Re: An OMD forum solves all of this.

The simplest answer, and the one suggested more than once by others, is to start an OM-D forum and call it a day.

The Pen users stay with mFT and the E-system and other DSLR crowds can stay here until they are ready to migrate.

The distinctions being made here between mFT and FT are not longer relevant with the EM-1. These are merely distinctions without differences.

The discussions should be about how to get the most out of the one beautiful system and not the two old systems.

Sensible since the OMD EM-1 is at least the first step in merging the two mounts. There is more to photography than the mounts, and more we can do about the future than the past. Should I purchase the EM-1 (it took me two years to purchase the E-5), I would still want to be in two forums. The positive pay off is a lot less bickering and sniping about where a thread should be posted and a more direct relation to how Olympus itself breaks out its product lines. A solid suggestion.

We need PEN, Forum and DSLR forums.

I thought for a while that OMD could be merged with this forum, but I think people would be happier with three forums.  The EM-5 introduction and the comments of the past couple weeks suggest three is the right number.  Let the Panny people decide if they want an mft or Panasonic forum
