Re: Time to say goodbye ?

Sure, when I’m taking a shot in sequential L or H, I sometimes click off a few shots as the cars leave the start line. Then I get an evf lag where the last image stays on the evf for a split second - it’s not long but enough to mean that I then miss the cars further down the track.

I assume it’s to do with card write speed perhaps as mentioned above ?

Re: Time to say goodbye ?

To get the best performance then it is best to use a faster UHS-II card in Slot 1.

It does have a bigger buffer and and should work OK with short bursts with a slower card. I've tried an older Sandisk 95mbs card and there is a really noticeable difference with the new UHS-II 300mbs cards.

I've also got Rec View turned off - perhaps that is causing the problem.

I suspect that is the problem and that he is getting a review of the last shot.

As an aside, this thread is a great example of the importance of good usability design. It seems there's a possibility that the labyrinthine menu structures and OTT jumble of barely comprehensible customisation features offered by Olympus could actually end up causing come people to abandon the system when they needn't.

(Usability is one of the bees in my bonnet )

Edited to add: I've just posted another thread about some options which have disappeared from Shooting Menu 2. The latest Olympus manual available says they are on Shooting menu 2 but they aren't. My Firmware is up to date (4.3). I've spent over an hour looking for them without success (and I have a recent PhD in human-computer interaction so I'm not going to blame myself).

Dear Olympus,

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.

It doesn't matter how good your sensors are, or your lenses, or your bodies or even your marketing for that matter. If users find themselves confused, frustrated and angry wasting time trying to find things because you have devised a convluted menu structure which normal people can't fathom, and you change it without updating the user manuals, then they will abandon you. There are plenty of competitors out there ...
