I recently hit the 10k actuation mark on my E-M5. Normally, that would be about the point I start downloading samples and starting to ponder an 'upgrade' path. In fact the E-M5 is only the second Four Thirds or Micro Four Thirds body I've had that made it to 10k (out of nearly a dozen total!). The E-M5 really has been a pleasant surprise for me - good files, good (enough) handling, and none of the inexplicable quirks that marred my previous 43/m43 experience. In fact, I'd say the output is better on average than what I got from my now-sold Nikon D700. Thinking on it, there are really only 2 things I can think of that Olympus could do to convince me to replace the E-M5 with a newer model. Electronic shutter. I would like to be able to shoot silently at events, and use the 14-42X as a carry-everywhere lens. PDAF. There's still no m43 lens that can match my ZD 12-60 for sharpness and range. Getting fast, accurate AF with it would be very nice. On the flip side, there are a lot of things they could do which wouldn't interest me in the slightest: Better continuous AF. Don't do sports/action, and S-AF is fast enough for anything else. Larger body/controls. E-M5 is just the right size for me. And I've learned the controls. Fancier video. I'm a stills shooter. More resolution. Stitching works well for the once-in-a-blue-moon when 16MP is not enough. More dynamic range. Haven't had any irretrievably blown highlights on the E-M5 yet. Better high ISO. With fast lenses, 3200 is the max I've needed, and by my standards, 3200 on the E-M5 is (just) usable. WiFi. Too slow to be useful for transferring 8-10GB of ORFs. Apps (like the Sony 5R). Not much use if you're going to process everything in LR anyway. More ART filters. See previous. ? So, is anybody else feeling similarly satisfied with their cameras? And if so, is that bad news for Olympus & Co?
