AdaptedLenses: Interesting product, one I'll look for reviews on at release. Not overly concerned about the keyboard part, but if you've looked for good USB-C hubs, they aren't cheap, and as often as not they're a flop and/or have various incompatibilities. If the hub aspect of this works, it'll be a nice desktop organizer for the hub. If it doesn't it'll be a very expensive keyboard.

Anker is a decent name, but not name brand, and I got couple of name brand with two video output + USB ports + Ethernet port + Audio port "travel USB adapter" for little over #30 while on sale.

It is you money, spent wisely.

Mike FL: Moment lenses are decent. but Moment App is bad as my iPhone battery goes down fast.

I know how to close apps, and I have some other apps too such as Fimlmic apps.

They do not run down the battery that fast. if I do not close them.

FWIW, Qualcomm chip set is able to processing 3 cameras at the same time, but no one write a APP for it yet.

Also, noways, camera makers are trying to cut cost/corner, plus they have no R&D money to adapter new tech including choosing metal comparing to phone makers such as Apple.

Well, in the old days, silver metal body is not painted, I have silver film cameras,Nikon, Canon, Olympus, Pentax, and they are not painted.

Now, I have silver Oly-EM5 and EM5.2, both seems painted.

Mike FL: "now for $250"

If sales number is decent, Chinese will make the exactly copy for $25 within a month, if not a week, and sell them on Amazon & eBay...

The step down 3A DC convert should be less than $1 USD in China as you can buy 6 of them for $10 here:

Pentax seems going to be dead, but Pentax is not dead yet, well the funeral video is already ready for it...

Pentax is not happy with it as Pentax is fighting with last breath...

ImageAmateur: Good quality batteries and cards are still way, way, way cheaper than the film days.

Measure savings vs risk with commonsense.

Right, eBay and Amazon are full of Chinese counterfeit.

I buy batteries only from B&H, and or B&H alike respectable place such as Bestbuy.

I buy filters directly from HOYA USA to avoid Chinese counterfeit:

I used to buy car filters from Amazon, but not anymore, and now I only buy them from dealers.

"Italian tripod and accessory manufacturer Manfrotto has launched a range of memory cards"

So the " tripod and accessory manufacturer" expended to semiconductor manufacturer.

Hmmm...

How about Sandisk will make tripods...

As far a Grip goes, just pick one:

And then, "glue" the remote to the grip of you choose for example...

Mike FL: The low light IQ is very much as same as older E-M5s.

Right. I have EM5 and EM5.M2, and I do not shoot video.

My next body will be who has the best IBIS, plus I like smaller body with better weather sealed.
