Does anyone think that Olympus will offer an OMD camera with a 24 mp or greater sensor in the near future?

Yes, in contrast to the two persons who already replied, I think it is perfectly reasonable to expect a 24 MP (or thereabout) sensor in an MFT camera in a reasonably near future, say within the next year or so.

I think we'll see at least a 20MP sensor in Olympus' next E-M product cycle.

Currently Olympus mFT tracking ability has been less than stellar, but clearly strides are being made, the E-M1 presenting a solid improvement, and the GH4 apparently having leap-frogged it.

With the 300mm f4 telephoto on the horizon in early 2015, and the E-M5 (Olympus' true standard bearer, having saved the company's bacon) overdue for an updgrade likely to include another big step forward in focus tracking, a whole new horizon opens up: APS-C competitive BIF and sports photography.  What goes with this territory is the need to crop, often heavily, to best capture you're subject.  16MP simply no longer cuts it in this market.

And when entry level $500 DSLR's (D3100) come with 24MP and decent focus tracking, it's imperative that mFT stay in the game.
