Website? Yes, well aware that Oly is closing their camera division (they have other products) and this camera will be cranking out photos 10 years from now.
They sold the division. It's not dead yet.

Is Panasonic still around for their m43? While I know Oly is getting out, I'm sure a Chinese company will come around and pick it up to keep the format going. THAT said, I got out of m43 since GH2 days. I went Sony and never looked back on low-light, size, speed, etc. Took Sony a while to get their lenses going, but I've upgraded several bodies and still have my trusty old a7mk2. RIP m43.

Not at all. Zuiko lenses are phenomenal and Lumix and Fuji makes great M43 systems. I for one, thoroughly enjoy my M43 system when I cannot carry my A7 and heavy lenses. The whole point of M43 is excellent optics at significantly lower weight.
True. ZUiko lenses are some of the sharpest, always have been. While Fuji is not into m43 alliance, Panasonic under Lumix and Leica brands still makes excellent optics and really great bodies. You make a legit point about weight. They are also small. Besides Olympus lenses all work on Panasonic and will work long after Oly is gone if at all. Right now they signed the MoU with another funding company, doesn't mean Olympus is dead or people should panic and run. All the benefits that m43 has still stand today and will stand deep into future.

I do own and love an EM 5 Mark II. But I do think with Panasonic jumping into full frame and Olympus selling its business to another Japanese firm JIP (think Sony Vaio). The good days of m4/3 are probably behind us . With smartphone cameras are getting really good for casual photography and full frame cameras getting smaller and cheaper, I suspect the same fate for APSC.

On the bright side there might be more deals on m43 gear and lenses Smilie

A Japanese vulture capital company already bought it, that's doesn't mean they won't part it out to the Chinese though.

Micro 4/3s is literally dead. lol
A micro 4/3 camera was literally announced about a week ago, the Panasonic G100, which means that you literally don't understand what literally means.

quite a bummer, really. My perception could be wrong, but it just seems like there has been so much more excitement around APSC cameras like Sony and Fujifilm and all of the full-frame mirrorless options that Olympus and M 4/3 started to fade.
Well, not Sony, but yes Fuji. Sony is treating APS-C cameras like a runner up prize. Maybe try harder, and work more, and one day you can be full frame just like the real photographers. Fuji understands that sometimes you don't want to have a full frame camera, because a full set of lenses means that you have to take out your camera backpack, and you have to leave the house as a photographer. When I take my E-M1 with 12-40mm f/2.8 and 35-100mm f/2.8 or 45-175mm lenses to go on a hike, I get to put them in a small camera satchel that only takes up part of my hiking backpack. Therefore, I get to go hiking as a hiker instead of as a photographer.

Where Olympus messed up was releasing the E-M1x at $3,000 and E-M1 Mk III at almost $2,000. Compare that to the Canon rp, a full frame camera WITH lens, that was $1,000 here just a week or 2 ago. Now, it's a much crappier camera, with many shortcomings. But, the allure of full frame outweighs a lot of negatives. The Panasonic G9 got it right. It provides all top end photography and video features, with the 1 negative being a 15 minute recording limit. But it otherwise knocks it out of the park.

Defense m43 all you want but the number doesn't lie. Look at m43 sales in Japan in past 10 years and you will see it's tanking. Look at Panasonic, if they truely believe in m43, why would they bite the bullet and get into FF instead of double down on m43? Even Panasonic knows m43 days are numbered. With that being said, this is a good deal for people trying to get into photography without spending much for a small mirrorless camera.

it is a nice camera. the mark II got much better construction than mark III (mark iii is a lot of plastic vs all metal construction). and i think it just looks beautiful.
only thing i'd like to complain is lack of phase detection on the mark 10 line, you need to go to 5 line to get that feature.

that said. if you consider VAIO is still alive, then you could consider Olympus camera will be alive, they are sold to the same company. the MFT is pretty dead all things considered. i am just hoping they release the 100-400 IS lens before they are truly dead.

How come nobody cares about portability? I don't want a bigger camera/lens than m43, it's eons superior to the best of cellphone camera and it's still lightweight and semi portable. I don't want a big heavy full frame camera, I wan't the smallest thing possible with a big sensor.

I'm very happy with my MFT kit and I don't see it as a dead system at all. I carry my Olympus MFT far more often than my big Canon DSLR, and the size makes all the difference in the world. https://www.engadget.com/2019-04-...rview.html

It was a PE acquisition for Olympus camera, so it's not dead, at least not functionally so for another few years. This type of transfer of ownership will pick up IP, any R&D in flight and usually have operational guarantees baked in the agreement such that the go to market value won't be harmed in the short term.

The camera market has been in decline for so long that we're likely going to see brand consolidation as well as cross-industry strategic partnerships form. It will be scary and possibly lousy for some users in the short term, but I think we'll see positive changes in the future. The fundamental value of interchangeable lenses, larger sensors, continuous autofocus, optical stabilization, supertelephoto lenses and other such features hasn't disappeared, but there has been a serious lack of innovation in the user experience to help these companies stay abreast of how the market has shifted.

Imagine if Apple or Google acquired a weakened camera company and overhauled the bodies to incorporate an auto-mode that's machine learning optimized based on focus peaking (what you shoot) that dynamically changes your settings based on sensor inputs, has robust noise reduction (again, a great machine learning candidate), seamless cloud connectivity to ease file management and whatever else that would helps make the market more accessible to new shooters. The landscape could look very, very different. Cell phone cameras took away the bottom end of the market, but at the same time, social media has also increased demand for content and the need for differentiation and quality.

It is better to shoot with iphone than micro 4/3rd. sorry Micro 4/3rd is dead
Disagree 100 percent. I laugh at people when I see them holding a phone or ipad to take pictures at a graduation. This thing will take 1000 times better pics than any iphone. There are still great lenses. For 99 percent of people this camera will kick ass for years
