M43 Onion Rumors

I've just received an email from trusted sources about the new EPL-5. While Olympus has not yet developed Focus Peaking (FP for short), they have instituted a new feature coded as AP that will be more useful than FP. Here's how it works. First you go into the menus, press J, then scroll down and select (AP off) off, which of course means AP on.

AP works like this. It's most useful for taking portraits. Let's say you have a friend with a less than ideal skin complexion, for instance Lord Voldemort. Well, turn on AP, twist the focus ring, and whammo! Suddenly you have a lovely portrait. After lots of questioning and several pints, the Oly rep finally admitted that AP stands for "Avendon Peaking." Sure Sony has FP, but M43 now has AP!
