If Olympus goes it goes. Not the end of the world or necessarily the end of the technology. Most of the camera companies that ever existed are now out of business. As far as I know you can still buy a camera to make images. Except for a very few Professional level products, all digital cameras are consumer goods. They are intended to become obsolete and require replacement.

If you are a photographer, use'em up and enjoy what they can do. Camera bodies and lenses are not investments they are tools.

If you are a gear fetishist then buy something new and put it under glass. You will still be able to admire it for many years to come.
