On the online photo forums and groups, some are excited by the new OM-1 while others get caught up in arguing spec details and full frame this versus not full frame that. The discussions are, frankly, boring.

Thomas Stirr’s observation, though, is that this is not necessarily the camera for a studio or perhaps wedding photographer. Instead, this is a camera for those who value “speed, durability, portability and weatherproofing”.
