Tired of Olympus retro...
May 4, 2013

I note yet another retro-looking pen model seems to be on the way from Olympus.  While I use and enjoy mFT (OMD 12, 12-50, 45, 60macro, 75) and even find that some FT lenses work pretty well (panaleica 25, 70-300, 7-14), there is no way that it could ever replace my FT bodies.  The controls are just too small and most of the lenses are not weatherproof.  And, in the end, zooms really are more generally useful for most of the shooting that I do

it has been  three years since Olympus has actually produced anything new for FT.   We need some new bodies, not more retro jewelry.

Photography is a small voice, at best, but sometimes one photograph, or a group of them, can lure our sense of awareness.
