Dave, why are you complaining about a camera you will never ever buy? It's like I constantly would complain about Canon...
- he admits it's the first µ 4/3 he's shooting with
- he says right in the beginning it's a pre-production firmware
- no idea, what was going on in the rest of the video - I also will not buy into µ 4/3, so why wasting time to complain about obvious shortcomings of a small sensor and instead look at the other real interesting features ?
- I don't know if it was Jared or another reviewer who said since the camera has a rather good and snappy AF, he has more time to check for composition rather than for AF points.
- When did you shoot with any EVF?
I don't think Olympus tries to pull FF shooters on their side, most of their customers already abandoned the FF boat at times when DSLRs were modern. But I do think Olympus wants to offer their customers a high end camera. And by high-end I mean within the bounds of µ 4/3, not for other systems. It DOES have some very advanced tech in it and it also does have very solid sealing which I consider as "weatherproof" = more than just some rubber gaskets. It does have a fully articulated LCD - which other high-end camera offers that?
What I find interesting: most posters in this thread have no idea about µ 4/3, me included. And the only one - Klaus - qualifies the body as "mad form factor". If that's so, then what is a D4, D5? What's the mad part in a body made for European grown-up adult hands instead of the hands of kids or Japanese? A weight (and price and size) comparison can be made with other high-end pro bodies with integrated vertical grip and huge battery - everything else is just stupid.
A agree on the noisy pictures - but if one wants to travel with not much luggage and gear, the Olympus soon gets rather interesting if big prints are not in your commission list. I don't need plane, trains or motorcycle/-car AF recognition, but for those who do, it's the only camera offering it.
What I like of this approach is, Olympus dared to come with new ideas (and shitty LCD/EVF, alright), set some ridiculously high standards in electronic shutter and maxed fps. I think it's hard to navigate to all this features, I also think one needs to study the manual for extended time. I think, I'll get the same resolution quality with some Sigma lenses or the 50/1.8 S - but I also think, a tripod would be necessary to get close to it. The Olympus doesn't need tripods that much. Again something for travelling light. Imagine if you could take shots with ¼ second, handheld...
