An open letter to Panolympus (by Tyson Robichaud)

Our friend Tyson Robichaud analyzed the current situation of MicroFourThirds and in general mirrorless system. He ends his post with an open request to Panasonic and Olympus:

My plea to both Panasonic and Olympus:
Panasonic: Now offering 3 different “small” dSLR style body lines that are barely smaller than a Rebel? Really? This is ludicrous in my mind….Please continue to advance the GF platform
Olympus: Please oh please have someone redesign your menus and interface.
To both (my rant): For the love of all that is holy, get some new, fast, reasonably affordable, small lenses to market to compliment the kit lenses you’ve already released.

I do agree with his “analysis” and you?
