No new lenses for APS-C, No Thanks, My Nex-6 and lenses have been setting in the closet since I got the LX-100 and FZ-1000 anyway. Was waiting to if Sony was still serious about their APS-C line now I know they are not.

ERyc: Some insane salesmen (there can't be technical reason) decided EU people are not allowed to use 30fps video :-( So maybe on next trip to US... I'd somehow understand that limitation on $200 camera but not on $800 (EUR 800 actually) one...

Yea, and because the EU decided to heavily tax what they consider a video camera's and manufactures are too lazy to create camera's for different markets we get stuck with 29:59 minute video limitation. So tit for tat.

surelythisnameisfree: This does seem a remarkable camera. The only problem I have is that I see the tearing/rainbows in the EVF to such an extent that I can't use it. It's hard to believe that an OLED VF would have added that much more to the production cost. Clearly the testers aren't members of the group that do see these rainbows as it doesn't seem to have impacted the score at all

The vast majority of people do not have the defect in their vision that cause them to see this phenomenon in the view finder. I am sure Panasonic knows this and that's why they stuck with this type of EVF. It also can fit into a smaller space than the current OLED technology. I have a friend that tells me when he looks into my Nex-6 which is OLED that it seems to pulsates at a very rapid pace and makes him feel nauseated. So it seems that the OLED EVF's have viewing problems for some people also.

Thanks, It is starting to look like my D700 upgrade has come. Not exactly what I wanted in way of build but close enough.

Robert Morris: Touch Screen = No.

Yea, that's why I posted that it does not have one, because DPR had stated it did in a couple of their article's. It now looks like they have corrected that error.

Robert Morris: Touch Screen = No.

I was correcting the error in DPR's statement saying that it has a touch screen. It does NOT have one. Also on their spec page that state no time lapse mode which it does have.

Touch screens are OK but I would rather have the dials and button for direct access like the LX100 has. PreOrder mine on the first day it was available.

Looks like they have corrected the error about the touch screen.

Good stuff. Now how about a few more in the other aspect ratio. Please!

PILUIS: ¿Es que no se ha probado el estabilizador en 4k?
Pues falla algunas veces y se muestra inestable tanto en estabilización vertical como horizontal. Luego después de un rato se queda normal y estabiliza bien.
Esto debe ser un problema de recorte del sensor. Y de interferencia de los ejes de estabilización.
Estamos esperando un nuevo FIRMWARE de Panasonic que corrija este pequeño defecto. Con lo bien que va la cámara..... y esto empaña a las tomas con zoom y con i-zoom tanto en tomas en HD como en 4K.
Es un defecto que no puede advertir Panasonic en el manual y así se lava
las manos de hacerle trabajar a los ingenieros que han diseñado el estabilizador.
Cuando queráis os pongo videos con este defecto que me ha costado cambiar ya 2 veces la cámara y nada sigue haciéndolo.
De todas maneras es mi cámara favorita y aconsejo a todos/as su compra.

Thanks, for this information. This is a problem I hope that Panasonic fixes soon.

Francesco De Lorenzo: Having to build a new system, would you buy the Fuji or Sony A7? They cost the same.

Fuji, I am jumping from Sony e-mount ASAP. Sony's E mount has been out longer and has very few quality fast lenses and I don't expect it to improve anytime soon. Look at the new FE mount 4 Lenses and 3 body's. Sony likes to sell bodies and gadgets and not camera systems. They are proving that they're an electronics company first not a camera company. Very sad as some of the cameras are great just noting to put in front of the senors.

abortabort: "New style Sony" surely means Multi Interface shoe yeah? If so should be a nice travel flash for the A7/R / a6000. Also interesting for the RX10 with leaf shutter and GX1/II.

Really doubt it will have the Multi-Interface shoe more likely just the standard ISO one. Which is new for Sony cameras.

In reply to:

VENTURE-STAR: This might be an okay camera for some users depending on price, but it's unlikely to make any inroads against existing 4/3 products. As somebody else said, it's made by an obscure company and trades on a hollow name.

In reality, Kodak missed the boat about 15 years ago and they couldn't see the writing on the wall. They are virtually a deceased company who now belong to photographic history.

Maybe, Maybe not. You could probability ask 10 people if they knew that Kodak was out of business and I am sure a majority of them wouldn't have a clue. So the name alone will bring in some customers. If there are any out there and if the camera gets any shelve space or some good Ad campaigns.

Peter Gregg: The processing on these shots is poor. I have a hard time believing these images are representative of what this lens can do. If they are, then it is disappointing. I shoot heavily with the 25mm 1.4 and the images are absolutely beautiful.

Don't forget lighting inside these venues can be pretty poor. I would like to see some shots from some people who can control the image process from beginning to the final image display some shots. The contrast is way too hot in some images and the clarity seems to have a a veil over it. I shoot EM-1 and GH3 and if I returned and displayed shots like these to my clients it would be pretty poor.

Those folks on a full frame campaign are just bloviating. The size of the sensor or the number of megapixels will have no effect on image quality for images displayed on the web like these. I shoot 800e in my bag too, and the client would have a hard time telling what came from what camera.

I was thinking the same thing, but was playing nice and not complaining, anyway see this.

Full test and some samples images here:

Also Cameralabs has some real nice samples photos up, Enjoy.

On article Olympus PEN E-P5 Review (500 comments in total)
In reply to:

SHood: "shutter shock" is a problem with all mirrorless cameras. Smaller body is part of the problem but also due to the shutter requiring a close/open to start the exposure and then another close/open to end it. This quick double shutter action is different than DSLRs which just need to open to start the exposure and then close to end it.

I have found with my GH3 that shooting at hi-speed continuous shooting does help as liveview is disabled so you don't have the double shutter action except to start the first image and end the last image in the sequence. The electronic shutter on Panasonic bodies also helps but is limited.

The new 1/8000s shutter speed on the E-P5 and E-M1 has probably made it even worse as the shutter is now designed to move even faster. Only the global shutter will totally eradicate this.

So you are saying that this also happens with Sony, Fujifilm, Samsung, Pentax, Canon, Ricoh, and Nikon mirror-less cameras also? I have not read anything in any of the reviews for those cameras about this major problem.

In reply to:

rxbot: Pocket lint has a review with raw and jpeg samples. Their conclusion is E-P-5 wins on IQ but G7 wins on package because the Pen5 does not have the built in EVF so adding a finder adds a lot to the package cost.Auto focus speed both cameras are blazing fast. Personally I will wait till the next versions of XE-1 and Nex6 come out as I like 16MP APS-C sensors.

Yes, I think their reviews are worth about what the name suggest "Pocket Lint" and not one furball more.

The screens are here, the recording media is here, the cameras are here. So we are ready for 4K. Now we only need the content to watch. Who still has Cable TV anyway and who watches movies on cable if that do. I don't own a 70" screen to watch cable TV.
