Designed differently? Almost every small sensor camera uses a ND filter, but it's usually not mentioned in the specs. If you don't understand why, do a little research on diffraction.

Most people use AP to control DOF and not light.  It is very confusing to have three f-stops for aperture priority and the third setting is not really an fstop but an fstop equivalent in light.  Not only do users not get the increased DOF they were after but they get an extra layer between the sensor and their subject which does hurt image quality.

Olympus could easily communicate this better.  The third fstop could be disabled by default, or it could be labeled as a ND filter as such on the menu.

Your average user won't know this.  I've searched the manual and don't see a reference.  Only those very familiar with cameras and/or that study the exif data will realize what is going on.
