100mm Telemacro Removed from E-System Roadmap
Sep 3, 2010

According to PhotographyBLOG, Olympus has refreshed its lens roadmaps for both Micro Four Thirds and Four Thirds. The MFT stuff is nothing surprising, but the FT or "E-system" roadmap no longer has the 100mm macro on it. In fact it only shows existing lenses, which prompted PBlog to comment that it "makes one wonder why it is still called a roadmap".

This does not NECESSARILY mean there will be no more Four Thirds lenses (there might be some that they want to keep secret for now), but it does seem to indicate the 100mm macro has been abandoned. (Sorry if this is no news to you - it was to me.)
