Vlad S: When are we going to get 16 bit raw files?

Because I don't have any Nikon gear around to test that I have to believe you.

If the last two digits are nothing but noise then there is no benefit from 14bit.

I will stop posting distracting true facts that will help the conversation. That is a really bad behaviour.

noirdesir: I really would have liked an answer to the question of whether the on-sensor PDAF now also works with m43 lenses (on the Mark I it was limited to 4/3 lenses). I would suppose it now is also used with m43 lenses, but a confirmation would be nice.

My fault. But because I cited from his commend I thought it was clear which comment I am answering.

No, brycesteiner did. "4/3 was limited to only working with PDAF". But all 4/3 cameras since the E-330 in 2006 had live view with working AF and obvously no PDAF. AF in live view was working but very slow. And so it is on m4/3 with no PDAF.

No. It is like I said. The term "4/3" comes from the the video tube. It has nothing to do with the size of the image directly. 4/3 of an ich would be about 33.9mm but image circle is 21,633mm. Also the aspect ratio of 4/3 is not a part of the standard wich only defines the diameter of the image circle. It just hapens to be that the the image circle ob most 4/3 and m4/3 cameras ist just 4/3. The Panasonic GH2 has an oversized sensor which alows use the full image circle with different aspect ratios.

How much is the maximum resolution for the live view image with olympus capture? (Tethering software) Now that this camera has USB 3 it should be much more than with the mark one.

"4/3 was limited to only working with PDAF" is not completely true. The FT-lenses work on all mFT cameras but with inferior AF-performance. All but the oldest FT cameras have live view (olympus was first with live view in DSLR) and the lenses do autofocus in live view. In fact the FT lenses do faster af on most mFT bodys than on FT in live view.

leonche64: This is absurd.

But with a bigger form factor we could have card with even more capacity. Or am I wrong? Do they have to be so small?

arhmatic: Maybe it's just me, but "OM-D E-M1 II" (12 characters total) is a little of an overkill... Why put "E-"? Is there a "non E-" M1? Sure, all letters mean something, but do I care as a buyer? Look at car naming. "Audi Q5" is easy. "Olympus M2" is similarly easy.

This applies, in my mind, to all camera makers. Not picking just Olympus in particular. 2-3 characters would do just fine. Just a suggestion. For simplicity and ease. Win-win for all.

At teddoman: So true!

Just to clarify for everybody who ist reading this: The image circle of 4/3 is not 4/3". 4/3" are about 34mm and the (17.3x13)mm² 4/3-sensor has a diagonal of 21,633mm. Because there is no video tube that produces an image with an diagonal of 43,267 mm we can not use that for the name of the format. But they could use the same protokoll, so that one could use the new lenses with m4/3-cameras via adapter like the can use FT-lenses with mFT-cameras. The Sensor could have an aspect ratio of 4/3. No need for small picture 3/2.

Good question. 4/3" was the diameter the video camera tube had wich was producing a picture the size of the 4/3-sensor. Wich tube size produces 43,267 mm image circle?

They started with the E-1. They called it the E-System. Then they swiched to mirrorless micro 4/3. Now it is E-Msomething. The PEN are all E-Psomething.

aramgrg: Is grip adding 2 more batteries, or you need to remove the internal one to attach the grip?

And you don't have to turn the camera off to change the battery in the grip.

ProfHankD: Hmmm. No doubt this uses a Fuji-designed, Sony-fabbed, variant of what is fast becoming the Sony sensor that is "the APS-C of Medium Format." Impressive they've got so many lenses for it, but, like APS-C, I have serious doubts about the longer term future of this format as "Medium Format." At least this has a short enough flange distance that using FF lenses on it should work -- and covering multi-aspect within a FF image circle is where this size sensor could really shine. Still, is that worth anywhere near $10K for the body?

Do you have more information about the digital 8x10?

If it is the size that matters than it would be intressting. Maybe it is better to have an 4x5 sensor that is not the best than have non. Would be interessting to see what IQ would be possible.

What do we have now? 12-inch wafers? They are 300mm in diameter. So you could theoreticly make sensors with 300mm diameter. (ca. 212mm by 212mm square sensor or 240mm by 180mm for example) But they would cost a fortune.

On article Olympus announces PEN E-PL8 entry-level mirrorless (23 comments in total)
In reply to:

Alphoid: Personally, I find the EPL series to be nice a few generations back, where they sell for $200 or less. I kind of miss the point of a $650 E-PL camera, with the fantastic OM-D models for just a few dollars more, or a few dollars less for last year's model.

Ok, at ebay. I bought my E-P2 as kit with standard-zoom and VF-2 plus 35mm/3.5 with mmf-1 adapter plus a cheap metz flash for 220€ when the E-M5 came out. But I remember it so be more like 250€. I once bought on, sent it back and then purchased the used E-P2 wich I have ever been very content with. It was basicly a tradeoff between tilt screen and second dial. Hard choice for me. But the VF-2 made the tilt screen less important for me.

FantasticMrFox: And it's getting more and more DSLR like with every iteration - seems like it has slowly dawned on DSLM manufacturers that people actually want to be able to hold a camera without getting cramps in their hands, and that requires a certain size and decent ergonomics.

So what was the point of mirrorless again?!

LiveView in the view finder? I like it.
