Is it enough?

I'm a consumer of cameras... Olympus is a seller. I bought into Olympus DSLRs a few years ago because they provided what I needed at the time and appeared to provide a path forward.... I would like to see an E-50 that compared favorably to Pentax's K-5 or K-30 but there is none (not even on a map of any kind.) Spring is close and I'd like to consider a long macro for better working distance than my ZD50 but Sigma has left and Olympus never delivered. I'd like to see a 400mm f/5.6 to compete with Canon's or a 100-400mm but I don't see any of that in the near future for either 4/3 system ..... 4/3's has certain features that I would like for wildlife and close-up photography but I don't see that there's much interest in supplying those tools..... At some point one has to say enough and move on.. I'm close and while noting that Olympus DSLRs are still alive and maybe there will be one on the shelves tomorrow, that is not enough …. Spring is close.. ... I haven't left yet but I'm getting closer, much closer.....   Not pessimistic, not optimistic just looking at the shelves for systems that meet my desires and pondering whether I can afford to go ...
