Re: An OMD forum solves all of this.

The problem is that the Panasonic GH3 is as 'Pro' as the OM-D cameras. And people own OM-Ds and Panasonic cameras, and lenses and accessories from both camps.

There have been attempts to separate the M43 forum in the past and it has been strongly resisted. So most people would still go to the M43 forum to discuss the OM-D cameras anyway as they have no affinity with the DSLR forum and have never owned an E-system camera.

There are 10 types of people.
Those that understand binary and those that don't.

And there is the root of it, people own more than one camera, perhaps cameras made by more than one manufacturer, yet all are of the four thirds and/or micro four thirds lineage.  You have a four thirds camp, a micro four thirds camp, and now it would seem a camp that marries the two (depending on how good the AF is will contribute to the success of this marriage).  If there is a need to change things once the frenzy over the new release subsides, breaking it among these three lines seems to be the most sensible approach I have seen.  Nothing manufacturer specific, just mount/system specific.
