Re: Signs of (Olympus) Life

Absolutely true.

Mistrust on paper, mistrust on future plans, mistrust on business plans, mistrust on intents, mistrust on later software changes, mistrust on rumors (even level 5 ones...), mistrust on road maps, mistrust on good intentions business-wise.

All I trust is what I can use NOW. The Oly lenses and Pana bodies I use are excellent NOW (ymmv). Completely regardless of any future plans of Olympus or Panasonic.

I had a Canon 300D since 2004. If Canon had disappeared from the market that time I was still able to use the camera today, because it still works and the lenses are THERE (I dont actually use it, because I prefer the comfort, quality and resolution of current gear).

Absolultely same will apply to Olympus or Panasonic: if they'd disappear today we're probably still having fun in the next 15-20 years.

Thats different with Fuji or Nikon Z or Canon M: people have to WAIT for really good lenses to show up finally and get the best out of their gear.

If things appear to good to be true - they're usually neither of both.
