I just saw a post on the Olympus Digital Camera and Photo Enthusiasts Facebook group from an irate individual. He had seen all the good reviews about the OMD-EM5ii and gone out to buy one that very day. He expressed in his post his extreme dissatisfaction and stated his intention to take it back the next morning, less than 24 hours later, because there "is no excuse" for the complexity of the menu system. He compared it to the "elegant simplicity" of the OM1 and couldn't understand why Olympus would abandon that, forgetting "where they came from." I saw that a few folks were trying to calm him down and explain the fact that Oly menus are actually very information and feature-rich, very customizable and actually pretty well laid out. A few were offering to help him get started, suggesting that the vast majority of the menus can be ignored by someone simply setting up P or iAuto mode and forgetting the rest. I started to jump in but held my peace as I just don't know how to begin to explain that comparing a simple, all mechanical, all manual film camera from the 70's to a modern, feature-rich, professional-grade digital camera with full automation, extensive customization and many advanced functions is simply neither fair nor reasonable. Rather it seems astonishingly silly. It felt like comparing a modern automobile owner's manual to that of a single-speed bicycle. How about it? Is it even worth the effort in such a case? How would you approach it? Or would you? I just decided that life is too short.
