The OM-D is winning back some "cred"

Exact..Very low volume ..In fact i dont see any dealer wanting to stock a new 4/3 camera

The loss of Olympus dealers and display shelf-space seems to have finally passed its nadir, and I've noticed not only increases in the number of Pen bodies and mft lenses on display, but also the occasional presence of an E-5 and a few FT lenses, sitting like parents at the back of the array. And this is with dealers who have been so busy filling special orders that they are still waiting for actual demo/display models of the OM-D.

The last few very sensible and attractive Olympus products and upgrades (the ZX-1, the third Pen iteration, the OM-D, even the impressive new tough camera) provide a real opportunity to win back dealers who were losing faith in Olympus, and, if Oly works as hard on marketing as it has on R&D, even many of those it had lost.

I think that a a high end micro 4/3 camera that can focus 4/3 lenses is the winning product going forward

You may well be right in the long run, but I suspect that we will see a final OVF dslr at Photokina.

Photography is a small voice, at best, but sometimes one photograph, or a group of them, can lure our sense of awareness.
