    Graham and I are on our way to the launch event at the Design Museum in London

    I hope I will be able to post some photos via my tablet and Olympus Image Share (OIS).

        I'm beginning to regret not going, but I'm sure that the journey would have just been too much. Hope you all have a great time.

          Oh my, that does look like my sort of camera... It could replace my GX-7, act as mate to the EM-5 (same battery, I think) and then I would be fully back with Olympus.

          However I figure the price will be eye watering to start with. I will wait and see.

            Sorry this is a bit large! IDs welcome.

            Sadly quite a few people had already left by the time this was taken.

                        Haha, no - John, Graham and I are having a moderators' meeting over at John's neck of the woods because he isn't very mobile at the moment.

                        I think the earliest we'll see an E-M1ii will be Photokina in September although I am now hearing that top end camera lifecycles may be extended to 4 years, so September 2017...

                        Incidentally, although the Pen F may look like an E-P5 replacement, the E-P5 remains a current model for now.

                          If that is the case are there any features on the Pen-F which could find their way to the E-M1 via firmware updates?

                            I suspect not. The Pen F has a new 20 megapixel sensor and a new TruePic image processor. One key new features is the image profiler and it wouldn't surprise me if that was specific to the new processor. The Pen F doesn't have phase detect AF, which remains exclusive to the E-M1.
