pahnson: "Lens lineup could be limiting"
Hm, isn't there a great working and somehow "native" adapter that allows us to use all Canon EF Lenses? Which is the greatest lense-selection today?

No Microphone input is a REAL problem for anyone who would use it for video. Its a missed chance in my opinion. I think its MUCH worse that there is so Microphone input than the missing 4k (which isnt realy important in that market/target audience). Basicaly this makes the camera unusable for any video work (if you don't want to hassle with a external recorder or rely on ugly built-in audio).

"The M100 won't set the world on fire with its spec sheet, but that's less important at this budget end of the market." I would say thats not only in this market less important. It realy doesnt matter at all in any market. The reason people stick to Canon is, that its reliable, easy to use and works great in any situation. Canon is FAR from being the best on paper - but in real live this doesnt matter that much.

Canon is like Toyota, don't get people excited
if u already have 1 toyota would one buy another Toyota

Problem is many have already got camra (I have many)
no excitement , no sale

Last camera I buy is Sony A6500 and TG-5
both bring something new to the table

the worst offender is Olympus/Panasonic, 5 years old boring 16MP sensor

why would anyone buy in EF-M system?

1 no 4k
2 bad sensor IQ in noise and dynamic range
3 bad lens system, no 3rd party Sigma support like Sony
4 no in body IS like Olympus/Panasonic

A5100 better buy than this, look at the recent Samyang 16mm F1.4
where is such a lens for EF-M?

PedroMZ: Frankly Olympus are pricing themselves out of the market,they are charging 20% more than other camera bodies with larger more populated sensors and similar functionality. The problem with switching is of course not the price of camera bodies but replacing all the then incompatible lenses . Fuji XT-2 body £1500 OM-1 mk II £1850. Panasonic however have more realistic pricing GX8 is a great camera
and is significantly less than £800 ,is WR and has excellent IBIS.

If you are buying a new camera, u pick the best value for your money

doesn't matter if the camera is release 3 years ago or 3 days ago

The fact that Sony is still producing and selling A5100/A6000 mean it is a current camera

if it is out of production than it is another story (the original A7 is out of production and is now selling only remaining stock)

I see so many complain of bad AF
but no one answer me why they can't use a MF lens on this camera
There is excellent MF lens for MFT including

Laowa 7.5mm f2
Samyang 12mm F2

danieladougan: Who really NEEDS to shoot 4K video? And, if you are among the select few who do need it, wouldn't it stand to reason that you would also need a microphone jack? Even though headphone jacks are cheap, I understand why that might be reserved for more expensive models. I own the proprietary SEMA-1 microphone kit, but it can't hold a candle to something like a RODE external mic.

Give me 1080p video with a mic and headphone jack over 4K video without them!

Also, the lack of ANY phase detect AF points is really disappointing because that would actually be extremely useful for people who might want to take photos of their fast-moving kids and pets.

With this camera, Olympus let their marketing people set the priorities instead of their photography and engineering people. Too bad.

How do u play 4k video on 4k TV?

Link | Posted on Nov 3, 2017 at 10:23 UTC

People really should buy it if just to show support for a cheap 20MP MFT camera

don't need to paid a fortune to have 20MP in MFT

give the thumb to both Panasonic/Olympus

Jefftan: I have 16MP GM1 and I have 24MP A6500
I am not blind and can see the difference even on 1080p TV

Those saying 16MP is "enough" is like saying
minimum wage is enough for living
so anyone want to earn "enough" minimum wage

I bet many 5 years old 16MP MFT still working perfectly
just use them and forget about wasting your money and buy a "new" "enough" 16MP MFT camera

if u are into video and care about 4k than it may be worth it
16MP has no place in 2017 as a "new" camera for still picture taking

I am sorry I don't really understand why "three sensor make a pixel, 4k equal 48MP"
Can u please explain?

their choice to go the route of expensive niche brand
their choice to drop out of mainstream

that is ok, just not for me

even their "cheap" camera E-M10 III which except the advantage of 4k and in body Is
is price higher than 24MP A6000 and M100

ogl: Is there any RAW converter to work with this camera? Or it shoots in DNG?

I have heard Capture One don't work well with DNG
don't know if true

Jefftan: if use with MF lens like Laowa 7.5mm F2
better than all 16MP Olympus/Panasonic camera

16MP should not exist in 2017
ridiculous

I do ultra wide angle landscape picture

in a 15mm equivalent picture, there is so many things and detail in the picture
that even my 24MP can't full resolve to my satisfaction
and than people told me 16MP is enough

I would prefer APS-C to move to 36MP (and it would eventually)
Maybe it depend on what kind of picture one is taking
for example taking the picture of a person face than maybe 16MP is enough

"Silly me with my 12mp A7s"

This is meaningless comparison. Most got A7S for video or extreme high ISO
as a general camera there is no place for 12 or 16MP is 2017

because cheap entry level APS-C has 24MP

Link | Posted on Nov 3, 2017 at 06:18 UTC

Think why Canon/Nikon keep selling $500 entry level DSLR
and Sony keep selling A5100/A6000 when they clearly indicate they want to go high end
They probably don't make much money from it

Because they know a system without entry level buyer is a dead end system
eventually the system user pool will dry up and become a niche

Olympus/Panasonic is killing their entry level with outdated 5 years old 16MP sensor
This is a short sighted move to increase short term profit

those that don't like to buy a "new" camera with 5 years old 16MP sensor are not a troll

no reasonable person would prefer to have a "new" camera with 16MP
and not better and cheaper APS-C like A6000/M100 with 24MP

I am the original poster and I stand by what I said
there is nothing wrong with 16MP and maybe "enough"

problem is now is 2017 and technoloy is suppose to be moving forward
there is no place for a 2017 camera to be 16 MP

My 2013 GM1 is still working well so I don't need to buy a new camera in 2017 with the same 16MP
It has enough MP (really? I much prefer my 24MP A6500)

Minimum wage is enough money to live
so one want to earn minimum wage?

ovlov: I made the mistake of buying one of these. It's not worth $300. The kit lens is actually decent but the camera is garbage. You're honestly better off buying a used or NOS m4/3 camera.

why don't u use with MF lens"

Samyang 12mm F2
Laowa 7.5mm F2

anyone can make their choice
but why use an inferior sensor with less lens choice than Sony APS-C is beyond me

Fe is not a lie, for example that budget 85mm F1.8 is very good on APS-C
Sigma not a lie, where is that 16mm F1.4 for EF-M
Even Sony E not a lie, where is that 10mm for EF-M?

If I buy such an entry level camera no way I would not choose A5100

Jefftan: Look at the EF-M lens lineup
Canon don't care about it and no Sigma support

Even the ultrawide (big reason for going mirrorless) start at 11mm not 10mm

just for the lens lineup would choose A5100
APS-C E-mount, FE mount, Sigma
there is a lot of lens choice

I must add one need adapter to use EF/EF-S lens on M100
no adapter need on FE lens on A5100
