Doesn't actually say 4/3 mount body, but ...
In reply to sderdiarian, Feb 2, 2013

The comments are about bodies that make 4/3 (SLR) lenses fully functional, with good continuous AF, etc, as well as lenses for owners of existing 4/3 bodies. One option consistent with what Terada said is:

1) an m4/3 body with PDAF in-sensor, thus fully supporting AF with adaptor-mounted 4/3 lenses.

2) one or more new 4/3 mount lenses, which become easier to justify if they also work perfectly well on m4/3 bodies via an adaptor. Fast telephoto lenses, which gain little in size, weight or optical performance from the shallower m4/3 lens mount and might benefit from ring-style SSW focusing motors, look like the best candidates.

What this would leave out is an optical viewfinder, but the plan could be based on sufficiemt improvements in next-generation EVFs. With 120fps already an option, lag could soon become insignificant.

Smaller lenses, better in low light, more telephoto reach: you can have any *two* at one time.
