RichardCass: Regardless as to what's been leaked (almost certainly officially leaked in a managed way, aka, cheap advertising), confirmed or whatever, truth is that no-one other than a few reviewers and Olympus themselves knows what the picture making capabilities are like yet.

It's pictures that count - editors don't care how they are captured.

I find it a bit odd that something that hasn't even been seen yet prompts so many posters to writie it off as terrible compared to xyz camera.

Why take a position on something you have never used?

mr.izo: here's one fine review
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Ky2QXExYC4

it seems sharp and all that, but barrel distortion is above average on 17 mm, imo, so maybe not that great for architecture etc.

If the goal is avoiding barrel distortion, the Nikon 16-35 would be less than ideal. It's a very good lens, but nearly a fisheye, until you apply a ton of software correction.

MrBrightSide: I predict this camera will bring joy to photographers and incite spluttering moral outrage among those whose creativity is as stunted as their souls.

No idea what this means, but I wholeheartedly agree.

Obviously, you already have the camera but I guess there is nothing DPR can do but play along.

It looks like a cookie to me. But I don't see any of those plastic rings from 6-packs so I guess it's pretty far from here.

Imager of: Hahahaha. Did they not market this to vloggers and yet have no stabilisation in body! What a joke.

None of this is funny.

jay jay02: What's all the excitement about? Did someone just release a new PlayStation? That'll get all the button sniffers excited 😂😁

It's in San Diego, in January, and it would not come as a suprise if Sony is paying. What's not to like?

This sounds great. I lose my phone maybe twice a month.

lacikuss: I wonder if this interview was used by Canon, to stop hemorrhaging their market share...

They clearly missed the opportunity with the EOS R and now the consequences.

It's a conspiracy to make sure they don't become the second most popular brand but it won't work with the DPR crowd.

Protogonus1: Why is this in a "photography" web site? Thankfully, this is the year REAL updated MFT cameras (from Olympus) will be emerging, starting 24 Jan 19. You can bet (except for extraneous video capabilities, about which we care naught) these will be top-of-the-line CAMERAS for real photography and serious photographers who love STILL photography.

DPR is a camera website. That's very different from a photography website.

sportyaccordy: I just don't know who the market is for these cameras. If a M43 shooter wants FF they probably have it already. Videographers might be interested, but the GH5/s exist. And supposedly the cheaper body is $3K? Will it be $1K better than a Z6/A7M3?

Every camera is built like a tank, and for the relentless pursuit of perfection.

In reply to:

Beshkno: $600.00 for a 50mm f1.8?? As the ILC market drops, the prices keep going up.

It's a 50mm lens. 50mm lenses became popular not because of Henri Cartier-Bresson; they became popular because they came in the box with your camera. The reason a 50mm lens was included with the camera was that they were cheap to make. It would be interesting to see what an $80, 50mm lens can do on a 40 megapixel camera.

In reply to:

vscd: $700-$800 is really something new for a 50mm f1.8. It should be a stellar f1.4 for this pricetag.

They have it both ways. Want a fast 1.4 lens? That will cost you. Want a portable 50mm f/1.8 lens? That will cost you. But give the industry credit; they have made the 50mm lens into a very desirable accessory or upgrade.

VENTURE-STAR: Another somewhat pointless idea from Canon, that will be of little interest to most users. How about doing something of real benefit to your customers, like reducing the rip-off price of you chipped camera batteries and chipped printer cartridges?

As them for a refund.

MannyZero: "... ‘features an agnostic operating system’..."
AGNOSTIC,,,(??!!!)
ag·nos·tic
/aɡˈnästik/
noun
noun: agnostic; plural noun: agnostics

1.
a person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond material phenomena; a person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God (Urban Dictionary)

OMG...!! This is serious crap!!

If a camera can be sexy, a system can be agnostic. But for these things to happen, a camera would have to be a person, like a corporation, for example.

sh10453: Making this FF camera with an L-mount, and getting Sigma's support is a very smart move.
If they price it right (to compete with the Sony A7-III), then it is most likely that they'll have a successful product.
The one issue remaining is to see the performance of its AF after the launch.
Yes; I am very highly interested in this camera.

Off topic, but since someone mentioned it, who sells a 5D4 for $3500 in the US? Even without rebates, free handgrips and/or gray prices under $2000, you'd have a hard time paying $3500.

capeminiol: "Operability without compromise"

With a price to match! ;-)

Beats "pursuit of perfection" which, like "built like a tank" applies to everything.

hypnotictortoise: "Everything without compromise" does not bode well for affordability.

They are apparently not going to compete on price or compactness. I assume this is the advice they got from Leica. Whatever, it's good that they seek and take advice rather than keep everything under wraps and and later discover the ergonomics are bad or it needs a few more card slots.

fedway: This is what happens when you let engineers loose in a company without adult supervision. They'll come up with a technology marvel for a very small market segment that is overpriced and over-featured for most people. Meanwhile where is the E-m5 mark 3? Pdaf in the pen-f? 20mp sensor in the E-m10 and epl lines? Good pancake primes? Profits for the shareholders?

Their shareholders are not doing fine, unless they bought in right after the accounting scandal, but it's true Olympus has always had more stable businesses than cameras.

I wish they would continue to leverage the small size of m43 with a Pen-F II. A few more megapixels and fewer features to get the menus under control, would be great. And yeah, hand-held high res. I don't see how, but a truly small 80mp camera would be impressive.
