OM-D Should Have Come out 2 Years Ago
Jan 17, 2012

I think OM-D will be a nice camera, good addition to micro 4 3rds, a weatherproof GX1 with IBIS. But having said that, it is another case of Olympus being a day late and a dollar short. Give or take some bells and whistles, there seems to be nothing in OM-D that could not have been done two years ago. Why so long?

What is their market niche? Sony is consumer electronics, users can be assured of getting the latest bells and whistles. Panasonic is clearly video, no one does it quite like them in a neat package like the GH2. Penetax is the outdoors, rugged system for those who value craftsmanship in their equipment. CaNikon, well no need to go into detail on their brand loyal fans. Olympus????
