Re: Should I upgrade to E_M1 Mk II?

It's a yes and no.

The Mk2 behaves very differently from the Mk1. I started a thread on the AF. Then there is the lack of a smaller AF rectangle. They also removes all the Scenes assist. No more Panorama, Sunset and etc assist

The plus side, you get a really black instead of a reddish background in low light high ISO, The ISO seems cleaner at 1600.The CAF seems better but I hardly use that.

The multi hunting points, But I use only the one in the middle. The EV now follows the AF rectangle unlike previous it's smack in the middle. The WB is a bit better.

Some of the features like the ProCap don't work with all lenses, Especially those that are not with the Olympus label. If you have a lot of Panny lenses, then watch out for the dreaded fringing. Ans some Superb Panny lenses are not as superb on Oly.

Then there is that Swivel LCD. It's good, you can turn it inwards and don't have that glow irritating others but that Articulated gives a better straight line of sight.

So it's up to you. Are you willing to splash that $$$ or
