I hope this means that Olympus does monitor this forum and has heard the numerous complaints about the lack of updates to provide features that have long be available on lower models like the E-PL5 etc.

Let's hope there will be a V 2.1 soon with Focus Peaking.

What, so many people use it with manual focus lenses? Maybe 5%. There are so much more real customers would benefit from - panning detection for IBIS, better object tracking algorithms (for AF-C+TR), more reliable predictive AF-C, better video codecs, smooth digital zoom (including in video) instead of the pathetic 2x teleconverter, 25p for Europe, in-camera panorama (at least the way it is done in their point and shoots, better yet, how it is done by Sony and smartphones), AutoISO/shutter speed programming/biasing depending on FL, in-camera CA correction... So much more to spend their precious R&D resources on than support a few people who don't buy their lenses. And if focus peaking has any value, it is IN VIDEO - where for some reason it does not work in E-P5.
