EM10 strong rumor on IBIS

Not sure if anyone else saw, but strong rumor on the IBIS in the upcoming EM-10 being only 3-axis.

I kind of have to say, WTF Olympus!

Sure, product differentiation and all that, but I don't want to have to pay $1,500 for the E-M1 if I want a better camera, with 5-Axis IBIS in it. Let alone I do NOT want or need most of the pro features on the E-M1...especially the extra weight and size. I love the size, weight, grip, etc on my E-M5. I'd just like either the upgraded IBIS of the E-M1, or heck, carry over the current from the E-M5, along with the nicer VF-4 viewfinder, updated imaging engine and a few of the other nits of the E-M1.

I know almost any move will make someone mad, but I think this is a particular bad move on Olympus part as it means the only way to get a "prosumer" Olympus m4/3 is to basically step up to their fully pro E-M1 (including pro in price). The E-M5 was a nice prosumer body and the E-M1 a nice pro body, but now there will effectively be a pro body and a low end consumer body with this move.

Hopefully either they reverse course, or the E-M10 is really the entry level OM-D EM line and a true E-M5 replacement is coming a bit later in the year.
