    You may change the topic to: What I need in my next camera.
    The good thing in :43: that almost every missing in your current camera exist in other cameras. So if the feature hurt your shooting style, you can always obtain it in your next camera.

    ...has not been lost with PL25 on it.

    but seriously, I want smoother operation on the EPL5 touch screen, a solid mode dial and crisp buttons. I've always been fond of panasonic's handling and colour accuracy, but olympus' function.

    it's also better to have built-in GPS, better mics and loose layout.

    I want to be able to set tag/keywords on the camera. That way I can split the pictures up based on event/context starting from the camera. I can leave ratings/flags on those special pictures, etc.

    That's a first! I have never heard anyone praising color accuracy on Panasonic cameras in JPEG, but that the latest generation Panasonic cameras are finally catching up to Olympus in this area...

    Basically, all of the E-M5's functionality in a rangefinder body (including EVF) as a second/backup. And I'd very much appreciate Oly putting some custom modes ON THE DIAL ( so I can create presets for bracketed shooting that don't require menu diving or holding down a button while shooting. Drop Art and Scene modes, far as I care. I can get to those via the SCP anyway, as they're filter modes and not shooting modes per se and should superimpose on the desired shooting mode (auto, P,A,S, or M).

    I'd agree that my E-PL5 does have greater WB accuracy, but the colour rendering shows an obvious exaggeration

    Did you have the warm color option switched off? For JPEG, I always stay away from "vivid" or "enhanced" options as well. In my past experience, I find Panasonic jpegs to reproduce unnatural, greenish skin tone because of color shift from orange to yellow and yellow to green, which are also well-documented in "Imatest" results conducted by online reviewers. This was the very reason that drove me from the GF1 to an E-PL1 in the first place...

    I wish my E-PM1s had an extra Fn button, the new Sony sensor, and the Keyline II art filter.

    Oh wait... I guessd that means I wish my E-PM1s were E-PM2s. ;)

    I always tried to set to get the neutral colour, but there's the shift towards blue and orange too, which is I think Olympus has done on purpose to make the image look unique, my e-pl5 has even rendered a certain "green" as blue

    I wish my E-PM1 had control dials like the OMD. I also wish it had the zoom focus feature that I guess the other Oly cameras have. And I wish it had a flip out LCD. So, I basically wish it was an OMD with a flip out screen. I also wish it didn't have the shutter shock issues. But no camera is perfect.
