  1. Yes, it makes my workflow better

  2. No, it's a waste of time that unnecessarily complicates my shooting

  3. Not sure, I haven't really played with the new features

  4. I'd rather the firmware would allow saving the changes to RAW

    Here's what the building looked like when shot before the E-M1's internal 'Keystone Correction' feature was used:

    Here's the corrected image using the E-M1's internal correction capability:

    I find the result useful because it shows you what's being cropped out in the finished product. I also find it irritating because it doesn't modify the RAW file. I can make changes in OV3 or many other programs, so find it of limited utility as part of the camera software.

    I think LR can do this too; so might be better to do it in PP rather than with the camera

    I'm waiting for a couple of clients to pay their invoices and I'll be buying LR6.

    I do it in PP, there's better control of fine adjustment plus I need to correct for barrel distortion and the like anyway. Nevertheless I always compose with the in camera correction on so I can tell what will get lost after correction.
