Re: Micro Four Thirds system announced

Actually, there is some point in this idea. Before I got this E400 I used a C8080 for a year or two. What a nice camera, I really loved the silence of that beast compared to a DSLR, and if it had had decent high ISO, I would have kept it!

The lack of moving parts means I could hand hold the 8080 to much longer shutter speeds than the E400. I know that IS solves the hand held problem, but nothing solves the mirror and shutter noise in a quiet location.

Thus the compact size, quiet operation and the 4/3 adapter do have appeal.

BTW Oly - try to make the lens adapter free to those who want it please :-)

Look, I'm an old man. I shouldn't be expected to put up with this.
