I stumbled across a forum for Japanese accountants and investment managers today. Predictably the main topic of conversation was Olympus. Oh yes, there was heated debate about whether the 12mp sensor in the E-P3 was sufficient or should Olympus have gone with the Panasonic 16mp sensor. Noise at higher ISO was another contentious issue and there was a lengthy discussion about whether or not the E-P5 would have a built in EVF. There was also a number of stunning pictures posted to demonstrate the quality of Olympus JPEGs and a very strong entry to the Picture of the Month Competition, the theme of which ironically was “Guilty Secrets.” But wait, shouldn’t they have been discussing the company’s liquidity, the plunging value of its shares, the likelihood of a hostile take-over and the ramifications of two decades of false accounting? No, we’re doing a pretty good job of all that on the photo forums, so they can just get on with enjoying their photography.
