I had heard rumblings of this a week or so ago. Sounds like focus peaking finally makes its way to the OM-D! Or smaller focus points...or better video options, or ISO 100, or......

A fun feature would be that when you set manual FL for IS, you can enter in custom lens EXIF data. Would be awesome for using manual lenses.

I'd care a lot more for higher bitrates and/or better codecs, along with image replay in EVF...

I guess it's focus peaking. HDR and smaller AF points are already available on E-PL5.

Yes...they are available on the E-PL5, but not on the OM-D, so it would be nice to have those features available on the flagship. Especially the smaller focus points. Focus precision is the only area where I feel my GX1 is still noticeably better than the E-M5.

I meant those features are not 'a surprised' anymore so it has to be focus peaking.

Maybe it will include a feature that will make my photos suck less, requiring less PP which makes them suck even more when I overdo them

No, the feature will tell you if your image sucks or not .

I must be the only person on earth who doesn't have a problem with OMD focus accuracy I appreciate my GX-1's pinpoint mode, but truthfully I never really use it, and instead just use a tiny yellow box or the 2nd smallest one.


As for firmware - Olympus could do a lot of work on how the OMD currently operates, because frankly it's complete poop. Typical UI created by hard-headed Japanese engineers = horrible. I wish they'd talk to Panasonic about usability.

MySets are the worst, for sure - what a pointless feature (as-is) on the OMD.

It's not the OM-D's accuracy, per se, it's the ability to place it directly on a focus point. I don't use pinpoint mode on the GX1 often, but the smallest box on the GX1 is about 4x smaller than the boxes on the OM-D, and even the magnify box at 14x isn't as small or precise. The OM-D is very accurate (it nails focus within the focus point box), but it's not as precise (it's harder to place that focus exactly where the user wants it). I also find the OM-D hunts more in very low light compared to the GX1, though both are superior to my 1Ds II in that regard.

I would be happy enough if they fixed all the firmware bugs...

If they do add focus peaking it will make me a very happy camper.

Focus peaking is just so nice when your using MF on a moving subject or don't have the time to magnify focus. Its the one feature on the NEX that I miss on the OM-D.

Focus peaking certainly seems likely to be the "exciting feature". I have definitely missed it since moving over from the Nex-5N

I was trying to do fast macro of fish today using both manual and autofocus while using a very strong circular polarizer in not good light.

That was a pain.

Focus peaking would have helped a lot here.

Just a quick iPhoto process:
