Olympus not replacing low-end DSLRs

http://photorumors.com/2010/10/11/olympus-has-no-plans-to-replace-the-e-620-high-end-pen-camera-expected/

"We do not have concrete plans to replace the E-620 and other recent SLRs. The entry level SLR class can be completely replaced by the Pen system in terms of performance."

I think this is short-sighted. Your low-end purchasers provide the marketplace for lenses and other accessories, and they may migrate up in the future. Furthermore it sends a negative signal to anyone considering 4/3rds (SLR, not micro).
