Re: Big GA..there is absolutely NO doubt who it was aimed at....

IMHO it failed for 3 reasons:

1.  Lack of pro wide primes & fast normal/short tele lenses.  The only wide prime was a fisheye 8mm.  The next prime was a 25mm f/2.8.  Are you kidding me?

Where is the 25mm f/1.2?  There should have been 10mm, 12mm, 14mm and 17mm f/1.4 primes.  There should have been a 42mm f/1.2.

The long end was very well covered with the 150mm f/2.0 and the 300 f/2.8.  The wide end was not.

2.  Lack of Tilt/Shift wide angle as others have said.

3. Lack of decent high ISO capability.  The Olympus ISO range tops out at 6400 with the E-5.
