None is for me, as long as the prices are like this...

straylightrun: Body Price costs more than a FF camera... Check.
Size just as big as a DSLR.... Check.
Lens prices more expensive than DSLR lenses... Check.
No shallow depth of field for creative subject isolation... Check.

What are the advantages???

Have you actually used 40-150mm f2.8? I don't look at charts. Just go out there and take real photos.

davev8, why do they need to be f1.4? I look at aperture values and do not care much about DOF. 40-150mm f2.8 has already thin razor DOF and I'm not interested in sharp pupils and blurred lashes.

This price is high, I agree and is prone to drop quite fast. And it must drop.
EM1II and 12-40mm f2.8 is waaay lighter and smaller than any APSC or FF counterpart.
If you look at charts and tables and numbers, EM1II's image quality looks bad. If you go out in the field and take real photos, then things change dramatically.

Max Iso: Im sure the pro build and all is priceless to some, and im sure the EVF is better, but i just can't see the price difference in results i am likely to get between this and a GX85 or G85. Now that Panasonic is adding 5 axis IBIS and still have their advantages, i just don't see the EM1 II being more than twice as good. It might be a more capable camera overall but just not worth that price.

Im sure others will see the opposite though.

I meant, D7200 is excellent but D500 is even better. Just like GX80 vs EM1 II.

On article Fast Five: Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V Review (406 comments in total)

So RX100 VI will be "only" 1200$, and RX100 VII will only be 1500$. Then VIII can be priced 1800$ because it'll be faster then VII. Oh, and IX... That can be 2000$ because it'll be the fastest RX100 camera ever!

How can they have the same weight? There is about 350 grams difference. Plus, 12-100mm and 24-120mm are not comparable.
I agree that 2000$ is on the high side though. Olympus should pull it back to about 1600$.

I think the camera is excellent, probably one of the best in the market. Still the price for body seems high.

Size is not as big as a DSLR that is as capable. It is as big as an entry level DSLR at most.
Comparable lenses have very high optical quality, and are small and light.
You can get a sharp iris and blurred eyelash with f1.4 and f1.4 m4/3 lenses, and you have f0.95 and f1.2 options as well but why do you call this "creative"? To me, it's laziness.
EM1II is a little more expensive than I wished for, on the other hand it's extremely capable and durable and if you are not printing huge sized 300DPI pictures, image quality is very very good. In fact, mostly you'll not have to use high ISO thanks to the best-in-class IS.
One advantage to you: Try to pack an 800mm lens in your shoulder bag or have a high quality kit with 40mm equivalent lens in your jacket's pocket, cos I can with m4/3.
I have had D700, 5DMarkII, D800 and 5DMarkIII. Now I bought D700 again because it's sooo cheap but still I prefer EM5II because D700 + 85mm f1.8G is 4 times big and heavy than EM5II and 45mm f1.8.

Think like D7200 vs D500

Then you go and buy D7200

akjos: Olympus has officially lost their mind... no matter how cool and awesome the camera may be, m4/3 sensor is m4/3 sensor and will NEVER match full frame ones. $2000 price is insane when you can get awesome new in box FX D750 for example( which i own) for 200 less now...
I shot and owned just about any sensor size cameras my current kit is d750 and bunch of lenses, g7 and 5 lenses and nikon j5. Sold 2 fujis .
No matter how good the m43 camera is IQ will never equal full frame . The dynamic range and iso performance is just not there. And never will be.( physics) .
Dont get me wrong i have fun shooting with just about anything even with my j5 but olympus may have set their ambitions and prices little too high this time. Market is very competitve...
Would i like to have it? Sure... but would i sell my fx nikon and spend same money on this camera ? No freaking way.

FF is FF, and m4/3 is m4/3.. Oh wait, and APS-C is APS-C, isn't it?
Sony A7 is quite cheap. So with your logic, everyone should run and buy that. Or even Canon 5D, cos FF is FF right?
And again with that logic, Nikon D500 is also overly expensive, because D750 is "cheap".

If Sony adds phone and some Android capability to RX100 V, then it'll be interesting. Larger screen etc..

Excellent camera. Panasonic cameras are really excellent. I don't care about ISO25600, but ergonomics and menus and touch screen and AF and size/weight and etc.. are really very good.
