    So the problem is of your making?

    That said there is still plenty to choose from including all the old M42 and
    M39 lenses from any manufacturer.

    Right. I would say that the fact Olympus researched and developed the
    4/3 standard, that they re-optimized the optics to take advantage of
    this new standard, that the lenses are designed to throw light across
    the whole sensor straight on,that the whole system could be lighter
    and smaller pretty much tells me this was from the ground up. The
    clues are there if you look hard enough.
    Really ..full frame? So why not the APS-C route? So your claim the
    system was designed to be cheap falls down here. Olympus developed the
    SWF system, live view and implemented IS, all of this on a new
    standard.These things are not exactly cheap in terms of R&D
    costs.There is more to a cameras production costs than just the
    sensor.Olympus E cameras are greater than the sum of their parts. But
    of course you want yesteryears technology on today's new standards.
    Really? A new E410, 2 lenses, a bag and memory card right now in
    Currys for £350, or do you fancy the E3 with a FREE grip and pro
    camera bag? Maybe the cash back deal on the 510 is a hard one to
    swallow? Are those the savings Olympus have not shared with its
    customers. Pro lenses..??? do you expect to pick these up for a song?

    When you got your legacy lenses you paid the going rate for them. You
    got them for an OM system,they are different and that's something you
    will have to live with. Blaming Olympus for not including backwards
    compatibility when they built a new system is pathetic. If you are so
    sure they have turned you over then sue them.....but you might need to
    sell your lenses to fund the action.

    Well, for me I don't care because I only intend to use the latest Zuiko
    lens's anyway.

    Oly E510 is the best bang for buck DSLR on the market right now so shut
    up. I only paid $650.00 for my 510 w/14-42mm lens just two days ago.

    You are FOS. Go to the below url and come back and tell me which has the
    superior image quality. Olympus E510 or Nikon D40X? Anyone with decent
    vision can clearly see the 510 image is superior.

    In your world I guess you assume anyone who disagrees must
    work for Olympus. Sad.

    Oh - and the answer is no anyway.
