    I saw this on clubsnap.com and think worth sharing.
    I am not sure if this had been posted before.

    Besides Canon DSLRs, currently I have GF2+14mm kit, thinking of getting this to replace the Panasonic (for stabilization, noise on high iso, tilt screen and the most important look :) ).

    Cheers!

    Very impressive review.

    It's going to be a long month waiting for the EM-5 to arrive.

    Fog in the viewfinder?

    Robin posted the second part of his review:
    Robin Wong: Olympus OM-D E-M5 Review: Bukit Bintang Night Shooting

    Very impressive high ISO pictures IMNO (In My Newbie Opinion) :biggrin:

    But he wrote something a bit scary:

    I never had a weather sealed camera, but this is not supposed to happen right?

    I hope this is a problem with pre-productions units only, otherwise Olympus might have some serious trouble.

    I saw a video where he was talking about the fogging{video below}. Not sure if the fogging was inside or just on the outside of the viewfinder lens. If it is on the inside the camera weather sealing was compromised and the electronics are in danger of failure{at least the veiwfinder anyway}. I have had issues with fogging on viewfinders with non-weather sealed cameras and it was ALWAYS on the outside , not inside. Plus if it had been on the inside it wouldn't go away , once fogged inside it would stay fogged or worse turn to fungus{same goes for a lens}. They make spray that you put on the outer lens to prevent fogging.
