    Just wondering. Are the EM1-4 prototypes gone wrong hence the EM5? :biggrin:

    lol. I think the E-M5 is supposed to be like a "Mini E-5". :)

    Don't know if serious, but i'll bite for my fellow dumasses.

    Back in the eighties:

    Heavy duty "high-end"= OM-1, OM-2, OM-3, OM-4(ti)
    Consumer "enthusiast"= OM-10, OM-20, OM-30

    EM-5 suggests e-continuation of the more "high-end" single digit OM's. :biggrin::cool:

    The present.
    This seems plausible.

    Then again... Pentax started at 10 and reached 5 more recently. By way of 20 then 7. So 10, 20, 7, 5...

    So who knows... Maybe Numerology? The Life Path of 5 is:

    "...you are versatile and multi-talented, upbeat and inspirational and a good motivator. You are very dynamic, persuasive, adaptable, versatile and bright.

    You are an explorer and adventurer and you like to do several things at the same time..."

    The first EOS was the EOS 650. Manufacturers like to leave room for later.

    Apple pulled a similar thing recently with Final Cut. It jumped from version 7 to the new 10{X}. There was no 8 or 9 versions.
