What we have is, unfortunately, those people who want to see updated versions of Olympus dslrs, resolutely preferring OVFs, facing the near inevitability that such a thing will not happen. The issue those people need to face up to is they represent a pretty small percentage of the customer base as to mean that meeting their request may not be financially viable for Olympus.

Some people operate cameras. Others use them to create images. There is a difference.

I could face up to it a lot faster if Olympus would stop beating around the bush and just tell us what they are developing in clear language. I understand that those of us who want to see an new e-7-ish camera with OVF are a very small minority and that it isn't in Oly's financial interests to pursue the 4/3 line any more. I got that bit a long time ago.

That said, I think that Olympus has told us what they are working on and in plain enough language... by the end of 2013 there will be a new camera from Olympus that is capable of using m4/3 and 4/3 lenses and that the 4/3 lenses will be used by way of an adapter. The new camera will also provide fast AF with the 4/3 lenses. They haven't said anything about OVF vs EVF but I can't figure out how they would get a mirror in such a camera.
