E-M1 price same as the Canon 6D.

Share

I know we are comparing apple and oranges here. While the 6D has the FF sensor advantage the soon to be announced E-M1 has many superior features. But right now you can grab the 6D for the same rumored price of the E-M1….$1499 at BigValue on eBay (Click here).

So my question to you is:

Do you feel the E-M1 could be overpriced?

(FT5) High End OMD E-M1 has “modified” E-M5 sensor without Anti Aliasing filter.

Share

I can now confirm that the new High End OMD uses a modified E-M5 sensor. It has 16 megapixel but has on sensor PDAF and no Anti Aliasing filter. Along the new Processor this allows to achieve an improved image quality over the Olympus E-M5.

I have been told this is a great camera with one issue only that is shared with the E-P5. Price could be too high (around $1500 or 1500 Euro).

And finally I am sure it’s going to happen. Olympus will launch their first f/2.8 constant aperture zoom. The lens is said to have a better performance than the Panasonic 12-35mm X lens! And the quality is as high as the glorious Zuiko 14-35mm f/2.0 (here on eBay).

I also have been told there is one more surprise to come beside the new camera and lens…stay tuned!
