I downloaded the Olympus E-M5 3200 ISO Jpeg.
The info box reports m4/3 45 f1.8 lens while the EXIF lens data say 4/3 50 f2.
Which is the right lens?
And why didn't you use the 4/3 50 f2 also with E-M1 like you did in the last 5 or 6 years for all 4/3 and many m4/3 cameras?
Even if the scene now is different, at least we can compare more easily the files among different Olympus cameras if the lens is the same.
In addition, for the new m4/3 bodies we can consider all 4/3 lenses as native...

In reply to:

King Penguin: Ok it sure is a cute and attractive camera with great form and controls............but why would you purchase this when for the same(ish) money you can have a camera with a sensor FOUR, yes that's right, FOUR times the area, ie, a Nikon D600.

King Penguin,

you are right!
Why would you purchase a Porsche 911 when with the same money you can buy a big Caterpillar excavator with four time the power?
I really don't get it... 😃

On article Pentax announces K-01 K-mount APS-C mirrorless camera (866 comments in total)

As large as K-5, almost the same weight but lacks viewfinder and has a smaller grip...
With all these mirrorless cameras on the market, from Nikon 1 to this Pentax, it really seems that Oly/Pana got it right years ago with 4/3 and m4/3 specifications.
At the moment IMHO m4/3 is the best compromise between DOF, lens dimensions, body ergonomics, total weight.
