So, over the past couple of days, I've had the unfortunate experience
of spending time in a camera store that is very well stocked with
Olympus and Panasonic doodads.
Including the OM-D E-M1X (insert more letters here).
Unfortunate, because now I'm wanting one.
For those of you who haven't seen one in the flesh yet, be prepared to
be surprised. From the pictures, I thought it would be huge and heavy.
But in reality, it's quite the opposite. I would say that the size and
weight is absolutely near perfect. The camera with the pro lenses is
about as perfectly balanced as I've ever experienced. It's the new
modern incarnation of the E-1/14-54 combo. Only significantly lighter.
Where did you come up with this?
E-1 = 735 g (1.62 lb / 25.93 oz) 141 x 104 x 81 mm (5.55 x 4.09 x 3.19″)
E-M1X = 997 g (2.20 lb / 35.17 oz) 144 x 147 x 75 mm (5.67 x 5.79 x 2.95″)
BTW, the E-1/14-54/2.8-3.5 is too heavy for my taste, anyway. Enormous and heavy, compared to an E-M5 II or Panny GX9
with PLeica 12-60/2.8-4
Olympus Zuiko Digital 14-54mm 1:2.8-3.5 - 435 g (0.96 lb), 74 mm (2.89″), 87 mm,
Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 12-60mm F2.8-4.0 - 320 g (0.71 lb), 68 mm (2.68″), 86 mm
What if the Hokey Pokey *IS* what it's all about?
