    Have you considered...

    That if Olympus does get it right with the promised Four Thirds lens users' solution camera - that second hand FT lens prices might be on the rise? Think about it...

    The ZD 50-200mm with an EC-20 would give you a 100 to 400mm ~f5.5-6.9 zoom which might be a better telephoto solution than the m43rds 75-300mm ~f4.8-6.7 zoom.

    Something to think about.

    Ooh, I'm thinking about it all right...

    Not to mention use of the old standard primes.

    Yes, I've definitely thought about it. A good "solution" would make my FT lenses more valueable to myself and to others. If I like the new camera(s), I may buy it and happily keep using the great 12-60 and 50-200 lenses. And if Olympus ever make comparable MFT lenses, I may replace the FT lenses with native FT versions. It's all very exciting and promising. I hope they come through with a line of cameras that will please us all!

    For me - I hope our extensive stock of Four Thirds lenses becomes even more popular for hiring here in the UK and Europe

    That sounds encouraging for what you can't tell us. As an E-M5 user with a couple of useful 4/3's lenses (& others), I will just read about it & drool because I keep getting reminded I need to save up more for retirement (I'm pretty much that already while my wife slaves away at work). If there will be a better adapter solution for existing M4/3's bodies then I would want to get that, but another body...? I can't justify that for a while.

    I'm in the same boat, Ross, but I'll be thrilled if Olympus do deliver, for the overall health of the system. And in 3 years time today's premium priced camera will be tomorrow's bargain second-hand buy!

    I think for me it will be a weight, size, price consideration factor and if this is the case it will herald the end of the 4/3 era and make it exclusively a Mu43 choice factor.

    Not a bad thing I think as 4/3 never had the fame and take up it deserved.
