I was right in not being optimistic

Even if DPR have mixed up stuff in their reports today (no wonder with all they have had to do), I will say for myself that my pessimism was rectified. The new Pen has got a touch screen, hurrah! Very important for an old guy who have learned not to touch the glass on a camera. The mobile phone guys are taking over.

I still have to be patient. Amalric ( http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1041&message=42507007 ) says he will give Olympus till spring, before he acts. Me too, the dark times in Norway during winter is not my busiest photo times anyway. But watching Olys camera body philosophy, I guess they will not give me dials for ISO and exposure compensation on top of the body. And somehow they don't want to go RF design way all the way.

So I guess I have to stay with my E-PL2 for a while longer, and replace the VF2 that I just lost. And tape it to the camera.
