    Nice cameo by a OM-D user (and what he had to say) @ 7:22 ... apparently Kai DOES like the E-M5 :wink:

    AND: NSFW language at the start (and well- throughout)

    I was wondering about that- hope so :thumbup: He'd just need to come forward.

    "You don't like my camera" was classic.

    NSFW for some at the beginning.

    Summary: it shoots like a point and shoot (most everything in focus). Kai likes the form factor. To get deep DOF, you have to get really close. IMO, then, it's silly, because then you are putting the near object very much out of focus, for an in focus background, which is always an odd shot.

    I'd say, either get the technology into a sensor with DOF control, OR ditch the lightfield stuff, and just do a pocket point-and-shoot in that form factor for stealth and fun.

    The review was unnecessarily long. The middle bit was mainly useless. I used to find his reviews entertaining but it's worn off for me. Watch the first 2 mins, watch the last 2 mins.
