My new & good friend

Firtly, I want to excuse my (poor) english.

Two weeks ago I bought an E-M1.2 with 200 actuations on board. I would say, as new. Full body kit with charger, battery, flash, cables and even with a remote control, but I don't know why it was in the package.

Considering the price I bought it (660 euros), I think it's the best deal I made in photo gear. my previous Oly camera was a E-M10.2.

E-M1.2 is a huge step especially from the autofocus point of view, but it has also other advantages over E-M10.2, with which I will compare it.

What I like:

- better sernsor in terms of resolution, low noise,

- much better autofocus,

- HiRes (wow),

- better grip,

- better battery life

- weather sealed body,

- former flagship, etc.

What I dislike (or what I would have preferred):

- heavier/bigger,

- custom modes on dial, not possible to move them on Fn...

In brief, I absolutely love it!
