RedFox88: kodak is now like polaroid: a name to pay for to slap on your product. I've seen polaroid laptops! LOL!

I'm wearing CAT socks right now.

If the 8/2.8 turns out to be good and reasonably priced, I don't see how it can avoid being a hit.

mosc: I don't get it. If you really really must have small, why do you want ILC? Is the lens selection you have to chose from just SO awesome? Is somebody really going to go out and put on the 90% of 4/3rds lenses that outweigh this little thing?

I don't understand the point of an ILC for a tiny camera. If size is the top priority, an internal power zoom just wins. Why would you get a Nikon 1 when there's the RX100? Why would you get the Q7 when there's an S120?

Do people really view ILC as a feature even without carrying multiple lenses? If you buy an ILC camera and keep one lens on it you either have something big enough where ILC doesn't add size/weight (dslr) or something silly.

I get 4/3rds. You want to carry around glass without breaking your back. Cutting the total kit weight makes sense while keeping the flexibility of ILC. But this isn't like that. No sane person would mount a portrait length lens on this thing. Why does it even have an ILC to begin with?

I believe I am sane but I still have the Olympus 45/1.8 on the GM1 right now. I don't think there is anything comparable on the market.

This is a terrible idea.

Look at the protruding black part on that Nokia. Make that part a lens mount and make a body cap lens that fits it. Now we have a smart phone that doubles as an interchangeable lens body with a 1" sensor. I would want one.

In reply to:

maurotandoi: yes, it's the true...for decrease

but worldwide shipments of DSLR and MR like cameras present big differences

DLSR selling growth up (a lot )!!
Mirrorless selling growth down

the mirrorless hype is it over?

see graphs here

DSLR and mirrorless shipments were both down 18%. I find it hard to see either as "growth up (a lot)".

On article Just Posted: Olympus E-PM2 Review (161 comments in total)

This camera is IMHO a wolf in sheep's clothing. It combines a completely inconspicuous look with the size of my GF3 and the IQ of my E-M5. When I tried it in a store, I didn't care for the wheel on the back. May have to give it another chance.

Had to check the article date, but it's too late for April 1st. That is one remarkably bizarre gadget.

mikusa: Don't flame me, but I use Windows Live Photo Gallery. There, I said it.

From there I can add tags, captions, geotags, face tags, and do minor tweaks, etc etc. Or I can right click an image and open it up in PS. I prefer to work directly with my files, rather than with a proprietary database that I might outgrow one day. I still store everything in folders, by month, and then subfolders if I want (2012-12/Christmas Dinner/, etc). I can edit my files in WLPG and it automatically creates a backup of the original if I ever want to go back.

I've dabbled in LR, and I really didn't like it. Perhaps I was using it wrong, but I just felt like I wasn't in touch with my actual files. I'm also just an amateur, so maybe it's different if you're handling 1000s of photos a week.

Anyone else going to join me out of the closet?

Me. Not that I use Windows Live Photo Gallery, but that I want my image files to be my image files, stored into a standard operating system directory structure of my choosing.

In reply to:

ogl: OM-D EM-5 has bad trick with ISO marking.
ISO1600 is 782 in reality. And e.t.c - 1 stop difference.

There is no trick. The problem is with DxO calling their nonstandard measurements "ISO".

I agree with the voters on the top 7 including the order: OM-D, D800, 5Dmk3, D600, RX100, X-Pro1, RX1 are fine cameras and - with the exception of the Canon - ones I would consider owning myself.
