NumberOne: Not having 'EC in Manual Mode with Auto-ISO' - something easily implemented in a firmware upgrade - still is, for me, the (main) deal breaker!Funny - to say the least - that most reviewers don't even talk about it, specially when this is the top-of-the-line Olympus camera and the one supposed to be used by professional photographers... :)
For all the ones that don't understand what I'm talking about and say it's possible to pick up the wanted/correct exposure/brightness in (full/regular) Manual Mode:Try doing it for a moving subject while the light changes...I can't - maybe superman? :)

...In Reply to Studor13 (Edited - Sorry, can't figure why it doesn't appear just after / tied to that message/post?!)
To answer your curiosity:1 - I don't own any «Think Tank» photo bag.2 - By unusable I was referring to the new (Lightweight TurnStyle™ Sling Camera Bags) line; as I clearly stated, my opinion - I add now, YMMV.3 - I can spot flaws in a product - everyone can - without even having/owning one.4 - The (poor) design/concept already shows, for instance, the zipper(s) will touch/scratch your gear - inevitably - whenever you take/put your photo gear from/into its interior, unless you dedicate one hand for making enough opening; the gear weight will even make it worst. :(Try doing it when changing lens or bodies! :)
...I could go on, and on, and on, but I guess I would spoil some reviewers job!Hope I made myself clear, by now.
The most pathetic presentation/publicity video I ever watched - 1 minute and 47 seconds of useless information about a product! :(Well, I guess in line with the bags, which actually also look more a bad "design gizmo" than a proper/usable photo bag...My opinion, of course... ;-)
andix: To this day Lowepro failed to understand that sling bags should be AMBIDEXTROUS.
...Except for the «Flipside» line, which is not totally a "sling".However, I really don't see any advantage of the ambidexterity for a sling bag, exception made for the possibility of distributing/changing the weight between shoulders. ;-)
Clint Dunn: Start selling that dang 10-24!!!! I like wide angle...and the 10-24 is the only lens I am waiting for.
Another One in the same boat! :-)
...Maybe now the review will be published!Sorry - team-guys - just couldn't resist... :-)
Hope you have sense of humour...

tiberiousgracchus: high iso images look yummy
They look ok, although I see some NR going on, specially from ISO3200 up, point from where it can be classified as heavy, IMO; a pity the ISO6400 shot is totally OOF... ;)Nevertheless, concerning IQ, it seems a promising sensor, or at least, not worst than the previous 2 generations (600D/550D)...To be seen, if this is (still) a trump against the new mFT cameras (EM-5 and the coming GH3), but I guess we have to wait till Christmas to come to a conclusion... :)
EXX: And no Sony version. Bummer...
The Sony version was discontinued some weeks/month ago... So, as expected, the new version doesn't offer a Sony mount.A pity, but Tokina explained at that time, that there was not enough demand to justify its production...
The conclusions - one can take - are quite different, IMO:1 - Of course, the updated (from an early version) firmware is supposed to do better, specially in what the "jpg engine" is concerned; this can be clearly seen...2 - Regarding "sensor IQ quality" - RAW files territory - the "gain" is more marginal from version 0.2 to 1.0; again, this is obvious from the pictures...
So, definitively firmware 1.0 produces better IQ, but the improvements are not night-and-day, in other words, firmware updates (can) make a difference, but miracles can't be expected... :)
