          I'm considering swapping out (so expensive though!) M4/3 to move to the Sony FF. You're a fan then?

          I wish it wasn't so expensive, I'm so invested in Olympus!

          •  

            @wittyusername: Iā€™m invested in both systems. But Sony imo better on all fronts except weight/dimensions

          •  

            @wittyusername: what are you looking for that you're not getting from your Olympus gear?

            •  

              @diamondd: Large size prints and less noise during Astro, the ability to crop more (something like the A7r I feel would be a lot more forgiving).

              But at the same time I'm putting out (what I think are) pretty decent shots, very crisp to A3, and I'm worried that I'm a sucker to marketing.

              Most of my photography is done on hikes, so I originally went with the OM-D EM-1 (mk1) due to it's size, but now there are FF mirrorless cameras that are the same size, I'm wondering if it's worth switching over.

              I'm thinking of waiting to see what Olympus put out with the OM-D EM-1 (mk3) before making the switch, unless any insane deals come up like that Qantas one.

    Beginner looking to get into photography..

    • +1 vote

      Not bad, but a camera system with a bigger sensor is preferable for night photography. FF > APS-C > M43. For me though, M43 is bloody fantastic.

    •  

      You'll need a lens with a large aperture for low light i.e. low f number. If you're looking at doing landscape and astrophotography you'll need a wide angle lens with a low f stop and also a tripod.

      This is not a full frame camera so you'll need to factor factor in the crop size when choosing a lens. I'm not sure what the Olympus range of lenses are like but Sony's APS-C lens range is slowly growing.

      A full-frame camera will help in low light but being a beginner this is a good starting point without having to fork out so much money on a hobby you may or may not enjoy.

      •  

        Olympus has a lovely 7 - 14 mm f2.8 that does ok for astro. Given the sensor size, I think a star tracker would be hugely beneficial as noise becomes very visibly as the ISO rises.

        OP - what type of night time photography are you thinking? Astro? Landscape? Stalking?

      Depends on your requirement. If you priority is lighter camera for travelling/hiking, than this is it. Having smaller sensor > more cropping > lens are lighter/smaller.

      NO for sure

    • +3 votes

      Well the M43 system has better lens range than the APSC Sony system. And between those two cameras the Olympus has in body stabilisation which gives you plenty of extra stops in low light. But the Sony you mentioned has a bigger sensor and better tracking Auto Focus for fast moving subjects. I'd give the a6300 weather sealing as a plus too, but Sony can't do weather sealing properly; still it's better than nothing, which is the case with the EM10.3.

      Others have asked the same question as you. See if this helps: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4339728

      At the end of the day, both cameras can take a fantastic photo in any context. Only limit is the photographer.

    • +3 votes

      you won't beat the a6300 for image quality, but the ergonomics are terrible. If you don't enjoy taking it out and shooting the damn thing, who cares how good the 100% zoom in Lightroom looks?

      the fact you're even asking the question seems a bit of an indicator…

      •  

        Yep I agree. Only time Olympus beats the Sony's for images are on in body JPEGs. But if you shoot RAW it doesn't matter.

  •  

    Can anyone tell me this or Panasonic GX880 with 12-32mm len which I could get around the same price range? I am a total beginner eyeing for a camera for my upcoming Europe trip.
    Thanks!!

      You might want to read this guide. https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/buying-guide-best-cameras-f...

      The problem with both of the cameras you are comparing (the original post and the GX880) is that you will probably need to buy at least one more lens to have a good travel experience.

      The original post includes a 40-150 zoom lens, which will be great for getting close ups of objects that are farther away. Say, a gargoyle way up high on a cathedral on your Europe trip. But that lens won't work well for if you are trying to get a wide field of view - say, your view of the city taken from atop the Eiffel Tower.

      Even the free 25mm lens that you can get via redemption with this deal isn't super wide - that lens is a great lens (and it's my and many other people's fave focal length - equivalent to a 'nifty fifty' on a full frame camera) - but it's more useful for, say, taking indoor photos of your family when you are in a relatively small room, or in low light, or just walking around - but not for landscapes where you want to get a lot in the frame for whatever reason (say, trying to get a whole building in the frame when you are kind of close to it).

