Printing Directly from Cameras

A reader writes:

I'm considering buying a Canon Pixma iP5000 printer but am told
it will print directly only from cameras with PictBridge, which
means it won't work with my relatively new Olympus camera. For
non-PictBridge cameras, you first have to move the photos to
your computer. Am I missing something? I would think that any
printer would be designed to be backward-compatible to work
with older cameras.
