I don't like these weird focal lengths. 28-75, 70-180.
What's wrong with 24-70 and 70-200?

Fuji and Olympus are shooting daisies in the park.

RvEL: @Rishi, if you're about to write yet another mobile camera test, could you please at least add a 1 inch compact, m4/3 and APS-C to the comparison? (FF Would be a bit unrealistic from a price perspective). No matter the software implemented in e.g. a Pixel, I am still convinced that such a small sensor has a hard time to compete with real cameras. Most likely even the 1 inch compact ones. Thanks!

Someone posted a comparison for low light in the forums between P30 and an MFT Panasonic camera. P30 didn't lose.

DeathArrow: I'd love to see a comparison between Pixel 4, P30 and iPhone XS. I'm curious if P30 is still king of low light.

Dxomark rates Huawei Mate 30 Pro as the best for low light. They didn't test Pixel 4 yet, though.

Jonas Palm: Seems like a very likeable camera.
Light, small, great IBIS, weather protected with very efficient sensor cleaning, high eye-point finder, decent hybrid AF.... Plus it’s supported by a wide system.

It a very sensibly practical camera, with enough character that you can actually enjoy it’s company too.

The most I like about it is the vintage tech coupled with a high price. :)

Price is too low. Die hard fans will be happy to pay at least $2000 for this "marvel". Olympus marketing team made a mistake.

gaul: Wooaaaahhhh look how small it is

As a FF user, I would be tempted .. Vs a so-called compact expert as RX 100 or Gx V

Pixel 4 and iPhone XS IQ in a much bulkier package and for a higher price. :)

JJBerlin: Blinded by the FF hype train, most people will underappreciate what this camera has to offer.
Sure, it's Image quality can't match any FF camera, but it's good enough for most situations. It's also a much more affordable system with great lenses in all price ranges. Small size, stellar IBIS and tough enough to handle a lot of abuse. It's the perfect camera for travellers.

I still own the original OM-D E-M5. On my last travel I carried an ordinary messenger bag over my shoulder. Inside werde the camera, four lenses, spare batteries, an additional grip etc...

It can't match lower priced APS-C, FF is too far away from it. What is there to appreciate? Old tech for a steep price? If its price was $600, no one would comment but $1200?

99tollap: Price is a little steep, but with that exception, Oly has done a great job here I think. I'm not sure what else you could want or expect from a small camera in this segment. It has several key advantages over every one of it's competitors without much, if any, sacrifice. Very tempting.

If recycling old technology can be named a great job, you are pretty right. Who doesn't love old tech for a steep price?

In another 3 years, they will release a "new" EM10III with the same specs for $1000. :)

If someone doesn't already own MFT lenses, the question is: why he shouldn't get Fuji X-H1 or Sony a6400 cheaper?

@Magnar W
I hope A7IV will have most of its features, especially the newer AF and better ergonomics.

@Strolic Furlan
Nope as AF isn't as refined and ergonomics isn't as good.

@armadino, both Nikon Z and Sony E can use a lot of adapted lenses. But that's not the point. Having a lens that's designed for mirrorless not only will have improved IQ but better AF. I got it, you don't care about IQ and AF. In that case, you might be best served by your old Rebel. :)

But will Canon have as good an AF? IBIS? Good lens selection?

BobT3218: It seems to me the initial market for this camera is the travelling parent who walks into a duty free store at an airport and says, "I want a camera for my son. I hear Nikon are pretty good. I don't want to pay too much." I'm not knocking it. I think it has great potential as lens options grow.

While his son asked for Nike. :D

In reply to:

xeppelin: there are exactly 2 reasons for APS-C gear: significantly smaller size and significantly smaller price than FF, with photographic capabilities (1 stop handicap) more than sufficient for 99% of market and applications.

Canon EOS M is the only APS_C system in market that delivers 100% on both points: compact size and low price. Along with more than decent enough IQ, good functionality, handling and excellent UI. Max bang for the buck, especially M50. That's why they are market leader by a large margin.

Fuji - 80% of size, 80% of price, limits them to <10% market share, forever.
Sony - meh iteration of A#### bodies, glass too expensive for crop gear (Zeiss) and or subpar.
Nikon - not compact enough due to oversized Z-mount. Value of single mount/"upgrade path" grossly overrated.

EOS M is nice, but only if you don't care about IQ and autofocus. Otherwise, Sony and Fujifilm are better alternatives.
