  • The title of that rumor post says it all.
  • Wait, what? What does this have to do with trusting a company? Why? It's going to be a specialty lens, which could cost anywhere from $4000 to $6000. They weren't going to sell millions of them. ...
  • I've tried the same setups, and my D810 is gathering dust. ;) While the larger sensor seems like a no-brainer, it involves a few tradeoffs. It only offers noticeably more dynamic range if you're ...
  • They'd also lose tons of money. Well, tons more money at a time when the camera division is already on the skids. You want more expensive internals and no flip screen, for $200 less than the ...
  • That seems... unlikely. They've made rounded edges on metal cameras for a long time. They can easily make boxier or sharper-edged bodies with plastic. There are tons of new retro-styled cameras. So ...
  • Created discussion thread Oly E-M1 iii and astrophotography
    One of my coworkers is into astro. I don't know what he's using now, but I did just get a marketing email about the "Starry Sky AF," and was mildly curious how the E-M1 iii works for astro. One ...
  • I doubt it. Given the low volume of camera sales these days, the specs will be too close to the E-M5 iii to sell enough units of either one.
  • Created question thread E-M1 ii -- Focus Point Behavior?
    On my previous Olympus bodies, it seemed a little easier to switch the focus points. I usually start by letting the camera pick a focus point; if I didn't like it, I'd hit OK, choose the AF ...
  • Dude? You're grasping at straws. There are rumor sites for every major camera manufacturer, cranking out tiny bits of whatever on a daily basis. Your examples are completely meaningless.
  • And for those who believe that 220g and a few mm here and there are significant, they're also going to be looking at 1" compacts... or just using their smarphones. Again, I'm not saying "no one ...
  • I don't see any proof of that. Neither do Olympus or Panasonic, because if they did see that, they'd change their offerings. Keep in mind that market share doesn't matter. Profits matter. "Losing ...
  • Coul'da fooled me :-D Smaller bodies require sacrifices. While I'm not an engineer, I'm pretty sure that you can't get much smaller than the E-M5 iii form factor without sacrificing IBIS and/or ...
  • Uh huh GM + 12-32 + tele + small prime = 274g + 70 + 190 + 115 = 650g GX850 + 12-32 + tele + small prime = 274g + 70 + 190 + 115 = 650g GX85 / E-M5 iii + 12-32 + tele + small prime = 780g ZS100 ...
  • Well... If it's too small of a device to appeal to enough users, then they can't make a profit on it, and won't make any more. Seems kinda basic to me. Also, keep in mind that M43 lenses are a lot ...
  • As discussed on these boards so many times before: The market for the GM series was just too small to keep putting them out. - Both the GM1 and GM5 were very expensive when they first came out. ...
  • I cannot help but think PARANOIA, PARANOIA, PARANOIA :-D Canon's main rivals are Nikon and Sony. Olympus has a small market share, so it doesn't make any sense for them to set up some sort of Top ...
  • Replied in Oly 12-45 why?
    I might ;-) But I'll wait until the price comes down a little bit. I don't think this will be a big seller, but I'm assuming/hoping it will be bundled with the E-M5.
  • Several camera manufacturers could make it. The problem is that not enough people are willing to buy them to make it viable. That niche market is also mostly covered by cameras like the LX100, ...
  • Replied in Oly 12-45 why?
    People said the same thing about the 12-100, which seems to have found its market. The 12-45 is presumably for all the people who -- rather vocally around here -- insist that M43 is all about being ...
  • Replied in I agree
    Actually, one big reason NOT to release the EM1.3 before the summer is the Olympics. :-D The E-M1x is made for that kind of sports/action photography, so I'm sure they will try to push that body ...
