This can't be said of Olympus' history i'm afraid and the reactions of some fanboy's here is comical as they tout how canikon will drop thier HIGHLY PROFITABLE userbase like a bad habbit anytime now. We know that isn't the case. Canikon remains a safe bet right now and well into the future for a photographer's needs and I wish I could say the same about olympus but i'm afraid I can't.

in this climate nothing is a safe bet

there is 'safer' within limitations, generally the competitive life of a body, but thats as far as it goes. Things are changing way too quickly to predict anything with any accuracy, and there are markets out there that will not care about the same things you do.

If sales = survival, those perceptions count for much, but seemingly have zip to do with performance criteria well chewed over here
