I'll be interested to see how they implement handheld high mode. I'm fighting the temptation of the new GM glass from Sony, it's getting harder to do. Hopefully between the Mark II and the 1.2 glass it'll be worthwhile for this waiting for Olympus next move.

With the E-M1 you can shoot 8 sequential and stacked photos in approx 1 second, so you get a 64mb RAW file. Because it took 1 second to complete the shot it has to be done on a tripod, as otherwise the 8 images may not be in perfect register. Olympus have said earlier they were working on getting the time down from 1 second to just 1/60 second ... so there is no need for you to do this on a tripod. With the new 20mp sensor you would be able to now shoot an 80mb file/image in 1/60 second i.e. it can be done while hand-holding the camera. Here's a shot I took in the Hi-Res mode in Iceland.

I presume you are aware that Olympus will be releasing a number of f1.2 lenses starting this year. I hope it will be as good as the Nocticron which is currently the highest-rated m43 lens by DXO Mark.

Yes, I hope they will be as good as the 42.5/1.2 Nocticron and the Oly 75/1.8 - both lenses that I don't hesitate to shoot wide open. A 20/1.2 would be awesome, though it looks like it's going to be a boring 25/1.2 . . . .

When did the E-M1 gain high rez mode ? Thought it was limited to the E-m5 mkII and Pen-F

Sorry ... you are correct! The Hi-Res shot I made was with the E-M5 II which I had for a very short period of time.

Yup, and with the rumors that the first one will be the 25 makes me happy. A 50/55 is my favorite focal length. I used to be a 35 shooter until I had kids, having a 50 doesn't force me that close.

Latest news/rumor (FT5) ... and it's looking good! Hand-holdable high res mode is huge - it gives me less reason to get the A7R II.

Any idea if the E-M1 II will have phase detection for the old 4/3 lenses?

It's a 17/1.2 that I'm waiting for, a 25/1.2 would have to be remarkable to get above the 25 Summilux on my acquisition list.

I could live quite happily with an excellent 17/1.2 as well

Nice range to be sure, and being a "PRO" grade lens the optics are probably in the superior category i.e. as good as the 12-40 PRO and 40-150 PRO. But f4 = f8 in FF terms ... so OOF areas will not be too OOF.

An 8x f/2.8 zoom would be huge. Since this lens would tend to be a 'walk about' lens, size plays a significant role. It'll still be larger and heavier than the 12-40 most probably.F/4 seems a reasonable compromise.

What I would be more interested in would be some high quality wide angle primes, like a 10mm f/2.8 or f/2, and a 6mm f/4. That would start me tugging at my credit card.

I am a Sony shooter (mainly a7r ii) but find the longer lenses simply too big for travel; the new GM lenses even more so. So on a recent trip I thought I'd try M43 out with a used (but as new) EM1 together with the 12-40/2.8 pro. Quite honestly, it has been a bit of an epiphany, not just for the IQ but even more for the fabulous ergomics. For me, it is a nicer camera to use than the a7r ii. The controls are more flexible and intuitive and the shutter snick is a major improvement on that of the Sony. Of course, the IQ of the latter is clearly better, the raw files have much greater latitude and the low light performance is better as is the potential for narrow dof. But the mft files are fine for most purposes and the package weighs and costs a lot less. I have been particularly impressed by the build quality of the em1 body and the pro lenses and note that they offer a greater degree of weather proofing than the Sony. And the longer lenses are smaller and lighter. I've just added the 40-150/2.8 pro and it too is a gem. Current sensor technology is fantastic and is allowing mft to compete in the pro stakes despite its relatively small size and while my Sony will keep its place in my arsenal I am pretty sure that my future investment will be in m43.

I don't think anyone knows, but as the E-M1 does, it seems likely that its successor would have it too.... Unless there is something about the new sensor that makes this impossible.
