Re: Actually, Olympus has been surprisingly candid:


I have the E-3 and 7D, so I monitor news about the E-7 and 7DII and also D400. It is interesting that in each forum many say the future is mirrorless and full frame with no room for anything I want. I expect at least one company to prove them wrong.


Well, Dan, I totally agree.

I've used big Canon cameras for sport for a few years as Olympus was useless for e.g. running.

Mirrorless is worse. I have two Panasonic G1s which I use for bike touring, fine for that, and a Nex-7 system which is also hopeless for anything moving. A great camera otherwise.

I still have my E3 and several lenses here in my holiday house in Spain. I love everything about it except the continuous af. The single af is even better than it for action!

If Olympus could put the sensor from the OMD in the E3 body with really good af they would have a cracking camera.
