Nothing new here, the situation is as muddled as it has always been.

M. Gaucher, of Oly France, has simply put a date on Watanabe-san's statement last fall that 4/3 glass will be supported with fast AF in a future release. Same as the head of Oly Spain said a few weeks ago:

The date is by the end of 2013.

Not a peep from any of them on what form it will take. Not a peep on whether it will be 4/3 only, or both M43 and 4/3. Could be a reworked E5, could be an EM5 scaled up with larger buttons/grip and PDAF on sensor, could be something in between.

The only thing that is known for sure is: 4/3 glass will get a modern body and state of the art sensor. And that's good news, regardless of what form it takes.

Sort of brings back childhood memories of waiting for Christmas, doesn't it? You know something nice is coming, you just don't know how nice it will be. And the days pass sooooo slowly....
