I believe the OMD is a probably the best m43 camera to have come out thus far. It really delivers on the promise of m43. I also have no plans to get one because I have a mantra when it comes to gear. 1. Never buy new camera bodies. As cool as it is new gear does not automatically mean old gear stops working or is no longer capable of great results. My E-P2 cost about an eighth of what it did when new and my GH2 about half (although technically I didn't buy it I traded for it). 1b. If you MUST buy new spend it on lenses. 2. Like all electronic gear m43 cameras suffer from an abundance of enthusiastic early adopters and a good deal of hype. Its fun to read and even dream about having it but wait six months and you're looking at MUCH less cost. 2b. In six months a lot of early adopter will be selling the gear that is HOT right now because there will be new HOTTER gear out with it's own abundance of enthusiasm and hype. You'd be amazed how much low mileage gear will pop up. 3. Whenever you start to get into those conversations with yourself about how you NEED a certain bit of new gear go out and take pictures with some of your OLD gear. Remind yourself why you bought it in the first place. 4. Sometimes you will not like the new gear that everyone else thinks is great. There is nothing wrong with you, I have yet to have anyone ask me what camera I used to shoot something (that wasn't a board member here since we seem to have a particular fondness for that question). 4b. Buy the gear that makes you want to go out and make images. If its the newest, latest and greatest...cool. If it's the uncool, much maligned P.O.S. that everyone hates...also good. 4c. I operate a strict gear in needs to be paid for by gear out model (as I am sure many of us do). I figure in 2 years that I am probably no more than $100 off of where I started. I've tried a lot of gear and found stuff I like and some that I really don't but it's like playing black jack with house money.
