It's no secret Olympus fans have been agitating for years for an OM\ndigital. In my case, I thought it would be good to be able to access\nthe sensor by swinging the back open like on the film OM-1n, but I\nknow they will not include that as a feature because it is too risky\nand there are issues with long lead or cable runs from the sensor to\nthe process electronics. But it is clear that cameras like the M9\nLeica, the Fuji X100/X10/XPro1 and possibly this new Olympus are\nresponses to people who are sick of the current DSLR market\nofferings. These are not for P&S migrators like the cheap m4/3rd\ncameras are. And no pro is going to ditch their Nikon D3 or D700 for\none of these nostalgia cameras, because people expect those cameras to\nshow up at pro photo shoots, but pros may very well buy one anyway.\nP.S. If this thing does come out, and it is like an OM, expect prices\nfor used OM-1n's to rise the way silver rises when the gold price\nincreases.
