I'm afraid Olympus has decided that the original 4/3 has been very unprofitable and they seem traumatized by it - their new stuff seems to be the exact opposite of big, fast, weather sealed and telecentric.

Great Pen and OM-D sales will hardly convince them otherwise, and I must agree that the original 4/3 is history. They made the 4/3-m4/3 adapter and as far as they are concerned I think the matter of transition has been settled.

I would expect them to cut the production of 4/3 lenses, rather than introduce more bodies. The fact that they cancelled all 4/3 bodies except E-5 speaks volumes.
