    After all, apart from the sensor (and price) the EM1X and GFX100s share the same dimensions ...

    Yup Bart, when you are right, you are right!

    • So I am saving $3k by not buying an MFT camera. Thank you Olympus.

    • I also don't have to buy a new Sony camera for more than $4k. Sony is basically giving me one for free with the firmware updates version 5.0 and 6.0 this Spring and Summer. Thank you Sony.

    • I already saved close to $3k by buying GFX lenses on discount. Thank you Fuji.

    So I am basically ready for the 100S - but will not preorder. I first want to see what Fujifilm comes up with. Also, I am having so much fun with my 50S. I don't think that will wear out anytime soon.

    The derogatory German term for this thought process is "Milchmädchenrechnung". In this day in age it surely would be considered sexist as well and I better apologize for it. Sorry. However, there are no Michmädchen around these days. IIRC they last were seen in the 1950s.

    BTW my E-M1.2 still works just fine. Here is proof.



    Olympus E-M1MarkII + M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 40-150mm f2.8 PRO @ ISO 200, FOCAL LENGTH 40.0 mm, APERTURE f/5.6, EXPOSURE TIME 0.0125s (1/80).

    Oh the river down there, the Rio Grande, is about 1000 feet below the camera that took that image..

    Although I am not in that medium format game anymore Olympus with that EM1X also saved me €3000.-

    I don't see what I cannot do with the EM1.2 and the lenses I already have.

    Now these €3000.-can stay either saved or invested in a FF mirrorless system of choice - I am in no hurry at all, so I can choose from Nikon, Sony, Panasonic and maybe even Canon - who knows ....

    Not sure though how Olympus thinks that they will survive the next 2-3 years with that strategy.

    I like your reasoning here, K-H The Fuji sales were just amazing.
    Presumably my dealer miscalculated its price, but I bought this brand new GF23/4 for only € 1699. That's a whopping € 1100 discount on the lens. Thank you very much dealer

    But speaking of naive. What about "Frau Antje" (*1961) ? She's still among us, isn't she ?

    Current US list price for GF23: $2599.00, I paid discount: $1979.95.

    Sure... as long as it’s a static subject/scene. The reality is that once motion happens and you need to raise the ISO it doesn’t matter that a person can handhold at 1/6th of a second when the subject is a blurry mess of things. It’s great when IBIS smooths things out for us but it’s also a case by case situation. Larger sensors generally provide less noise in poorer light. There’s a place for both IMO.

    Olympus E-M1X versus the E-M1 II, Panasonic G9, Fujifilm X-T3 and Nikon D500
    https://www.dpreview.com/articles/50...and-nikon-d500

    At this time I see no reason to abandon my E-M1 II.
    It was my first mirrorless camera without any focus hunting issues to speak of.
    Unfortunately its sensor readout time of 1/60 s is not fast enough to avoid rolling shutter artifacts when shooting Hummingbirds in Flight (HIFs) with its silent electronic shutter.

    For HIFs the Sony A9 with 1/160 s sensor readout time avoids rolling electronic shutter artifacts, so continues to be my preferred camera for HIFs.
    With best regards, K-H.

    Did not want to open a new thread, so I thought it might be appropriate to post this info here:

    This is a pretty good and honest review of the EM1.2 (yes, not the EM1X, just the EM1.2) and the pro photographer Ian Farrell comes to really like this camera and some of the PRO lenses.

    https://www.olympus-imagespace.co.uk...g-to-know-you/

    After not finding any other mirrorless system till now that would really allow me to move on from Olympus Em1.2 and Pro lenses this view assures me once more to stay calm and continue using what I already own without getting again cought up in the trap of buying/using a completely new system.

    And there is great hope for an EM1.3 sometime in 2020

    I believe I read an interview not long ago that olympus was slated to possibly release two more cameras this year. I’m think one may be an EM5m3 and who knows about the other...

    Well Peter and Tre.

    Whatever cameras Olympus comes up with, my interest or lack thereof will depend primarily on significantly (minimum of 3x) improved sensor readout times.

    E-M5.3 is okay for m43 lenses, however for 43 lenses I need E-M1.3.

    The Sony A9 with FW 5.0 has set such an astoundingly high bar.
    Focusing speed and tracking are unreal.
    And FW 6.0 with Eye-AF for animals will be released shortly.

