rialcnis: My only problem is which new Pro lens to buy with it? Love to see more of the pro lens reviews.

@Carey Rose Thanks, the 25mm would be the most practical to begin with. I also want the older 300mm Pro, so you validated what I was thinking.

Franks38: Good sample pictures at Ming Thein: https://blog.mingthein.com/2016/11/02/review-olympus-e-m1-mark-ii/#more-13795

Various commenters below found the sample photos in the DPR story to be lacking. For a set of very good sample photos check out Ming's review. Overall he was positive about his experience with the Olympus E1-MarkII. But as others have noted he finds the E1.2 (his nomenclature) as large as the Nikon D750 with a 24-100 lens.

If you haven't seen the Robin Wong photos do so. Link on other thread below. Some incredible 5 sec hand held shots.

captura: $2000 for E-M1 mkII vs $1400 for A6500. No contest!

These other cameras mentioned are not in the same class. Of course they are all good, but this one does some magical things. Olympus is fanatical.

rialcnis: Freaking out about the price? It's a revolutionary camera and system. Maybe the critics have emotional investments in their chosen brand.

Videography rules photography now. Thats just reality.

I might have squeaked if they were going to ask 2699.00. But I am into Olympus AND mostly into video, so this new one is just what I wanted, to avoid having to switch to Sony for the long term. With the new Pro lenses it will be a dream come true for video. 247 mbps... And complaining about the price?? Now I can sell my GH4.

I can keep adding Zuiko lenses without worry.

MrTaikitso: Sorry to be negative, but that was badly directed/shot, boring and the music totally inappropriate for the subject. It started badly with the unimaginative shots of the copular, the camera wobbled around, didn't move towards a window for a closeup peak outside or anything, etc. And inside the passageways, the camera could have peaked left and right. This will be way way better if done in immersive VR or in photorealistic interactive 3D CGI. Love NASA, not this. Sorry!

Duh doi!

Maybe they should have held a wedding and request you.

disasterpiece: Save for the display, this looks similar to an iMac - overpriced, compromised hardware.

Gads, so much misinformation in comments.

Face it, face mask is out. Real World full-immersion, hololens is in.

The biggest problem is making bloaty Advertising, based driver updates hidden and updates in general, hidden. This is your virtual life, brought to you by the XYZ CORPORATION.

JJ Rodin: How in the world is this thing cooled !!!!? I assume piping and the case itself is the heat sink, but will it be used to keep coffee warm too ? ;)

Lots of $$, would buy one fabulous desktop that would beat this if the correct GPU chosen & lovely large display.

But impressive nonetheless !!!

I hope they are using the best quality batteries. Samsung and Apple are going to hang themselves with exploding phones.

mezastel: Why does everyone try to make non-standard-conforming screen resolutions? Apple has 5K, this is 4.5K, seriously, can't we just agree on UHD as the standard for the time being, and revisit it a while later when everyone wants a 28" with 8K or whatnot?

To be honest, reason I'm complaining is that I like recording the screen sometimes, and having all these incompatible resolutions ruins the fun for both content creators (who are limited in choice of hardware) and content consumers (who end up getting a scaled image).

This system is just the tip of the iceberg for what Microsoft is going to produce. This is a small unit that is a fast enough product to do most everything needed for most artists. Wait till they start releasing personal rendering farms for home and small office for 3D and VR production to spead things up, with integrated Adobe, Sony, Maya, MS Holography etc.

rialcnis: The price is actually pretty good. Any high end computer is going to be more than 4 grand.

I know alot of anti-Microsoft younger people who grew up using their moms $999 Celeron, so to be different and superior they bought into the Apple myth and felt better about themselves. Even when Mac went PC hardware they didn't notice that their components were always older then PC hardware. Macs were overpriced.
They would hate "Windows" thinking they were UNIX based, ha ha. They would end up having to run slow simulators to run windows or real UNIX/ Linux. They aren't even aware Windows now can run LINUX inside windows without a simulator and not even dual boot. Most Windows haters are phone people or the computer illiterate "artists." Were they to get into CGI occupations of course they have to go back to real PCs.

@dark goob developing servor apps in Unix would still be better on real PCs. That has nothing to do with the needs of power users.

I know Apple's real history since they robbed Xerox while Atari and Gates paid for licenses. Apple had to pay Atari. Apple was always on the crooked side with great PR that appealed to gen x'ers.

I also know what real power users need.

Microsoft makes plently of mistakes, but the OS is dominant with real power users.

Regarding the monitors, there is little comparison.

Face it, if you are not a real power user you can stick with the Mac toy computers and phones.

Apple has been a fake marketing scheme since day one.

Link | Posted on Oct 27, 2016 at 16:48 UTC as 49th comment

Power users, animators, gamers or VR need powerful PCs. Apples are toyss by comparison.

This is way the world looks from inside the eyeball. The drive for VR is probably remnents from Insectoid behavior. What do people aspire to?

Clint Dunn: What a great camera with such a small sensor. Unfortunately Olympus will never be more then a niche market. Imagine the volume they would sell if this camera had all the same features and a FF sensor?!

@dharmagreg when the new Oly becomes available there will be many more never ending threads.
