    I just had a pretty great Eid yesterday. I was able to take delivery of my E-M1 but unfortunately did not get play much with it at all until last night. I was tired and running on fumes and I think I was thinking a bit funny. I wrote this up last night and thought some of you guys might enjoy it.

    A few more things I thought might interest those on the fence. The ergonomics are very improved and might be the biggest reason along with the pdaf to buy this thing. I am loving the mode switch and I haven't even messed around with it much. Once I get the settings customized I am sure I'll love it more. The 4 way button is much nicer and those two new function buttons are located right where they should be. It is certainly an interative improvement but it is one of the best iterations of anything I have ever seen. Olympus spent there time thinking things through and it seems much of those niggling faults have been alleviated.

    I need to spend more time with the wifi app but I get the feeling that it is going to be an irreplaceable tool in your box. I felt the lack of articulating display when I hopped the panny m4/3s fence but the app makes up for it. I might not end up using it much but just having the ability will be useful situationally. I hope that they add some way to manage settings on the app. It could be fantastic to have a profile management tool built into it.

    I'll try to add some more thoughts as I get to know the camera better.
