    Hi Guys and specially Moderators ..
    I know we are all overexcited about Olympus OMD and its a wonderful camera . Now every second thread here is about something something about OMD and its getting to the point where u start loosing interest and skip the threads .Can I request moderators to put these discussions under common threads i.e-
    1) First Impressions of OMD EM5
    2) First shots with OMD
    3) OMD Comparasion with MFTs
    4) OMD Comparasion with FF / APS-C etc etc ..
    It will far more organised discusion and we can have everyone's feelings and experiences condensed at one place where its far easier to follow and read about it rather than reading 100 threads .
    Cheers

    Or better yet, how about if there could be a separate sub-forum under the "Olympus Cameras" forum, ie: "OM-D Discussions" And then that sub-forum could include bhupinder's ideas as stickies? :thumbup:

    Yeah too bad there's not the ability to filter the threads by tag or something. Hard to find anything in the active discussions with 2/3 threads being 'where's my OMD'/'here's my OMD'/My first pics from the OMD..

    Oh well, I'm sure it'll blow over in a few weeks.

    Question is....more OMD EM-5 posts or E-P3 posts (when first released) :biggrin:

    But I agree - there is a bit of overload here....:biggrin:

    I'll bet you once you get an OM-D, you'll post your own thread on your findings.

    So True :) this few days all I do is just repeating the answer on how to use OM-D but bhupinder idea is great, too much clutter and repeated question, raising envy from those that still wait for their OM-D to come :)

    Everyone's excited because the E-M5 is an exciting camera ;)

    On a serious note though, I'm sure similar rush happened before with other camera launches, although this is the first Oly mft for a while that's actually something new. I'm sure this will die down once people actually receive their E-M5s and go outside shooting ;)

    The top 16 posts on my "latest discussions" are all OMD. All the frantic posts about who ships what when are getting old. I don't mind substantive posts about the camera or it's output.

    Yeah, maybe pre-ownership posts anointing it the "King of MFTs" might lead to some of the OD. ;)

    I think it's pretty hilarious. I'm sure it's a great camera but this reminds of the last time I lived in a town where the football team won the Superbowl (72 Dolphins)...how shall I put it... a tad over exuberant. I guess as long as they keep it quiet after midnight and refrain from public urination it's all good.

    Jokes apart guys .We are happy to read and share everyone's excitement and the main reason is if everything is at one place then we can read and can't skip some threads. If I have some queries tomorrow then I know there is an OMD section or thread with different subheadings and I can find my answers. It will be far easier to read all the posts under one heading .
