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

Instead improve sensor's SNR.

Develop along two lines! Different photographers have different needs, which is clearly obvious in this thread. If i were Olympus I would let the next EM-1 keep 16 Mp but improve AF and high ISO performance for those who want to shoot fast moving subjects and/or in bad light. And put a 24 Mp or greater MP count sensor in the next E-M5 for those who shoot landscape and architecture in good light and to whom resolution is important.

This is what other manufacturers do, not so obvious for APS-C models but it's a very clear strategy regarding FF: A7 contra A7r, D4 contra D800, 1Dx contra 5DIII. If Olympus want to be a serious alternative to FF for all kinds of photographers this is what they have to do.

So I believe Olympus will introduce a 24 or more MP camera quite soon. But that doesn't mean they sholuld abandon 16 MP. There is still a lot to do to improve C-AF, DR and high ISO performance on that sensor size.

But those of you who long for a 12 MP sensor will probably be disappointed.
