I don't understand why Olympus hasn't come out with a micro flagship cam yet. When micro was announced, I thought Olympus would be working on the high end of m4/3rds and Panasonic on the lower end. Instead it's the opposite. Panasonic seems to be calling the shots.

Hi Pete,

I think that a micro flagship from Olympus could be a real winner, especially if they produce a couple of good quality lenses {a definite Olympus strength} and a better level of AF and functionality for FT lenses would attract a lot of potential users.

I really do like mFT and have bought into it with a GF1 and GH2 but overall the lenses are pretty mediocre with typically slow zooms dominating the releases. I think this is a key area on which Olympus could differentiate itself from Panasonic who seem to have been doing most of the driving in mFT.
