No touch screen? In 2013? It's easy to picture Df users tapping and swiping their LCDs and getting no love. I'm all for simplicity and retro fuzziness but we all use touch screens now so why not on a new camera?

davidashapiro: This is a really useful and helpful article. Thank you. I am strongly considering buying the E-M5 (it seems to be back-ordered everywhere I've looked though). I have a PEN EP2 - which I really like, especially the size.

Two questions: 1. Is it possible to set auto-bracketing easily? I do a lot of landscape photography and setting/unsetting bracketing on the EP-2 is a real pain. I don't see this listed as a feature on the custom dials..... (and if it isn't possible, please tell me the bracketing control is not set at the bottom level of a series of menus as for the EP-2).

2. Size. The E-M5 is clearly 'cute' and has small SLR look to it. However, for me the beauty of the PENs is their size/function ratio. I've left my Canon DSLR in the cupboard for the past 2 years. So, is Olympus planning a revised PEN - with many of the features of the E-OM5?

It's best to set up your auto bracketing parameters and then save them into one of the four MySet memories (Shooting Menu One). Though you can set up a seven shot bracketed burst, you're limited to 2/3 stop range, so it's better to set up a one-stop bracket using five exposures. Hope this helps and happy shooting.
And thanks to the dpreview team for this tremendously helpful article!
