Panasonic will likely move their camera business into the video business, rather than eliminating it. Nevertheless, they will increasingly emphasize video in their cameras and eliminate many of their poor performing models.

Both Panasonic and Olyus need to pricectheir cameras and lenses more competitively, to gain market share. They have excellent products now, but prices are still too high. I'm a dslr user loking into the OM10 and GX7 as interesting options, but when I start adding prices of lenses, ouch!
