but, the focus speeds and big buffers are lacking for action, so Canon and Nikon dominate when there is movement that must be captured to earn $

Yes, Olympus could do a lot there. If they can get the high speed performance to a level comparable to Canon and Nikon, it would offer a great alternative for sport/wildlife photographers.

I would certainly consider it if I were in the market for a longer lens. With Canon, going beyond 400mm is extremely expensive. Olympus is not necessarily cheaper, their 300/2.8 being similar in price to the Canon version, but with a 2x TC and the crop factor Olympus does offer more reach in a more compact package.

If Canon doesn't come up with a 7DmkII, and Olympus does come up with a high performance E-7 (and I think they should be capable of that), then it might become something to consider as well.
