I bought this camera early spring and was shocked to find out a feature not even one single professional reviewer seemed to have noticed.
From standby it takes 2 to 3 seconds to activate the camera for a new shot.This makes it in my opnion totally unfit for a lot of photographers.
So far nobody has come up with a solution. The only way to get around this problem is keeping it atcivated. This can be done by 1. using live view 2. pressing the button half constantly. Another option is turning it off because then the start is much quicker. I do use the extra handgrip!
Another problem I met is that the Main Control Panel does not work as expected. If you want to change an item it seems very regularly changing the focus field alone.
I hope Olympus will soon come up with a solution or else I am forced to buy another camera for this really does not work with me !

Thank you Bluevellet, I will try when the camera is back from repair. Strange that nobody came up with this suggestion. The slow activation however remains but will occur less frequently and I will have to take along extra batteries.

About the Control Panel I meant the field with which you can change the focus area by moving a pointer, it is positioned below WB Auto. I assume the main dial is dedicated to this field and has to changed in the menu.............

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Review preview (839 comments in total)

I have the Original RX 100 and I experience great problems with the use of the screen in Sunny conditions so the viewfinder is a big step forward.
However I find it almost impossible to reach quality shots in the macro scene options as focusing remains a challenge

At random in this review the names E5 and E-M5 are used when comparing .
Comparison is in my opinion only done with E-M5 and not with the last DSLR from Olympus the E5
