  2. Seems relatively uninformed for someone giving a public interview - or are
    Olympus /really/ that far behind?

  3. We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the
    Big Fkn deal - it's nothing more than a P&S with interchangeable lenses.
    Frankly, I don't see what all the fuss is about - rather, I fail to see
    what all YOUR fuss is about.

    And there are so many of them around?

    About what he'd net on Ebay for it. But why the bag, filters, etc?
    Looks like he's leaving the hobby altogether.

  6. We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the
    I fail to see any advantage of the system, and in my opinion it's been
    launched to appeal to the P&S market who want to use better glass - who
    by their very nature will be limited by price, else they would have
    already bought a dSLR. Which explains why there aren't so many around.
    There's not even a proper optical VF system on it, let alone something
    like RF - you have to use the shitty LCD round the back, just like all
    those hapless P&Srs have been doing for years.

    Still, at the next Olympics there will be thousands of Micro 4/3 users
    waving their cameras above the heads of the crowds, I've no doubt.
    Utterly negating the use of decent lenses on their P&S by holding it at
    arm's length. My God, what IS the point?

    What a dead end it is - it could have been fantastic, with a proper RF
    on it. A dead cheap digital rangefinder with good glass - but no, they
    had to go and dilute it to dumb **** level.

    In short, nothing to get your pants wet over.

    The important thing is a better sensor than the tiny P&S offerings.
    Except Sigma.

  8. Sure? Nothing about size, weight and so on?
    As a happy DSLR owner I can tell you it's certainly not a panacea!
    Anyone who thinks different really needs to look beyond their own nose.
    I've shot with the DSLR overhead, and even managed to get
    quite decent shots --- no, no lifeview or similar stuff.

    Probably that's the point of doing it ...
    Well, you are obviously to intelligent to be allowed near one, so
    you must use your DSLR for bad shots. My condolences.

  9. We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the
    drugs began to take hold. I remember Wolfgang Weisselberg
    Do **** off, you ****.

  10. It's called "attribution line" not "attribution novella".
    Envy doesn't become you. But I do understand now why you don't
    give your real name; I'd be embarassed as well.
