True. It's a tension between my insecurities about the future of Olympus and a bout of GAS attack. People will say a camera is a camera and whatever lurks in the future for Oly won't affect our ability to find another brand. But I resent it very personally. I'm just a hobbyist, I began photography in the early 90's with an OM-1 and the only other camera I've ever been comfortable with besides my OMs (there were others) and XA has been the New Cannonet 17QL. I've tried countless Canon, Nikon, Pentax, you name it I probably tried it, and never felt at ease. It took me an awfully long time to switch to digital until Olympus came up with the E-P1, because nothing else I tried worked for me before.But you don’t really need a new camera.
So if I have to switch allegiance, I'd better get a leg up, and sooner rather than later. And as I said, my venerable E-M5 while fun is closer to retirement than it ever was. No hurry, just to be ready.
