    And Craig Thompson's (sitting member of federal parliament) investigation has taken 3 years so far, with no end in sight.

    Taking longer than any Royal Commission has!
    I wonder why?
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    IMO, Olympus were the most innovative camera company of them all in the '60s and '70s.

    I agree with that Tom! So many once great companies are seeing the results of this money hungry, and money is more important than anything else attitude.

    Like most big corperations now days.. To top heavy. They all wont a big cut of the pie, with very little effort. In the end, something has to give. Whether is innovation as in Kodaks case. Or finance like Olympus.

    When is it going to stop
