I just want to share with you an exerpt of one of the latest article on the official Samsung blog (Samsungimaging.com).
“However, what I can tell you is, that the APS-C image sensor is bigger than micro four third sensors. The increased size of image sensors results in improved low light performances and greater dynamic range. Thus meaning, the image quality of the pictures taken with an APS-C are theoretically better than the ones taken with a Micro Four Third sensor” and “I mean, that’s like saying a usual VW Golf equals a Ferrari because it rolls on 4 tires.”
So we are VW and they are Ferrari. I dont’t know if I should laugh or cry. Do they really need to write such kind of s….. to “convince” people to buy their products?
I thought it would be interesting to compare the worldwide Amazon DSLR sales rankings. Please keep in mind that in every country you have different deals. Amazon is also not very popular in Europe and Japan like it is in US. I will show you the TOP 5 DSLR + the 5 most sold Panasonic and Olympus cameras
If you compare the rankings you can notice that:
1) Only Amazon Japan has a Panasonic/Olympus which is in the TOP 5 (On first place the white GF1+20mm lens)
2) In Germany FourThirds cameras are very popular.
3) Olympus E-PL1 preorders are quite low.
