    Yes - the texture is most interesting thing about that launch.

    Wait, what?

  3. Something weird about the entire DP preview. Take a look at page 6:
    http://www.dpreview.com/previews/olympusEM5/page6.asp

    Until this morning, when they Photoshopped it, that image towards the
    bottom of the page of the camera with accessories wasn't even branded
    OM-D. It was this image:
    http://tinyurl.com/74hhk83 of an Olympus camera called an ON-M!

    Olympus Schizo! ;-)

    Why would a user of the 24x36mm OM-1/2/3/4 be anxious for a 1/4 frame
    (17.3 x 13 mm) look-a-like?

    What is with all the "excitement" it's a smaller sensor than APS-C.

  5. Perhaps they are tired of getting film developed. But there have been
    closer look-alikes before, even from Olympus. The E-420 is one example
    that springs to mind. The OM-D looks more like an ugly OM-10 or the
    Cosina made OM-2000 than it does to any Olympus classic. Just like
    those models, there isn't even any control where the shutter speed
    selector would be on an OM-x.

    They had to wait till Maitani was dead and buried before naming this
    monstrosity.
    Its closer to 110.

    Well, Olympus people have been asking for something with a shape akin
    to their old SLRs. But aside from that,
    I think the overall trend toward smaller gear is inevitable. The
    only reason Nikon and Canon are still making such large pro bodies is
    they think the users will balk at paying $5000+ for something as
    "small" as the D800 or 5DII.
