Thanks, but no need to change it just for me. That yellow-ish tint of the background did hit the white balance nerve though. I guess I'm programmed to seeing white backgrounds in the typical product shot from the manufacturer's marketing department or similar from reviews. As a side note, I did try auto-WB on one of the previous pics which did whiten the background, and the camera still looked ok too.

So, the E-M5 is near enough the same size as an E-P3 if you chip the VF hump off. Sounds a fair comparison and I look forward to seeing the next progression of the E-P_ series which will hopefully offer the same without that hump.

Hi folks,

The Lumix G Micro 4/3 LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25mm f/1.4 ASPH, on my wishlist but deferred until funds are more plentiful, has recently been reviewed on a 16 MP body, albeit the GX1 as opposed to the E-M5. A welcome development to see PhotoZone using the more demanding sensor for m4/3rds reviews - you can read all about the results here. 8)
