User2089854316: Need for Samsung to convert this one into the next Galaxy Camera. At least the sensor and imaging engine, add 5x zoom, and maintain Android.

Due to the limitations of physical space, a zoom isn't something you will find in current phones.

Olympus phoned and wanted to congratulate Zeiss on their original choice of camera name.

milkod2001: 'Only the display at $72.50'' Such a small display and so expensive. I presume one Samsung division is overcharging another in order to justify the final phone price and to push taxes company has to pay down? The real cost for display cannot be more than $5 and that includes R&D.

Samsung invested at least $7 Billion to increase OLED panel making capacity just to supply Apple. If Apple sold 50 M iPhone Xs they would need to charge Apple $150 per panel just to defray the initial outlay, let alone pay for operating and other costs of actual manufacture or profit. Probably Apple is tied into a multi-year contract for a lot more than just 50 M panels.

rfsIII: Yeee haaaa!!!! Finally, the phone of my dreams. As a person who shoots events from time to time and needs to upload photos to client websites while the event is happening, this camera will solve a lot of problems for me.

Nokia 1020 at a fraction of the price?

topstuff: Nice glass.

Im hoping for future Oly cameras to have the improvements in AF needed to do it justice. They aren't really up to shooting fast moving stuff at the moment IMO. Im sure it will improve.

yeah, can't handle moving stuff:

Valentinian: and a TC 1.4 compatible with this lens only!

That's OK, I doubt it needs you either.

In reply to:

CameraLabTester: A very interesting poll.

In fact, very tempting for forensic analysis.

One example of the many analysis that could be done:

Take the top 3 contenders.

Remove the votes with accounts less than 1 week old before the polls.

Remove the votes from those coming from only one computer. (multiple user names)

Lets see how the graph would look like...


Let me guess, you aren't happy with the way the results are going and you are paranoid.

Sunilkp: I don't understand the point of this vote.wouldnt the Nikon users say its the d800 and canons say its the 5d mark3. The best camera should not be judged by us but by independent consultants.

Independent of what?

Welcome to the democratic process.

In reply to:

jorden mosley: For those who've owned or used both the D800 and the EM-5: would you say that at iso 3200-6400, that the EM-5 has an equal amount of noise as the D800?

Many users are managing sharp one second exposures with the E-M5, hand-held, due to the IBIS. So you can effectively use a lower ISO than you could with almost any other camera.

If you habitually use a tripod, then the equivalent ISO noise is obviously valid, but the E-M5 is going to let you use a several stops lower ISO than almost anything else will if you are shooting hand-held.

D1N0: The OM-D EM-5 (impossible name) is a fan boy camera. The fan boys are not going to like this, so a small piece of advice. Don't react to this post. It'll just prove my point (if you don't react to this post, you will also prove my point).

Have you stopped beating your wife and kids yet? You are only allowed to answer Yes or No.

napilopez: Hmm. I think too many people are taking this poll too seriously. Honestly, do you think everyone reading this poll doesn't already know that your choice of "best" will vary by preference, priorities, and opinions as to what's good? Yes, it's an apples and oranges poll, but not without some overlap. Everyone has a different idea of what being the best is. In my head, it's a combination of innovation, balance, and pragmatic usefulness. As I said in my previous post, I think the OM-D achieves those qualities best, but your mileage may vary.After all, it is a *poll*. I think the D800 is a wonderful camera, one of the best ever made(certainly regarding image quality), but I also think it lags behind the OM-D, D600, RX1, and RX100 in an overall pragmatic and innovative sense.

Simply put, can I not ask you whether you prefer apples or oranges, even if they're different kinds of fruits? I certainly think apples taste better.

Are you aware that someone compared the Leica M with the E-M5, and most people couldn't tell which was which?

They sure could tell the difference when they looked at the price difference!

sorry - comment is meant to be a reply to xtoph below.

quickon: I think Nikon D800/E is the best DSLR there is now.
With the camera on a tripod and a good lens at f4-5,6 the result is incredible

Same for the E-M5, except you can skip the tripod ;-)

vFunct: How long before the iPhone camera has an image stabilizer? I know cell phone cameras are starting to put them in already.

Image stabilization could add 4 stops of light-gathering, a huge improvement, plus reduce camera shake for video.

Who cares?

Just get the Nokia Lumia 920 which has mechanical sensor IS. But even for that I would take 4 stops with a pinch of salt.

I wonder if it is just a Saphire coating because Saphire has lower light transmission than glass at under 90% for most wavelengths.

bradleyg5: I could get a Rebel T2i and a 85mm F1.8 combined for 939 dollars(to this at 900$)... plus the rebel would give a slightly more usable effective 136mm focal length. Doesn't make sense to me, all 85mm F/1.8 lens are great, especially in the centre 1/4 of the image circle. Olympus puts a metal casing on it and expects more than double the going rate...

The president of Olympus has admitted the sensor in the E-M5 is made by Sony.

What was that you said about DXO?....LoL
