This style of camera captures the youth era of a lot of photographers. A time that one might say was a peak of still photography.


I agree and think this is key odl. Though I'm not a Babyboomer, rather on the tail end of Gen-X, I have to say when I saw the OM-D in person the first time an emotional memory of using my dad's OM-1 as a child took over and I was immediately drawn to it. They nailed it on the look (in silver), but the size is too small for the latest run of "use for pro" claims in my opinion. It's smaller than the E-P(1,2,3) which is weird. It's like holding my E-PL3. And that 12-50 lens ring that toggles between traditional zoom and point and shoot zoom screams consumer.

It's a terrific retro camera for pro's like my dad and I could see it develop into a hip trend for fixie riding hipsters straight out of Portlandia. haha!
