    Nice that soneone remembers the Panasonic G1. It had almost perfect ergonomics (as opposite to the PENs), which needed only slightly to be improved up to the GH2. The AF was already very accurate and fast, the camera had a huge build-in view finder and a fully tiltable LCD. Some vendors still had to catch up on this or managed to to so only in 2012.

    The Lumix G system start included a focal range from 28 to 400 mm equiv. (14-45mm and 45-200mm zooms) with this excellent standard kit lens, which I still own (not so the G1). Short after a ultra wide angle zoom was added (7-14mm).

    No other mirrorless vendor had such an excellent system start.

    Any news on the DxO score of the EM5? Why are they taking so long?

    • Last I heard their benchmark broke already on the D800 and produced bogus results. So they have to “fine tune it.” Basically, they are cooking up new numbers to make the benchmark look believable again.

      Otherwise, why you even care about the DxO score? Users on DPR forums have already posted thorough and detailed analysis of the E-M5 IQ in *real world* from all possible angles. Summary: it just f-ing great.

    Hehe. Familiar sentiment. Quote: “No matter how good reviewers say a camera is, I still hate it. The camera is always the one thing which gets in the way of me making the picture I have envisioned or I am witnessing before me.”

    The answer is simple. Return to basics, the real basics: paper and pencil. :)

      And then you start hating yourself. :D

    The article about the G1 and the Steve Giralt piece ad some nice perspective…

  • Wonderful article by Steve Giralt. I would add to his wise words the essay “My camera is better than your camera” at DPR:
