Some very nice ones here (http://www.olympus.co.jp/jp/fun/wallpaper/camera/)

I wonder if there was a 'Pen for Women': Link (http://www.olympus.co.jp/jp/fun/wallpaper/camera/dl/penEED_01Wa.jpg)

I hadn't visited for awhile, man there are a lot more now! It's interesting that they are constantly adding tasty shots of vintage cameras.

1. I want hands-on access to their equipment archive.
2. Can the rest of the company (i.e. product development) get in sync with these guys and design stuff true to the heart of Olympus?

I use the Ace wallpaper on my machine at home. It's a bad idea for me to do that, but I do.

Wow,

Great site, I down loaded about a dozen images. I like to get my hands on some of the cameras!

I got the Pen F 1963 image. Sweeeet. Time to go fondle my Pen F!

edit: ooooo, the black Pen F is gorgeous!

Ouch...makes me kick myself even harder for letting go of my OM-3. (Galfriend at least has her OM-2S...)

Edit...see the Pen-series one with Maitani signing his name (with a Pelikan Souverän 1000, no less)?

Something for more than one kind of "Pen" fan.

Oh crap ... that ultra/wide Zuiko wallpaper just lit my gas pilot. Dammit, Rich ...

Dammit. It's like to invite an alcoholic-in-denial on some wild party. I already have Om1n/28mm/35mm/50mm/135mm and 35SP. Why I look at this Pen F? Will it improve my photography? I doubt. I just want it.

What is it about the Pen F - sweet! I must have one...

...OM lenses could be used through adapter... I need to say 100 times to myself "I don't need another camera". Hope it helps.

Seriously, the Pen-FT does improve my experience in photography. I never thought that a default portrait orientation can be so much fun to take a picture with. Plus scanning a roll of 24 and getting 48-50 images from it just plain sick :) not to mention fun!

Furthermore... the sharpness and color saturation even from the "standard" 38mm/1.8 lens is just astounding. Let me see if I can find a sample that Trius hasn't seen yet ;)

This is very impresive ... I am in thoughts : I need quiet rangefinder, with speed lenses, like Yashica RF-s ... I can't understand: why Olimpus doesn't think about
digital or analog RF like 70's RF cameras?:confused:
Alex Majoli have done gooood job with C-5o5o ...

Trius

If Olympus has a Majoli who can produce prize-winning work with a C-5050, why would they spend millions of $$ on developing a digital RF, new lens line, plus the marketing expense? Here's a Magnum photographer who shoots in the RF style and uses a "prosumer" digicam for a lot of important work. What's better marketing than that?

Don't get me wrong, I would love to see it, and a designer such as Maitani (or get Isao Edatsune to come on over) could pull it off from a technical standpoint. But it's not going to happen.

Now, if I could get a digicam with decent sensor performance, a kick-butt zoom lens and a mode that allows me to use the controls in manual mode (i.e, all the auto stuff turned off or custom settings accessible through one-button click), and a good optical VF, I could "settle" for that. Barrett would say the C-8080 fits that bill, and I trust him, so I may end up with that one. When the time comes, there may be other options so we'll see.

I believe that your words are true ... but there is no C - 5o5o and C - 8o8o to buy...
Few months ago I have bought Fujifilm S 65oofd on credit ... it has good sensor, 28mm wide angle( I don't need lenses over 1oomm ), but its largest aperture is 2.8 :bang: . they have invested in DSLR's and we know that Oly has BIG problems with high ISO noisy shots...

Thanks for the awesome link. The cutaway of the OM1 on Pg. 10 is the winner for me.

It's time to bump this thread. Lot's of new Oly fans in RFF.

I haven't visited this site in a while:

http://www.olympus-global.com/en/fun/wallpaper/camera/index.cfm

Lot's of new wallpapers to download. Plus they are featuring Mr. Maitani in a Pen article to the right side of the page.

Wow!! What a fantastic find! I currenly have the one with the silver and black Trip 35s as my backdrop. I also especially like the ones of the M-1 and the ones of the black OM4Tis. I struggle with whether either the OM1 or OM4Ti is my favourite SLR of all time. I have an OM4Ti, but in terms of being a mould-breaker it has to be the one that started it all: the OM1. Sold mine to buy my 35SP.
