As you know the E-M5 is showing some banding issues when coupled with the 20mm f/1.7 lens. Olympus just issued an official text: “After checking every possible combination of a body and a lens, we found the phenomena only with this combination (OM-D, E-M5 coupled with the Panasonic 20mm pancake lens). We are continuing to study how we can eliminate this and we recommend for our customers using E-M5 with Panasonic 20mm pancake lens to keep a low ISO to avoid this problem for the time being.” (via Dpreview)
And Olympus confirmed once again at DC.watch that the Four Thirds system stays well alive. Not a surprise but we need to see some new camera and lens to believe you Oly
