This conversation pretty much boils down to 2 points of view, as we keep seeing over and over:

1.) I've made my investment in Olympus four thirds equipment.  I'm very happy with the results I'm getting.  I'm hoping that Olympus at the end of 2013 comes through with a new camera that will accommodate and maximize my zuiko glass.  There's no rush to make any changes.

2.) I feel like Olympus abandoned me by dropping four thirds and focusing on micro four thirds.  I'm disappointed that I can't use my Zuiko lenses to their best advantage on micro four thirds cameras.  My investment continues to drop.  From the sidelines, I continue to see improvements in technology by other manufacturers.

So there will be those who hold on, and those who continue to depart.  Bottom line is that a camera is only a tool.  Each of us has to determine how much of a difference a new tool will make, and the effect that will have on our pocket book.

I feel very tied to Olympus, as I've been using their cameras for over 10 years, quite happily.  So I will continue to use my E-30.  At the same time, I'm considering buying a second system to compliment what I'm doing.
