Where did all the Olympi go?
Jul 2, 2011

Quite some years ago I bought a e510. Mainly because of its size, inbody IS, anti-dust functionality and relatively good IQ. Ofcourse I knew that at many levels it was outperformed by the big boys in the gym, but the combo size and good enough quality, with the forsight of new e6/7/8xx to come + delicious lenses was enough to keep me.

But when I look now, I see Olympus has abandoned the eXXX series completely it seems... the lens prices have gone through the roof and I would need to buy the e5 if i want anything else.

It is the ILC way or the highway is the clear message from Olympus.

So the eBay way it will be for my e510 and lenses onfortunately.

I understand Olympus' decission though, but i feel a bit cheated out of a long lasting relationship with my camera. Oh well
