What if I tell you, you don’t always need a full frame or an APS-C camera? Today I shared 5 top reasons why you should consider using Micro Four Thirds cameras and lenses. These reasons range from the smaller and lighter cameras and lenses, to the overall image quality, the lens selection, as well as the ability to adapt a lot of different lenses from other mounts. There are many other reasons why you should consider using Micro Four Thirds cameras and lenses, but these are the top reasons that I personally think really showcased the benefit of Micro 4/3 as a camera system, for both Panasonic and Olympus OM System.

Shock: to close!


This is an incredible sad news:

Dear readers,

After nearly 25 years of operation, DPReview will be closing in the near future. This difficult decision is part of the annual operating plan review that our parent company shared earlier this year.

The site will remain active until April 10, and the editorial team is still working on reviews and looking forward to delivering some of our best-ever content.

Everyone on our staff was a reader and fan of DPReview before working here, and we’re grateful for the communities that formed around the site.

Thank you for your support over the years, and we hope you’ll join us in the coming weeks as we celebrate this journey.

OM Digital Interview: We do not intend to stick to the existing camera lines!


Phototrend interviewed Yoshiyuki Nada, marketing manager at OM Digital Solutions. And here are couple of interesting tidbits:

  • What is the vision of the photo market according to OMDS today? We would also like to expand our products and improve our sales to people who like to shoot outdoors, capture beautiful nature scenes in the field.
  • Does OM System intend to “stick” to the existing camera lines (M10, M5, M1) offered by Olympus or explore new segments? We do not intend to stick to the current range. We will make our best products by listening to the voice of users and considering the market situation.
  • No Full Frame plans
  • The PEN-F device is very popular in Japan, as well as in some European countries. Unfortunately, we cannot inform you of our future schedule, sorry.

What are your thoughts on this?
