Ok, I'll never complain again about Olympus lens prices.

derekwolrige: Why is Olympus stubborn and sticking with this format? I feel like they’re going to die off soon.

Why are FFramers so stubborn and carrying all that glass? I feel like they're going to die off soon.

Thankfully, we have a choice. Kudos to Olympus and Fujifilm to stick with their sensor sizes, it's not as if 135 is some magical one-size-fits-all holy size.

Steve in GA: I really wish the big gorillas in pro-am photography (Canon and Nikon) would institute in-body stabilization in all their cameras.

But, I'm beginning to think that the big guys believe that would hurt their bottom line, since people would not be buying their premium, stabilized lenses anymore.

And sacrifice billing 60% extra for IS in lenses? Are you crazy?

Even looking at the downsized inline images in the review, there is definitely some magic there. The colours and textures really 'pop' without being over-saturated.

mezastel: Oh ffs, Hasselblad, all we want is a digital XPan, okay? None of this stuff. Just a digital XPan with a set of 3 lenses and a wide sensor behind it. That's it! That's literally all you have to do to sell a decent amount of cameras to landscape photographers.

DPHI: It would be tempting getting a 5DSR with those lenses just for landscape. No zooms for that resolution.

V Ahrlenz: Seems like a nice enough camera. Seriously innovative. But one time I remember I bought one of those CD Walkman players. The CD's always skipped. I actually bought that 'Toys In The Attic' CD by Aerosmith twice. $11.95 a pop, and same deal, both times. So I don't know. Thanks.

Ken M. Is that you?

itaibachar: Oly needs to rethink their naming strategy.
It used to be OM-1, 2 etc.
Now its a weird bunch of letters and odd numbers.

THANK YOU! This annoys me more than it should. Why didn't they just name it OM-E1?

This is the camera I would get today, if I was investing in a new system from scratch. Fuji is doing everything right with the X system.

(unknown member): Hope it is a mirrorless medium format camera. But the price should be lower than Pentax 645Z. More than 10,000 is meaningless for mirrorless MF.

"But the price should be lower than Pentax 645Z" Thanks for making me chuckle...

HAL2000: Hello there y'all
This baby seems like a very nice one to own
Question ; can it be used on another camera like the Sony A6000 ?
or is it uniquely for the Lumix series ?
thanx !

It's for the Micro Four Thirds system, so I'm afraid that would not be possible.

nerd2: $1K m43 camera that weighs almost 500 grams.

It's quite funny that a7 with 24MP full-frame sensor is actually cheaper and lighter than this.

That is true. As a pinhole only photographer, the a7 is definitely the choice for me.

OBI656: WOW, this cam is HUGE! Not idea if its design for self-defence or take a picture ... in any case, I wonder If I get prepaid bodybuilding sessions in the final price of this camera to be able to carry this brick around.

You could probably knock out a horse with this thing. And then take a picture of it with the same camera afterwards.

In reply to:

(unknown member): Once you have figured out just how tiny the image details are with these lenses on their titchy sensor, you may begin to accept that financially these days to invest in this way on an m4:3 sensor is to throw your money away.

Even on full-frame pro gear detail resolution at 16.7MP (Canon 1Ds MkII)though good is not sufficient to allow you to work at normal distances and see fine detail within the image-texture in cloth, skin etc. Its why I got a D800.

Bought s/h the cost is the same using Nikon D800s and the quality is just so much better.

Size matters

Is this a post from 2005?

Boss of Sony: Apart from video, I can't understand the 4/3 sensor thing, especially in a camera this size. Sony is making the same size cameras or smaller, with APS-C or full-frame sensors.

Yes. If only Olympus or Panasonic would make different cameras, so people could have choice in size...

This is the kind of camera people should buy instead of Rebels with a kit lens (which then never leaves the camera for the rest of its lifetime)

Mike FL: "Sony NEX-6 with 16-50mm" is $519 which is not a bad camera vs this $600 Kodak. For $519, you get:

- Larger sensor
- Build in EVF
- Build in flash
- the Name of Sony
- Cheaper
- (Wifi)

never mind...
