Re: love the omd
Thanks for the insight Garrett. I would love to have an E-M1 with sealed Pro lenses but that is way beyond my budget for another camera. Honestly, I have been using a $300 P&S with OK re...

Olympus Air A01
And just recently released: http://www.getolympus.com/us/en/air-a01.html Could be a neat concept. Being somewhat "open source" could mean that controls and advanced features beyond...

E-M10
The main reason I was leaning more for the E-M5 was the weather sealing. Alaska is not always rainy despite what some outsiders may think. But when it is wet, I sure do appreciate waterproof gear. ...

Keep my P&S, get an OM-D, or ?
