A big fail

The recent article on 4/3 lenses by Michael Reichmann (well ... I'm assuming its him) over on LL is an interesting one. he kicks off with saying "Four Thirds was conceived by Olympus as a new Pro format". I tend to agree.

Big fail then because no pros use it. Maybe a few unknowns but it really failed to capture the pro market.

Well...photographers such as Pulitzer Prize winner Jay Dickman, former UN official photographer John Isaac, Award Winning photographer Jay Klinghorn...hardly unknowns.

Ok, lets just say for arguments sake there are 3 pro photographers that use them. Still a big fail. They did not create this camera for 3 guys if they were meaning to capture/aim at  the pro market. That would be my point.
