I agree with you personally i dont see it as an upgrade that was worth waiting so long for, we could have had all these feature 2 years ago but they made us wait all this time for old tech past down from the em1 mk2Well, maybe you're right, but...
- Much improved sensor for E-M1 II
It's same sensor as the E-M1ii isn't it? Personally, in terms of raw file quality, it's a little better than the older 16Mp sensor, but it's not a big difference IMHO.
- PDAF and new AF system
Ah, yes - the PDAF. Forgot about that - definitely worth having on the smaller body, but it's just a lift from the E-M1ii.
- high end 4K video features
Has it? I've no interest in video.
- Lighter weight
Did we need lighter weight than the old E-M5ii? Personally, I loved the weight and feel of that.
- IBIS upgrade (including Sync IS)
Better than the E-M1ii? In any meaningful way? Oly keep saying they improve the IBIS with every camera, but recent improvements don't seem to have made an impression on reviewers.
- Faster burst shooting
Than the E-M1ii?
- pro capture
Again, an E-M1ii feature.
- bluetooth and connectivity upgrades
What are these?
I'm not saying that some of these aren't of interest - but there's nothing that moves the m43 world forward at all.
