Absolutely baffling menu layout on OM-D
Jan 2, 2013

The E-M5 menu layout has got to be the most ad-hoc interface I've seen on a piece of consumer electronics this side of a Yaesu radio.

For example:

1.  The FIRST item in the menu, under "shooting menu 1" is "Card Setup."  Why?  Because the most important thing I do before taking any picture is format my memory card?  Why isn't this option under the Setup menu?

2.  Why aren't all of the items under the "Custom -> utility" menu under the Setup menu instead?

3.  Why have a "shooting menu 1" and "shooting menu 2" page(s)?  Why not just a "shooting menu" page that scrolls, like Custom does?

I realize that the manuals have been printed and the chances of future firmware that addresses these inconsistencies is zero.  But I gotta vent.
