It's just that certain people don't want to believe it

According to the latest Amateur Photographer (AP) magazine, Olympus losses nine months to Dec 2012 doubled from those of the previous year. AP notes Olympus's aggressive cost cutting strategy that will lead to a 7% decrease in their workforce by 2014. AP also notes that Olympus implied that they will be reducing their DSLR presence.

I would love to be proved wrong, but at the moment I still think the end of 2013 will be the countdown to backtracking on this forum rather than an E7.

I am not sure if Olympus knows what it is doing at this point.

I'm sure they know exactly what they are doing, it's just that some folks are not listening, or perhaps don't want there to be another Olympus DSLR as it would mean that their switch to Nikcanon and 4/3 lens dump was a mistake . . . . kind of like doomsday prophets being angry that the world didn't end according to their prediction.

Olympus denies reports that it is ceasing DSLR production
