Mike FL: Carey Rose;

I asked DPR multiple times with no response. Can you please ask Olympus if there is a plan to makes the HDR is not being fixed @ISO 200?

I have EM5.2, and the HDR is being fixed @ISO 200 just like this just released EM1.M2.

Well, if shutter speed is a problem, and of course it can be in certain situations, then it is back to the bracketing and using software - which tends to offer better results since more options to fine tune to your liking.

I do not have an Olympus but i may move over to them in early 2017 due to the many wonderful features they offer that Fuji does not. I am hoping that their new processor might offer a better quality in-camera HDR than currently exists. That would be wonderful.

But the higher the ISO the lower the DR. Is this request a bit self defeating?

maxnimo: I can't help wondering what cameras will be like 15 years from now.

15 years ago the film guys asked the same question.

With new tchnology comes confusion. I can take months to work out the menu on a new camera and master all the little things that prevent a sharp capture. Leica kept it simple.

In the future people that can afford two systems might go for m4/3 and MF as they compliment each other perfectly. Mirrorless MF reduces the bulk to make it more viable, but still a system for those with deep pockets .

photog4u: I must say the lack of follow up commentary, sample images and first impressions review is rather anticlimactic after the buildup of this cam. We've gotten spoiled ;)

I do not think the camera is a finished product yet. Same with GH5 so too early to ship out sample bodies to reviewers.

In reply to:

great Javier: Will this camera have the same quality in raw that the Yi M1?

Different. Sounds like the M1 is using the Sony 20mp sensor (Pen F and GX8) and this sensor is new (possibly Olympus designed but Sony built) low power sensor for improved IQ and super fast readouts. So M1 might be as good as GX8 or Pen F but this shoud be a better - time will tell 😉

Boissez: 6,5 stops of stabilization is just bonkers. In theory, that means that one can get away with shutter speeds that are 90x longer. That's beyond crazy!

Remember, stabilization only helps with photographer shake, not subject movement.

yslee1: Is there IBIS?

No. I suspect that IBIS plus long 4k shooting times equals too much heat. So one or the other.

Absolutic: Can someone tell me how to translate these focal lengths and apertures in full frame equivalents, it is just easier for my head to understand...... What number do I divide it by, 1.5?

I think sensor is 1.7x FF

Administration: the lens option on the specifications page is wrong. It should be 18-150, not 15-150 lens

Al Valentino: A 7.5mm f/2 is an ideal lens for astrophotography with m4/3, along with the PL 12mm f/1.4. Plus it is small, light and even accepts filters. Depending on price and IQ this could be a real winner!

Aperture has to do with exposure. F/2 on any format yields the same exposure. The same aperture om different formats offers differing DOf, but with Astrophotograhy, DOF is not a concern since the lens is focused at infinity for the stars.

Even if ths lens is a little soft in the corners wide open that might be acceptable since the FOV or 110 degrees is so wide that some edge cropping may not effect a good composition. The PL 12mm f/1.4 might have better edge shapness but a much narrower FOV. In any case,we will know for sure in early 2017 😉

Always great to see how people worked it out in the old days pioneering methods andthe techniques. Some will say that today you can do all this with an iPhone 7 while sitting in your car 🤔

Unlike the joy of taking, the joy of giving benefits all 😉

Mateus1: It looks X-A3 has't sensor from X-Pro2/X-T2, but from old Next-7 (or A6000) which was not that bad, but it does not share same X-Pro2 procesor... but got Adobe JPG space & Across film simulation, same Bayer CFA, which iare great... but unfortunatelly no PDAF.

But... if Fuji would brought at least external EVF, I would buy it as my Fuji landscape camera.

I think Fuji and Olympus have the best jpgs so either is are excellent choices to go jpg only (or mostly). I shoot more jpg with Fuji (almost four years) than I ever did with Nikon (eight years)
