Wide vs Wide – Voigtlander vs SLR Magic
from Jurek Ugarow on Vimeo.

43rumors reader Jurek Ugarow posted the very first SLR Magic 10mm vs Voigtlander 10.5mm comparison:

Informal comparison of the SLR Magic 10mm with the Voigtlander 10.5mm on the Panasonic GH4. Forgot to mention in the video that the camera’s exposure meter and the histogram were used to make final exposure adjustments – and the anomaly in the bar scene where I say that I don’t know why it happened – in retrospect, alcohol might have been a contributing factor. 😉 All joking aside, I did find that with certain scenes that were all under artificial lighting, the the Voigtlander looked brighter with identical settings. Whether there is some physical explanation such as the type and size of glass or barrel reflections I can’t tell. Or perhaps the metering needed to be changed in those circumstances. Anyway, something to be aware of.

Hands-on by Damian McGillicuddy:

“Suffice to say, even though the OM-D EM-10 Mark II is the baby of the range, it’s got some powerful features that far outweigh its size and price. It has just opened up creativity to photographers without costing an arm and a leg, and I can’t wait to show you more of what it’s capable of!”

In an interview with Amateur Photographer Olympus Europe spokesman stated:

“Although Olympus currently uses a 16MP sensor, with future technology advances it might be possible to produce a model with a higher resolution.”

Elementary dear Olympus :)

Good news: Olympus improved the RAW files on the new E-M10II.

One of the very new cool features of the new E-M10II: It is equipped with AF Targeting Pad so you can trace your thumb along the rear monitor while looking through the viewfinder to quickly set a focus point. After the AF position is determined, press the shutter button halfway to focus.

Our reader Jokke noticed a good news reported by Dpreview:

Looking at the Raw files, we were quite (pleasantly) surprised: the E-M10 II appears to have less noise than the E-M5 II, significantly less noise than its predecessor, and even catches up in performance to the Canon Rebel T6S.

So it looks like Olympus improved the RAW file processing on the new camera!

Imaging Resource editor Dave tested the camera on his vacation and writes:

To wrap up Part I of this Field Test I can say for certain that I’m rather smitten with this little camera. It is ergonomically excellent to me, feels great in the hands, balances nicely with a wide variety of lenses and is highly customizable. It has terrific autofocus, even very dependable continuous AF while in “sequential low” burst mode, and is capable of delivering stunning images. I had a few minor gripes like the lack of a dedicated drive button and some odd irregularities with the traditional Olympus menus systems, but overall thus far I’ve simply had a ball with the E-M10 II.
