If Olympus wants a "pro" camera, they need to have fast, high quality zoom and telephoto lenses.  They already have these for the FT and not yet for the mFT.  Even it they developed a 300mm, 2.8 lens or a 90-250mm 2.8 zoom for the mFT, the lenses would still be very large and heavy.  Being able to use the current FT lenses would seem like a significant advantage at least for now while they develop fast pimes for the mFT.  I personally prefer the Olympus FT lens to the Panasonic mFT options, since Olympus cameras do not correct for lens distortion.  I also fear that future Panasonic cameras may not to continue to support software correction of distortion for current lenses as the number of lenses mutiply.  I have had too may printers and scanners which are no longer supported by upgrades of operating system software to be confident of future support.
