But from the 1022 Forum who has been bleeding to nothing, after Oly stopped dSLRs.

This is also the reason why they don't care about splitting Oly and Panny, despite the fact that people said no, over and over.

1022 thinks they are the cream of the world, so they would take the EM-1, but not the 'lesser' cameras: it would be below themselves.

I always believed 1041 to be a popular and democratic forum, and would rather have it stay so.

The poll won't stop people from creating such threads (nothing will, really), but hopefully it will lower activity in these, so redundant threads won't contaminate recent post list for a long time.

I've seen a little bit of that over there. A few recommendations to split the M4/3s forum between OM-Ds and GH, and the Pens, GX, G cameras. I'm not worried about it as it is impossible to split the forum along those lines. You can't separate the M4/3s forum by camera style, or features because there's way too much overlap.

I think what will happen is the two forums will remain as is, and any posts there that are purely about M4/3s will be moved here. Posts that touch on 4/3s topics will remain there. Eventually, I suspect that the forums will be merged and we'll have "One Beautiful Forum".

Followed eventually by a resplit, because we're too rowdy and upset all the other forums on DPReview with our rambunctious behaviour.'s gear's gear list
