    • New camera...too much choice :/
      I don't know what the guy is talking about, as he seems to say the images are too flat but then a 1 inch sensor in the RX100 is ok??? Anyhow, there are plenty of great images shot on the olympus system, and the PRO zoom lenses are some of the best and are small for their focal lengths. There are many other great systems out there, so you need to look at your style of shooting and what is most important to you.  If IQ is king and you don't care about size and weight, then save up for a Pentax 645Z.  But if you want something you can take with you anywhere, that are fun to shoot with, and have some pretty nice innovative features (like live composite mode, high resolution mode, great IBIS that allows handheld shots at 1/4-1/2 sec).  Also, check out John Brawley's latest video on the EM5ii and see if the IQ of that is good enough for what you are going to shoot?  I think if you are only delivering to the web then its fine, and your viewers are going to notice other things more than the IQ. Anyhow get what fits your needs, not what everyone else is using or are raving about at the moment. It what you do with it that counts not what you are doing it with.
    • Sony A7SII colors suck!!!
      I believe that it would be your grading skills that suck rather than the cameras colours?
    • 5DIV full spec and full image leak
      I guess we will just have to disagree on what is "awful" DR. Anyway... here's hoping the 5div carries over the 13.5 stops of the 1dx ii... that must take canon from awful to average?
    • iMac or specialist editing rig?
      That's not the issue for me as far as backups and archiving. Mainly making sure I have a 1 and 2TB raw drive on hand when my RAID fills up, being a little more aggressive about trashing things that don't need to exist (I archive to raw drives with a USB 3 dock). I don't deliver or edit 4K, but I do a lot of 4K on a 1080 timeline, so it's not unusual for a longer-term project folder to hit 1TB... and that's about 6 hours to copy to an archive, test the archive, and delete from the RAID and the backup. So I try not to let archiving backlog as much as I used to. Then again, nothing sucks like archiving and then the client calls and says "so and so's title just changed, can you do a new edit?" Luckily, I use a dock and raw drives so I can do quick things right off the archive, but I try not to use those discs much. I did the same. I just bought one of these since I came from a Pro Tower internal RAID. Seamless and reasonably fast (300mb/s or so), $300. You can get a USB 3 RAID box for dual SSDs even cheaper, though drive costs are an issue. I have 7200 RPM spinners in this, 2TB each for a total 4TB working space. I have a 4TB drive in a USB 3 enclosure for backup at night. It's a great product and far better reviewed than the OSC/MacSales raid. Quiet, too. I have no issues with FCPX or After Effects (though I use an SSD for AE scratch files). I've never wanted anything but my apps, email, and billing on the internal drive. And I still think the Cylinder is a fail as far as no drive bays and relying on USB and Tbolt (and the iMac is no answer to that). But Apple always knows better than us, right?

      I've read this article http://yannickkhong.com/blog/2015/9/25/wrapping-up-the-olympus-journey-final-review-of-the-m43-system I don't trust it 100% of course but it makes me question if the oly m43 is what I want
