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. ...

Olympus did not say that. That m4/3 and 4/3 hybrid line of thinking was postulated by the bloggers who interpreted a very short statement from Olympus. Questions about a hybrid or adapter were not answered by Olympus. Read the articles more carefully, all 4 versions of the same speculation, and notice where Olympus is quoted and what is speculation by the authors.

Olympus said they are developing a camera that will optimize the use of 4/3 lenses and that camera will be released by the end of 2013. Nothing more.

Maybe a little more:

Ogawa: "Of course, we're reaching a high level of performance with our Micro Four Thirds mirrorless product, but we are still not satisfied with these at the professional level. That's why we think we still need the E-System to satisfy professional photographers."
