Olympus imaging is hardly a failure

There are those people that throw in the towel either from despair, hopelessness, depression and those companies that give up to cut their loses that choose not to succeed.

Many feel Olympus did that with the OM system and is now doing it again with Four Thirds.

If the company shows a lack of confidence in their own products than how much confidence will their consumers have?

'When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at
his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it.
Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two,
and I know it was not that blow that did it,
but all that had gone before.'

Stay Well,

I bought my OM-1 in 1973, and the last OM-3Ti came of the assembly line almost thirty years later. That is hardly a failure or a premature abandonment. We must credit that camera with fundamentally transforming the slr type of camera,

With dslrs, Olympus has, again, introduced fundamental changes to really effective dustbusters, better weather sealing -again- smaller cameras- and Live View. Commercial realities have forced them to place most of their resources with another industry-shaking innovation, true EVIL cameras.

Ricoh, Konica, Yashica, Contax, Kodak, Minolta and other smaller brands did, indeed, give up. Olympus coninues to put up a pretty impressive fight to retain a place in serious photography.

Photography is a small voice, at best, but sometimes one photograph, or a group of them, can lure our sense of awareness.
