Oh dear. I was hoping Fuji would take them. :-(

Still, maybe the new OM-D MkII will also incorporate some games and an MP3 player eh? ;-)

My wife's favourite electronics manufacturer is Sony, so now I can go and buy all the current and future OM-Ds and pertaining goodies and not get my brain-cell shaken by the decibels. (Yeah, right...)

Not surprising, if confirmed. Sony's CSCs are as woeful as Olympus's finances, Olympus's CSCs are as healthy as Sony's finances.

HI, X.
I am having some difficulty is separating fact from sarcasm in your post! :-) "Olympus CSC's are as healthy as Sony's finances". Have your read reports of Sony's losses lately? Mainly from the tv and electronics side of production. So your wife may have some nasty times ahead!

For a balanced assessment, what do you consider is not rubbish?

Bad luck Connor,
My pet hate is Canon - after my camera packed in out of warranty.
I have quite a lot of Sony stuff and so I hope I don't have your experience.
How come you reviewed the same 'phone case 6 times?

yeh, i dislike canon too!
Although i only bought one product from them- they are badly made, and their screens are mostly terrible...

Connor makes a valid point about Panasonic. I've bought many and various bits of theirs and not one of them has ever gone wrong. They've all worked like new for many years. And continue to do so.

I have three votes for Panasonic, my LC10, FZ38 and LX3 are all going strong, and despite their disparate specs and handling characteristics, are lovely cameras to use. But, there again, my vote for my favourite digital camera for its imaging quality would just go to my Sony R1, and is still going strong after all these years. But which one do I like using the most? Well, that vote goes to the lovely little LX3.
