Thom Hogan is one of the most famous Nikon reviewers (bythom.com). Normally he is only active inside the nikon dpreview forum, writing very interesting articles. But now he made a small jump into the Olympus dpreview forum. Maybe he is ready for the E-P1?
“I almost always have big pockets available to me. Either a vest or a jacket or sometimes even cargo pockets on my pants/shorts. Likewise the small fanny pack I wear when running/biking. If the camera and lens combos I want fit there, I have a winner. The LX3, G10, Ricoh G200, even DP2 all fall into that category. All have liabilities that I think m4/3 would solve, though.”
“It’ll also give Oly the first real burst of significant growth and market share change they’ve had in a long time.”
“So what would I do if I were Oly?
1. Kill most of the full 4/3 models. Create consumer m4/3 and high-end m4/3.
2. Followup to the E-3 needs a big size reduction (about the same amount as I need to reduce personally ;~).
3. Introduce a mFX (full frame). Small size, high performance full frame. Nikon and Canon have left that hole for anyone to exploit.”
I just want to say that Thom is one of the most serious, competent and friendly people I have met inside the dpreview forum. His website is worth visiting!
Damn are they fast! Two weeks ago they reviewed the Panasonic 7-14mm lens. And now they have been the first to make a complete 14-140mm lens review! Well done!
Excellent lens indeed!
