Heard pretty much the same thing from the Oly rep at Jessops in Canary Wharf. Not sure if anyone else on here was there yesterday. I had chat with him he said there will ALWAYS be a Oly pro grade DSLR and that it would be ugraded as usual. No E-620 upgrade though. The pen range is gonna shrink i.e. fewer models and targeted at the casual user, the OM-D model range will expand and would cover all the other user bases. Asked him why the 12-60mm m4/3 Zooms wasn't f2.8 and he said it was down to the size of the lens. He said they are companion systems not necessarily m4/3rds is replacing 4/3rds. Fast zooms like the Zuiko f2 won't be coming out in m4/3rds. He said the focus at the moment is on m4/3rds so they can offer a mature system than their competitors. Asked him about the one beautiful system and did that mean they were gonna drop m4/3 and 4/3 for another system. He said no that meant they are working on getting the two systems to be able to work together.
