Re: (FT4) Coming soon: New E-M1II firmware update

About time too!

Part of the reason for me spending my hard earned on the E-M1ii was the promise of several firmware upgrades, they were all part of the pre and post-sales talks by Olympus UK.

The E-M1 got up to V4 with several major changes to the camera's capability, and this was part of the appeal for the E-M1ii...

I had started to feel let down, given the way the E-M1i was dropped for firmware developments as soon as the E-M1ii came out...

With the "promise"of a E-M1x I was starting to think the E-M1ii had missed out on the feature additions... I just hope this isn't just a bug fix! but genuine enhancements to the auto focus system as "promised"... time will tell!

I hope the expectations aren't met with disappointment as I think there may be FW updates for several models for the new wireless flash system (sender & flash etc) & more new lenses, so hopefully there are other genuine updates for the E-M1 Mk II to add more refreshing appeal for another year.

My expectations are that it will be a bug fix and new lens capability and nothing else...

My hopes are that they live up to the pre sales hype!
