Oly DSLR boss talks about the future of 4/3 !!!
Sep 22, 2010

Toshiyuki Terada, DSLR Product Planning Manager at Olympus, has been interviewed at Photokina by Fotopolis. You can watch the interview in English at the bottom of this article: http://www.fotopolis.pl/index.php?n=11570 but it buffers VERY slowly, so here's the most interesting part (my translation from the Polish text):

Q: What about smaller DSLRs? Are you going to release their successors?

A: We have no specific plans to release new 4/3 cameras in place of e-620 and other models. The entry-level DLSRs can be completely replaced with the Pen system from the performance point of view. Current users of non-professional DSLRs can migrate to the m4/3 together with their four-thrids lenses and can use them through an adapter or they can purchase the E-5 model. We have decided to have a product range with the PEN system and flagship DSLRs.
