I think Olympus and Panasonic will be the first to go.  The smart phone camera is eating it's way up the ladder.

Point and shoots  then MFT then Aspc.

The manufactures know this.  This is why they are trying to differentiate themselves from the cheap small sensor devices.  I think some will even try to produce phone like cameras to compete.

Olympus takes a tiny camera makes it big slaps the word pro on it and charges an arm and leg.  Sony going Full Frame in a big way as are the other manufactures who are making the push to full frame full quality.

The writing is on the wall and I think Olympus will be the first to fall.  It maybe as early as next year for them.
