    As a long time OM, XA, and Pen cameras user.
    This is a sad realization.

    Sayonara, Mr. Maitani.

    I remember the day I met him at Olympus camera Corp. when it was in Woodbury NY. He didn't speak a word of english but was happy to etch his name into the back of my OM-2. John

    Indeed. This is very sad news. His legacy of designing some of the best 35mm cameras ever will truly live on forever.

    Rest in peace Mr. Maitani.
