Earlier in this thread, I said that I didn't believe there were going to be any new 4/3 stuff from Olympus.

And today at the rumormonger website:

The Japanese news site Sponichi Annex (translation here) just published story about Olympus:

They report that Olympus will soon announce a new strategy for the digital camera business. And in short they will heavily reduce their investments in DSLR and compact camera development and focus their efforts on Mirrorless products. The exact word used by the Japanese news site is “reduce” investments. How far Olympus will “reduce” the DSLR business has yet to be seen. Olympus also had to lower the earnings forecast. The overall camera sales were down 28% in one year.

To me, this means 1 maybe 2 bodies tops. Not nothing. And a $1300-$1500 weathersealed body with all the bells and whistles of the OMD would satisfy a lot, I mean a lot of users.
