Jefftan: I wonder how many sales Fuji lost because of

X-trans sensor and ISO start at 200

don't want to argue right or wrong, Many don't like X-trans sensor and of course no one like ISO starts 200 (don't even know why Fuji make it so)

If Fuji 24MP sensor is similar to A6300/A6500, according to DXO

at ISO 200 almost 1 stop of dynamic range is lost compare to ISO 100
color depth also lower at ISO 200

Start at ISO 200 is definitely not a good thing

quietrich: Cons: "•16MP starting to look a little dated"

Because we are all buying into the marketing bs? Nope, having exhibited 36 x 24 inch prints in a London exhibition, produced from a 16mp sensor, I can honestly say that 16mp is a perfectly usable res. Don't buy into the marketing BS guys - 16 is plenty!

"When pictures are scaled to the same size, noise level will be very much the same, no sensor Mp"

not true. Scale to same size more MP will show less noise.

daqk: Thank you DPreview, looked through sample pictures then immediately bought a Panasonic GX85 before I could finish reading your E-M10III review.

I would get A6000 or M100
at least I got a larger sensor and 24MP

retr01976: I absolutely loved my EM10 back in the day: Fast focus, responsive touch screen, nice sharp compact Olympus lenses. I just wish Olympus adopted a bigger sensor, I never fell in love with m43rds image quality which always had a very flat less life like look to it.

"not sure why"

if one has a sensitive eye and take nature/landscape pics like me
APS-C A6500 or even old NEX-5N just capture more color tone (like more different shade of green)
a full frame sensor in A7R II would capture even more color tone

hard to believe those that always claim MFT equal full frame
simply not true. not even equal APS-C
one can like MFT for 5 axis IS, lens selection or whatever. but saying IQ equal to large format sensor at same ISO is just wrong

Jefftan: wonder why smartphone is taking over camera?
Look at this, at least smartphone is making IQ progress every year

Company think customers are idiot and will buy the same camera (sensor 5 years old) over and over again
in the end they will find out who is the idiot

No one care about camera should attack Sony
At least it is the camera company most keen on innovate, without it camera is doom and smarphone will take over

The current state of MFT seem to be only for those already trapped by owning expensive lens
hard to imagine anyone with no MFT lens would not choose 24MP APS-C and get 5 years old 16MP MFT camera

"but he doesn't find the E5 IQ to be appreciably better for him at least"

not in low light, in base ISO maybe

XF 8-16 F2.8 must be heavy
i would be more interested if it is F4

But 12mm equivalent ultra wide is very special
most only go 15mm

What is the difference between this X-E3 and XT-20 ?
I suppose it is not weather seal

also the above specification has no weight info
ridiculous

Marty4650: This camera isn't designed to be an upgrade from the EM10 II.

This is just a tweaked, refreshed and improved version of the EM10 II. No one in his right mind would upgrade from the Mk II to the Mk III. However, it now becomes more attractive to first time M4/3 buyers moving up from smartphones, or sideways from other camera brands.

" If just one percent of those smartphone users wanted a real camera, that would add 15,000,000 more cameras sold."

Bet those buying won't get MFT, either 1 inch or APS-C
1 inch for weight
APS-C for IQ

Sucama: waiting micro 4/3 20mp sensor at low price...maybe next year...

Yi M1 use with manual focus lens like Laowa 7.5mm F2 is the best bet for MFT

Jefftan: Review don't test the most important 5 axis IS for still and test if that has been improved

If not for this, no reason to use a small sensor , just buy 24 MP A6000/Canon M100 (remember both have better AF, much bigger sensor and more megapixel)

If 5 axis IS is really good, like can handheld wide angle at 1 second as some claim on E-M1 II, it MAY worth it (just may)

If not for the IS, this camera is simply worthless compare to A6000/M100 (Oh yes, it has 4k, big deal)

"The M100 was just a dumb camera decision, no control dials, menu dive for just about everything you want to do"

not dumb at all assume AF/metering all work as expected
I usually only change aperture and focus all attention on composition

if exposure is not way off, can adjusted with RAW
no need for many knobs and dials

"Yeah, glass available"

Talking about lens, with adapter all EF/EF-S/EF-M lens useable on M100
no better lens collection than Canon

Even without adapter, in MFT where is a good IQ. affordable ultra wide zoom lens?
I am talking about EF-M 11-22mm (Olympus 9-18mm not very sharp from what I read)

"the af of canon mirrorless is less evolved and demonstrably worse that m43 as done by both panny and olympus"

Really? with Canon dual pixel in entry level M100
better than CDAF only E-M10 III
I won't believe

How expensive that 20MP sensor can be if cheap Yi M1 can use it

By protecting the $2000 E-M1 II , Olympus deliberately downgrade E-M10 III

Olympus is not Canon (which has been doing this for years)
in a very touch market when all entry level APS-C include the 3 years old A6000 has 24MP
This is a very dangerous move. Let's see what happen

although margin may be low but volume make up for it
entry level is arguably more important to a company than high end

In reply to:

Hellraiser: These m43 camera makers should really make their sensors go below ISO200, compared to modern APS-C these images (especially landscape) seem really really bad :S

I never understand why including Fujifilm base ISO is 200
Lose at least 1 stop in dyanamic range

and MFT old 16MP sensor dynamic range is not good to begin with
