What do you want in the next pro Olympus

Hi Everyone,

With all the talk of the new flagship Olympus camera I was just wondering what current EM1-2 users would like see, (within the bounds of reality), in this proposed new camera.

For myself I would like the following;

  • At least a BSI sensor. With 100 ISO base sensitivity.
  • Only increase the sensor resolution if it does not compromise the image quality.
  • 3 million dot Viewfinder with fast refresh rate and little to no blackout. Also, fill the viewfinder when in 4:3 mode and crop it for 3:2.
  • Ability to change the ISO with HDR1 & HDR2.
  • Better eye detection, CF and tracking AF. Better AF grouping options.
  • AF joystick.
  • Multi-Shot high ISO noise reduction.
  • Computerised background blurring as an option.
  • Keep the body shape as is because the handling of the EM1-2 is excellent.
  • Keep all the other EM1-2 features.
  • Bring the video feature up to date. Improve the 1080p quality. More options for slow motion.
  • Make both card slots high speed.
  • A realistic price - the EM1-2 was way overpriced at launch.

What I don’t want is the built-in vertical grip as this will just make the camera larger and more expensive. Grips should be an optional extra. Nor do I need any more FPS.

What’s your take?

Best regards,