    Then there will be the Fuji 100S.

    From an email I got from B&H, quote: "
    Heads Up! Olympus Brings Firmware V3.0 to E-M1 Mark II and V1.1 to E-M1X

    Hello,

    Tons of improvements are coming to your Olympus camera in the latest firmware update. The OM-D E-M1 Mark II gets a very significant update to Version 3.0 while the flagship OM-D E-M1X gets a nice boost up to Version 1.1. Also, the Olympus Workspace software is updated to add a few useful functions and features to your workflow.

    For the E-M1 Mark II, this update brings substantial improvements to autofocus. It also adds group 25-point to AF Target, C-AF Center Priority, and plenty of other modes for optimizing your settings perfectly for your subject. Autofocus can now work down to -6EV with an f/1.2 lens for low-light shooting. Also, operation is enhanced with a new ISO L100 setting and Detail Priority setting, an anti-flicker mode, OM-Log400, and tons more. The E-M1X doesn’t receive quite as much, but will support the latest features in Olympus Workspace after updating to Version 1.1.

    The Olympus Workspace Image Editing Software provides a few nice new abilities for editing in Version 1.1. These include focus stacking for compositing images shot with Focus Bracketing, a Lighten/Darken Composite that provides a similar effect to the Live Composite mode, a USB RAW Data Edit for using the TruePic VIII processor of a connected camera to speed up editing. Please check out the Olympus Support Page to download these updates for yourself.

    View Support Page https://www.getolympus.com/us/en/software

    Thank you for choosing B&H.

    Firmware upgrade brings features from Olympus's E-M1X to the E-M1 Mark II
    Published Jun 19, 2019 | dpreview staff
    https://www.dpreview.com/news/529748...e-e-m1-mark-ii, quote: "

    Press Release
    OLYMPUS ANNOUNCES FIRMWARE UPGRADES ENHANCING AUTOFOCUS PERFORMANCE AND IMAGE QUALITY

    Version 3.0 for the OM-D® E-M1 Mark II, Version 1.1 for the OM-D E-M1X and Version 1.1 for Olympus® Workspace
    CENTER VALLEY, Pa., June 19, 2019 – Olympus is pleased to announce availability of the latest firmware upgrade for two interchangeable lens cameras, Version 3.0 for the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II and Version 1.1 for the Olympus OM-D E-M1X. Additionally, Firmware Version 1.1 is now available for Olympus Workspace. OM-D E-M1 Mark II firmware Version 3.0 adds high-precision autofocus (AF) performance and the high image quality currently available on Olympus’ newest OM-D, the E-M1X. Specifically designed for the professional models in the OM-D series, the OM-D E-M1 Mark II and OM-D E-M1X, this new firmware provides feature enhancements for photographers who require portability and smooth operation of the camera when shooting.
    OM-D E-M1 Mark II Firmware Version 3.0: Main Features
    Advanced AF Performance
    This upgrade utilizes the OM-D E-M1X algorithm, which was developed based on the shooting needs of the professional photographer. With the goal of achieving performance that responds to demanding shooting conditions, such as fast movement in sports, etc., C-AF Center Priority delivers high-precision tracking of moving subjects and sudden subject movement. AF precision for still subjects when using S-AF is improved for various subjects compared to OM-D E-M1 Mark II firmware Version 2.3. Active use of information from the On-chip Phase Detection AF sensor also improves AF performance while shooting video.
    Newest AutoFocus Features
    Group 25-point has been added to AF Target, and is effective for photographing birds and other small subjects. C-AF Center Priority is now available, and repeatedly autofocuses with priority on the center point in Group 5-point, Group 9-point, and Group 25-point. If AF is not possible in the center point, the peripheral points in the group area assists, which is effective for subjects that move around quickly. In addition, C-AF+MF1 is included which allows users to instantly switch to MF by turning the focus ring while in C-AF for fine tuning the focus.
    Low Light Limit Update
    The AF low light limit when an f/1.2 lens is attached is -6.0 EV (ISO 100 equivalent for S-AF), enabling high precision focusing in both dark scenes and for low-contrast subjects.
    Improved Image Quality
    Low ISO Processing (Detail Priority) has been added for higher resolution when shooting at low ISO sensitivity[1], making it possible to reduce noise while shooting with low ISO settings. Compared with OM-D E-M1 Mark II firmware Version 2.3, noise that occurs when shooting at high ISO sensitivity is improved approximately 1/3 of a step.
    Support for New Functions in Olympus Workspace
    USB RAW Data Edit[2] is now supported for much faster RAW processing in Olympus Workspace by connecting the camera to a computer to use the power of the OM-D E-M1 Mark II TruePic™ VIII image processor.
    Enhanced Operability

