Yes, that review was well done. OM Systems has a very good first effort. Oly users who haven’t upgraded in a few years should consider it.

The main appeal is still the light weight of the fast and long lenses compared to full frame equivalent coverage. But without the new features and improvements, m43 would have less of a niche.

Yes it seems like an excellent system. I was hoping you would see this and offer your perspective as a veteran Olympus user . Thanks

I use Lumix, but do pay attention to what all the majors are doing. I don’t do much birding, but the OM-1 would be a pick for that. But then I’d need more lenses… all mine are under 100mm.

I’m likely to buy a Lumix GH6 first.
