  1. Just ordered the OM-D E-M5 kit in silver from Jessops.
    Still have the OM1 I spent two month's salary on when I was 19 and have been waiting all this time for Olympus to bring it into the digital age.

    Welcome ( when it arrives) I got mine (a black one) this week from London Camera Exchange (Strand) very helpful staff there, several have a good knowledge of m43. It's raining this weekend ..... So I'll go out & use it :)
    Olympus have in my mind been at the forefront of digital development for the last decade at least - dust removal, weatherproofing, live view, phenomenal lenses (admittedly at a cost!) and so much more. The trouble is the cameras got bigger E5 is a lovely camera but I think my E-M5 will get more day to day use.
    What Olympus haven't been at the forefront of is management of these breakthroughs, they now need to keep the momentum of the m43 going somehow. Hopefully the new sensors and a succession of good reviews will help.
