nicolaiecostel: She's great at what she does but gee, my brain hurts every time I see her hold the lens backwards. Am I the only one ?

I do that a bit when making heavy use of the zoom or manual focus, especially if I want a smooth rotation around 90-180 degrees or so - typically shooting video.

With light gear like that it's fine. In fact it's nice to do it occasionally for a bit of a break. You can see usually she holds the camera the typical way.

No New Zealand?

Maybe too short a list. :D

Wow. I was expecting this one to be a candidate for first. I think it's a much better image than the voting suggests.

Yes. That last sentence seems to be your problem.

lightmatters: /sarcasm on
Pentax doesn't know mirrorless is the future. See what Sony is doing?
/sarcasm off

So, you bought a mirrorless about two years ago?

Sirandar: It's embarrassing that none of this made it to the OMD 5 mk1.... and no explanation why not.

I think a lot of the stuff also requires an electronic shutter, which the E-M5 doesn't have. Firmware can't add hardware. There was a very big shift in electronics used between the E-M1 and 5.

Yay. Some cool stuff coming.

Martin.au: I wonder why only those lenses. It can't be weight, as the 45mm for example weighs less than the 12mm, and the body cap lenses are very light.
Perhaps it can only stabilise a field of view up to a certain focal length.

Update:

Ahh, there we go.
To ensure that the 3-axis gimbal’s movements are unrestricted, the lenses are required to fit the gimbal in terms of weight and size. Not all existing lenses fit these requirements, which is why not all MFT lenses are compatible with the ZENMUSE X5 Series.

That means there's quite a few lenses that will work. The bodycaps for starters.

I suspect we'll see more lenses added over time.
