Total let down as far as I'm concerned. I wanted a better sensor and built in EVF. They have what, 6 bodies now and other then a mild tweak they are all about the same. Please give us some variety, not everyone wants some retro thing that's almost the same as the last one.

Oh well, at least I'm not tempted to buy one and can use the money for something else.

VARIETY!!!

Firstly, the sensor is brand new, and designed by Olympus, and it seems blow outs are far far superior, which as an mFT issue.

Secondly, the sensor is related to the very fast focus. We do not yet know about sports focusing, but its claimed. The doubled information race would help that process, but we don't know if Olympus are doing something else. For low light, there is now a focus light on the camera body.

As to the EVF, I too wanted one, but I am thinking it may not be worth the extra bulk. I also suspect the hand grip will allow an EVF to be attached. Or at least a third party one. But the OLED display is said - by the Malaysion reviewer guy - to be great in bright sunlight. If it is, who needs a viewfinder?
