Oly DSLR boss talks about the future of 4/3 !!!

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.
