I have a soft spot for Olympus.

As did I over 30 years, having run a whole yard of OM film cameras and owning a big pile of OM glassware. A big assignment loomed, a million miles from any C-41 processor and digital seemed a way to go.

So I bought a pair of E450's , Jan 2010, his and hers to avoid disputes about settings, and now I realise that the corruption in the boardroom is merely symptomatic of the sickness in the whole company. So they ditched the 4/3 lens system and move to micro 4/3 and now one of the new 450's just doesn't turn on. And there are plenty of discussions out there about failing Oly software and generally Oly debug information is like hens teeth to find.

In my life I like cars that start on cold mornings, coffee that is hot and cameras that get on with the business of taking pictures. None of my mechanical cameras ever refused to take pictures.

My money will never go near Olympus anymore
