2012 OMD EM5: "It's getting there, but still not a camera "real pros" would use. And why does it have to look like a slr?"

2013 OMD EM1: "It's not really a professional camera. Olympus needs to come out with something to compete with Canon and Nikon."

2019 OMD EM1x: "It's too big. Olympus has lost its focus. They forgot what m4/3 is all about."

Yeah, we're that messed up as a group of camera owners. LOL

I think some forget it's all about having a choice in a system. I'm happy with a small camera to a large camera. I mean heck, we have so many bodies and lenses to choose from and maybe that's the issue.

All the best and a good smile this post. Probably very close to the truth


I DON'T want to buy an E-M1x just to get a MyMenu function.  But Olympus hasn't done firmware updates to bring enhanced user interface elements to E-M1 and E-M5 cameras.    Mimicking Panasonic's "you bought it, you're stuck with it" philosophy.
