E-p5, silent shutter ?

Hi all
I've just got myself a used E-p5 from the bay, and I'm wondering whether it's got the silent shutter and if not do people think that Olympus will update the firmware further and include this handy feature and maybe stacking would be nice, with the option to just save the composite image, your thoughts please (camera is in the post)

Cliff

Re: E-p5, silent shutter ?

No - it's not got silent shutter and I doubt it ever will get it (or any other new features by firmware TBH).

Do make sure you have the latest firmware though - it's got EFCS (0-sec anti-shock) which is essential for shutter-shock-free pictures.

Yes........until Wednesday.

According to the Olympus sales blurb the E-P5 is modeled on the 1963 PEN-F.

According to the well known rumour site http://www.43rumors.com/page/2/ the new digital PEN-F will be launched on Wednesday.

Not much chance of any updates to the E-P5 now I'm afaid.

Regards.
