Even though many here seem quite underwhelmed about this camera, I am very interested. I have the Mark II and the higher resolution, the much better AF and 4K video are exactly what I am looking for. So I am interested in information on this camera.

However, currently is very hard to find the really (for me) interesting comments among all the threats complaining about all the things this camera is not and all the mistakes Olympus is making.

So I am hoping to start a thread on what this camera can do with people that are interested rather than what this camera can not do with those that are not interested. For example: Looking for pointers to interesting reviews, discussion on known features and how usefull they might be. Maybe also some comments and experience from E-M1 users as the E-M5 III seems to inherrit many features from it.

I think you know if this thread is for you or not. And if not, move along, nothing to see here (note the smily, no offence meant!)

As I said, for me the higher resolution, the new AF and the 4K video are some of the interesting parts. Has anyone see a good review of the 4K video capabilities yet?

All the wailing and gnashing of teeth over the hand-held high-res mode aside, I don't even care all that much about the "tripod" high-res.
I might have been interested in moving up to 20mpx.

The lack of a built-in flash on the E-M5 mkIII, for me, is what allows me to remain content with the E-M10 mkII (and its lowly 16mpx).

At my local Olympus dealer, I compared the E-M5 III side by side today with my E-M 10 II (with grip) and the 5.3 is both smaller and lighter. The guts of this little charger being the same (almost) as my E-M1 II means I now will have a small weather sealed companion to my E-M1 II for trips to the Bush, or to the street festival.
