    Re: Questions for Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds camera industry

    I don't take a lot of notice of DXOmark, they are just lab tests, its the real world pictures that are important to me.
    I have many friends in my club with Canons and Nikons who are perfectly happy with their kit lenses and many have won club comps and had pictures published from these kit lenses, Some of their work has been outstanding, again real world.

    This thread is running off topic.

    Re: Questions for Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds camera industry

    I too would like answers re 4/3 I have stuck with it and added quality lenses to my bag, I particularly love getting BIF shots, which I am getting with my current gear but see canikon users doing it far easier with their tracking systems. So do I switch now which I would prefer not to do, or hold on and risk my quality lenses being almost worthless if Olympus ditch anything for us 4/3 users. So far I find the feel of the m4/3 body too small for me, yet the Panasonic G bodies sit quite nice in the hand.

    I might be tempted to buy the next E 5+ if there was an interface to add on a GPS locator (perhaps into the hot shoe) that would enable latitude and longitude coordinates to be stored in the images EXIF information

    The E-P5 has wifi and the Olympus app that works with this (iOS and Android smartphones and tablets) will use your device's GPS to geotag images. It would be surprising to me if this feature was omitted from future models.

    Re: Questions for Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds camera industry

    I remember seeing somewhere a little GPS accessory that records where you've been and when, then together with some software that looks at the date and time your photos were taken, works out the location of each shot, and adds it to the EXIF data. Having it built into the camera would be nicer though.

    Well now that panasonic have (it looks like it), moved to in-body stabilization in the new GX7, then Olympus will have lost that big advantage!

    Re: Questions for Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds camera industry

    When you talk of lenses, Olympus is really a force to reckon with. Maybe they should look at this strength and see how they can capitalize on it to come up with salable DSLR bodies that can maximize the potential of the Zuiko glass.

    I will believe that 4/3 is alive if I see another DSLR model besides the upgrade of the E-5 along with new 4/3 lens models in the product line. As of now, there are only a few lens choices from the present product line that are available in my part of the woods.

    If what I have stated will materialize, new DSLR bodies and lenses, then I will be expanding my gears in the future.

    Re: Questions for Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds camera industry

    jp, i'm with you on this one, it would be good to have an affordable 4/3 body for every one rather than just a high end body for a smaller market.

    Agreed about the lenses, and you may be aware that it was reported that Sony are working with Olympus on some new technologies and new lenses, quite what format they will be for I have no idea.
    We have yet to see a budget version of the OM-D E-M5 and I doubt we will. I certainly would not like to fit a big Zuiko tele on a tiny M/4/3 body, it would be totally out of balance and look a bit silly in my book.

    That's why I want Olympus to resurrect their OM primes with a Nikon mount. I know I can adapt mine to a Canon body but a Nikon body with OM primes would be sweet.
    It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.
