SeeRoy: As the owner of an EM5 (I guess we have to retrospectively assign it a "MK1" label) this sort of nonsensical product says a great deal about Olympus, and indeed the entire camera business. If the MK2 itself is anything like the MK1 then addressing the cosmetics with a "limited edition" - for people stupid enough to care how the top plate looks - whilst failing to address the fact that the camera has only two good attributes embedded in a host of failings, is to treat the consumers as fools: probably correctly.1) The files are excellent, other things being equal. 2) The camera is small and light.However the general handling, firmware and ergonomics are pitifully bad. There's also the fact that in an industry where the replacement cycle is engineered to a frequency of about 18 months, the idea of "collectability" (as in film era hardware) is just a joke.
I have an OMD M5 that I bought when they first came out. I found setup extremely difficult. I read everything I could find.
It works well for me as long as my subject doesn't move.
I kept it.
concern? in my hands, with my settings, it doesn't focus on moving subjects fast enough.
deep7: On the one hand, good on ya Olympus for doing this.
On the other hand, Grrr! I would have preferred an EM5 but just got the much more expensive EM1 simply for the smaller focus points (vital when photographing small birds in trees). I'm not made of money so, um, Grrr! Ah well, the EM1 is still a nice enough camera...
excellent tip! this has almost solved a problem I have had since I bought my M5
Maxpedition has a similar bag. It's the "Colossus" I enjoy mine. it easily carries an ipad.It works well in environments where I don't want to draw attention to myself due to camera gear. When I move quickly it stays in place, as a good holster should.
This review is so frustrating to gain access to. I think that it's because I'm using my iPad? Perhaps it's due to my habits with my iPad?Looking at the review from my computer, it makes much more sense, and even has links to get the information that I want. So thanks for putting this review together. It will help me with future purchases.
Too little. Too late.
No thanks. I tried 3 S9100's and gave up.
I have used Nikon slr's as a pro starting in'72. Good reviews, and a good substantial camera. I wanted to like it, and tried hard.
No S9300 for me.
