I vote for a new dedicated OMD EM-5 forum
May 3, 2012

A camera with such amazing state-of-the-art technology and currently regarded as the pinnacle of micro digital camera evolution surely deserves its own forum.

It will also provide the next level of forum for the more aspirational m43 folk who can look forward to joining the OMD cognoscent one day and will be a base for the m43 elite who will surely flock to the the new OMD forum in fear of been associated with those with inferior equipment and capability.

Come on DPR you know it makes sense.

Why all the hate???

Is it eating away at you that much?

Where is the love?

Can't we all just get along?

I hope this is sarcasm 0_0... I haven't had caffeine yet.

When panasonic or oly release something equal or better, then what happens?

Yeah, not sure about a separate OM forum.

What I thought would be nice is one forum for technical details and one forum dedicated to the use of the 4/3 camera.

Patience.

Since the OMD is the first of a 'new line' of cameras from Olympus, as other versions are introduced they will need a separate forum.

Then we'd have a dozen new forums--one for each newly announced/released camera that excites folks. Just ignore the threads you don't want to read.

That the GH2 is inferior equipment compared to the E-M5???

Maybe a separate GH2 forum would be better.

Oh, sorry, we can't talk about next year's technology until this year's is considered obsolete. Let's bookmark this thread and post on it in a year and in two. It will be interesting.

You could call it Pro m4/3rds I guess... and add the high grade Panasonic body if it arrives?

I would also vote for a separate forum for users of GH2 who happen to also use the Lightroom 4.x software.
