Great product video.

I can see it in the distance calling my name. I think we might be going on a date this summer.

Looks hilarious next to the already small Rebel T3. Once you carry a M43 with a couple of feather weight lenses in your camera bag all day long, there is no going back.

You can see its relative size next to the PEN with VF-2 attached.

Re: Olympus OM-D

I think this can start me with the M4/3 , a bit disappointed with the EVF. Being 4/3 sized and only 1.15X ( and with a 50mm lens ) that would means its actually quite a bit smaller with your typical standard lens ( 25mm ) yet still. Its the M4/3 native lens that I really lament, soft correction just not good enough AFAIC. Natively those are pretty lousy performance for lens of those price.

Re: Olympus OM-D

The EVF is bigger that the viewfinder on my Rebel. Not sure what lenses you are referring to but I have the Panasonic 14mm f2.5 and the Olympus 45mm f1.8 and both are outstanding and better than any AF glass I've used at those focal lengths before.

Once you get used to carrying a "man's camera," all those little one's look just a little "nancy-boy."

Re: Olympus OM-D

The number of people whom I read on various forums who pre-ordered this camera surpassed my expectation.

As a long time OM-1/2/3 user, I am glad to see this camera actually being released.

Cheers, Will.

Re: Olympus OM-D

Sandeep, that video is very good indeed. I would only hope that that music would play any time I pick up any of my cameras, and everything turned into slo-mo big_smile
