Specs are freaking awesome on this camera.  But is it me or do the shots seem a bit noisy?

Looking forward. A camera for the future.

I was really looking forward to this model, but it does appear more noisy than I had hoped.

Sadly this is a rubbish set of examples. Out of focus and camera shake, generally of no use what-so-ever.
I think people get really hung up about ‘noise’, I’m sure the day will come that quality will be as good at 1600iso as it is at 100, but at the moment its damned amazing! From someone who comes from years of film use.

@george. For quick shots to let us taste the capabilities of its sensor - it’s perfect.

DPReview has good shots with u4:3’s 14-42mm and 4:3 50mm lenses - but they do not have any high ISO comparison.

The shots tell me that Oly finally had decent sensor and I would have one point less to check when upgrading my E-520 in future.

Of course there’s shadow noise, but look at the exposure and lighting conditions.  And we don’t know the camera settings or how well the images will clean up in PP.

This is going to be the compact digicam that delivers the dSLR goods.  Sure it will have its faults, but I think it’s going to be a HUGE success.

How about an all black Olympus E-P1 camera and lens…maybe a 17mm pancake lens, a 34mm equiv, on a 35mm camera, plus a black viewfinder to go with it?
O.K. I’ll use black electrician’s tape for it.
Maybe, too a flip down lcd.
I guess I’m asking too much.
Or wait and see what Canon or Nikon comes up with.
Nothing like a white or silver camera to be discreet…what about pink, too!

“it’s perfect”, Ihar - think you meant pointless :-)

olyoly-ana - Agree; huge success.
Even bigger success - If only it was black ! agree with you there Oskar.

I’ll be posting a more varied selection of photos early tomorrow, and some videos too, from the 250 images that I took with the E-P1 here in what turned out to be sunny Berlin.

Just one question, is there any shutter lag like the LX3, or will it act like my 20D and be instant?

Of course it all depends on focussing but assuming it’s in manual focus.

La verdad tengo que felicitar a Olympus por tan hermosa càmara , con un diseño retro y a la vez con tantas novedades , en este nuevo mundo del cuatro tercios .Se la ve como una càmara solida ,de una calidad en sus materiales excelente , me parece muy bien de parte de la empresa se debe invertir para poder ganar este nuevo mercado que recien comienza , si se tiene la tecnologìa , se tiene el elemento humano , y el dinero sobre todo , por que no empezar dando un producto , como en este caso ; FANTASTICO .
Espero que los otros fabricantes , tambien empiecen a dar señales en positivo en un futuro cercano . Y no que se tiren a chanchos , en el buen sentido de la palabra por que tambien tienen la tecnologìa , el elemento humano y el dinero como para hacer cosas , como esta EP-1 y aun màs pueden mejorar con un poquito de paciencia y ganas de ofrecer a los aficionados y no aficionados tambien , asì que adelante . Siempre en positivo , FELICITACIONES OLYMPUS .

There’s very little shutter-lag, but the auto-focus is a little slow (certainly slower than the Panasonic GH1 / G1 cameras).

A much much better set of pics.

thanks.

I’m a little disappointed at having to use a LCD for composition and focus. Would it really be too much to ask for a true rangefinder digital that doesn’t cost more than 1000USD?

It won’t any better compare to my sigma dp1 in term of IQ….the e-p1 produce very rough,unclean quality & unnatural colour….looks unreal IQ…..very sad, but IQ better than the e-620….

The pics are not bad but also not so impressive. They seem to be kind of rough with much CA.
I’m sure my Canon G10 wouldn’t do much worse.

I’ve been upset over the image quality of leaves when contrasting with the sky. Your picture: http://img.photographyblog.com/reviews/olympus_ep1/photos/olympus_ep1_17mm_07.jpg demonstrates the same problem that I’m referring to. Is this a problem with all digital cameras?
