The death of Oly has been over exaggerated in the past but times have changed and it just feels different this time. 4/3 is dead in the water. By and large, consumer p&s are gone from store shelves, replaced by Panasonic & Samsung models (go to Costco or any major box store and look for Oly... there are none).

Hmmm..maybe not around your way - but in the UK and rest of Europe Olympus P&S cameras feature strongly in all consumer electronic outlets as well as dedicated camera shops. 4/3 SLR cameras may well have bitten the dust - but the compact and ultracompact section is going strong. XZ-1 probably the most popular high-end model for years.
