Take photos

Good comments TJ. While we're waiting for something new to appear I think it's a good time to go take great photos with all this wonderful Olympus gear we already have.

Olympus was unwilling to commit...

To the best of my memory, Olympus pointedly and repeatedly stated that they were not sure whether their solution to the freely-admitted problem of inadequate AF and CAF for FT lenses would be a dslr or another EVIL camera,

But they were also quite adamant in stating that the OM-D would not be their top offering, and thereby, even at the cost of some possible OM-D sales, leaving room for that new -by implication more rugged, more weatherperoof and otherwise higher specced - new camera.

Re: Olympus was unwilling to commit...

Eric, as an owner of 2 E-5's, they still have plenty of life left in them. The decision of Olympus to go with the EM-5 rather than an E-7 was certainly the right one.

The new camera will be state of the art with the newest chip technology.

This is just a token comment to keep the thread alive after 5 days.
