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?
