Would you buy an updated Pen-F?

Have you seen the Darren Miles video on a successor to the Pen-F?

This morning I viewed the YouTube video that Darren Miles posted on May 28th about Olympus releasing an updated Pen-F and it struck a nerve.


Darren is correct as the camera's appearance is a feature that factors in the decision making process for many of us. Please don't trash me if it isn't to you as everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Darren made the comparison to Apple products and how looks and design are an important factor to many and has fueled their sales throughout the years.

When I originally purchased my E-M5 Mark ll I was torn because I really wanted to buy a Pen-F. Unfortunately the Pen-F at that time was lacking several features that were extremely important to me.

Weatherproofing (my deal breaker)

Better battery life

Tripod mount location

These were 3 of the 10 features that Darren listed in his latest wish list for what he calls a Pen-F Pro.

Another feature is a replacement for the 20mp sensor. I definitely agree with him that for m43 cameras to survive Olympus needs to up the ante.

Would you be interested in a new Pen-F if Olympus really made improvements?
