Re: The only thing unrealistic might be the price...

I suppose addition of ports could cost a lot since we also want full weather sealing. I'd like to see dual card slots, 3.5mm mic, and headphones out for real video work. I don't think Olympus would be smart to price too near full frame offerings though.

I know Olympus would like to believe that professionals are willing to pay the price for professional cameras, but that's delusional for a company who has all but killed off their professional users through lack of product support, development, and communication. If Olympus thinks that an E-7 is continued support and commitment to 4/3rds, I'd counter that they haven't taken the pulse of the corpse lying in front of them which was their professional following. Maybe that's a little bleak, but if Olympus wants to appeal to professionals, then they are doing a great job of hiding it.

What if the hokey pokey really is what it's all about?
