I doubt that an OM-5 will not be an all-manual SLR.

Do you know Olympus also makes microcasette recorders, most recently
digital voice recorders, and MO drives?  

BTY, Olympus has been making "Pearlcorders" for quite a while.  Their most
recent product is this digital voice recorder (D1000) which can record your
voice memo for 34 minutes on a 2MB miniature card.

I think Olympus can use the proposed software, "Photographer's Assistant"
as a sales tool for marketing their future/present OM cameras.  It would be
handy for photographers,  particularly for those thinking-types who like to
use manual-focus cameras.  Olympus can even make a generic Phographer's
Assistant as well as Olympus Assistant. 

I am going to put this on my personal wish list to Olympus anyway.
