    Sad really.

    Compare the R5 to the EM1 MK3...

    The Olympus is 60 FPS RAW in electronic shutter on the R5, top electronic shutter speed of 1/32000 electronic and 1/8000 mechanical, vs 1/8000 on the R5...CD and PD AF that also tracks and can recognise objects like a car or animals, a stills buffer recording so you can take a chosen number of photos from just before you push the button, or just before and just after, I’m certain it will have better weatherproofing and better IS...ultra sonic sensor cleaning every time you start the camera ( I have never cleaned an Oly sensor in 10 years)....It’s about 1/3 lighter and half the price...

    Yes the R5 does 8192 x 5164 Vs 5184 x 3888 but it can do hand held and tripod based sensor shift images to create larger MP shots and has probably got a better performance in really low light, but I do think Oly have always been seriously under rated....

    There is absolutely no doubt Olympus is a star, but not everyone makes it to Hollywood.

    Olympus is as much a victim of their own doing as of the cartel and as of history and the technology.

    It does seem that the company guys did the right things and made some innovating class-leading products. As I said, it’s sad that the hot new stills camera from Canon is spanked by many of the features in the EM1, despite the fact that Olympus must have about 1/10th the development spend of Canon....

    I’m still hopeful some of my friends in Japan will be able to keep doing their good work.

    Wow that’s from a while ago....

    That was the first result of my “official” relationship with Olympus. About a year before that camera was launched Olympus got in touch and asked me to consult on a new project that would turn out to be this camera.

    This was the first 24 FPS shooting camera that Olympus had made. For years I’d been sending emails begging them to just add 24 FPS...!!

    Olympus have always been very conservative with their video functions. It’s a shame because it would have opened more users up to their system, but I think they also are very loyalty to their existing STILLS user base that value the smaller size and more singular design thinking.

    I’ve been saying 10 bit since then too !

    The entire industry is suffering. The rumor mill is trying to predict the next domino to fall. And, if some thought the demise of Olympus was bad, wait till it happens to someone like Nikon. At some point, even Mitsubishi won't be able to sustain these losses. And Panasonic doesn't care much either way. It's a drop in the bucket in Osaka. They can go too.

    And then it's Sony and Canon by default.

    I guess it's fitting as it has always seemed like they both run everything.
