Good news #1: There’s a firmware update available for the OM-D that’s supposed to correct the sleep lockup problem.
Good news #2: It appears that there are huge discounts on the Pansonic GX1, available here from Amazon in kit form for $492 (with the 14-42) and body only for $395. That’s cheaper than a Pen Mini in most parts of the world…and as much as I like the Pen Mini, the GX1 is a much more full-featured camera – and a no-brainer at this price.
Bad news: 43rumors.com has jacked my image without permission to use as their post centerpiece, which is how I found out about the firmware update. You can see the original here. Please do me a favor and leave a comment of support under my comment on their fb page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/43rumors/154271467964575) or on the original post. Thanks! MT
