    How about 25 and 50 iso settings?

      Now that would be useful... more so than a DOF scale. The scale on the lenses that have one is too small to be of critical use, even they also had the old-style aperture scale printed alongside.

      It depends on whether they actually gave better (ie less noisy) results surely? Or are you seeking longer exposure times for motion blur etc? I recall the ISO 50 setting that was (for a while) available by hacking the E500 maintenance menus was not that good...

        How is the list coming Ian?
        Did I ask for a switch outable IR blocking filter?
        To be able to do IR work with FT or to be honest mFT with the EVF would be yet another 'Creative Filter' - I get some stunning results from my old converted Fuji S20...

          That would get my vote too. IR work is quite popular, but it's expensive to get a dedicated camera

            I'll put a vote in for IR, I do quite alot of that with landscapes.

              I have just thought of something else others may be interested in... panoramas
              Oly P+S has a pano assist ... well why not in the dsl(r) world... I would love to be able to easily put together a 612 or 617 pano with less guess work and wasted pixels ... how about the possibility of putting together in camera or PP s/w a 612 raw file??
              Now do that with IR...Creative or what!

                It's probably not going to be the most sought after wish but....

                More ports for the underwater housings e.g. for the 9-18 lens
                OMD-EM1, 12-40, E-520, 12-60, 50-200, 7-14, 50, 8, EC14, FL50

                  Nah! Ikelite are best for ports

                  Just tried my new E-3 Ikelite housing in the pool tonight and everything was fine. Just need to get the housing to 30 metres and then I'll feel OK to put the camera in. The dome port for the 7-14mm is HUGE.

                    It was something that was advertised with the E-400, as long as you used the right memory card, but didn't work.

                      Please re-locate the Remote Release socket to the opposite side (i.e. battery end) on the E3 successor. At present it is difficult, and potentially risky, to use this socket when the camera is using a Quick Release L-plate (e.g RRS model BOE3-L) to attach to the tripod head.

                      Alternatively, it would be good to have a rear-facing secondary sensor for the IR Remote Release.

                      TIA

                          Ian,

                          A great list. One thing that may have been forgotten is weatherproof lens. We need more affordable lens' to go with weatherproof bodies.

                          Peter

                          I hope I am not repeating something already mentioned - I did trawl through all the replies before posting this but I may have missed it.
                          Best Regards

                          PeterD

                              Hee, Hee. Sorry

                              Don't worry, plenty of opportunity for it to get wet this summer on the south coast and Red Sea.
