Re: This UI thing is a myth.

The UI and/or performance of the E-M5 has three aspects that annoy me no end.
1. No switch or button for bracketing

Agreed. Stupid. Oly just don't seem to understand bracketing or even continuous shooting,

2. The smallest AF area is twice as large as the GH2 and is much less convenient to use.

First part, is it? Never knew. Second part, no, assuming what I am doing is doing what I think it is doing (!), it is actually more convenient.

3. If there are no vertical contrast elements in the target area, the camera/lens will simply not lock focus (at least with the 14-42 kit lens). The GH2 will do so in the same circumstances.

Not had any problem with focus locks, but I always use quick lenses.

Having said that, I still kept the E-M5 and sold my GH2.
Like Louis, I don't feel the need for the accessory handgrip.
