Oly. is in trouble...will they survive?

I think the real target is the Fuji X-10, the runaway success of the moment. Barring a few disgruntled owners not happy with Fuji shoddiness. The new LX's formula must be to keep the size/price small and that means no EV. Keep a 24mm lens but 100mm would be the limit. A Sony sensor, yes by all means. Everyone else is using them. Is there enough room there for a 1" sensor? Flip-up/down screen like NEX? Sure, but how to keep the $400-$500 price point? Maybe a couple of touchscreen features...maybe no. And get back to the LX3 +++ quality.
