I loved my em-5 with 17 mm f 1.8 bẻfore it was stolen a couple weeks ago- I would buy another one in a heart beat accept the technology is getting left behind. Even the new baby OMD EM10 has features its big brother EM5 doesn't. Yet I want the weather sealing of the EM5 so the EM10 isn't for me. Problem is i can't see Oly updating the EM5 with wifi and focus peaking etc until they also have a new imaging chip to put in it. I don't see them doing that until the EM-1 has been out for sometime. Maybe a year or more. I do not want the EM-1 because i can get the same iq with the much cheaper EM-5 plus it is ugly. I don't want the EM-10 because of no weather sealing. Any thoughts on the future of the EM-5 update?

Outdated? Hardly.

It's still the same great camera that is now LOTS cheaper and easy to get.

Do you need wifi? Did you say before, if I only had wifi I could make better photos. Was the AF so bad that you missed focus and peaking will make you a better photographer?

I doubt it.

Old tech is an EP-1 or G1, and both still can make pretty good photos.

If you ask me it's the perfect time to buy an EM5
