Whether or not he sees a market for an upscale mini rangefinder, they do. And Olympus created M43, so they do know something about the market. For sure, they know more than C/N do about compact, high performance cameras.

The EP5 is not for me, I want the OMD-Pro that will AF my ZD glass quickly, and the Pen sized body just doesn't handle well with those larger lenses. But that doesn't mean that many people won't want the very compact and discreet form factor.

I particularly like the 1/8000 shutter speed and the larger VF.

Others will want the 5 axis IBIS - it really does work well, and isn't found in the lesser Pens.

And I can see the wi-fi option as being particularly attractive. I wouldn't mind having it... how many times have I gotten the 'no card' message when I forgot to put the card back in?

I don't like it enough to buy one at that price, but I love it for what it says about the OMD-Pro.
