    At least that's the rumour. The brand new Olympus E-400 is no more.
    They made 2000 of them, Kodak, the CCD supplier F------ up somehow and
    the E-400 got the shaft. Back to the drawing board for Olympus.
    Supposedly, 3 new DSLRs and the E-3 are on the way.

    Check his subject: Kodak screws Olympus! Oh my God!

    Kodak has employees, retirees, stock holders. Why should decent folks
    suffer because of RichA's manic posts.

    Freedom of speech ends at some point. This twit is screwing with good folks
    who have worked hard and long and contributed. RichA contributes what?

  3. Shame on you. You use this forum because you have no other life. And then
    revert to silly insults. You are one sad son of a B.

    I don't think Rich is going to affect the stock value, Kodak seems to
    have that taken care of by themselves.

    I just got down from roof fixing a broken tile.
    We seem to not have too much damge, a lot of cracks in the walls and
    crack tiles.

    The good news is we have a lot of cold beer on hand and power to keep
    it cold.

  10. RichA is just a rumour monger, he has no proof whats so ever. He has
    started this same rumour on dpreview, again with zero facts to back his
    claims.

    And what have you people got up to this point? RUMOURS from
    "websites." Which do you think is LIKELY to be more accurate, websites
    or Olympus themselves? If you actually think I made this up, then that
    is your prerogative to believe, but it isn't true. I specifically
    asked Olympus at the show about the E-400 because I wanted one as a
    second body for my E-1.
    My only alternative is to jump brands.

    For someone who spends a lot of time researching the strengths and
    weaknesses of cameras he will never own, you really did a poor job of
    researching one you want to buy.

    According to www.olympus.co.uk/consumer/dslr_E-400.htm, "The E-400 is
    available in Europe only."

    You're in Canada, right? (And I thought Merkins were bad at
    geography.)

    I know that. The first rumour (from someone on a "website" NOT
    Olympus) I heard was that they could only produce a thousand bodies
    and that was why it was only being marketed in Europe. According to
    Olympus, it was never to have been brought to North America, the E-500
    is considered their mainstay there.
    P.S. NO one is as stupid when it comes to geography as Americans are.

    You said it, 'rumour'. If you can produce the website URL, it might improve
    the credibility factor here.

    If you read the threads in dpreview's Olympus DSLR group, you should
    run across it. They weren't the only ones to speculate that the lack
    of initial North American distribution related to supply and that full
    world-wide distribution would happen once that problem was rectified.

    Waitaminute. Didn't you say the source for your rumor was Olympus? And
    didn't you just accuse someone of using 'RUMOURS from "websites."'
    instead of accepting the Truth According to Rich ... which came from
    Olympus?

    Talk about stoopid....
