Re: No way does Sony have 51% share of Olympus. That would have been

Yes, Sony has something like 11% of Olympus, but 51% of the Sony Olympus Medical Solutions joint venture.

The key point here is that as part of their agreements with Olympus, they also agreed to provide sensors and share technologies for the digital camera business as well.  So really what it comes down to is, NEX is less important to Sony than this medical imaging business,  and probably also less important to Sony than m4/3 is to Olympus.

And with that support from Sony, I think m4/3 is a good bet to survive.  In co-operation, Sony & Olympus could be the dominant players in both CSC and medical imaging.
