call it as you will, but being one to always look at the positive I see no difference in the Oly announcement to a car manufacturer stating they wil continue to produce cars with V8 motors. Who in their right mind could interpret such a statement as meaning they will always come in the same package as previous models or with the same features.

Give us a break.

"Digital single lens reflex" is clearly not a mirrorless camera.  Olympus seem to be saying that they will continue to produce updates to at least the E-x line.

Eventually they need to figure out whether to revive standard FT (a lot of drawbacks there) or try to move the "One beautiful system" from aspiration to reality.

(I would guess that they can get PDAF working now, but that it isn't even close to being good enough compared to the dedicated system in DSLRs.  That is the performance issue that will hold back 'merging' the standard FT system with Micro FT.)
