1Dx4me: this is a nice camera but i am not sure if it make sense to get into this camera and high price lenses even if it was financially viable, in other words, return on benefit is not great if one is already heavily invested in canon or nikon FF cameras and lenses! for those that just getting started into serious photography, this camera and lenses might be a serious option but i'd still look into canon/nikon offering, first. sample photos sure look great, though!!!!

@1Dx4me

It's "return on investment" not "return on benefit".

tedolf: These things are still way too expensive and nobody needs a 360mm equivalent zoom.

They should focus on a more reasonable focal range (28mm-135mm) and faster F stops at a sub $500.00 price.

TEdolph

No, not much.

You're right, it ain't art and I sure wouldn't want to print it.

Maybe it is the compression artifacts.

@steve, @deep7

What are you taking photo's of that you need a 360mm + equivalent telephoto?

As for me?

I am smoking the good stuff!

milkod2001: Throw FF 30-36MP sensor onto it then we can talk Fuji. With size of the camera that should not be a problem.

@milkod

Fuji does not make a camera with a 4/3 sensor.

Yes, for hiking a long lens makes sense. That was not the context I was thinking of for "travel".

More like Mexico city, Rome, etc.

What are you shooting at 280mm?

Also, once you get over $500.00 interchangeable lens cameras start to look attractive.

I can respect that!

B-rad: I'm in Canada and the price of the EM1mk2 is 2,500. Its the only Oly camera with phase detect, why do we have to pay that amount for this feature when Canon Nikon have it on cameras for well under 1,000? I have 2 M10mk2s and they could use it as well.

NEX 5R had no lenses.

Go back and look at the lens catalog from that era.

No wonder that they had to give the series a new name.

Is the rangefinder on an M camera accurate enough to focus this lens?

I know that 90mm f/2.8 was right on the edge for focusing accuracy.

I beg to differ.

I have a sequence of a slow approaching cyclist taken with an Olympus E-PL1 that the tracking AF was able to keep up with.

I can't post them here but they are in my Gallery.

It will certainly work for people who are walking.

For the types of people that are buying entry level cameras, that is enough.

Peiasdf: OMG, 8 years after my crappy E-PL2 Olympus come back to the same design and mostly the same feature set. Oh, and a 4mp pump on resolution.

Except the E-pl2 had better colors and an EVF port.

Nobody buys Fuji for tracking AF. They buy Fuji for the lenses.

What I am saying is that unless you are doing BIF or something like that CDAF works fine.

Now, if you are doing video, Canon's Dual Pixel AF is very interesting.

Most people who are buying entry level Sony, Panasonic, Olympus, etc. really don't need hybrid CDAF/ PDAF. They would never notice the difference.

Didn't save it either.

And PDAF really isn't making much difference for Sony E mount, or Fuji.

In reply to:

justmeMN: I wonder how many minutes of 4K this camera can record. Some cameras have short 4K time limits, due to overheating issues.

If a person cares enough about video to want to use 4K, I suspect that they would also want the ability to use an external microphone.

Well, if it had an accessory port you could attach an external microphone, a continuous macro light, an EVF, a NFC module, a flash, etc.

That's why its deletion is inexcusable.

You might want to look at an EM-1 Mark 1. It has a better sensor, will focus your lenses better than the E-620 and has a whole lot of new features.

Karroly: Unlike other commenters, I do not mind this camera does not feature a built-in EVF. Olympus has a wide enough offering of bodies with built-in EVF.
But it is however a shame this camera no longer features the accessory port to connect an external EVF...

But, they should have included the accessory port so you could add one if you want to.

Why?

What are you going to do with 24mp?
