Re: About the last paragraph...

Agree.  Actually, maybe Sony could have refused to sell sensors to Olympus, or charged a very high price, but I don't think they can do so now, as this is apparently covered in those agreements they made to share technology.

In short, the medical imaging business is more profitable and more important to them.  So it's not in their interest to compete too agressively against m4/3.  With some degree of co-operation there with both Panasonic and Sony, the other two biggest players in mirrorless so far, I think Olympus's m4/3 cameras will be profitable enough to survive.
