    Re: So what do you think it will be

    Likely of much more personal interest is this from Pentax/Ricoh:

    https://www.thephoblographer.com/201...for-photokina/

    I had a conversation with one of their guys at the NEC show back in March and he hinted as much.

    Give me a tilt-touch screen (or a tilt screen and a focus joystick) and better focusing, and I'll be breaking my wrist grabbing the wallet for what would be a serious, low visual-impact street photography tool.

      A control ring around the lens mount would be nice. As would spot, highlight, and shadow buttons in the top plate. How about a third knob on the top that can be used for direct input of ISO and exposure adjustment. It would be a limited edition in titanium and it could be called the OM-D E-M4Ti.

          If its a sensor upgrade then how about a dual native ISO sensor at ISO 100 and ISO 1000 (or anything above 800).

            Too trivial to consider, probably.

            The lever would be the 'on/off' switch, where my right thumb could get at it.

            Yes, yes, I know it can be assigned, but it ought to be built that way.

            The 'on/off' switch would be the lever, that 'I' and many others 'never' use.

                  With sensors at 48MP on a 1/2 (8mm) chip, we can imagine the next 4/3 to be yet another significant step up, in all sorts of ways

                      I hope it will be a shiny new EM1 mark3 but I'm not so bothered what features it has, as long as loads of you lovely forum members buy them and then release some Mk2's onto the second-hand market at prices I can afford.

                      I certainly won't be buying a brand-new body anytime soon

                        4/3R now suggests additional video features

                        https://www.43rumors.com/ft5-the-new...ideo-features/

                        Whilst some here may not be bothered I think that is a good thing because it could well bring an additional user base (as long as it gets good reviews) and we all benefit from that in additional development and future support

                              Very true. I had a mild? attack of GAS recently. Whilst browsing the shelves of my local camera emporium I spotted a pristine Nikon F3HP with an MD4 and knew I just had to have it. Before you knew it I had added three Nikon lenses, a 24mm WA, a 55mm Macro and an 85mm portrait lens. Next came a Plustek scanner quickly followed by a superb Zeiss Perkeo slide projector. The moral of this is I suppose, if it gives you pleasure just go for it, I did and don't regret it for one moment, its added another dimension to my photography. Its your money to spend on whatever you wish. Just enjoy it. Regards, Ian W.
