A lot of big companies have felt that way when a new technology started nibbling around their ankles... sometimes they're perfectly right to dismiss it, and sometimes they're not.

Speaking of, I just got a bright idea for what I'd do if I were Olympus or Panasonic.  Start working, in a quiet back-burner way, on full-function adapters for C and N lenses.  If someday Micro Four Thirds starts to become a dominant mount at a consumer level, it might go a long way toward making the system usable for pros if they had a painless way to transition their major glass investments.
