That selective reading... Here, let me help you move beyond one expression you have stuck on (we'd like):

"we have to provide a product for users with SHG and HG lenses. And there are people using E400, 500 and 600-series DSLRs, we have to provide products for them to keep enjoying their photography.'

Here, he says "we have to" instead of "we'd like." Read it however you want but for the most of readers it means "we know what's expected and intend to deliver." Then he proceeds to say:

'For those users AF speed is important and a suitable finder is necessary. And also it needs to be the right size... We have to provide those things to benefit those users. One of the benefits of DSLR is continuous autofocus. In this respect, we have to promise total AF performance in future.'... ''They already know image quality from the OM-D. Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds sensors are the same size, so they can imagine that.'

All above is clear indication of 4/3 body in works, distinctive from m4/3 one. Notice thnat I had to quote practicaly whole "The future of Four Thirds" part - that's how much you chose to ignore, while latching onto single we'd like, which btw is a)product of translation, b)normal corporate-speak and c)normal expression of intention.

Then again, for people who say "a statement is not a camera yet" nothing but actual camera already in the store will suffice - they will point to any statement of intention that hasn't materialized thereafter. For such people, to make it clear - yeah, this interview and thread discussing it is a discussion of intentions, promises and not actual physical product yet. Do you suggest people shouldn't discuss statements by company officials because those statements might not materialize?
