What Olympus actually promised:

Re: It is typical corpseak...but

The total thrust of what W's and the other top people have said has been quite explicit.  The big problem for them, apparently along with virtually all DSLR makers, is to find a way to at least reduce  the financial bleeding enough to pool the resources to complete and launch a new camera.

I suspect that the pretty positive response to the OM-D and its PL and PM brethren, and now the E-Pen 5, as well as the fixed lenses will help them to do that,

(BTW, did some of you happen to notice the great joy they apparently took in the 45f1.8's apparent success.  Seems to indicate that they are being much more vigilant and careful in their planning and marketing than they ever were before.)

For me, the appearance of the E-5, after all our doubts and hand-wringing, was a pleasant surprise. Experiencing all the small but very useful improvements that it incorporated was even more pleasant (as tends to be reflected in its retention of value.)

So, I remain optimistic.
