OM-D EM-1 - Great things 2 come

Hi Just a thought we have so many threads, and all got pretty negative. So I thought about a positive thread.

What I am really REALLY Looking forward too ... with my ONE


Lens 75-300 M.Zuiko Lens so light (in comparison to old heavy ones) and that extra reach (100 over the 50-200)

Lens M.Zuiko 12-40 - all the reports of the enhanced IQ and this lens are very exciting


The ONE using Wifi for remote Shutter operation SO VERY

The ONE using Wifi for uploading to various websites also, so very

Not least, Birds in Flight ... after my fantabulous conversation with Matt @ SRS on settings settings settings and the ONE's ability


What are you so very much looking forward too ?

It's looking as if the shipping time has slipped a little, to late October/Early November, assuming Olympus Support were correct yesterday...

Hope that's a little pessimistic?

If that is the case they had better put back the closing dates for the mmf3 and HLD7 too!

Oh and I am looking forward to selling my EM5 that's listed on here so that the 12-40 is mine too;-)

Chevvy, does that mean you won't be sending me your unwanted E-M1 then? I would give it a loving home.

Re: OM-D EM-1 - Great things 2 come

Had a play yesterday in London and loving the focus peeking.

Being able to shoot sports and wildlife and finding it good enough to sell all my Nikon gear!

Then that 40 -150 f2.8 when it comes out, hopefully later in the year.

Regards

Chris
