Reception for the 1.3 looks pretty hostile...
26

I wanted hand held high res, virtual ND, a joystick for focus points, and better integration with FT (not MFT) lenses, eye detection on or off on a button.

Score!

I'm delighted.

I do dog shots as part of my job, and fine art seascapes as a hobby.

Grumbles with previous Olys, too slow to change focus points, eye detection too slow to switch on and off, can't get high res without tripod (which defeats the point of a lightweight system), can't get ND filters on the UWA.

All sorted!

I can mix it with light primes for the dog stuff and general photography, and the waterproof pro FT lenses for seascapes.

Long time since I bought a camera at launch, but here we go...

Grumbles? Can't have virtual ND and HHHR at the same time, but you can't have everything.
Just one thing - it will be batch made, so if no one likes it the price could drop quite fast, on that basis I should wait.
