well that might give some realy realy nice synergy, sonys sensor, olys ibis, sonys body, olys weatherproofing/ruggedness... sonys live view... olys raw/jpeg engine. not sure about boths c-af, but oly hg/shg and sony zeiss glass are both more than ok.

The same applies for the PS/Enthusiast stuff, both make nice gear.

Heck i liked my Minolta A2, before it was swallowed by konica and ended up in sony.... Still have it (and should sell it now only collecting dust).

so will not mind to see that one happening...

Olympus: E-3, 12-60SWD, EX25,EC20, FL50R, 50-200SWD http://www.flickr.com/photos/iverhaar

But what are the negatives? Such as possible loss of OPTICAL viewfinder!

I do not have the answers, but this bomb shell news alters my view of reality.

Does "Oly-Sony" change everything?

No, people ready too much into this. From an investment standpoint it is was investment from Sony, where one of the main arms of profit is their investing arm.

The two companies are separate, this doesnt mean Olympus engineers can pop into sonys part bins and root around for parts... After the investment it was announced they would collaborate on some elements in imaging, if they were to take that collaboration further it would mean large restructuring. And since Nex is the less developed less supported line, I would honestly see it go before m43rds.
