Not sure what to you mean by upgrade, firmware or different camera?
Having just upgraded my EM5 to the EM1 I just wanted a capable pocket camera in case I need to use two, I also wanted something small that goes in a pocket yet offers good image quality all at a good price.
The Epl2 with its extended warranty and free 17mm lens offered me the best value for money at the present time so it was an easy decision.

Re: The backup

Your new e-pL5 is an upgrade to the E-M5 in the sense that it allows MySets on the mode dial : i.e. without holding a button down. E-M1 allows them too. E-M5 does not.

Aahh, thanks for clarifying that for me Ulfric not yet created any profiles to save but probably will do soon.
Appreciate the info.

Yes - since I have no intention of taking movies, I've got the Movie mode setting on the mode dial (E-M1) set to the first flash setting on English Bob's FL-99 tip here: http://www.fourthirdsphoto.com/keepe...sh-setups.html

Saves a hell of a lot of time and memory brain cells (of which I seem to have fewer each day .)

I've also set the Movie button to Focus Peaking...

You are so right! There must be loads of features I haven't yet discovered!

Re: The backup

I do find that as a legacy from my film days and many years working as a PJ that I tend to shoot either in manual, or aperture priority (shutter priority if covering airshows) so alas I am a bit of a luddite with the copious controls and options offerred.

Alas, I did suffer from OOF/soft images from my EM1 and after changing the IBIS to IBIS1 and using the tweaking availability for lenses, it appears to have resolved the issue but I am still dancing around the edges rather than diving in fully.

No doubt, as with most modern digitals with a huge array of options, someone will come out with a set of suggested "standard base options"..............when they do, I will be ready to try them, until then I must blame any faults that I perceive as being down to Operator headspace!

Re: The backup

This thread has me wondering whether to buy an E-PL5 for those times when something smaller than my E-M5 would be an advantage, the free 17mm lens being quite an incentive ... My only "compact" digicam is a 3.2MP Camedia C-350 Zoom which is getting a bit long in the tooth now!

In the first few days of my E-M1 ownership I did start a thread on this topic, in which I included my own settings. Now, presumably because it did not include the keyword "BIF", it was largely ignored.
