    I am sure :-) But my new Romulan Intelligence sources tell me it's for still only. Makes sense, just like the Hassy.

    Of course, when they announce it, we'll see :-)

    Of course. They are shots taken with the OMD EM-5, OMD EM-1 and OMD EM-10.

    Given that, certainly an OMD EM-5II should be able to capture those similar shots right? Hardly 40 MP shots there. :-)

    Yes but you have one big problem with this logic- the sensor needs to reset. You are right- it would take a fraction of a second but that fraction isn't that small to freeze subjects. You need like 1/60+ at least to freeze a lot of subjects. Walking people on the streets we are talking about 1/80-125 at least for a decent freeze.

    And of course, you would most likely lose IBIS though I think that's an easy tradeoff to make for 40MP in those situations you want the detail. But it's the shutter here the problem.

    They would need a fast refresh electronic shutter for this. Maybe with some "skew." Anyhow, I heard it's for stills. I am sure there are "creative ways" to shoot for movement to be found though.

    Not lame, but rather a non sequitur I'd have thought.

    It is quite relevant to me and concerns your favorite brand.

    To be on a certain invisible waiting list on an unannounced camera from a luxury camera manufacturer cost me quite.

    43rumors now says (FT5) 40MP mode is for tripod shooting only. Not surprised.

    Surely that's easy?
    you ring up your local dealer and say "please can you put me on the waiting list for the FF Olympus F-M1"
    He says. "but there isn't an Olymous F-M1 and I don't have a waiting list". You say "please could you make one and put me At the top "

    Most normal dealers would just do as you ask (no skin off his nose) If the camera comes to pass then you get the first one, if not the list just languishes with other such lists on the dealer's computer.

    but maybe I'm missing your point?

    And thank you, that's very attentive

    Thank you guys and my apologies for my belated reply.
    Unfortunately my dad became ill and suffered from flu, but worse he fell and hit a bedpost and bruised his ribs.
    So I had to take care of him the last couple of days.
    But no worries - he's getting better now.

    Kind regards.