    • Anti-flicker shooting added to prevent unstable exposure, particularly when sequential shooting indoors.
    • OM-Log400 movie-exclusive picture mode added, allowing the user to shoot movies without loss of details in shadows or highlight blowouts, delivery greater freedom over video creativity through color grading.
    • Frame Rate Priority added to Live View Boost/On2 display, displaying images at a comfortable brightness, even in especially dark locations, such as under a starlit sky without lowering the frame rate.
    • From 3 to 15 shots can be selected in Focus Stacking and guide lines have been added to the shooting area
    • Quick image selection added
    • Setting changes and playback display while writing to card now possible, facilitating quick operation.
    • Instant Film added to Art Filter
    • ISO L100 (ISO 100 equivalent) added

    Re: E-M1, E-M5, E-M5.2, etc. ... Peculiarities

    I've just installed Firmware Version 3.0 for my OM-D E-M1 Mark II ….

    …. and now there IS something Peculiar AND VERY ANNOYING !

    If a chose to shoot using one SD card only - "No Card" and the number of whichever card slot is empty
    appears near the top of the viewfinder and/or rear screen.
    It disappears only with a half press of the shutter button, but then re-appears as soon as my finger is removed.

    Is there a new user manual for FW 3.0 of the E-M1 mark II? TIA.
    Or do I simply refer to the E-M1X user manual?
    With best regards, K-H.

    Many thanks Bart! WOW! Incredible!
    How do you find those kind of things?

    Yup, that’s it. Quoting from your link: “

    • *1 Because new functions have been added to the E-M1 Mark II with firmware version 2.0 and 3.0, the instruction manual has been revised accordingly.
      For instructions regarding the latest firmware version 3.0, refer to the E-M1 Mark II (Ver 3.0) instruction manual.
      For instructions regarding movies, refer to the Movie Guide.
    • *2 Because new functions have been added to the E-M1 with firmware version 2.0 and 4.0, the instruction manual has been revised accordingly.
      For instructions regarding the latest firmware version 4.0, refer to the E-M1 (Ver 4.0) instruction manual.
    • *3 Because new functions have been added to the E-M5 Mark II with firmware version 2.0 and 4.0, the instruction manual has been revised accordingly.
      For instructions regarding the latest firmware version 4.0, refer to the E-M5 Mark II (Ver 4.0) instruction manual.
    • *4 Because new functions have been added to the E-M10 Mark III with firmware version 1.1, the instruction manual has been revised accordingly.
      For instructions regarding the latest firmware version 1.1, refer to the E-M10 Mark III (Ver 1.1) instruction manual.
    • *5 Because new functions have been added to the PEN-F with firmware version 3.0, the instruction manual has been revised accordingly.
      For instructions regarding the latest firmware version 3.0, refer to the PEN-F (Ver 3.0) instruction manual”


    Indeed, one can download all manual versions for all their OM-D cameras, including for the ones I have, namely E-M1, E-M1.2, E-M5, E-M5.2, and even for my E-P2.

    I will get the latest versions after I have updated all my cameras accordingly.

    I have updated the E-M1.2 to Firmware version 3.0 - no issues so far. I have also updated the Firmware of my 2 lenses - 40-150/2.8 Pro, 300/4 Pro - that can be used with their Teleconverters 1.4x and the new 2x. Still have to order the 2x TC though. Then the MFT TCs will match the FT TCs I got, so both the 400/4 Pro and the 300/2.8 SHG can reach the 135 film equivalent of 1200mm.

    It will be interesting to find out if my 4 FT lenses, including my 3 tunas, will benefit from better, i.e. more consistent AF, when used on the E-M1.2.

    Thanks again Bart! Much appreciated!
