Something like an Olympus SLT camera that has a 4/3 lens mount, has a 4/3 sensor, and all the other Olympus features built in would really shake things up. And make it in two versions... one high end full featured weather sealed model like a SLT A77, and one entry level like a SLT A37.

For what it is worth, it seems to me the trick that Olympus needs to pull off, is getting from mirrorless being a second camera for the canikon crowd to the first camera--the pieces are there in terms of a decent mirrorless camera; some modularity with the grips; some decent m4/3rds lenses and some very fine 4/3rd lenses.  What has been missing is the seemless transition between the m4/3rds lenses and 4/3rds. That is the bridge that needs to be constructed.

So today, I am wondering town with the micro set-up and tomorrow, I have the same camera set up to go for wildlife/birding excursion.  One camera, many set ups and all first-rate and seamless.
