Hi all,  

Below I've forwarded a portion of a post made by Bob Shell on the Pocketcam-L
list about his perspective on Olympus.  For those unfamiliar, Bob is the
editor of a rather large-sized magazine that hangs out the end of my mailbox
and is filled with really tiny print ads.  

With permission, of course........
