petebryan: I wonder why Olympus have put such a limited movement articulated screen on the back. I have a Pana G3 whose screen flexes in any direction - so for example I can use the camera at waist height in portrait mode which can't be done with the Olympus. By comparison the Olympus screen is a very poor design.
Incidentally, this is not a moan about the brand, as Panasonic have done the same with their new GX7. I just don't get why you would make an artic screen that is very restrictive and must cost more to manufacture compared to the simple two way hinge on the Pana G3,G5 or G6.
Although full articulation sounds good, in practice it kind of doubles the size of yhe cam when folded out and found it fiddly to use.
I just sold my xz2 in anticipation of this, however with this price tag and the drop in price of yhe omd, plus no increase in sensor size, I dont feel tempted at all.
Omd em5 with 12-50 zoom is just us1000 in asia now.
Americans should bring a class action suit against nikon and force them to replace d600 shutter mechanisms with the new unit.
Yay, when this technology trickles down to the dxxxx series, there will be no more complaints of soft pictures...
