No more Four Thirds lenses

According to Olympus Europe's Miquel Angel García. Spanish interview:

http://www.quesabesde.com/noticias/entrevista-olympus-miquel-angel-garcia-photokina-2010,1_6792

The key part (my really bad translation, sorry):

We are not developing any more Four Thirds lens. We have the biggest catalog of digital lenses in the market and have met our goals. Our engineers are focused in trying to make a Micro Four Thirds lens system as good as the current Four Thirds system.

Also:

The famous 100mm macro. That lens is in the roadmap no mor, so we are not developing it. It's official.

The good news:

We can assure that in 2011 we are going to launch very interesting Micro Four Thirds lenses. Spectaculars for all levels, not only for the consumer market.
