Re: I’m still waiting for the right m43 camera
In reply to Grobb, Jun 8, 2013

I am waiting for the right m43 camera, too, but I don't have such a long list. I just need a built in EVF but in Pen form factor (small and functional). The other day, I went out and forgot to bring an external one, I could not see a thing on the screen to frame the shots, as it was too bright. I like using flash triggers, too, but with the external EVF, I can't do so.

Don't care about the rest in the list though. Olympus and Panasonic have the right lenses, 20mm and 45mm. That is all I need.

Maybe GX2 is gonna be that one, until then epm1 is usable.

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