BigGa Says If Coming From E-3/5 You'll Be Disappointed..

.. in battery life!!

I'm a bit shocked that they've stuck to the same battery as the EM5. Part of me is happy because it means my spares will work on both cameras, but dear god ..... I know as Olympus DSLR shooters we've had to put up with probably the worst power management ever put into any modern digital cameras, but if the EM1 is like the EM5, trust me .... you'll be amazed as to how utterly rubbish the battery life is.

You'll probably find that any weight saving is negated by the 20 spares you'll have to carry around!

All MFT cams are pretty rubbish in this respect, however at least Panasonic stuck a bigger than average battery into the GH3 for their 'pro' model.

And the EM1 has a bigger grip space as well. What were they thinking .......

(I'm waiting for someone to tell me the additional space in the grip is to accommodate the extra art filters or something .....)
