New Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 — Not Convinced It Is Worth $601 More Than A Sony a6500.

My comparison of what I look for in a camera.

Click to ENLARGE.


I could be wrong but I don’t see the justification for the added $601.

IF it was APS-C or Full-Frame — yes.

But, darn it — it is a Four-Thirds sensor. Panasonic appears to be playing the same game recently played by Olympus with the much anticipated OM-D E-M1 Mk II. That too was priced, body-only, at $1,999.

I think the Four-Thirds vendors are HOPING that a $1,999 might make their cameras look better. Not sure that that is going to work.

Yes, the Panasonic GH5, at the end of April, with a new version of firmware, is supposed to get some groundbreaking video features. That has zero value to me.

I just can’t see paying $2,000 for a 20MP Four-Thirds body. Period!

It would be competitive if it was $1,400 U.S.

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II WAY TOO Overpriced For A “Four Thirds” Camera.

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II has some pretty impressive specs. BUT in the end it is still a “Four Thirds” camera and sensor size does matter.

This is STUPID pricing.

$400 more than the Fuji X-T2 and the Fuji is an APS-C sensor.

Same pricing as the Nikon D500.

I would pay $2,000, body only, for for a Nikon D500. But for a “Four Thirds” Olympus.

I think it is at least $200 overpriced.

Not that I was thinking of getting one. I am STICKING with APS-C. Thanks.

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II Specific Website.

by Anura Guruge

Click to access. Lot there. Worth checking out.


On paper the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II is pretty amazing — in terms of technology and this Website does a great job explaining what that is all about.

Check it out.

This is one heck of a camera. I always KNEW it would be! There is plenty of proof of that on this blog.

Yes, I am still LEeRY of the Micro Four-Thirds sensor. But, the Oly appears to be comfortable at higher ISO and that will compensate for the less senor area for light gathering.

All this said … RIGHT NOW … we have NO DATE, NO PRICE for the OM-D E-M1 Mk II!

So it is, for now, nothing but a famed Japanese PAPER TIGER.

That is pretty impressive. Olympus image stabilisation BUMPING against Earth’s rotation? WOW.

Talk about Laws of Physics.

Technologically, on PAPER, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II is one heck of a camera — but, alas, as yet, it is but a paper-tiger.

I am keeping an eye on this.

I want a camera that is limited by the Laws of Physics. That is TRUE bragging rights.

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II Delayed? Has Canon With EOS M5 Already Stolen The Mirrorless Thunder?

by Anura Guruge

with entire Olympus Press Release.

omddelayeddsfsf


Well the much anticipated Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II, as was expected, has been announced at PhotoKina 2016. But the wording on Olympus’s press release is curious. It says: “Olympus Announces The Development Of Its New Flagship Camera …”

“Announces The Development” …

Claims that the camera will come LATER this year, i.e., 2016.

Does that mean December 2016 — the Canon M5 slated to be available in the first week on December.

The specs, as I always expected them to be, are FORMIDABLE. It looks like it will be one heck of a camera.

But, in the end, push-comes-to-shove, the Olympus despite all of its bells and whistles is a Micro Four-Thirds (4/3″) and the Canon M5 is an APS-C — and sensor size does matter. I might, however, be TEMPTED to wait to see what the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II can really deliver.

Enlarge and stare at. From “canonrumors.com” — with THANKS.
