If Samsung does not acquire Olympus I do not know who else would be interested. Panasonic does not really need Olympus. This could be the end of the road for Olympus.

Panasonic needs Olympus to maintain a broad platform for MicroFourThirds. I quess at Panasonic they aren't happy with the latest developments. MicroFourThirds hasn't yet got the strong basis Panasonic needs for further growth. Nikon and Fuji might see chances for their (forthcoming) mirrorless line though.
