neatpicture: finally, pop up flash is gone like most serious cameras. About time. Seriously, if you are down to your pop up, might as well get the shot with your phone and leave the camera in the bag.

I presume the inbuilt flash in Nikon camera body's can be used as a master flash. So why not put it in there if there is room? I really can't see any reason not to want that.

Aroart: Sorry but my Fuji 35 f2 will eat you for breakfast lunch and dinner with better build and less expensive .. Don't understand why M4/3 lenses are so over priced compared to Fuji...

Why should MFT users care for Fuji lenses? Can I put them on my MFT body? No.

Thorgrem: I like the camera. It's a shame Leica didn't go the MFT route. Than it would be a serious option for me, and a lot of other people.

Remember Leica made an 4/3 dslr camera?

straylightrun: F/4-6.3 zoom lens? Crazy. Why are there still no f/2.8 (35mm equiv) lenses for m43 yet?

That's a 24-200 f8 and also a great lens for a great system. I mostly use a 24-80 f5.6 (M.Zuiko 12-40 f2.8) and love it. I know what MFT lenses can do on my MFT camera and never used 35mm film so I don't have any use of FF comparison.

You are free to go and use any other system out there. Good luck and have fun. For my as a happy MFT user this lens is great.

Weight and size. That's why I prefer MFT very much over Fuji and Sony offerings.

Richard Murdey: I see the viewfinder coverage as been increased from 97% to 98%.

Would it have killed them to bump it up the extra 2% to 100%? Is it a contractual obligation that a 100% finder is reserved for the 5D series?

Gering to 100% is not expencive, Pentax proves it as a small company. Canon just put it below 100% to protect the more expensive camera line. It's 2017, there is no good reason to not make a viewfinder 100%.

The difference between 100% and 98% is knowing what is in the frame and guessing what is in the frame.

Even the cheapest Pentax dSLR has a 100% coverage. Canon is losing it's mojo this way.

I know it's not the best (not even in production anymore) but after working with the dot sight in the Olympus SP-100EE I think it's a shame the others in this comparison don't have that feature. It's awesome handy.

bossanesta: Just let it die peacefully, so we can all forget Nikon had a garbage system.

No, they should revive the Nikon 1 system and bring new body's and lenses. It's the only real alternative to the highly popular MFT.

Magnar W: What Sony says about sealing: "A9 body is well sealed – especially around most buttons and dials – against dust and moisture entry in rough shooting conditions."

What Sony says about durability: "Lightweight, highly rigid magnesium alloy for top cover, front cover, internal frame, and rear cover ensures though body durability."

From the official Sony.com web site.

Most? So not around all buttons and dials...

In reply to:

Peiasdf: E-M1 II is the most overpriced flagship camera of this generation. GH5 gives far superior video for the same price. Both also lost to A6500 in low light and AF which just shows how amazing SONY's AF is

It sells pretty well. So apparently enough people think it's worth the price tag.

nerd2: Boldly charging $1999 for m43 body? Keep trying.

Also (for me) the only advantage of m43 system is their best-in-class IBIS system.... which is great for VIDEO shooting as it's better than external gimbals. How ironic.

If you think only the IBIS is the advantage, than you really don't get it. That's a shame but not the problem of Olympus. Already many other users see the benefits and potential of m4/3.

So can we expect new Nikon 1 products any time soon?

Ben O Connor: When micro four thirds came to market at first, it was simply beautiful. Not just easy but also was joy to carry.

Probably it is me, who loves rangefinders more than those wanna be dslr's (Lumix G, GH & Olympus OMDmodels).

Olympus and Panasonic still make great rangefinder models with m4/3 mount. So nothing has changed on that perspective. The system only gets better and better.

In reply to:

MrALLCAPS: Honestly, what's the reason for getting a E-M1 MkII for over this camera, aside from just being an Olympus?
Panasonic has trumped Olympus as the real leader of Micro Four Thirds. It has the same image quality, which isn't saying much really for the FT sensor, it's ibis is on part with Olympus, even better in longer focal lengths with the dual I.S., and Panasonic video is leaps and bounds better than Olympus.

If anyone truly wants to shoot sports, they're going to use a D500 or a 7D MkII. I don't see a pro using M43 for sports or wildlife over those 2 cameras. Yet, pros are using the GH series for video.

Now all Panasonic need's to do is return the GX series back to a primary stills user. One without a flippy screen, thank you. The one on the GX85 will be quite fine.

Panasonic had a long history of making technology better camera's than Olympus. They had the price wise nice G line for a long time and Olympus hadn't an answer for that a long time (till the E-M5 came). But always Olympus is selling more than Panasonic. It's a matter of looks and feel and history I think.

On article Throwback Thursday: the dual-lens Kodak EasyShare V570 (21 comments in total)

I wanted to buy this camera but it was to expensive. So I bought a V803. Overall a nice little camera but with a annoying shutter-delay. To bad Kodak went out of business.

Overheating is the key feature of this Sony line since the NEX-5. Can someone tell me if the this one also has this unique Sony feature, it wouldn't be a real successor if it doesn't overheat.
