Is anybody also NOT waiting for the next Oly 43rds body?
Nov 7, 2012

OK, I know the title is provocative, but here is my perspective. In line with recent posts I have switched to Panasonic m43rds cameras. Many reasons, e.g. size, video capabilities, but also the neglect of Oly towards their regular 43rds line up.

Here is my take - all purely speculation - why I am not waiting for the next Oly 43rds body:

  • I don't think there will be another regular 43rds model apart from an overpriced and oversized flagship model.
  • If there will be a m43rds model that will focus 43rds lenses fast, it will be massively expensive as it will be their new top tier m43rds model. And perhaps you even have to pay another couple of hundreds for a decent grip.

Don't get me wrong, I am not angry at Oly, rather disappointed. Still love my e510 and E1, but unfortunately, Oly seems to be focused on non-regular-43rds at the moment and I doubt it will ever change. No matter how many posts on 1022 will be complaining about it.

Sorry to be that negative, but to me it seems Oly has left 1022 territory for good.

Cheers,

Pablo
