Re: Olympus E7

Don't suppose they said how much it's likely to be?

Whether it is a DSLR to directly replace the E-5 or the long promised MFT camera with a PDAF solution for FT lenses, it will not be cheap. My guess is around 1500 body only. There really needs to be an update to the E5xx or E6xx ranges to cater for loyal users on a tighter budget (i.e. most of us).

One hopeful rumour is that there will at some point be a simplified, entry level OM-D at a lower price, but that won't help people who want to continue to use their existing FT lenses very much.

John, the MOST DECENT thing Olympus should do, is let us KNOW when they let the Dealers know I, for one am now getting annoyed ! Because if the Sept date is correct, Dealers MUST KNOW NOW to buy stocks

A friend has just taken delivery of a Nikon D4, saying that it is THE BEST for Birds inflight ... its lock on auto focus array is better than any Canon or other Nikon ....

its heavy and I would have it without big battery unit ... BUT frankly I am so disappointed with the lack of "help" Oly E-5 is giving me for Bif that I am seriously considering this move ... VERY SOON I was so disappointed that the OM-D E-M5 failed here miserably

Chevvy, I think "poorer" is probably too strong a word but I do find the E-M5 images to be crisper than the Canon ones. The main issue is the availability of m4/3 long telephoto primes, the 75-300 I have is excellent but not up to the 300mm f2.8 I owned. However as I said the Canon 400mm L f5.6 gives stunning results on the E-M5 and providing the subject is suitable for MF then I can't see me looking elsewhere at the moment except for BIF. I think the 7D has possibly a little better IQ than the E5 but I haven't used it with the same lens and this Canon combo I have doesn't have any IS.
