User9362470513: I recently went to a large department store in London with a large camera department. I am interested in the Olympus Pen F as a light walk around camera and asked for opinions of the staff. They all uniformly laughed and unabashedly mocked the Olympus and its 4/3 sensor. One salesman referred to it as a toy. Given the almost universal acclaim for the Pen F I was surprised. I wonder if they would say the same about this camera?

I am still interested in the Pen F - small, lightweight, small light primes and I liked to dedicated b/w jpeg option. I would be interested in this OMD camera were it not so expensive. I would be interested to hear thoughts on the M4/3 sensor and whether it is simply sensor snobbery (something a lot of DPR posters know about...).

PAntunes: I really disagree with you on this. I have a 120*40cm image hanging on my wall that I took with my Olympus E-M5. It looks excellent.

These false assumptions about m4/3 are being spread around by people who haven't tried to use a m4/3 camera. You speak about things you have zero experience with but take a wild guess based on your prejudice about sensor sizes and try to establish these assumptions as facts. Well, you're not doing anybody any favors.

@sonnycsc: Go ahead and buy the Pen F. It's an incredibly beautiful camera, and if it weren't for its lacking video capabilities it would be my next camera.

ekaton: No progress in IQ. Have MFT sensors plateaued or are they being held back by Sony?
Besides inferiority in iso and DR, mft sensors are no match for aps-c and certainly not for FF in tonal transitions, acuity, textural details. The overall gap from best in class one inchers to mft seems to have narrowed, whereas mft seems to fall behind compared to best in class aps-c. When throwing price into the equation, things look not too tempting for this new contender.

Please read this test by Steve Huff before you go on about how micro 4/3 can't compete with APS-C: http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/2015/02/23/mirrorless-battle-micro-43-vs-aps-c-vs-full-frame/

CheersUK: Without doubt, this camera sits at the top of the m43 pile as far as features. The tech geek in me wants this camera, but Im not sure I can justify the extra cost when comparing image IQ, to other m43 cameras. For sure, that 2 grand can buy some really decent glass.

I'm considering the camera primarily because of video capabilities with the in-camera audio options and 4K. I have a E-M5 right now, and it's really good image wise, but the video part isn't that good.

Sigma82: It's funny how the ff maniacs all come to comments every m43 camera news,. We got it, tiny sensor, overpriced, bad iq blah blah blah. We really got it. Now please go enjoy ur cameras and leave us m43 users with our pieces of crap. Thank you ;)

I would urge anybody who thinks that micro 4/3 sensors keep them from achieving the same image quality as APS-C to read this test by Steve Huff:

I love the look of the camera, but I hate that it has no external mic port. Olympus really should up its game when it comes to video.

Arhire Adrian: What the native ISO range? I may need another coffee, but i cannot find this info anywhere...

I'm guessing it has ISO 200 as base and expanded ISO 100 because both the E-M1, E-M5 and E-M5 II and the E-M10 has this for base.

sesopenko: Great job on such a tiny camera. Too bad it runs Symbian. And they're going to come out with a windows version? No wonder Nokia can't keep up with the likes of HTC, Samsung or Apple.

Actually Windows Phone 8 is looking very good. I think you may be confusing Windows Phone with the older Windows Mobile. These are two completely different systems.

Personally I'm looking forward to a Pureview running Windows Phone. It's gonna ROCK!
