(FT5) Guess why Olympus didn’t improve focus peaking on the E-P5.

Share

The trusted source who shared the E-P5 firmware update in advance just shared some more tidbits:

He says the Focus peaking update was going to happen but a decision was made to leave that to a future model rather than update this model. I guess this means Olympus wants the soon to be announced E-Pl7 to have this feature to mark a more clear distance between the new and older PEN models.

I would have prefered a more “Fuji alike” firmware approach. Full intensive support and improvement of all current cameras. It’s a great way to create affiliation don’t you think so Olympus?

(FT5) “Emergency” E-P5 firmware update coming soon (still no E-M5 firmware).

Share

I have been told form a very reliable sources Olympus is working on an emergency E-P5 firmware update release. What I don’t know is what exactly will be fixed by the fw. Like you know last week Olympus released the new E-P5 fw with 0 shock addition.

And again, no E-M5 firmware update yet to come:(  A bit frustrating. Hope Olympus will listen to current E-M5 users and add the 0 shock feature for them too!
