Re: Wow, Oly wipes the floor with Panasonic!

Where did Panasonic go downhill?

The Olympus model policy is still strange: the midlle model has no flash but a tiltable screen, ther high end model has a flash but no tiltable screen. Seems a bit erratic and random. Still no camera with build-in view finder. Still only pseudo-rangefinder designs.

I don't see still such a big step forward. If the AF is effectively so much better than the GH2's AF remains to be seen.

To me the biggest news are the new primes. From the bodies I expected more real differentiation.

I never expected Panasonic to go downhill so fast with its models and Olympus taking the system in the right direction alone.

With bodies AND lenses!

I may think about staying with M4/3 and switching over to Olumpus.

What´s that noise?
