DME: If Nikon doesn't move in this direction, 4/3 sensors, getting better with every new sensor update and an excellent selection of lenses and great af, I believe they'll end up losers in the long run. I'm not even talking about Canon, they are totally out of the loop with their overpriced latecomers. And Sony better step up to the plate with touchscreen and a better selection of lenses for their APSC mirrorless cameras, especially a standard 2.8 zoom lens that is way overdue.

If dxomark show the sensors of Panasonic and Olympus's new offerings increased in DR and better high I SO than the previous models, I most certainly will buy an into the system.

It would be great if Nikon joins m4/3. All 3 will benefit from the cooperation.

NeilJones: I always laugh when they say it's also geared towards a working pro sports shooter. Yeah a pro sports shooter would use 4/3 when so many great full frame sports camera's!

Lol, ignorance is bliss? What about the Canon 7D Mark II and the Nikon D500? Both great and popular sports cameras. Count the Olympus E-M1 Mark II in that list.

Tiefenunschärfe: I like the features of this camera very much, but I dislike this tiny sensor.

Why should I? I've got nothing to do with Nikon 1. Nice system by the way, Nikon should put some more effort into it.

Only in your world. There is no paradox, every system and every sensor size is a combination of concessions.

It's the 4/3 sensor size that make all these fantastic features possible. It's the sensor size together with the oversized mount that makes these fantastic optics in a small package reality. If you dislike the sensor size you dislike the system and if you dislike the system than you also dislike this camera for what it is. Part of a great system that's different from what other brands bring.

Old Ed: The hardware in this looks very nice, even though it seems to be drifting towards big-camera territory. I'll look forward to seeing if there are significant UI/menu improvements. DPR has described Olympus' menus as somewhere between train-wreck and nightmare (not exactly their words) for a long time now.

If you spend some time with it and set your camera good than it's just fine and you have really a lot of options also on the cheapest models.

vin 13: Just saw the size comparison posted here. It's bigger as my old Canon 350D! However if it's as good as Olympus are boosting and is priced sensibly I'll still be very interested.

If your old 350D is as big as an 750D (same class) than this E-M1 II will be about the same size. But the E-M1 II us a few classes above.

Why are there no new Nikon 1 announcements?
It could be a great portable and blazing fast system if Nikon put some more effort in it.
They already invested a lot into the developing, so keep going and make it profitable.

danieljcox: This camera could do to Canon and Nikon what Canon did to Nikon in the early 90's. Canon's AF technology crushed Nikon throughout the 90's. It was technology that took Nikon by surprise and they never recovered from Canon blind siding them. If the specs of this camera hold true and it indeed can shoot 18FPS in AF-C, this camera may well do to both Nikon and Canon what Canon did to Nikon way back when. This may finally be the camera that proves mirrorless is the future due to less moving parts and the ability to surpass the flapping mirrors of the traditional dinosaur DSLRs.

Indeed, as an happy Olympus user I don't think Olympus will take much market share from the big 2. And that's okay, I like Olympus as a small and different brand.

Tommi K1: No integrated GPS = Bad for mobility shooters (power consumption only 15mA in active use)

No new EVF size, 0.74x (1.48x) is already "small" compared to X-T2 or so. But if higher resolution is there... OK then.

120 fps with 6ms is pretty impressive.

Caerolle: Wow, more vaporware! Panasonic and Olympus are fragmenting the format in generally, but in sync today!

Is this the best troll attempt in this topic today? You can do much better, put some more effort into it.

photofan1986: Am I the only one to notice the 12-60 2.8-4.0 lens !?

The 3 zooms are a great addition to the m4/3 lens lineup. No doubt DPR will make an article for them. But it's a busy day at the DPR office I think.

ArnoBrinkman: I really like it, get rid of those big Full frame heavy sh*t

You can always buy the very small and also new E-PL8. (or the E-M10 Mark II if you prefer a EVF. Choices for everyone at Olympus and Panasonic.

A great addition to the OM-D lineup and a worthy flagship. Also the new lenses are a great addition. Compliments go to both Panasonic and Olympus for making together a great system. Happy times for m4/3 users.

Daft Punk: I don't understand why people think this is expensive..

APSC mirrorless with great IQ and a vast range of lenses available via adaptors that apparently work seamlessly.

With an OK kit lens it is a lot cheaper than an XT2 with similar spec ( Fuji with 4K admittedly ) ..

Anyway, at this price ,what is not to like?

Expecting this to cost $6-800 or so is simply dumb. That would make no sense at all.

I am usually very negative of Canon. Not really a fan at all. But this seems a decent effort and something I would think seriously about owning.

Numerous... With the new announced lens the total is 7.... That is less than 2 lenses a year. With this speed it will take almost a decade to have the same amount of lenses as others have now at this moment. And yes, you can use an adaptor, so can the other brands and they can also mount Canon dSLR lenses. So nothing new to see here.

- With a mirrorless most people want native lenses. Canon does not offer many. The competition has a much, much wider range of lenses.
- It's not a competitor of the X-T2, more of the X-T10 which is much cheaper.
- It's way to expensive for a camera that competes with the ones like X-T2, E-M10II, GX80.
- It would make perfect sense when you look at the competition.
- It would be a decent effort in 2012/2013. It's 2016 now.

Mariano Pacifico: The design is re-incarnation of lamentable G5X but bigger and goofier.

Reminds me of the Canon EOS 300, a cheap plastic fantastic film slr from the 90's. Not the retro people want to see today.

russbarnes: There's your 5DMKIV video camera. $35k. I'm guessing this one doesn't have a 1.7x crop factor lol. When will people realise that quality video doesn't belong in stills cameras?

When Panasonic stops producing and developing there fine line of GH cameras.
