Olympus Surveyed me

    Probably 'cause I got a rebate check (I never bought anything direct from Oly) Olympus sent me a survey on the OM-D and gave me a 5% discount coupon.

    Y'all we glad to know that all my wishlist items are now implanted into the minds of Olympus. Anything new and cool I will fully take credit for and all the bad stuff ... well, if only they had of listened to me.

    Primarily I pushed hard on fully programmable buttons (any/every button any/every function) and improved dynamic range (I'm a dynamic range junkie).

    I also pushed my primary source for info on MFT as Mu-43.com - Micro Four Thirds User Group - Micro 4/3 Photography News, Discussion, and Rumors so maybe Oly folks will visit the site more regularly!

    Another thing I pushed for was tethered shooting and external power options.

    Anybody else get surveyed? Maybe I'm special on account of all the Spork stuff?

    I did it too. However I am not as fussy as some others and pretty happy with my OM-D.

    Me too, although there weren't any Sporks listed to get at 5% off... :mad:  .

    If it was 25% off I'd be in GAS mode, but for 5% not so much.

    I did take advantage of the $224 price on the FL600-R flash but that was before the survey...

    Yeah, I got the survey as well - and the 5 percent discount coupon code. Why do I have a feeling they will misinterpret my responses? One thing they shouldn't be confused about is my repeated request for a rangerfinder-styled camera with a built-in EVF.

    Yeah they will probably misinterpret it when they translate it to Japanese for the top management. :D ;) 

    Sent from my GT-N7100 using Mu-43 mobile app

    When translated to Japanese that will read 'clip on EVF', no doubt about it..... :rolleyes:

    I'm surprised they didn't bring you into the fold and give you a pre-production E-M6 to play with. Perhaps they didn't actually realize that you are the same Rob Watson who is the worlds pre-eminent sporktographer.

    I got one for my Pen. I told them to hold to their guns and never build in an EVF!

    I got surveyed too. I let them have it over not supplying hood and pouches. I also asked them to make black and silver lenses and release them at the SAME TIME.

    I also told them how pissed I was that they released their OM-D extended warranty close to a year after the camera was released. I only heard about it after my warranty had expired.

    Didn't say much about cameras other than the need for better focus tracking

    I also asked them to bring their support back to the US as I've heard its now outsourced overseas. I was delighted with Oly's support staff when I had problems with my OMD last year. Not sure if I'm going to get the same level of service when I get their next camera
