    Big event and lots of guests from all over the world. Maybe a bit overkill for a revamped existing model?

      Oh well, let's just give it a new name as a brand new Pro spec camera, and then all the previous denials of an E-M1 MkII makes sense!
      Looking forward to hearing your views and updates from the launch event
      Cheers

        What is the ETA into the UK?

        Certainly looks like the next thing on my wish list.

              Just watched it on the live stream. It went a bit odd around the area on sensor and then jumped to video so missed a load. Looks good from what I could see

              The 43 rumours site has a picture with a flip-flop screen

              Looks to have a slightly bigger grip which is also excellent from my personal perspective.

                    121 all cross type AF points whether phase detection and contrast AF, covering a 80% x 70% of the sensor ... now that alone sounds so much better for especially my Low Level Aviation photography, and lots of other interesting upgrades compared to the E-M1 .... I'm feeling rather happy with what I seeing! Roll on the hands-on tests!

                      Do something for none Facebook users if possible. I take it that 4/3 lenses will work with this edition?

                            If they had delivered hand held hi res mode then I'd be phoning LCE, SRS etc now to see how I could pre-order. However, since it's not there, I'll be waiting until the reviews come out. All I really need is improved noise and DR. I hope this is not the same 20Mp sensor in the Pen F since that didn't deliver any noticeable improvement over the older 16Mp sensors.

                            If they manage a true (raw file) 1-stop or better DR and noise improvement then I'll swallow my pride over the swivel screen. For that though I'll have to wait for the reviews to come out. Unless of course Ian can find one for me to review

                              Lest I seem negative, I should add that the specs on this camera look superb - esp if you're a BIF/sports photographer or are into video. As a primarily landscape guy, it's the DR, noise and resolution that matter to me.
