4) Finally, in summation, to paraphrase the Goldwater campaign (Goldwater? Who's that? Bring your grandfather some daisies and ask him) In your heart you know that this is the classical example of an in-between camera. If you own an em-5, hang on to your money for the next iteration of the *small* em6 or whatever. If you own a bunch of 43 lenses, and had given up hope, now's the time not to buy the EM1, but to unload those 43 lenses on the next sucker. This is the prototypical example of the "Pump and dump" so often done in the stock market with tiny companies.

I will hold on, but I don't understand your keeness that everyone else does too. I think the EM-1 will be very popular.

Finally, getting at my motivations.

I'm annoyed Olympus promotes this as the second coming, when it's not. It's just an in-between camera (although the em5 in 2012 does qualify for that characterization).
