The slow, but sure movement towards EVF's and fully articulated LCD's

    Is so refreshing. All we now need is some attention to ergonomics. Oly's latest addition to the stable is, to me, the most exciting one for years.

    I'm all for EVFs on everything...articulating screens are nice, but I'm happy with a simple tilting one! :)

    All I really need is the tilt as well. Those low or ground level shots are getting harder as the years go by. I'd never go back.

    its almost like its all heading towards the G1
    * articulated screen
    * class leading EVF
    * light body (almost same weight as E-PL5, 100g lighter than EM5 Mii)
    * built in grip (no add on needed)
    * built in flash

    ;-)

    I started with G1 n then GX1 but did not like it due to lack of evf , sold the GX1 n bought GX7 n now hv GX8 mainly for 4K Photo features n perhaps 4K video later on .

    @pellicle@pellicle, How did you guess that I had a G1 ?

    So interesting that the first-ever M43 camera had all three important attributes (EVF, Full articulation of screen & excellent ergonomics). G7 for me when I next get to Europe.

    Fully articulated LCD are nice, and have some advantages especially when shooting in vertical orientation, but after using my E-M10, if I have a choice between 2 similar cameras, one with fully articulated screen, one with a tilt screen, I will with no doubt choose the tilt screen.
    A lot quicker to use & the discretion suits well m43 imho.
