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

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.

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?

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.

Patience is something that many in this world do not have. It is the desire for instant gratification at almost any cost, what is best for me is truly what matters. People change their camera gear, that has been going on for well over a century, nothing new there. The part that seems odd, out of place and an attraction to other like minded users is the need to post that they are moving to another system and spell out the reasons why they feel they were wronged and thus are moving on. Each of us makes decisions each and every day, and like it or not, we are the ones that own those decisions and thus are accountable for them. If someone wants to make a change, that is their choice, I do not need to know why if within that why is the blaming of others. What I like, what I feel I require is of little or no consequence nor care to another, the same works in return.

Your quote from no less than Aristotle is spot on, thank you for sharing that one.

Somewhere around here I have two cents...they must be in one of the camera bags.
