Not to mention the fact that we're not sure about how it will be repaired - they've just learned about the problem - I want a permanent repair - not the same inferior plastic that might be the problem.........

I'm feeling left out, I can't find any defects on mine (and yet it still seems to be working OK ) Wink

I'm with you, Brian. So far, no sign of a defect. I can live with that - it's a great camera and a lot of fun to use.

Rather late answer Paul, but....yes (for the UK). You had to apply via the Panasonic website, and they had a list of items, all of which were limited to the first 50 applicants.

My camera says it wants to enjoy Christmas before it lets anyone attack it. Smile

(Ideal wet weather test conditions at the moment. Tongue)

I was looking through my 2012 Hawk Conservancy file today and found I had a couple of images of a Lanner Falcon in much the same pose (but in totally different light, one mid summer, the other a week ago in Winter light and at different distance, the 5Dmk2 shot being much closer)

one shot using my canon 5Dmk2 + 70-300 LIS at 300mm with f5.6, ISO 400 for 1/1250th
and the other with the EM5 with oly 75-300 at 200mm (400 FF equiv) with f7.1, ISO800 for 1/800th sec

Both are cropped to around the same extent (about 1200 - 1400 pixels on the longest side, then resized for here)

Whilst to my eye its clear the 5Dmk2 + 75-300LIS has done the better job I don't think that the EM5 has fallen too far short (particularly considering the different light).

I look forward to trying to repeat this shot with the EM5 next Summer

I agree, there's not much to choose between the two shots, technically, as far as I can tell, apart from the fact that the falcon's wing tip is more blurred in the E-M5 shot, there doesn't seem to be a great deal to choose between them. The greater degree of motion blur is likely just down to the slower shutter speed. The little Olympus isn't too shabby, is it?
