Olympus needs to hire expert marketing people for their respective countries. Apparently what works in Japan isn't working in the U.S. and other markets.

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.

The money is in the PENs.
Oly does not need to make that high-end cam themselves.

Simply take the Panny GH2, add other firmware ("Oly colors") and BLM-5 batteries and rebrand it to Olympus.

Ok a problem may be antishake - but then oly has to recommend Panny lenses - prelimiary ok.
