So it is possible and WR still will not suffer.

    Currently PC desktop do have connectors like the USB with Esata combo. So I do not see why this cannot be done for a camera. Just that the engineers need to think abit and be more adventurous.
    I really prefer for stuff to be built in and ergonomically moulded in a neat package. Those chimera setups where u plug in stuff here and there do not appeal to me.

    I stopped playing with lego when i was 12

    I'm pretty sure the OM-D is pretty good in low light as a system (ie. coupled with the fast primes in the m4/3 selection).
    Still at least 1 stop below K5 though based on experiences with my G3 ('like' 16mp sensor (though Oly always claim its unique to them)).

    Don't laugh at its base ISO o/p though. Its well known the weak AA filter and Oly JPEG processing produces wickedly sharp outputs.

    OMD? The EXIF says E-M5. And you think the Galaxy S2 can match that?

    Well, from my eyes they don't differ much. But seriously that horrendous shot could be a user error (45mm @ 1/100s). Not sure the 45mm is 35mm equivalent or before the X 2 crop factor.

    Please note too, that many good pros shy away from high ISO shots. Maybe there is something there for us to learn? I am still a newbie so please take whatever I said with a handful of salt.

    Before, equivalent = 90mm.

    wow, 90mm @ 1/100s! I normally go for 1.5 to 2 times of the focal length.

    Nothing to shout about.
    With Pentax SR you can go <1:1 if you hold your camera in the correct way

    i don't think its about the "pro vs newbie" dichotomy. its ultimately a matter of equipment available, artistic preference, choices made under different lighting conditions and PP workflow.

    if pros don't need / use high ISO, then why make FF? thats one of they key advantages of FF over APS-C: less noise at high ISO.

    Lol, I conceit, you guys are better. Don't let me stop you from buying ff, shoot with low shutter and high ISO.

    Now, let's get back to the subject; so far everyone wants better af on the new k3.

    Galaxy s2 got so good meh? IMHO the s2 output is not even up to scratch as Compared to iPhone pictures. Definitely not in he same league as the current crop of m4/3 cameras... Not even close!

    I can't even do half that on a rocking boat or on a moving object. You guys are amazing.

    doesn't work when u have to deal with motion blur. doesn't matter how robust SR is, or how steady you're holding your camera if your subject moves. in your case, just bump up iso for a faster shutter speed and spend some effort on PP if noise is a problem.

    I almost never go below 1/30.
    Anything lower, I use a tripod or keep the camera

    That has nothing to do with you, but with the rocking boat.

    The only way to overcome the resultant camera shake because of being on rocking boat or moving object is to follow the motion of the thing you're on... Don't think that's possible!
