    I just discovered this via DPReview forums.

    This is awesome. Not quite double tap like the Nikon's but it's close. I really missed the double tap on trash button to delete since switching to m4/3.

    Basically after you change this setting, the sequence to delete becomes: trash, ok. As opposed to: trash, up or down arrow, ok.

    Maybe one day Olympus would make it easier. For the moment I'm happy I discovered this obscure setting.

    It already is easier. In gear menu H, set Quick Erase to ON. Then in playback, just press delete (TRASH) and viola, image deleted with one button press.
    Cheers!

    What I did was set the one touch delete to only delete the JPG. This way I still have the RAW just in case. :)

    I'm not a big fan of one press delete either. Seems like the accidental bump can happen.

    Thanks for the delete-double-tap-tip! (say that five times fast :D)
    I missed that from my Nikon too. Turning it on now!

    That is a bit better but still not as simple as Nikon's double tap trash. I tried the quick erase but the trash button is far too close to the back button, I know I would hit it accidentally!

    I only delete after I download. Buttons on a camera are for capturing images, not for removing them.
