Olympus OM1

Photoxels reminds us that back in 1972, Olympus introduced the dimunitive M-1 (later renamed OM-1) SLR and kind of revolutionized the SLR world.

Not only was it much smaller and lighter than the typical film SLR, but what captured the imagination of enthusiasts and professional photographers alike was that the OM-1 came with a complete system of lenses and accessories. Not a couple of lenses, but a complete system.

By doing so, Olympus signaled clearly that the OM-1 was a serious SLR worthy of consideration by advanced amateur and pro photographers.

Now Photoxels wonders whether Nikon is poised to introduce the compact mirrorless DSLR in March that may well revolutionize the DSLR world -- just like the OM-1 did.