      The lens with the GX880 has the opposite problem - it will do a decent wide angle shot (24mm equivalent on a bigger 'full frame' camera, although that isn't SUPER wide it's wide enough for most purposes), but that lens can't really get close up shots of anything that is very far away from you, and you may be sad about it when all your pictures seem like everything was pretty far away - and it probably was, but that doesn't make the pictures interesting.

      I tend to enjoy being able to get close up shots when I travel - like an animal in a zoo or a detail on a building that I can't get close to.

      I have shot micro 4/3 for a LONG time and own many excellent prime lenses (that means they don't zoom, like the 25mm in this post), but over time I have lost interest in changing lenses and now my go to travel lens is the Panasonic 14-140mm, which covers most scenarios in a single lens. I almost never take it off the camera (currently a Panasonic G85) when traveling, except indoors in low light. It isn't as sharp as many lenses, and doesn't perform as well in low light, but I love the convenience of not having to swap lenses when I'm trying to enjoy the sights I'm seeing as well as record them for the memories.

      All this is to say, for a beginner who is looking for a good camera to take on a trip to Europe, there may be better options than either of these if you want to cover all bases and don't want to buy additional lenses or swap lenses while shooting - and they may not be interchangeable lens cameras.

      That said, the E-M10 III is a great camera if you are willing to buy a wider angle lens to go along with the lenses you get with the deal in this post so that you can grab that landscape shot when you get the chance.

      Sorry if this is TL/DR. :-)

      • +1 vote

        Oh my god appreciated your time giving me such useful suggestion here.
        Yes the wide angle is actually my intention to get a camera, to be honest if I got either a Note 10 or iphone 11 I would not looking to get a camera but I don't think it's time for me to upgrade my phone just yet.
        Before seeing this post, I was thinking between the GX880 or G95 with 12-60mm but seeing how nice the price is for this post, I am really struggle to make the decision until your post. With additional 14-150mm lens the total cost will be around $1k mark which is quite above my budget but I guess this might be the way to go since I might not find a better option for this price mark.
        Once again, apprecaited your words here, they are really helpful!!

          Happy to help.

          And I agree with post below, the $799 deal https://www.digitalcamerawarehouse.com.au/olympus-om-d-e-m10... would cover all your needs and is great value. Totally recommend that deal, not the one in the original post, if you want to cover all your travel needs.

          I'd rather have the G95 with the 14-140. It costs a lot more, though and given your budget I don't think you can go wrong with the E-M10 III with these three lenses.

          Best wishes.

        • +1 vote

          I've got the G95 and 14-140 which I recently used on a overseas trip. It's an awesome combination, being lightweight, having a versatile range and also being weather sealed.

          For comparison I also had the 8-18 wide lens, a fast prime and also my Samsung S10. The 14-140 was used the most and my fav photos were taken with it.

          It's definitley not cheap, especially compared to this deal but you can get the G95/14-140 combination as a kit, so you don't have to get the standard zoom kit lens.

        "willing to buy a wider angle lens to go along with the lenses you get with the deal in this"
        How wide, an example please?

        • +2 votes

          I agree with the post below. The $799 deal with the 14-40 will cover almost everyone's needs and is a great buy. I own the Panasonic 8-18 and find I almost never use it. If you are really into landscapes you'll want something like that too (or the older but cheaper Olympus 9-18) but start out with the 14-40 and see if it's good enough for your wide angle needs. It probably will be.

    Total noob in relation to cameras. Is this a good all round camera for holiday shots and things like that? Normally I use iPhone for my holiday shots. Is it worth getting this or sticking with iPhone?

    • +2 votes

      Hate to give this answer but it's true; it depends on you. Do you want to get more seriously into photography? It's a good holiday camera indeed, but I could say yes and then you find it's all too much hassle and not taking any better photos and you just end up reaching for your iphone again. I would use it on holidays every time instead of a smartphone, but that's me.

