4/3 is all about the optics
In reply to goblin, Aug 14, 2013

I haven't posted on this forum for ages, but I own an E-5 and some fine lenses for it so I consider myself entitled to participate in this important discussion.

What makes the 4/3 system special is its optics, much less so its cameras. In fact, ZD lenses are designed differently from their m.Zuiko siblings and deserve a shrine of their own on DPReview even if the bodies which support them are now sadly outdated. Moreover, If Olympus is indeed to release a camera which will support both lens families equally well, it is quite reasonable to predict a new surge of interest in 4/3 lenses among the 1041 populace and thus a recovery at 1022.

This scheme would make sure 1022 is kept relatively safe from trolling as optics don't make a very attractive substrate for such infections. Besides, I imagine most of the m4/3 users who might be interested in 4/3 lenses are civilized and experienced.
