Re: The only reason I want an M1X....

Iím hoping for the Orientation Specific Focus Point option to be added to the 1ii in the next firmware update. That would be a major advantage quite often in wildlife photography when your subject is fairly static, but you want to catch transient bits of behaviour while switching orientation.

I find I miss a lot of shots when I have to frig about moving the focus point via the (monumentally fiddly) 4-way buttons or (unreliable) track pad. So often the creature has moved again by the time Iím properly focussed.

Being very left-eyed Iím hoping for a joystick on the M1iii in due course (on the ii I have to use the track pad screen flipped out to the left to stop my nose moving it, and while handholding the 300 moving my left hand to do that is a right pain). Iíve played with these on the M1X for quite a while and found them brilliant and I didnít seem to knock them unexpectedly.

Too much Oly gear.
