Olympus's 4/3 DSLR does not make money for them. But M4/3 does.

yeah but thats probably because of how they did it. A reinvestment in a few lenses, and 1 body a year comparable to Ex and Exx would give them product exposure in both the Asian and western markets.

Look at Canon and Nikon, they are so quiet because if they join m4/3, that may be harmful to their conventional DSLRs.

I think the goal of Olympus and Panasonic's R&D on M4/3 is not to offer us consumers a lighter or whatsoever new system camera, but to BYPASS the fierce competition from C and N.

Best Regards.
