*Name of this forum changed to include "four-thirds" system*

  1. Howdy Olympus users,

    Due to multiple frequent requests, I have changed the name of this forum to include the Four-Thirds system. While
    is not an Olympus only creation, Olympus is the main player on the scene and has made an effort to make it's
    older gear usable on their four-thirds cameras. And with the upcoming "micro four-thirds" system, there will
    likely be a lot to talk about.

    If, in the future, the four-thirds conversations start to dominate (particularly of the non-Olympus variety), we
    will consider making a four-thirds specific forum. But for now, I'm hoping that this change will give this forum
    a little shot-in-the-arm and encourage some good Olympus based conversations.

    (My father's OM-1 was my first SLR. So I have a soft spot for Olympus.)
  2. Josh,

    My first 35mm is an OM-1 as well, just converted to Oly E510. Like the system for it's size (small hands, hate to lug
    heavy equipment) and commitment to image precision. Look forward to hearing more about the 4/3 format.

  3. Wouldn't it be better to create a new forum for 4/3 ? To me it would seem more logical, because 4/3 is not only Olympus. This way you are mixing two completely different systems in this forum section...
  4. There are not nearly enough 4/3 posts to create it's own forum, olympus is the main player in the 4/3 system, and the olympus forum does not get that many posts on it's own anyway. As I said above, I hope this will give the Oly forum a little "shot in the arm".

    Bravo, Josh!

    I think it's good that there is finally a forum with "Four-Thirds" in the title. Finally all the Olympus, Panasonic and Leica users of Four-Thirds equipment will at least see a name in the photo.net forum list that they can use together and share information through.

    With micro-Four-Thirds coming up, I expect the traffic to increase and diversify with more Panasonic users as well.

    Good job!
