Re: Easy: Olympus will go FF as well. M43 + FF co-exist PERFECTLY

I mean you cannot expect people to buy a brand new FF and then go look for 20 year old lenses to use their camera.

I get you point.... but isn't this exactly what Leica users do?

And they don't seem to mind paying plenty for the privilege of using 20, 30, and 40 year old lenses....

I think a high end, weather sealed, digital camera with an OM mount could exist, but as a specialty market item.

There are a few OM lenses that are truly spectacular, and Olympus could refresh them with minor redesigns using newer coatings.

Personally, I wouldn't be interested in buying into a FF OM system, but there probably are many others who would.
