With n/c half hearted attempts to date to go smaller their users are getting despondent especially the APS-C group. There is a whole market out there waiting to be snapped up but it will take trust as I think a lot of trust has been lost lately in the camera market. For Olympus to kill the 4/3 I think would be a marketing disaster. To continue would be saying we are here for the long haul and we are a camera company.

as Nikon APS-C user and knowing the lie of the land a little bit i think it would be a mistake to go for the APS-C market, most users over there who are thinking of changing systems seem to be going with either FF or m4/3rds. Most of the despondent people are the ones waiting for the D300s replacement which probably won't happen. They need a bang up to date body with a sensor that betters the OMD and be right at the front tech wise, what it doesn't need is a limp wristed model with muddled marketing. Regardless of this it is nice to see a clear statement regarding the future.
