I'm welded to Oly for bodies as I like the way they work and can be configured. Nice and small system and works well enough for me (E-PL5 and some lenses).

And that loyalty despite the regular 3 monthy rumours of Olympus's demise that have popped up for the last 10 years.

I would not weld myself to brand. I am quite sure that Olympus can't survive as an independent camera manufacturer. Within 10 years we'll Olympus' camera division to merge with a larger competitor, however, the brand name will stay.

Roger Cicala just posted a lengthy opinion piece saying, amongst other things, that he expected the demise of m43.

That's one good reason to buy a complete system now and keep using it until hopelessly outdated by performance or whatever, or it dies and no repairs can be done.

If in the meantime Olympus dies (as predicted regularly over and over for 10 years) then when I need something new I will consider what is available in whatever brand makes the system that I like. No shedding tears, just move on.

Maybe in future someone will make an M4/3 sized package that contains a full frame sensor and has reasonable size and weight lenses and with a global shutter, then I would be very very interested.

Regards...... Guy

Like the E-PL1.
