The question is does it make sense for Olympus to support 2 mount systems. Let's face it. Micro 4/3 is different than 4/3 mount. 4/3 lenses can be used on Micro 4/3 cameras with a adapter. But I don't see the reverse being true. Is it a good strategy for one company to have 2 mount systems.

Personally, I don't see Olympus support 2 systems equally down the road. I see them phasing out 4/3 and concentrating on micro and make it niche system that offers compactness, live view and image quality close to APS-C. I think it would be better for Olympus to transform 4/3 with this new system. Frankly Olympus can't compete with Canon and Nikon DSLRs with their 4/3, which is not so much smaller compare to the smallest Nikon and Canon.
