Joke or fiasco!!!!

Fire up the the web petition!  Olympus must be taught updating firmware to add some new features to a two year old camera model is not acceptable unless they add all the features anyone has ever wanted!  How dare they!

It makes E-M5 the most retarded function-wise camera in the whole lineup, missing features already introduced (so readily available as source code) on other Oly cameras:

- custom self timer

- auto IS option

- time lapse counter

- adjustable direction of both dials

- focus peaking

as well as it doesn't fix flaws present from the very beginning, like option to assign quick access to bracketing settings to any of Fn buttons.

I'm sure there are other things missing and and I'm not even trying to point to ideas offered by competition...

If this, plus option to buy more expensive kit is all Olympus has to offer to keep E-M5 alive for another year (at least) then well... RIP.
