I actually find “some” of the Olympus and E-M5 in particular zealots so irksome that I have changed my mind about the vote to split the forum.

Jim,

I think you're confusing disciples of the E-M5 with Olympus fanbois, and there's a big difference. I'll be the first to acknowledge that some have become 'over-enthusiastic' about the E-M5, but I'd also bet that 90% of those zealots also use Panasonic lenses. So these people aren't really fanbois; they're in love with a particular camera, not a particular brand.

In honesty, the biggest group of true fanbois are the ones for Panasonic (e.g., http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3361681#forum-post-50589111). I don't think I've ever read a post from someone who exclusively uses Olympus gear, but the opposite certainly isn't true. One of them has even contributed to this thread.

PS I generally hate cats and pictures of cats, but that is one dang good photo!
