I wish to own one of those models, that accommodates Zuiko optics. Yes, Olympus XZ-1 had a fantastic optics, that not just Olympus continued to use that 28-110mm F 1.8-2.5 optics in XZ-2 also Pentax had MX-1 and there was a Casio equivalent.

Later casio also used same optics on Stylus 1 F 2.8 10x zoom lens yet more pocketable than Stylus.

People, who appreciate photography moves to bigger sensor sizes. And phone cameras way easier to reach for beginners.

Why there is no M43 option... Well there is leica 42.5 F 1.2 for the ones who can, for the rest of us olympus 45mm F 1.8.

So whats the deal ?

Best comment is this one by far. American automotive industry cried and complaimt like a giant baby when car brand Fisker borned with its first model Karma from Finland. Now that market dominated by Tesla :)

But cellphones made by Chinese factories under any brand contains any operating system (android ios or windows)... so now China is not just a producer for other. Also a brand.

Thanks to American capitalism. China couldnt manage it iself, ever.

Since the cameras has built-in wifi, competiton between cameras and phones are over.
2008 8.0mpx p&s cameras has better zoom tele photos than 2018 phone cam. Or 2013 made Panasonic GM1 is a fantastic camera able to change lens and share photos yo your phone... Kicks any phone camera any day!

So as article say, don't dump your precious cash on a dumb oriented phones, so called smart one.

Finally, since E-pl2 an E-pl model with a built in flash. And yet... even leica used their acceaorry port in some of its models, this one has no such thing!

Not able to put your mic input or evf-4 here! Why ? Because its olympus and every model HAS TO HAVE a major issue.

Ben O Connor: Anamorphic lens for smartphone film makers.... Too many dumbness in a single sentences. :)

Can´t stop laughing.... :D in the middle of making the film your grandma likes your cat photos on your Facebook! OK you put the phone to flight mode, and your girlfriend couldn´t reach you for a brief minute. You dumped instantly :D

Dear ABW; If you seriously interested to do something contributing "Cinematic" by smartphone for the videography, find out a way to use smartphone as a atamos ninja kinda thing.

One of the most videographic capable camera is Panasonic GX80/85... SAME DUMBASS CAMERA HAS NO MIC INPUT, WHICH MY 200€ SAMSUNG PHONE HAS !!!!!

So figure a cable, which connect the phone to camera, and 3,5mm mic can already connect to phone. There you have it! 200€ Samsung j8 6 inch screen camera is become an atamos ninja replacament. Forget about toys like this. And most importantly, I hate that kickstarter. Want to buy something from there sometime but simply can´t ! And most of the stuff never be avaliable anywhere else... Be breave and manufacutre stuff, kick that starter thing away.

Ben O Connor: Dear Dumbass,

Please stop dumping 3 digits prices, which are more than 299€ to ANY so called smartphone, and buy a proper camera!

Any 3 digit priced (interchangable lens + primelens) camera has ability to improve your photography and can TEACH something even can provide you a job in the future! Don´t waste your pricious money, or even worse, you parents money!

Here is an all time favorite shot of mine by this combo (XZ-1, Filter thread, Half gray filter). The trees are slightly darker than they were, snow was gone on them. But I still could rise the exposure +0,3 while sky hasn´t blown on a tiny sensor, even in a terrible cloudy Finnish Winter sky.

Cellphones has their advantages, no doubt & no question. They comes everywhere, You can capture a moment and share instantly. But when its about such stuff... MEH!

Oh by the way, there are no software touching at that photo AT ALL. Just jpeg and throwned to the internet!

Here is a fine example of a capable camera. Well, unfortunately it hasn´t have WiFi so its sort of harder to add those files to phone etc.

But remember, it has larger sensor (1/1.7) than most smart phones. It has enable many photographic controls (F stop, shutter speed, solid tripod hole) And if you want its Interchangable version, don´t go further than GM1, GM5 etc. and a decent prime. But stop wasting time on smartphones. YES you can use those stuff, but...

Ben O Connor: I wish to own one of those Panasonic-Leica tele lenses for my gx80. However, I have hard time to get one. Price is a definately the main issue, since I have been married and can´t decide what to buy myself only :)

But in the other hand, their size is also not very small compared to APS-C glass of pentax for example. I rather want to compare Pentax glass, because they designed specially for that sensor size. Pentax 200mm F 2.8 attached on a K-30 is exactly same size combo compare to GX80+200mm F2.8 pana leica.
K-30 + Sigma 150-500 is significantly larger combo compare to GX80+100-400mm pana leica but it has longer range and smilar light sucking capabilities coupled with more affordable price.

I guess I will wait till Pana-leica 100-400mm get down to sub 1300€ range, But probbably only a second hand of that lens be that low on price.

Long story short; suck to be poor & married. Al Bundy. I feel you man :)

There is a camerasize comparission for those who wonder.
