M43 Onion OM-D Field of Dreams

My trusted sources have now confirmed something very deep and moving. The quiet whirring noise made by the EM5 is actually more than the 5 Axis IBIS doing its thing. If you listen carefully, you can (if your heart lets you) hear the words, "If you build it, he will come." Photographers who started in the film days, taking pictures with their Dad or Mom, made photographs using OMs and other rangefinder/small SLR cameras. A particular Oly engineer, Toshi, heard the calls, and worked to build the first digital OM. He built it up, and then he came -- Hot-Shoeless Joe Jackson.

Hot-Shoeless Joe wanted to design cameras for the serious photographer in mind, but kept insisting that tiny digigams were the only way forward. These were tiny cameras with small sensors and no hot shoe. Of course Oly failed in most of their ventures with small digicams, and Hot-Shoeless was found guilt of corruption and fraud. But alas, Hot-Shoeless apologized and made peace with his misdeeds, and encouraged Toshi to design the OM-D in a way that would honor the legacy of the OM series.
