Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

I really value compactness so even with a significant uplift in sensor performance I'm going to struggle to justify buying this new model based on its rumoured size alone. An embedded grip is actually a real turn off.

I'm definitely with Mark F on wanting whatever new sensor tech finds its way into the new model being swiftly moved down to a smaller body. I'd like that to be the E-M5iii - I barely use half the features on the E-M1ii as it is. The only reason I use it over the E-M5ii is because of the faster electronic shutter and the improved sensor. The rest of its bells and whistles (Pro capture etc) are of no real benefit to me. Its improved AF is helpful sometimes, but since I mostly shoot things that don't move much even that is a marginal feature.
E-M1ii, Pen-F and too many lenses
