Would you be interested in a "Tough" M43 compact?
Apr 5, 2013

Hi All

Do you think there would be a demand for a "tough series" compact with a 43 sensor and maybe a quality fixed lens between 12 to 17mm?

(Zooms are nice, but it would be much harder to remain compact and tough - so maybe fixed lens is more sensible in this category?)

I'd love to have something like this with waterproofing (1 metre depth is enough for me) and impact resistance.

While I'd love it to have a top end sensor as found in the OM-D or GH3, it may be more sensible to accept an older generation 43 sensor to reduce the price.

Would it be a mistake for Olympasonic to bring something like this to market?
