Like me! It's not just size though, it's the quality of the Oly lenses - in my opinion, far better than the Canon lenses I used (and still have).

Having said that, if, as some have reported, the EM1X is going to be much bulkier and presumably heavier, it will need to have many advances over the Mk II to tempt me. In almost every way, the Mk II is my ideal camera.

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

While I'd love handheld hi-res for landscape, the last thing I want is a built in grip. The focus again seems to be on speed. I want an E-M1.1 sized body that does handheld hi-res, and has a real increase in sensor performance in a light, small body that doesn't cost the earth. Looks like my E-M1.1 will have to last a bit longer.

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

I've moved away from big and heavy and certainly don't want to go back again.
That's just me, though, and I'm sure that the new camera will be perfect for many others .... it may even turn the heads of one or two pros as well methinks

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

With the appearance of these rumours I’m just waiting for the torrent of “Imminent death of APSC/Full Frame/Medium Format/Canon/Nikon/Pentax/Ricoh/Sony/Fuji/Leica/Hasselblad*” dpreview posts and Tony Northrup YouTube videos to start...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Can we conclude that Olympus will once again claim that the C-AF is every bit as good as a DSLR?
