Pen Pro, I don’t think so!

Many times in the last few days I have seen reference to the Pen Pro. Are all the people who use this terminology living on a different planet. A pro is someone who takes pictures to earn a living. I saw the bank of pro photographers at Wimbledon today and without exception they are Canikon prime big lens users and if you look at the same bank of people in 5years I would put money on it being the same. Does anybody really believe that in 5 years time in the middle of the pack will be an EP7Pro user. Surely Oly would be much better placed trying to appeal to the E5/E5* E6* clan who aspire to be one of those Wimbledon photographers and all they ask for is the best value for money/quality equipment within their price range. If Oly lose those people they can forget about any aspiration to a Pro Pen however daft an idea it is in the first place.
