Re: Dream camera

A tempting camera to me would possibly be the Leitz V_Lux3 bridge camera with a f2.8 25-600 Leitz lens. It should cover most types of photography. I once used the Nikon 8800 and am still suprised at the quality of some of the pictures it captured.

Re: Dream camera

I already have my dream camera, the E5. Despite its imperfections (low light being the main one) it is a beautiful camera to use and is up there with the best of them IMHO.

Re: Dream camera

I must admit the hints/rumours about this soon to be released m4/3 Oly sound very encouraging so long have they have grafted in a new sensor

Now I agree with Internaut entirely.

I firmly believe that like dinosaurs and doozies big cameras will become extinct and be replaced by smaller and smarter.
Have we forgotten that it was the Olympus / Kodak collaboration that gave us the many benefits of 4/3rds and more recently led to the m43rds revolution -
best dust reduction, best IS, telecentric lenses delivering superior colour and edge to edge sharpness, etc.
Now with the convenience of pro quality images in a pocket-sized PEN I am taking more pictures than ever because I am able to carry it with me most of the time.

As I mentioned elsewhere, my PEN is like an American Express, ... "I don 't leave home without it"

The fact is, changing systems doesn't make us any better a photographer than we already are.

Re: Dream camera

I agree Mark that's why I'm seriously thinking of down sizing to the OM-D E-M5.
I think I will pre-order one anyway and if it performs well enough with my 14-54 Mk2 and the new weather proof adapter I might consider saying bye to my E-5.
I believe one of the key strong points of 4/3rds and m4/3rds should be compactness and light weight and have always considered the E-3/E-5 bodies on the large side (capable that they undoubtedly are).

Re: Dream camera

Well after reading the predictions for the OM D M5 it sound good but I will wait for the predicted E7 or whatever, by that time the possible problems should have been sorted out with OM D M5. But I do wonder what the the next Sony camera's will offer??