    Would this be a good camera and lens package to take on a safari?

    • +1 vote

      Depends how close the animal is and if it is a bright sunny day.

    • +2 votes

      Again it depends, some safaris require you to go on small planes to get there, they do have bulk/weight restrictions therefore the lighter M43 kits are preferable to full frames/APS-C kits. Recommend the Panasonic 100-400 lens for this purpose. 40-150mm is not far reaching enough.

    • +2 votes

      No not a good combo for safari. I have been on a couple of African safaris and learnt alot. The included lenses in this deal discussed does have enough range. You will miss alot of photos and be disappointed.
      Firstly safaris are dirty and dusty and you are pretty exposed. Changing lenses in this environment can be very dodgy and you run the risk of consuming all sorts of crap onto your sensor with, also sometimes you get a second to grab a shot. Fiddling with lenses you may well miss some once in a lifetime shots.
      I would seriously look at something like the Nikon P1000 for another safari. Sure its got a small sensor but 24-3000mm (optical) without a lens change! Lightweight and shoots Raw. One of a kind camera. You will get good shots from unbelievable distances that you can hardly make out with the naked eye.
      If travelling with a partner, you could have one armed with a P1000 and perhaps take an APSC or FF camera with a 16-300mm say that will be capable of getting better quality shots in that close to mid range.
      Thats how we travel now and get some amazing shots between us.

    This is an excellent deal. The $799 kit with the 14-42 EZ lens is also good. I've purchased from DCW before, and have been very happy with the products and service.

  •  

    The Olympus Promotions page https://www.olympus.com.au/Learn-Explore/Promotions actually says MARK II (previous model), but their T&C says MARK III. Is this definitely for the MARK III?

  • +5 votes

    It is very important to note this camera has a 2x crop factor.
    So with the included lens you can take pictures at 80-300mm, nice for wildlife, far away stuff and portraits without super shallow depth of field but pretty useless for everyday use.

    You will have wait until you redeem and receive the 25mm lens which is 50mm equivalent before you can start taking everyday shots of people, landscape, street scenes etc and some people may be frustrated that it is not wide enough for everyday photography. So you may have to look at purchasing a wider angle lens to go with this.

    All that said it's a great deal for the price. But important people understand what they are getting.

    Hi Rep :)

    Sounds like an interesting deal and I'm considering buying one.

    I have a couple of question about the deal that includes the 14-42mm ez lens (https://www.digitalcamerawarehouse.com.au/olympus-om-d-e-m10...)

    Is that 14-42 lens the short one that expands when turned on? Can you please tell me the depth/height of the lens when closed, and when fully open? Is this the lens - https://www.mountaintripper.com/olympus-mzuiko-14-42mm-f35-5...?

    Finally, what warranty is offered on the body, and the lenses? Ie duration, who honours it you or olympus (aus or international), process for resolution if there's an issue such as just swapped or return and wait for service? I'm asking as a few reviews I read reported issues with the body or the zoom lenses, not a lot but enough that I want to be sure :)

    Thanks!

      Not rep, but I am certain it is this one here M.Zuiko 14-42mm III EZ Lens as specified in their kit ad: https://www.digitalcamerawarehouse.com.au/olympus-mzuiko-14-...

      Also, it's a bit of a tradition around here to do an ozbargain special with something specially for us dedicated bargainers, it brings out our buying spirit! While I don't need this camera, I find it hard to resist a special ozbargain :D

      If we buy this deal (or the 799 with 14-42 lens) one we will have a lot of lenses to carry and protect, can you include just for us on ozbargain a free suitable protective carry bag in the deal!

      I've seen this camera bundled elsewhere with a 'SanDisk 32GB + 16GB SDHC Memory Card + Olympus Camera Bag' but I'm just asking for a bag, as I'm not a #tightarse :D Something to protect this gear while we travel around with it, as it's only a bargain for us if it doesn't get broken and keeps working!

      Thanks in advance !

