Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

From early reviews it seems that it's got great advances in terms of hand held high res, live ND and improved IBIS. BUT, and I think this is crucial, CAF is pretty much the same as ever unless you're photographing trains, planes or automobiles.

I'm speechless. At the price point it's at, and given its size and build, this camera should be providing state of the art CAF on animals, birds, people etc. It's crazy that it's still doing essentially what the E-M5 did in 2013 when using CAF+Tracking. The new Sony 6400 has now nailed this feature in a body at 1/3 the price.

Then there's the same old EVF, same sensor etc. This release falls a long way short of where it ought to be.

The only positive out of all this IMHO is that hopefully the hand held hi res and live ND find their way into the E-M5iii sometime later this year. That's a camera i might buy, but not this one.
E-M1ii, Pen-F and too many lenses
