Panasonic Just Made Me More Stoked for the EM5iii

I owned the GX8 and EM5ii and really enjoyed both. Still have the EM5ii but something about the "rangefinder style" is really appealing to me. Was really hoping for some of the G9 to be rolled into the GX9 but it looks like Panasonic is not going there.

With that said, I'm very stoked now to see what Olympus does for the EM5iii.

What are on your wishlists for the EM5iii?


-Let's get to 28MP. I'd accept 24, but 28 would be nice.

-Improved CAF (should be coming to the EM1ii as a firmware update)

-A practical option for back button focus

-Slightly bigger grip

-Better battery life

-4K at 60P is probably asking to much, but give me 4K at 30 and 1080 at 60

-Retain weather sealing (you listening, Pana?)

-On/Off switch incorporated into shutter button or at least on the same side

-Buttons that have led lights

-Native ISO 100

-Full Bluetooth connectivity

One can dream, haha.
