Next OMD Olympus a hybrid camera: Smart Move or Not?
Aug 5, 2013

It's almost official, the next OMD will the long-awaited pro camera that can use either the m 43 or original 4 3 lenses.

I know this will be nice for some of us that still have 4 3 lenses, but I'm still thinking it would be smarter to just focus on increasing the user base of m 43 so that we have more incentive for 3rd party lens manufacturers to make lenses for us. Sure, it will be nice to have the mighty 12-60mm Zuiko zoom a viable option again, but wouldn't it be better just to develop one for m43 and have say Sigma put out an f1.8 zoom for m43?  This seems like it might be a white elephant, but I guess it depends on how it is implemented.
