Re: PEN E-PL9 Announced

An affordable digital monochrome would be welcome, sans bayer.

Re: PEN E-PL9 Announced

I had almost forgotten the tooth-grinding frustration you got from a PEN having only one top-plate dial, which meant you had to spin your thumb on the spongy rear multi control, which sometimes even ended up at the menu choice you’d intended.

Then you looked in the plug-in EVF and found it had got knocked askew as you took the camera out of the bag and so it wasn’t working.

For gawd’s sake don’t buy this stupid, ‘lifestyle’ camera: an M5 or 10 of any flavour, new or s/h, is so much more functional and enjoyable to use, and as has been said any recent smartphone is also a better choice.
