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

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?
