Do you really need an announcement?

Its A dead system cos they have stopped making new Lenses for it ... and stopped development of new ones also ...

Where was the announcement to this?

Vague talk is cheap, and hints are meaningless.

Lets look at what has happened with 4/3"

  • 20 months ago (9/2010) Last 4/3 body........................E5 (a redo of the E3)

  • 39 months ago (2/2009) Last 4/3 body from a new design.....................E620

  • 42 months ago (11/2008) Last 4/3 lens based on an existing lens...14-54mm II

  • 48 months ago (5/2008) Last 4/3 lens from a new design..................9-18mm

This is a dead system, whether you got an official announcement or not.

Here's how the living DSLR systems are doing during the same time period (48 months):

  • Nikon -- 15 DSLR bodies and 26 DSLR lenses

  • Canon - 14 DSLR bodies and 21 DSLR lenses

  • Sony --- 20 DSLR and SLT bodies and 13 DSLR lenses

  • Pentax -- 7 DSLR bodies and 13 DSLR lenses
