Some more examples.
I've noticed several things that are an improvement on previous Olympus m4/3 cameras.
As I mentioned yesterday, the shutter release is much better. There is a much faster and more positive response than on the other Pens I've used, though I must say the E-PL3 was getting there. With the fast AF and this shutter, shooting is pretty much instantaneous. In fact the whole camera feels as if its been given a few amphetamines!! It could just be that I'm coming from the X-PRO 1, but the OM-D feels pretty nippy to me. The AF is also top class, even in low light.
The built-in viewfinder is really nice. I've said in the past I don't mind add-on EVF's, but I might just be changing my mind. The pentaprism sited viewfinder is very good indeed. Easily on a par, if not better, than anything Panasonic have produced and very close indeed to what Sony have come up with.
Finally in an Olympus m4/3 camera, using manual focus lenses becomes as easy as it should be. I set up the function button next to the shutter to bring up a 14x magnification screen in the viewfinder. This is fine for focusing with, even in low light. The great improvement and one I've been clamouring for, is that now by pressing the shutter button the whole view comes back. No more having to press the button that brought up the magnification again. So this camera now moves up to second place in my list of cameras to use MF on. The Sonys with focus peaking still win, but this is MUCH better.
So a few things I've noticed so far that are improved.
Today is apparently going to be very wet outdoors, so I'll take the opportunity to do an ISO test and compare it with the GX1. This will get that out of the way, so I can concentrate on what I see as the real advantages of this camera, which is the handling.
Hopefully I can post this later today.
