FT - mFT - increasingly meaningless distinction!

(Micro Four Thirds models should be discussed on the Micro Four Thirds Talk forum).

It is an arbitrary classification that DPreview.  Many of us use both

We're waiting for the next Olympus DSLR.

For which we may well be waiting forever. It is becoming increasingly difficult to see any way that Olympus could justify - let alone finance - such a camera.

Speculation about an upcoming, overpriced OM-D should be taken to the m4/3 talk forum, where people care about milc.

I care about the future of Olympus and its 30k employees to some degree, but more immediately about the ability to continue to use my eight FT lenses. And I find that most of them work quite well on mFT bodies to produce better images than I can possibly get with my E-5.  But also that present mFT bodies cannot do everything that I need with them, especially in winter.

So I suppose that we need a special forum for mFT users using FT lenses...
