  • The only reason I want an M1X....

    Is for the joystick, positioning an AF target at the moment is a real PITA.

    Oh....HHHR might be nice.

    Other than that it's too huge, heavy and expensive....IMVHO.

    A joystick would be a dream

    Hhhr would be good I think. But I can't justify cost or size on that basis

      Probably need a better computer to handle the hi res shots too.

            Be careful what you wish for. My XT2 has the joystick and to me its a complete pain in the butt. Far too easily moved accidentally between shots so needs constant checking to avoid OOF shots. Disabled mine as soon as I got it. Much prefer to focus, hold, recompose, then take the shot. Been using this method for over fifty years and see no reason to change. Can see a possible use for it when using a tripod, otherwise mine stays turned off. One less annoying distraction to worry about. Regards, Ian W.

              The only reason that I want one, is because Barr1e's got one!

                Don't joke. There may be those that might believe it.

                Seriously though, I believe a FW update will come later this year for the E-M1 II & hopefully with some of the AF area options but I'd probably be hoping too much for updated AF algorithms used in the E-M1X though (of course, that's not meaning AI AF).

                  I'd like an EM1-X but I think I'll wait until Olympus do the customary "free grip" offer

                              The only reason I want and M1X is when PhillD gets one.
