Olympus' new OM System OM-1

I must've missed the press release, and in case you did too, Olympus got bought out by JIP, who then created OM Digital Solutions to handle that side of things. They're rebranding Olympus cameras as OM System, so that explains the wonky camera name. Anyway, they've released a new camera that appears to be a big hit! It's a Micro Four Thirds mirrorless camera and the world's only IP53 weather-sealed camera. Cool!

I guess they wanted to keep the name for brand recognition. It seems like the nice camera. The specs are impressive. I won't be lining up to get one, though.

I saw a review of the camera, and I don't think it's any more impressive than what's already out there. Maybe I'm missing something, but I think it is nostalgia that has photographers singing its praise. It's the last Olympus. That means something to some users.

The camera sure is getting good reviews. It looks like they're going to remove the Olympus name going forward. I think that's a bad idea. It's a well-known brand.

I wish they'd keep the name. Hearing it brings back so many warm feelings for me. Some of my earliest cameras were made by Olympus. It looks like their new camera is getting lots of good press. Good for them.
