Re: Olympus Statement About Fourthirds and Micro Fourthirds

I really hope that the success of the Micro stuff has inspired them to try the 43rds arena again. It really is a strange situation but it is like the micro 43rds stuff is a trojan horse into the market, and the olympus brand is improving and there might be opportunities to turn micro consumers into DSLR consumers.

Buying an expensive lens I can use on 2 bodies is not a bad thing, especially when it is SHG lens.

I just hope that

'Direction-wise, we'd like to produce products for Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds within this year. Because we have to provide a product for users with SHG and HG lenses. And there are people using E400, 500 and 600-series DSLRs, we have to provide products for them to keep enjoying their photography.'

means they are releasing a camera to use with the SHG lenses with considerable R&D and is an aggressive return to the DSLR market, but I could be delusional with hope.
