Thomas Karlmann: The Oly guy missed, I think, the opportunity to mention the Pro Shooting mode where 14 frames can be captured once the shutter is half depressed -- certainly a help in getting those ball-hitting-the-bat shots we see.

@fuego6

D O N T - T U R N - I T - O N I don't think if get any easier than that unless you are fuego6 who for some reason things it a default setting that is forced onto you.

@fuego6 So you're complaining that someone might turn that feature on and want to waste their hd space? No where does it say it'll be forced onto you...

NeilJones: I always laugh when they say it's also geared towards a working pro sports shooter. Yeah a pro sports shooter would use 4/3 when so many great full frame sports camera's!

As a working pro sports shooter can you tell us how shooting with EM1:2 or m43 has caused you grief?

princecody: I wonder how many people will buy this over the EM1 M2 because of the bargain price?

I'm debating this right now. My mission is to get the Oly12-100 and either EM1:2 or the G85 to replace my E5/8MMFE/12-60/50-200 Zuiko. If I get the G85 I could get the 12-100, a FE and possibly the vertical grip for the same price of the EM1:2/12-1000 and still have weather sealing. I'm too concerned over sensor as either one will be way ahead of the E5.

Either way it great to be a consumer these days, the stuff coming out of Panny/Oly/Pentax/Sigma and all the other non N/C companies is pretty exiting.

Tiefenunschärfe: Small sensor, bulky body, really makes sense.

Yah makes you wonder how tens of 1000's of M43 users get out of bed every day with such equipment.

PanchoVilla: That camera looks huge. Why should I dump my DSLR, if the cameras are the same size? What's the advantage again?

@Naveed Akhtar That's the funny part. These people who biatch about pro lenses being large act like they are forced to buy them and there are no other options at all.

vesa1tahti: The size: m4/3 system was created to minimize the size and weight of bodies and lenses. But this body is almost of the same size with D7200. So, why not to purchase an APS-C camera instead?

@vesa1tahti So, why not to purchase an APS-C camera instead?

I like to support companies that actually innovate instead of stagnate.

@PanchoVilla What's the advantage again?

Companies that are evolving their product lines very fast instead of being scared of properly developing mirror-less since it might rob from their DSLR sales.

Imagine the movement 43 development will have once the lens selection is finalized and more R&D $$$$$$ can go into sensor/af/electronics design.

photomedium: If you pitch an M43 camera as being small and super fast I wouldn't show it looking like a D5 with huge f1.2 lenses. The whole setup seems to be the size of a d810.
I am not sure if the iso is good enough for sports either.
Other than that is a fantastic piece of hardware.

How dare you speaketh of logic here....

This is heading to be a very nice camera but I think I'm gonna skip Oly this time and go for the G85/80 and 12-100 Zuiko if the 12-1000 proves to be a good lens.

sneakyracer: 4/3 sensor is dated imho. They date back to when larger sensors were really expensive. Enthusiasts demand better performance nowadays at the $1000+ pricepoint. All TV/Monitors today are 16:9 as well so the 4/3 format is a bit awkward except for more traditional applications like print (magazines). In very small form factors the 4/3" format is nice but on larger cameras it makes little sense except maybe for the smaller lenses and increased affordability (if any). That does not mean that the OM-D cameras are bad cameras. On the contrary they are excellent just that there are better options for most folks available today.

16:9 Bleh I'll take 4/3 anyday.

km25: That "Red Dot" is so close to rip off of Leica. In the far east Leica are loved. So it will sell there, here?

I agree red dots are fashion accessories.

dansclic: I would never buy from a company who copies Apple and puts non removable spywares in their smartphones. Ethics is important.

@dansclic

But you have no problem buying Apple that was built on Chinese workers suicides. http://www.bbc.com/news/business-30532463 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foxconn_suicides

JEROME NOLAS: Finally some competition from China! Are you watching Canon and Nikon?

Competition is from every person that wants a modern cheap and almost disposable camera. Add in a threat to smart phones...

Jozef M: Those young innovators weren't so innovative as they copied the look from Leica though.

Yah but look at the price they invented. Leica would be incapable of doing or copying that price.

If they include wifi which can hook up to a phone that has hot spot activated and allow an app ecosystem with image sharing apps, this would seriously hit a home run and take a chunk of the phone camera market , especially for Youtube live streaming and such a cheap and affordable price.

I don't know why I'm excited about this but I feel an ass kicking coming on in some part of the camera sector from this little thing.
