    Hello guys.
    I've got my pre-ordered E-M5.
    I'll do some test shots tomorrow.
    If you have some things you want to know in details about this camera, I am very willing to help or answer your questions to the best I can.
    I have the 12-50mm, 20mm, and 45mm lenses.

    How is C-AF with moving subjects? horizontal and towards/away of you.

    How is video quality (resolution) compared with other cameras that you have.

    is C-AF good enough for video ?

    Could you post raw ORF files at intermediate settings too from 3200 to 25600 (please test a tungsten/halogen in low light) lightsource with very heavy shadows and something with hair like textures and at least an object with 3 colors (red blue and green).

    How is autofocus with 20mm f1.7 ? does focus on your closest eye works good with fast aperture?

    Auto iso in videoin P mode goes to iso 6400 or just iso 3200 (in manual mode I already know its maximum 3200). does the tonecurve adjustment works in videos too?

    Looks very nice. What was your previous m4/3 body, and if you still have it can you do a couple of comparison shots ?

    The pic with the Pana 20 reminds me so much of my favorite combination ever: OM-2n and Zuiko OM 40/2 :2thumbs:.

    Can't wait til mine arrives!

    Be curious to know your thoughts on build-quality (for the body). Is the mag-alloy obvious?

    What ISO settings are available in video mode?

    My E-PM1 only does 400-1600 in video. I'd really like 200-3200 or 6400.

    Congrats. Make a brief review on IQ at low and high iso, possibly in jpeg. Tell us how the jpegs are OOC.
