btw, the whole thing about micro four thirds are crazy right now. If they can improve the AF to equivalent to the SLR cameras and develop a professional grade body, there is a possibility that Olympus might abandon their 4/3 system. I don't think that 4/3 system is needed at that point.
However, they might keep it alive with small improvement on the models, just to keep/slowing down 4/3 system user from switching to another system.
What do you think about this?
Doubt this will happen. Oly has too much invested in an outstanding array of 4/3's lenses which require larger bodies to properly balance.
Where I think they've been very smart is in coming out with two lines, 4/3's and now m4/3's, which compliment each other. Many will end up buying one of each and then the lenses as well, m4/3s for travel and everyday and 4/3's for special photo sessions.
I know I likely will, cost of both getting ever more being reasonable.
As for the E-3, no sooner had I written it off than I bumped into a friend today whop described how much he loves his. It's totally balanced with the heavier pro lenses and built like a tank. Or maybe I should say boat...he described how he was perched on a rock at the shore shooting when an aberrant large wave drenched him and camera alike. It came out shooting without a problem (lens and camera fully weathersealed). He later cleaned them up and nothing was the worse for it.
Different tools for different applications.
Speaking of, yes to the E650 w/ TruePicV and higher res flippy LCD.
