just not sure how soon. I hope the wifi is such that it can, or will after an upgrade, take GPS position from a smart phone as pics are taken and insert them into the pics.

I don't know for sure, but I'll be amazed if it doesn't. The E-P5 can do that now; it's a feature of Olympus Image Share, the smartphone app that works with WiFi on Olympus Pen cameras. I'm guessing the same app will be used for all Olympus WiFi-to-smartphone systems.

The drawback, and it's significant, is that you have to have GPS turned on and active all the time on your phone, meaning the battery drains very, very quickly (at least on my iPhone).

I am strongly considering moving to android since it has true gps as well as agps opposed to the crap agps only on my iphone.

battey loss will be more manageable with spare batteries.
