I've not been here for ages. Was there really anyone saying 4/3rds was not a discontinued system?
That's nuts!
However, the good news is a camera is coming that can use the lenses! And since the lenses are excellent. and I have a bag full of the things, that's brilliant!
Anyone sulking because there is no E7 with an OM-D sensor must have been living on a different planet these last five years.

A couple of months ago people who were saying that Olympus 4/3 is discontinued system were called trolls. Now Olympus seems to be a biggest troll

hehe well there were actually quite a few indications from Olympus themselves that 4/3's would be no more. . .it's just they would word it in a nice and friendly corporate way and some people here couldn't interpret that message well and or didn't believe it even as it was coming straight from the horses mouth. They weren't just gonna come out and say the 4/3 system is no more in literal terms, instead they ignore the system and dance around the questions while focusing on the money making m4/3's - that's about as clear of a message for many though as for most of us actions speak louder than words which is why you'll see quite a few people who have moved on but still hang around because they still have some lenses and shoot with olympus occassionaly.

It's a weird vibe in here, the last remaining fans are the most die-hard and thus seem to always be on edge/defensive - seem to turn a blind eye towards anything else out there, questioning the obvious as if it's some kind of surprise that everyone else has surpassed 4/3's by leaps and bounds a long time ago - impossible! They don't have SHG lenses!
