As the company responsible for initiating both the Four Thirds System and Micro Four Thirds System standards, Olympus Imaging Corp. will continue to develop and enhance the product lineup for both standards to meet the diverse needs of our customers.

Marketing statements are intentionally vague. This does not say there will be another dslr 4/3 body. "develop and enhance" can mean nothing more than continuing to add partner companies, and coming out with products that can be used on existing 4/3 dslrs. (such as the FL-600R Flash).

The naivety of trying to use such marketing statements to justify speculation regarding what products will actually result from Olympus's intent to "continue to develop and enhance the product lineup for both standards to meet the diverse needs of our customers" is charming, but misplaced.

I am Afraid your right.   When you go on the Olympus website it is very hard to find anything about the 4/3rd product  it is like 4/3rd product does not exist.

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