Re: The name E-7 implies an OVF and 4/3 SLR mount, so no m4/3 lenses

I am limiting my hopes to a body that provides good AF with both lens systems and an EVF, but still compact and mirrorless, so no OVF.

It would also stand to reason that such modularity would satisfy this particular interest too.

Not quite: note the word "compact" which I have now emphasized.

Though I am not against Olympus offering some photographers a solution that involves an OVF and thus a mirror box, but that would not be as compact as a mirror-less, m4/3 system with a sensor offering hybrid AF (PDAF+CDAF). So for me (as a happy E-M5 user) an option with EVF and no OVF is better.
Smaller lenses, better in low light, more telephoto reach:
you can have any two at one time.
