Re: How is it "positively cheap"

Now you're getting my point it's not just the sensor size that makes a true pro camera. E-x are semi-pro or as I call them pro-am cameras. I think after the E-3 it would have been good for Oly to produce an all out pro camera with all the knobs and buttons etc...Having handled one I can understand why pros use them. They are just to big for me to carry around as I'm an amateur's amateur.

Going back just a few years, there were high expectations of a "Tweener"  - a camera that would encapsulate the Oly mantra of a Pro built, high performance, compact body, with full WR.  Perhaps they dithered and finally decided the market wasn't big enough for that move, even among semi-pro enthusiasts, so instead focussed fully on the m4/3 line.

If Oly had taken that step I wonder how different things might be today....?
