(FT4) E-M5 firmware update coming in mid December? Brings a small surprise…


How to  “trick” a sort of focus peaking mode on the E-M5

I just got a message from a source saying that there will be a new E-M5 firmware update rolling out mid-December. It adds several more options to the menu regarding EVF info and “one exciting feature that is sure to please users. ;)

I don’t know yet what this feature is but my guess is that it is focus peaking! Or do you have another feature in your mind?


P.S.: Bernt sent me this: “Amateur Photographer, Dec 1 2012 issue reviews the E-PL5 and gives it a score of 83%. The OM-D E-M5 is no. 21 on PC World’s list of best products of 2012,
