First, this is already pretty old news, but still thanks for reminding it.

Second, most of this philosophy seems to have vanished at the time when Olympus were about half way through 4/3.

I hadn't seen this before, what a great read! He was a genius, but never really a corporate man, he was more an irritant that pushed Olympus to create things they would not have. Such genius is by definition an individual trait, and sadly I'm not sure would be possible in the current environment even if they had a modern Matiani. It's too much of a corporate world now.

The current Pen EP series has always struck me as a rather poor-looking pastiche of the original Pen F. Hopefully Oly can rediscover that quality in an inspired way for a high-end M4/3 series.
