So E-M5 III is a bit of disappointment after all

So, Olympus managed to keep me from being disappointed right up to the announcement, but:

  • No power by USB
  • No battery grip option
  • No external power option
  • Micro USB port !!!

If  somebody hoped to have a nice compact camera for time lapses, Olympus really made sure they will not buy this camera.

And seriously, Micro USB? In 2019? What were they smoking?

I'm starting to question my decision to buy it as a second body to my E-M1 II.

No new software features either. I was really hoping for Live ND at least.

I think I'll pass for now, maybe wait for a sale before my next big trip next year.
