Rhetorical question -- this should be implemented with a firmware update.

Why hasn't Oly or Panny (or anyone else for that matter) integrated these simple and desirable functions into their control panels (SCP or equivalent)?

1) Exposure bracketing: would have the following options

(a) on; (b) off; (c) setup [with sub options for how much + -]

The GH2 has a bracketing switch and with the custom modes on the mode dial you could set up three separate bracketing modes and switch between them by turning the dial. If you want an m4/3's camera with some serious configuration options using buttons and dials then that is the one to get.

2) Auto Hyperfocal: this setting would automatically put focus of lens at hyperfocal distance for the aperture set (would work only in A mode)

It can't be that hard to program these things. Putting a camera into and out of bracketing mode is such a pain. This should be more easily accessible.

It's a known fact that where there's tea there's hope.
