Oh come on, anyone who doesn't know the difference in EVF v OVF based camera's in terms of battery life should be ashamed and calling it a shock in capitol letters seems to fall into drama queen territory these days.... is boring and repetitious...I hope they have lower power consumption, cuz mirrorless battery life stinks in general.
Even more so to the folks coming from a dSLR, where we get battery life in DAYS vs. hours with a mirrorless.
The 4-HOUR continuous-on life on my EM1-mk1 was a SHOCK to me, vs. 2+ DAYS with my D7200.
So you do either or better both; reduce power consumption and/or put in a larger capacity battery.
If someone puts a 12-100/4 on the EM5-mk3, with that battery, it is goina suck the power from the battery.
I only get about 2-1/2 HOURS of continuous-on life with the 12-100/1 on my EM1-mk1.
The 12-100, no doubt it impacts battery life if IS is engaged and running all the time, personally i have IS set up to only engage when i half press the shutter/focus so see next to no difference.
