E-M1 looking much better than E-M5, and 4/3rds conversion...

at least ergonomically it's looking way better. You get a cleaner back with more distinct buttons, you get dedicated sport metering, AF modes buttons though they look dual-dial-mode like the E-3/E-5/E-30 which I wish they were not.  You get the Pen5 dial mode switch.

It looks a bit frankenstein adapting for 4/3rd lenses, I wish the adapter created a more "seamless conversion" making it seem more like an "E-7" of sorts more than "An EM-1 with an adapter to use 4/3rd lenses," but looks like it will do the best AF of any camera ever done by Olympus for 4/3rds lenses.

This camera will be at least $1,500 MSRP (my prediction) body only and with the 4/3rds adapter probably pushed into E-5 MSRP territory ($1,700) body only.
