If the menus on the OMD5 mark II is your idea of limited menus, I am sorry for 
you and I'll sell you mine.. And I'm not referring to braying online jackasses 
like TN, but experienced photographers and skilled writers like Thom Hogan and 
Kirk Tuck and Mike Johnston. 


And I have a prejudice coming from Nikon, whose menus are a fine example of 
simplicity written by a native english speaker. Never seen a canon menu.

Those 'credible reviewers' mostly have a prejudice coming from Canon/Nikon, 
is my impression. If it is not like they're used to, it is difficult so 
gets bashed. 

I use Sony next to Olympus and I don't think the menu system is better then 
Olympus. When I had a Canon (5d and 6d), I wasn't impressed either. Helping 
other photographers has left me in the dark with the Nikon menu as well. 
And that said, Olympus offers great customization, more then average I 
think. Could it be that part of the fuss is people not used to this complex 
level of settings and thus hiding their ignorance behind a sharp opinion? 

On the sunny side, the modern Olympus and Sony's have options to define and 
access a limited menu for your most used settings. I think that is the best 
you can expect apart from a ISO norm for menu's (and I wish my current 
camera's have it ;-).
