It is a wee bit over exaggerated, Jayanand, but it exists. It happened
to me once with my D100, but it came off easily with a standard
rubber-bulb blower.

But that is only once in how many years? I bought the D100 when it came out.

I always thought the strength of the 4/3 system was going to be a
standardization around lens mounts and things like that, allowing
manufacturers (camera manufacturers) to piggy-back on some standards.
It never really took off though. In the end, there will be three
standard mounts, just like there always has been: Nikon, Canon and

I have handled an E-1 at work (we bought one for a museum project).
Feels solid, the way you want a camera to feel. If the prices came
down I'd consider it, but that is what it would take to get me to
conisider Olympus. Instead of buying in to an open system, you get
locked in to an odd system.
