pixelcollector: Besides Samsung’s NX30, which is a 4 year old dead end, this is the only ILC with:

APS-C sensor
Fully articulated touch screen
EVF
Small size low weight compared to dslr

In terms of IQ it looks like a substantial upgrade from m4/3, if you can live without IBIS and a huge lens selection.

I think I'm going to wait for the next enthusiast M model which hopefylly looks more like the m5.

Shasta290: I could care less about the M50. I am quite happy with my Canon 5D4, 7D2 and SL2. I am too heavily invested in Can0n glass to jump ship for Sony. I use the SL2 for hiking and backpacking when I don’t want to lug a brick with me. I will consider using a mirror less camera when Canon comes out with a FF that accepts EF lenses.

So you still care then.

Bobthearch: I'd be interested in something like that. The high-tech features (eye detection, video, etc.) don't interest me. But an APS-C sensor in a 35mm SLR-size body with interchangeable lenses, now that's appealing.
BUT... I want dual wheels, 800 shots per battery change, physical controls for LCD-free shooting, and a $500 no-frills price.
I expected Yongnuo to be making cameras by now...

Have you tried being realistic about what a camera with all those features might cost?

What are you switching from? I have an E-P5 which I love for many things except the high noise and low dr..

stevo23: This makes the news? I admit, it's kind of amusing, but seriously?

Kind of amusing? It's comedy gold. I find it disheartening that there's always someone to complain about an article that isn't up their standards of journalistic quality, only to see it get 'liked' by similar grumps. The 'seriously?' is the mandatory icing on the cake.

In reply to:

tko: An obvious scam. No one, not even the biggest idiot, would put something of that value in an unprotected case. To through a case, a camera bag, a filter, and through a lens like that would shatter the outside case to pieces. The first thing UPS asks is "show of the photo of the case."

I'm shocked DPR didn't research this.

did you mean 'throw' ?

pixelcollector: advantage over my 2 year old pen:
swivel LCD, weather sealing.
nearly all other features are identical. why is this camera so massive? bulkier camera = higher price tag?

Video improvements all you can come up with? Video features are a nice bonus on stills cameras, not core essentials.

laughable.

In reply to:

bernardf12: The only reason I don't like this camera is because it doesn't have a tilting screen. The flip out screens require too many actions to get to the tilting position. And you have to go through these actions repeatedly through your day shooting. Others may like this, but it's not for me because I use the tilted screen quite often.

do you use the tilt screen in portrait mode?

i didn't think so.

Thomas Kachadurian: A solid camera made better. Who can complain.

I'm happy you're all assuming that this is not a matter of simple cost-saving. I am not buying it. I think Oly are pulling an Apple and have a plan to introduce new tech as slowly as possible, much like iPhone development. Old tech, new design, market as revolutionary.

Happy with my e-p5 but not happy with >iso 1600.

pixelcollector: And again not a word on, not even an image of the fully articulated screen under 'body & design'. Is this such a minor detail to you? There was no mention of it in the preview either.

i've been waiting for one on an Oly body for years. Not going to sell my e-p5 for this, considering the sensor is the same. Let's hope this isn't a one time feature..

In reply to:

donCortizone: I liked the original E-M5, but didn't love it. I'd really like to give this version a shot since it looks like they've refined the controls quite a bit. The sensor, however, kills it for me. No way would I choose to go back to image quality of this kind at this price point.

back from what?

pixelcollector: Is the tripod socket made of plastic?

Bitchy? Serious question. It looks like plastic in the photo but before trashing the thing I'd like to be sure that it is.
