Yes - I saw that. I'm sure it'll bring a lot of wildlife photographers to the system. I'm amazed that Oly spent all that time getting the E-M1x "AI" AF to do planes, trains and automobiles (all of which are large and easy targets for AF) when what many users were asking for was eye AF for animals, especially birds.

I'm sure the E-M1x is a nice camera in many ways, but I'm still of the view that it's a wrong turn for Olympus. Better to have brought out the way-too-late E-M1iii or even an updated E-M1iii with HHHR, animal eye AF etc.
E-M1ii, Pen-F and too many lenses
