Yeah, we know if you want to read something very objective about Olympus, there's always Robin Wong to the rescue

So you're going to save some more money, Ricardo?

What with the E-M1 clearly being rubbish.

Lol, where in any shape or form did I imply the EM-1 "is rubbish" - been saying quite the opposite actually

Yes, I can think the E-M1 is an excellent camera even if 4/3rds AF is not quite up there and Robin Wong is still very Olympus biased Those are different independent points, right?

Just think how much money you could have been saving if Olympus had made the E-M1 US$1700 like the E-5.

Nah, you are simply not making sense

My guess is you can blame the E-M5 for selling so well that they recouped their initial R&D and could lower the MSRP on the E-M1.

Nah, that doesn't make sense

If you look at it from that perspective, Olympus have basically cost you at least US$300 in savings, Ricardo. And another US$300 by selling that 12-40 f/2 for US$1000 instead of US$1300.

Again, you are not making any sense, even joking! Imagine that I even put my price for the camera at $1,500, and camera with kit at $2k-$2,500 range. Was hardly off

Yes, but you were going to save US$1500 by not buying this camera.  Now that the actual MSRP is US$1300 Olympus have robed you of a US$200 savings.

It's all in the numbers, Ricardo, and impeccable logic.
