These are the things I am looking for in a m43 camera to make me interested in purchasing one:

  • There is too much talk about shutter shock one certain cameras/lenses, they need to resolve this issue. Maybe go to electronic shutter?

There is no shutter shock issue, there is nothing to resolve.

  • The high quality zooms are still WAY too expensive like the 12-35, 35-100 for example. These are the two lenses that interest me, but are cost prohibitive at this time.

There smaller, lighter and cheaper than there DSLR equivalents

  • Ergonomics, button layout, built in EVF/flash, etc… are not the norm yet. I need all of them. I know ergonomics and button layout are very subjective, but I have not seen one yet that meet my requirements. Panasonic is getting a lot closer than Oly and almost there.

This is a personal thing, we are all different.

  • Focus tracking for sports/action shots have not evolved yet. Phase detection vs Contrast detection should be along within a year, or should be I hope!

Again, a personal thing, we don`t all need focus tracking.

  • 5 axis IBIS on all high end cameras is not standard yet and should be.

I don`t think it will ever be the standard, Panasonic prefer optical IS.

  • Weather proofing should be standard on all high end cameras and lenses.

Weather proofing, its not essential on high end camera`s or lenses.

Hopefully, Panasonic/Olympus will come out with an all in one camera someday that meets these requirements. The GX2 or EM6 may bring things closer, but until all these issues are addressed, there are too many compromises, for me anyway. I know some will say “all cameras are compromises”, but for me, those listed are just too many for me to accept at this time.

I haven`t yet seen any issues, just a reduced bank balance.
