In reply to:

Paul Graber: Bit confused on the issue of Pro Capture only working with Oly lenses, as reported in the review. On the M43 forum, an Oly rep was quoted as saying that it works with all lenses - and it's hard to understand why it wouldn't. I wonder if the reviewers actually tried it with a Panny lens? (I was hoping to use my Panny/Leica 100-400 with Pro Capture.)

It doesn't work with four thirds lenses with adapter, I've tested it.

ProfHankD: Ok, I'm confused. Being able to shoot 60FPS at full resolution raw would be really important to me. Does this camera do that or not? How many frames can it do that for and can it do that using an (unchipped) manual lens?

Yes 60. Same with an adapter me lens.

On article Nikon's New D5 and D500 Push the Boundaries of DSLR (719 comments in total)
In reply to:

Steve Sanacore: I just can't see how either of these cameras pushes any boundaries... The D5 seems like a small incidental upgrade to the D4 which is a camera really only useful to sports shooters. As far as the D500, does anyone buy a cropped sensor camera these days? I guess it's nice to have options, but I still don't see any boundaries being pushed here compare to Sony, Panasonic, Leica, and Phase who are truly making major leaps in design and features. Glad to see Nikon still trying though.

It is almost like it a SDSLR (super DSLR) instead of a DSLR with all those boundaries being pushed.

The EM1 does 10 frames per second with continuous autofocus, so 12 is not exactly excelling over mirrorless.

Conrad567: The largest problem I can see, is that if you want a film like look to your videos you need to shoot at 24fpp [approx] and @ 1/50th sec shutter speed. This makes it impossible to make a sharp image of certain subjects, cars, kids, pets, trees while there is any kind of breeze etc.

You can shoot at 1/2000 of a second if you want, you just can go below 1/50 of a second at 25 FPS.

Theelderkeynes: Given the M10 uses the same TruePic VII processor as the M1 does this mean the update can be run on the M10 as well? Dpreview hinted in their review of the M10 that the shake problem had been dealt with. Saying:

"The good news is that we didn't find it to be prone to the image shake that can occur with the PEN E-P5."

Why? Is the M10 already running this fix on the TruPic VII or is it another reason???

Olympus needs to be clearer in its communications on this issue and respect its customer base of whom I am one.

The sensors are also made by a different manufacturer, so maybe not?

Anders Ostmoe: Is this a precise observation: "Focus is usually acceptably fast, though anyone coming from an E-3 or E-5 is likely to find themselves disappointed, in comparison"?

Now I have read some other quick reviews and they were far from disappointed. In fact, two of them claimed that focusing was faster with some FT lenses than on the E-5. Maybe they were high on the new camera, but it certainly does sound like the camera focuses as fast as one could expect and hope....

That would be great. From what I've read the 12-60 is limited by the speed of the lens changing focus.

Some of the other previews are saying that the EM1 is better at AF than the E5, which is great, but still substandard relative to Nikon I would guess.

ItsNotThatEasy: Lol...Beards, tattoos, the word "sustainable", pictures tagged "Portland, Oregon" and former musicians who weren't good enough to make it in music so they defaulted to photography. Wow...How many times can you say "Hipster"?

What are you saying? Are you discriminating against people based on their look or musical ability?

The guy started a company from scratch that sold for $50 million. He started it as a free service. He started another company to nurture artists.

You claim to fame is you don't like failed musicians or "hipsters".

space2k: Well then. They are just going to have to give us loyal Olympians a 50% discount on the OM-D to make us forget about this.

Mirrorless Interchangeable lens cameras have 50% market share in Japan, a majority of those being "MFT".

Nikon has a contracting market in which to sell it's D800.

Earthlight: I hope that Sony will buy the Camera business, make the OM-D a little bigger, a proper size camera, slap a full frame sensor in it and sell sell sell those in huge numbers.

Nikon and Canon need even more competition. Instead of Canikon we would have Casonykon.

Interchangeble cameras need lenses.
