FYI...the Custom settings menu and SCP were both enabled out of the box on my new EM-10 MkII. It was new and previously unopened from B&H as far as I can tell.

MarkyM: I may have missed it but don't see any mention of the 'Live Super Control Panel'. This does have it, right?

The SCP is my favorite feature on Oly cameras. IMHO much quicker and easier to use than Panny's Quick menu. With the SCP, there is almost no reason to have to menu dive on my EM-10. When enabled, it appears on the LCD in shooting mode when the "OK" button is pressed.

In the EM-10 review it was lamented that the SCP was not enabled by default. Here it is not even mentioned!

The MkII looks like a nice upgrade to the original EM-10 and one I will consider for sure!

Excellent! Thanks for the quick reply Richard!

MGJA: This is silver, but Canon 70D is gold. Heh.

Really, I am ever more convinced that dpr just hands those out in order to maximize page reloads as irate fangurls battle it out in the comments. Fine, whatever puts food on their tables is a-ok with me.

But the 100-300 has OIS so the view is stabilized even on my GX1. I have no trouble picking out a focus point.
