What is the depth of the buffer when shooting raw (in nr of shots)?
Yes the evf is disabled and the buffer is good for 16 frames.

Thanks for taking the time to keep us updated Ian.

No word on an E-M1 replacement yet, while the 300mm should be out before the end of this year.

The 7-14 and 8mm fisheye lenses will arrive before the 300 some time during the summer.

I will double check but I think the 14-150 is imminent.

Incidentally, optically it is unchanged from the original 14-150 but the lens coatings have been updated to Zero type and the external casing has had a cosmetic redesign and dust and splash proof seals have been added.

Thank you. If the drawings on the FT org website are accurate there is a considerable difference in the optics between the old and the new.

Well I was told the optics are unchanged. The new 14-150 will be released at the same time as the EM5 Mark II

Re: E-M5 Mark II seminar in Prague

How is software updated in the MkII? Is it still done via a USB connection, or have they learnt the lesson so well implemented by Panasonic of performing update via a SD card?

I guess we'll have to wait for the first firmware update to find out, but I'm pretty sure it will be by USB cable (unless someone discovers the web link to download it like they did with the E-M1 FW3.0).
