He's the biggest bs-er around...I don't understand where his fame comes from...where's that revolutionary sensor with a bio-membrane again?This Simon poster has some very specific time lines on firmware dates... . Designing hardware to support unused and hidden features at launch seems a little far fetched. I doubt Olympus is playing that long of a game.
Agree.If the EM1X is not this seasons top Olympus camera body. That could mean that the forthcoming EM1 mk.111, could be different and better. Wait for the specs. Only a month.
Congratulations on your 2000th message.
Regarding the F2, insert obligatory "they don't make 'em like they used'ta" statement here.
And get off my lawn.
Super easy, barely an inconvenience. Batteries are 1000x easier for small run manufacture than, say, film-stock. Worst case, people will use dummy batteries to connect cameras to fusion powercells...There is one thing that will prevent modern cameras from being used in 50 years . . . the battery.
In 50 years, I doubt there will be a battery that can be used to power today's cameras.
February tends to be FW month for Olympus so I'm expecting to see a new FW for the E-M1X announced, or released, alongside the E-M1iii and lenses. Possibly a final FW update for the E-M1ii as well. Waiting until after the E-M1iii release to update the E-M1X would be a mistake given its position in the lineup.I am guessing the E-M1X will get a new FW update a month after the E-M1.3 reaches the stores.
Is there a personal wish you would like to see in the FW v2 for your EM1X?February tends to be FW month for Olympus so I'm expecting to see a new FW for the E-M1X announced, or released, alongside the E-M1iii and lenses.

I like the EM1-mk1 also, as long a you don't use the 12-100.So it seems pretty much settled then, that this will be the E-M1 mk.III?
I would not expect too much, probably no new sensor, which would not upset me really, much more can be had from the "old" one, just give it a new processor. Olympus will hopefully use this as an opportunity to introduce the TruePic IX, giving it (give or take) the same processing power as the dual TruePic VIII in the E-M1X, enabling it to run all of the E-M1X features with a single processor. Physically it may just be the E-M1X minus the vertical part, which can be both good and bad. I don't like it as I prefer the smaller dimensions of the E-M1 classic to the larger mk.II and the (rumored) even larger mk.III (vertical-grip-less E-M1X). In either case you may have expect to pay more than $2000/€2000 for it.
Pretty much what I expected, if they don't push the price up too much then it could be a decent upgrade.Latest specs / rumours apparently
Same 20-Megapixel Four Thirds sensor as the E-M1X
60Mp for Handheld Res. and 100Mp for Tripod
More phase detection pixels on the sensor
Truepic IX processing engine
Improvements on IBIS
ISO 100 at base and optimized dynamic range
4K video at 60p
Additions on weather-sealing
Intelligent Subject Detection
Same body design ergonomics and battery as the E-M1 II
Coming with the new 12-40mm f/4.0 lens
Price to be around $2,000
