    Re: E7 and E-M7 rumours

    The camera model I am expecting before those is an E-P5.

      I'm afraid there's nothing new there, David, just existing rumours recycled. You can only hope.

        Is there anyone still expecting an E-7? Certainly not me.

          I'm not expecting an E-7. I'm thinking about picking up an E-M5 for the sensor rather than an E-5 for the build. Then I could pick up some of the fast, manual focus primes now available for m4/3.
          It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.

            So am I right I thinking that Olympus are going to cut out their 4/3 range completely in the near future?

                  I am waiting for it. Maybe in one day it will replace my E-5.

                  Except the new sensor, I do not see any reason to switch to m4/3 : no professional tele lenses, not so many macro lenses, very high prices for the lens and accesories.

                  Even If I pay a higher price for E-7, then I can buy very cheap used PRO lenses. At the end I will have a 4/3 combo wich destroys any m4/3 combo.

                  As an wildlife shooter, I am using now E-5, 70-300, 50-200, EC-20 and looking to buy Sigma 50-500, maybe 150 F/2.0.
                  Switching to E-M5 + 75-300 will be downgrade for me. No other telelenses to buy.
                  And E-M5 is still not good as E-5 for fast moving objects (by example BIFs).

                  In this moment M4/3 is not yet a real professional system. Maybe it will be in 3-5 years, if they start building professional lenses and cameras. Also prices has to be lowered a bit.

                      Ah, but the more professional the system becomes, the higher the prices will be, not likely the other way around.

                            It depends on your usage whether you consider it up to the task or not. What constitutes a 'professional' system anyway?
                            I read of more and more professional photographers turning to m4/3rds in preference to their heavier mirror box cameras and lenses
