Just like the m43 people say… it’s been crazy over the past 3 months for the mirrorless market… the Sony Nex-7 which was supossed to be released last year is now fully shipping (and everyone is reviewing it of course). Then the Nikon D800, the Fuji X PRO 1 for real enthusiasts and tomorrow… Olympus OM-D E-M5!
Actually, besides the form factor which rescues the legendary OM Olympus series (which has been leaked repeatedly over the past few days) there won’t be any big surprises from the Japanese manufacturer….
The main characteristics are more of an upgrade… 16Mpx 4/3 Live MOS Sensor, an EVF which everyone has been asking for years, a 3.0-inch tilting OLED screen… but no built-in flash (boboooo) and the logic upgrades on image & video quality.
Tomorrow we’ll get to know all the juicy details (prob via m43rumors) but some price leaks have also started to appear… and go from the 1100€ for the body to the 1300€ if adding the 12-50mm lens. So now that there’s a wide range of high-end mirrorless cameras… which one are you gonna go for? Or will you wait for Panny? (because that new Pentax K-01 is a bit horrible…).
