Image quality was marginal, but it was about size. Best feature was using it in an underwater housing. The internal zooming and small dimensions made this a great 'tough' camera for snorkeling. Worst thing is I still have that housing which I think cost over $200.

TwoMetreBill: If the Mark II was stills focused, it would have kept the tilting LCD.

Re lenses: where is a close focusing 100-500 f/5.6 lens for wildlife, with a 1.4TC?

The other way around for me. The feature I wanted most when I went from the E-M1 mk I to the mk II was the articulated screen. The tilt screen was infuriating when I was shooting ground level portrait mode, or trying to, with my cheek buried in the dirt. I probably shoot 40% in portrait orientation.

JordanAT: I'm a little surprised the ones convicted of crimes at multiple parks didn't have their visa permanently revoked.

"Riding a bike in the wilderness" sounds like a crime only the Onion could dream up. (I get the meaning of it/reason for it, but it just sounds funny).

The use of bicycles and any other mechanical transportation in designated wilderness in the USA is illegal.

From the BLM Wilderness FAQ's:
"Wilderness Areas support a wide variety of recreation uses that are consistent with protection of wilderness characteristics. Recreational uses in wilderness include activities such as hunting, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, backpacking, camping, nature study, photography, and climbing. Bicycles and other forms of mechanical transport are not allowed in Wilderness Areas, since they are prohibited by the Wilderness Act."

Daft Punk: I am not joining the criticism of the IQ.

It is a trade off - fast speed and amazing IBIS is a function of the smaller sensor. If the camera had the same performance with a larger sensor, it would cost more than a D5. So quit the whining.

However, I will use the opportunity ( and every chance I get ) to rage against Oly for ditching the tilt screen for a fully articulating, sticking out at the side abomination that makes you look away from the subject and the lens axis.

What were you thinking Oly?????? I damn well hate the screen. Deal breaker for me.

The only feature I truly disliked when I moved from the E-5 to the EM-1 was the fully articulated screen. I can honestly say that at least every other time I am out using the EM-1 I curse the tilt screen as I lay on the ground trying to take a low level flower or mushroom shot. All hail the FAS!

Why would a survey ASSUME I own a mobile phone. How stupid! I own a 3G tablet and ignore the phone category.

Hmm, I see no change on my Nexus 7 unless I use the Dolphin browser and force it to 'iphone' user agent. Chrome and Firefox still look the same as before.
