Re: Your camera ideas
E-3/5: I use the front wheel for EV adjustment, and would also like to lock that function, so I do not accidentally change it when carrying the body by the grip in my right hand. The front wheel fits nicely under my index finger while shooting, and I like that, but is vulnerable while I am carrying the camera. If I do not constantly remind myself to pixel peep (I usually keep the screen turned in when I am in the field), I have left it one or more stops over exposed more times than I would like to admit. I have the rear wheel on A in A mode, and that rarely changes by itself, but the front wheel, while handy, often changes on me. PITA! Otherwise, the E-5 is a great body for field work, and I am also looking forward to evaluating my first E-M5, which is on pre-order at my local shop, due in any day now.
I would also really like to save the customization settings for any Oly body to the SD card or to a computer file, not only for backup and restoration, but to copy to another body. With scores of settings, I find it difficult to exactly sync the settings on my two (or more in the future?) bodies, to make them operate identically. I am old, and have trouble switching bodies if they do not operate identically, except when I purposely want them to be different for a particular shoot. That capability would help in both cases. I expressed this to an Oly rep once, and he was both surprised at the request and appreciated its importance to some shooters. He promised to pass it along, but no evidence of its incorporation so far....
