" Well , Sony and Olympus had just formed a "strategic alliance" with Sony pouring money into ailing Olympus -- which likely means Sony is going to be smothering Oly at one point down the line.

Let's hope that will not affect Olympus M43 camera/lens output, although I cannot see any real reason for Sony to push the Micro 4/3 format for Oly, does anyone? "

As a partnership, it should be of benefit to both companies to thrive. I envisage Sony extending it's NEX line to predominance of the high end of mirrorless cameras. Olympus may cancel it's OMD line and concentrate in making the most saleable m43 PEN products. With the Sony cash injection and assistance, they might leave Panasonic in the dust. Panasonic might become the real loser here.
