Re: This Changes Everything

To read Johns comprehensive hands on review of this new offering from Olympus you could be forgiven for thinking that this was the answer to every photographers prayers, the Holy Grail of cameras in fact. It still begs the question, who is going to buy the thing? A body + 12mm. lens + an EVF., that will be 1600 sir, you can imagine the reaction from the other side of the counter, "How ******* much?" (insert your own expletive) all that for what is all said and done just an advanced compact. If Olympus think we are going to ditch our E3/E5 DSLRs and buy into this they are sadly deluded. As for myself I have just bought a 11-22mm SWA to go with my E3 outfit and with a bit of luck an E5 will follow in the not too distant future. Sure it will significantly increase the weight of my already quite heavy backpack but there is something strangely reassuring in the weight and build of a pro spec DSLR that just inspires confidence let alone the results it is capable of producing.
