    The best mirrorless from what standpoint? It’s a pretty bold statement not backed up by any evidence. And I do own one.

    A warning to Pen F owners: if you haven’t already upgraded to version 2.0 of the camera’s firmware, DON’T DO IT. Some Pen F cameras have severe issues with version 2.0, building up heat to the point the camera is shutting down and stops working. I spoke to Olympus customer care on the phone and they have confirmed issues with version 2.0 to me and recommended I stay on version 1.1.

        That’s why I wrote “some Pen F cameras”, not all. Mine was affected, so were many others. Olympus confirmed the issue to me on the phone and recommended staying on 1.1 if you own a Pen F. I am merely passing on the recommendation I got from Olympus.

          See, if Olympus made that recommendation without removing the new firmware from their update page it would be really bad. A company that knows of an issue, and tells some people not to update, but still has an update out that can damage your camera…. just wow.

            That’s why I’m putting this information out on places like this. A camera heating up to the extend that it shuts down is bad and in my opinion, can leave the electronics damaged or deteriorated permanently even after Olympus decides to issue a later fix via firmware.
