    At least they have hopefully fixed the sleep recovery operation. That was the most important thing.

    OK, I just returned from some errands downtown, which of course included a casual photowalk. The OM-D had the 1.2 installed and, it may be my idea, but I think they did something for the over-sensitive viewfinder sensor. It seems to me it sets off at a shorter distance now. As I said, just an impression, please test it if you get the time.

    Would have been nice if they gave some more flexibility in the dreadful lack of controls in video. I think I'll buy a gh3 when that comes out.
