Oh my, this is very sad news. I've been following Luminous Landscape for a very long time and always dreamed of any one of the photo tours. Deepest condolences to his family and followers.

AnakChan: I was expecting a D810 vs D810A Ha comparison too :D. I have the D810A like it. Here's a timelapse I did a few months back.

Yes. Kenko Foggy B I believe. I don't know if the planes are a blessing or a curse.

AnakChan: I picked up the Pen F on Friday and used it at the CP+ 2016 in Yokohama on Saturday. Coming from an aging GX1 (as such was using the Lumix 20/1.7 Gen1 lens on the Pen F), I have to say I was overwhelmed with the menu options.

Usage-wise, I left it at Av priority and didn't mess around with options too much. Love the exposure compensation dial. Found battery life was...meh. Put on my Voigtlander adapter & Leica Lux 35mm & 50mm, no issues there either. I used the EVF so didn't actually try the LCD zoomed display for manual focus.

Love the 5-axis stabiliser - I did push it down to 1/4 or 1/5 and seemed to have handled it ok.

Handling-wise, grip was small - I was a little concerned it'd slip through my fingers throughout the whole day but I had a wrist strap with me.

Overall results, a little warmer than I'm used to but seems there's an option buried in the menu (not referring to white balance menu option).

Hmmm...whilst I'd agree about a learning curve, I'd agree only to the extent of the Olympus system. I wouldn't say it's a learning curve in terms of technology. Possibly I'm used to the Nikon/Canon/Leica/Panasonic systems that the terminology/icons that Olympus isn't as intuitive.

For me it's more to do with standardisation than "basic" settings vs "advanced" settings.

Mind you, I had owned Olympus before too but those were the OM-1's/OM-3Ti days.

Thanks. Yep, sadly on the 1st day, I couldn't figure out how to get it to shoot RAW+JPG so I was only shooting JPG. Figured it out the next day. Heh.

I didn't find any stats on latency numbers such as startup time, shutter lags, etc. Any info on those?

Whilst that may be impressive and larger, this astrophoto of Orion to me is more jaw dropping :-

Like the 24MP, like the 3" 920k display, even fine with the ISO maxing out at 6400 only. But video!? Really!??

Whatcha mean? I've had my GX1 for over a month :D!

Pity it doesn't seem to fix the underexposure issue "under certain conditions". In fact I seem to have an overexposure compensation on by default.
