micro 4/3 .. has Oly lost it?

So, do they plan on making an entirely NEW line of micro 4/3 lenses? .. with lens ranges similar to their existing line? So, people buying micro 4/3 cant use them on current 4/3??

Otherwise.. all the benefits of the new design are negated once you put current 4/3 lenses on it.. ie. smaller flange dist. but the depth is added back with the necessary adapter.

Where i can see this going is with a line of point and shoot cams with interchangeable lenses. but, there would need to be NEW lenses in order to take advantage of the new format.. otherwise, isnt the 420 small enough?
