The people who "re-invent" classic designs usually have nothing to connect them with the original designs, mostly because they're too young to have been around at the time they were new. They're more interested in the outside than the inside, so they don't make "photographers' cameras", but "fashion statements".

My Fuji X100 and the images it produces clearly demonstrate the invalidity of your over-generalisation, as does what I've seen so far of the Olympus OMD in the hands of others that I'm following with interest.

My X100 is certainly no fashion toy, nor I suspect is the weather-sealed OMD.
