I wish they'd get pdaf into the PEN line or EPL line. I'm still on my EPL5 as their haven't been significant sensor advances in that line.
I know it has better video and image stabilization and all that, but all I want is faster AF. I'm glad they got the sensor in the Em line.
I guess I should have been more clear. I meant something in the f2.0 or faster area.
The 20mp sensor really isn't that much better in noise or dynamic range over the 16mp sensor. It really seems as if the tech has plateaued. The gx9 is a serious contender though.
I'm still waiting on a 14mm prime. Specifically a true 28mm focal length. I've got the panny 15mm but it's jpegs are cropped to more like 31.5. I'd also like a real sensor update on the lower to mid line of cameras.
If it wasn't for my current lens investment, I'd jump to Sony or Fuji.
Maybe the gx85/gx8 will come down in price. I was holding out for the Epl9, but that's not a huge improvement over my epl5. This looks like a good improvement, but I'll have to wait a few years on price. Maybe a gx8 to hold me over.
I don't need an evf. I purchased the epl series because I didn't want the evf. I wanted a light weight camera and I didn't mind waiting for the features of the premium camras to get to the epl series a few years later. There just isn't enough there for me to put out any money.
I have the 15 and 20 and. When I got the 15 I really got it because I liked it over the oly 17.
I use 12mm on occasion from the kit lens but there can be perspective issues. I find myself at 14mm mostly from the kit lens. I find the wider I go, the more difference each mm in focal length seems...
So, I've been waiting for a fast 14mm lens for a while. I have the panny 15mm but it's not really wide enough. I'm not really down with the 12mm focal length. I'm really surprised that one hasn't been made.
The largest lens I have is the Olympus 40 - 150 kit. The rest are pretty small. Most bags I saw were just too deep. I usually leave my camera in the bag sideways with the grip up. Maybe one day I'll upgrade my e-pl5 but it's still doing it for me.
I've been thinking about getting this bag. Seems about the size I need. It seems most bags I'm looking at that have the length and width I need are way too tall. Anyone have this bag? Other suggestions?
I'm starting to wonder if sensor tech has hit a plateau. There was a significant jump between the old 12mp Panasonic sensor and the Sony 16mp. Even with this sensor, I'm not seeing enough difference between my epl5 and this sensor to get hot and lathered, especially in low ISO dynamic range...
I just can't see spending 600 bucks on a camera with virtually the same sensor as my epl5. Yes, it has tons more features that I'll rarely use. It's why the epl7 is such a disappointment. I guess I'll wait a few years when the eplxx has the 20mp sensor.
I've been using chrome since the move to xenforo on my phone and tablet. It's probably the best moble browsing experience out there. One thing I'd like to see is continuation of pages while scrolling instead of hitting the next key.
I had the first Oly....ep1. Moved to the epl3 mainly for the larger grip. Then went to the epl5. No new bodies for me until the sensor performance improves dramatically and the epl line gets a larger grip.
