shoot stills. Not sure why they even included still shooting as it's mediocre at best. I don't think raw support would have helped much. If you need raw for good images you might as well bring along a real stills camera. This one isn't going to cut it. It's a nice video camera though. Just not one you'd want to rely on for still images.

Needing a camcorder that records more than a half hour at a time that has footage that mixes well with Canon DSLR. This one fits the bill.

robbo2: The optics and processing software look great. My question is will these new smartphones allow transfer of digital camera images through Wifi and/or NFC or is Microsoft assuming that the image quality is so good with the phone itself so that xfer of digital camera images is unnecessary?

I have an Olympus M43 camera and found an app in the Windows store that allows me to control the camera with my phone. Works perfectly on my 1520

Ha! Well in that case I won't buy one because I take awful selfies.

You realize that it is an interchangeable lens camera right? And you aren't required to take selfies with it.

Interesting little camera. Almost makes the GM1 obsolete. Not sure why anyone would get the GM! over this camera. It never ceases to amaze me how many people get really angry when a new camera is introduced into the market. Relax people, Panasonic didn't introduce this model to upset you. Why you mad?

wine540: I respectfully disagree. I too have an unhealthy knowledge of Olympus menus having survived ownership of the an OM-D EM-5 and P5. Customizing this camera is child's play for me. I've used it for birding trips, scenics and casual Grandpa photography. What concerns me is that the sensor behaves as well or better than the EM-1. It is so easy to use and carry around. Pictures using the unlikely combination of camera+ Pany/Leica 25 mm are scary good. As a second camera of a MFT system user this is the best PEN yet!

The menu points are well taken. I am fairly familiar with the Oly menu but find myself frustrated on occasion just trying to find particular thing and not knowing exactly where to dive in on the hugely expansive menu. Mostly it's not an issue because much of it is "set it and forget it."
