Hi all,

I'm purchasing a gift for my father for father's day. He's always been into photography but he's never had a great camera - I think the M4/3 system will be the best place to start, especially with so many lens options and high-quality bodies. I settled on the Olympus OMD EM-1 as the best option.

However, I was wondering - the EM-1 came out almost a year ago. Are there any plans for a revision or a new model coming out in the next couple of months? If so, I can postpone it a couple months if it means he'll have a new model to play around with.

Any comments are greatly appreciated!

Given the history on the EM5, probably not going to be revised any time soon.

I would also not use the word invest...but I understand your meaning for diving into a system...
