I keep thinking of all these poor saps who are cutting their line and running into the hands of Canikon. BAD move, IMHO.

Well there are still a few Pure DSLR users here and a few who will be running/ have run to Canikon.

Yes, we were all saddened by the lack of the hoped-for E-7... but Olympus did not abandon us. I haven't tried the EM-1 yet, but it does work, and work well, with 4/3 lenses.. and the next generation will likely be seamless.

Photography is changing in MAJOR ways right now. It's almost like the early days when film was first getting stomped on by digital, and hold-outs (like me) said, "digital will never be as good as film.." well, we know what happened there.

Photography always changes.

Now it's the end of the DSLR... the mirror is soon to be a relic. Why, why, why would you dump your Oly gear and buy into another DSLR system?

To quote Mark Twain

‘The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated'

I don't think you have been reading the camera sales figures that have come out lately mirror less camera sales are in decline after the initial take up. Strangely Nikon and Canon are holding there own.

Olympus and m4/3 seem to be the cutting edge of ILCs... rave reviews. We've got great lenses and a path forward.

Just my 2 cents.