    If I purchased a silver camera - can I get the bonus 40-150mm lens in black?

  •  

    Thanks OP!

  •  

    How would this camera compare to Panasonic G85? If one would want to move from a d3300 + sigma 17-50 to m43, which of these would be recommended (e-m10 iii vs g85)?

    Lets say 70% stills and 30% video. Reasoning to move from apsc to m43 is silent shutter, size, weight, ibis and evf.

    Some insight is much appreciated :)

    Many thanks in advance.

      I started in M4/3 with the early Panasonics (GF1 then GF3) then switched to the original E-M10 when it came out and used that happily for several years.

      My main objection to the original E-M10 was while mostly excellent, it didn't have consistent, sharp focus on people's eyes. One day (after owning it for years) I happened to watch Tony Northrup's YouTube review and he basically said it's a great camera, except his only gripe was soft focus on the eyes. I felt vindicated - I thought it was just me.

      After a dalliance with full frame - D610 (carried it all around New Zealand - too heavy for me to enjoy hiking with it, despite the amazing photos) I went back to M4/3 and chose the G85, which has a great feature where it puts a crosshair over the eyes so you can see it's found an eye, and you can tap the screen to switch eyes, so you know exactly what the camera is doing. I really like that.

      My concern about the E-M10 III (which I considered seriously) was whether they fixed the eye focus thing. I did love the E-M10 for everything else, but that scared me off the III, which most reviews say is great, and the deal above is fantastic - and I'd even recommend it to anyone because I am probably just too picky. I'm just saying the mean reason why I chose the G85 instead.

      The G85 is bigger, and it's weather sealed, but my 14-140 lens isn't. I have gotten used to the ergonomics and I like the huge grip. I sometimes shoot backwards over my shoulder while riding a bike at people riding behind me, and I never feel like I'm going to drop it. I am very happy with the photos. I don't really spend time processing photos anymore - I just want to look at nice photos on my 12.5" iPad Pro the same night without spending hours processing, and the G85 fits the bill with great photos out of the camera. I now shoot JPG instead of RAW (shock horror) and just use the iPad to do a bit of tweaking (it now lets you separately tweak highlights, shadows and black point directly in the Photos app - sacrilege - not using Lightroom anymore) and I'm happy and can show people my photos same day and go on with life.

      I would recommend you go in a local camera store if possible and hold both and decide based on ergonomics, or the G85 eye focus feature if you like that. The Oly is smaller and cuter and looks cooler as well IMHO. I do love the silent shutter on the G85 when it would be embarrassing to make noise with the camera.

      If I were buying today, I might choose the A6400 instead for the tracking autofocus which is supposed to be amazing, but that's more expensive and I think to get a similar travel lens to my 14-140 the weight would go up. Or the G95 kit with the 14-140 because I love that lens so much - so light and versatile but still happy with the sharpness for my needs. So yeah, I am happy to recommend the G85 with the 14-140 or the weatherproof kit 12-60 if you don't need the range. I put on a Panasonic prime indoors so I can get away with no flash a lot of the time if I make people hold still for pictures (I like the 20mm 1.7 pancake but the 25mm with the deal above is supposed to be very good).

      I don't do video much at all but I think the G85 is better regarded for that. So that's sort of a non-answer but at least gives you some stuff to think about. Hope it helps.

      •  

        Many thanks for your insight. Have bitten the bullet and started moving to the m43 ecosystem. So far, the g85's controls are overwhelming, but in a good way. Its extremely feature rich compared to the D3300. Will be using the g85 from now on.

        Cheers,

    I would personally go panasonic. Im not a serious photographer but I do want better than a smartphone camera. Panasonic have better menus (slightly more user friendly) better touch controls, dfd focus is better than olympus contrast systems and similar IQ. I have a few years old gx85 and would still choose it or gx9 over an e-m10 mk3. I have owned the e-m5 mk1 and e-m10 mk2 and they were good but I prefer the panasonic.

    Add this 45mm prime lens to the bundle and you'd have a very impressive starters kit (currently about $231):
