I would love it to go with my 1 Mk II but having just spent over $2000 on a lens, my chance of getting that is nil (not from funds but staying married).If only I knew the future of Olympus. The EM1x at that price, so tempting. Dont really need it but..............
I saw that, but having recently bought the 100-400 lens, my spending has been curtailed for some time now.Digidirect 20% off on Olympus deals, with the STF-8 for $543.20 isn't too bad -
the Olympus LS-P4 PCM Recorder for $183 is tempting also -
The problem is that even though it's a great deal, it's still $4k
I felt the E-M1 II (bought six months after release) was a very worthwhile upgrade in performance & an increase in MP made it better too, particularly in being able to crop more when needed, but its performance & added features is why I rarely use my original E-M1 & of course, the E-M1 III is better again. I will be interested to see what comes next though & maybe I can persuade my better half I really need it after it has been out for six months or so with (hopefully) a price drop.I'm in the same boat regarding the price of the body and as such am still working with two original E-M1's, while the newer bodies are undoubtedly an upgrade I can't justify the cost unless one of my existing bodies died.
The truth is that while I'm always going to desire better performance my current bodies are rarely pushed to their limits given the vast majority of my pictures are downsampled for internet consumption, as such upgrading would make my life easier (through better autofocus/etc) without really changing the end result.
I'm hoping the next generation is a large enough leap (like the original EM1) that I can easily justify it, a 32mp sensor would instantly do it (diffraction just isn't something I worry or care about).
