I can't imagine that many with top-end m43 Olympus or Panasonic bodies, and a few lenses, will be convinced to switch to a bottom end Canon DSLR, even if it is as small as an OMD. Interesting development though. I'd be interested to see if they've found a clever way of reducing the size of the mirror box.

I don't think Canon care that much about winning over people with top-end M43 bodies and a few lenses. They represent only a very tiny number compared to all those Canon owners, some of whom might wander off to other brands. Canon is concentrating on rounding up any such Canon DSLR owners. And being to AF acceptably using DSLR lenses gives it an advantage compared to some other brands.

The only problem is that soon they will discover that there is a problem as Aleo mentioned, large lenses, even for native lenses.
