Every digital camera I have owned has been four thirds or micro four thirds except the recently added Nikon 700. I hope to see a rebirth of Olympus photography gear. It would be a little disgusting to see a 32" television on QVC with the Olympus brand name on it.
Thanks for the link, Kirk, that was a great read and led down a rabbit hole of additional good stuff.
One of the big failings of this Mount is the lack of a joint marketing effort. Most people were never aware of the incredible depth to the lens and body offerings.I reached out to both Olympus and Panasonic to try to get an audience to promote the idea of the consortium/ Mount marketing efforts in conjunction. Unfortunately both divisions in Canada were not very receptive.
I find that the sports/birding advantages of m4/3s, especially of the E-M1 family, seem to be underrated. OTOH, maybe I'm the only person using them for sports.
What a nice article - thanks for sharing it with us, Kirk!
It's good to be reminded that M4/3 is not purely an Olympus/Panasonic story, which gives a bit more hope that the format has a future. I hope in due course Panasonic will re-discover the appeal of small, light camera bodies. If the Olympus range were to disappear, that gap would become more glaring.
Kirk, thank you for sharing the link and giving the piece a much wider audience. Much appreciated and thanks for giving us VSL readers the chance to vicariously shoot many different cameras and systems and to see photography from a working professional's perspective.
