Alas, if you translate this interview from marketing-speak to plain english, we might just as well abandon all hope of a GM1 challenger from Olympus:

Olympus interview by Blunty

" Pens are for upgraders and [=?] enthusiasts[:-S] and later they may want to try the 'dslr experience' "

Thats not how I translated that interview. What I got was

OM-D is for traditional enthusiasts, people that have a DSLR or would have bought a DSLR.

PEN is for a new type of customer that wants a smaller, easier to use camera with "big sensor" image quality.

So the GM1 fits right into this definition of what Oly see the PEN range is for. The main restriction on a Oly competitor to the GM1 is IBIS. Panasonic already had to do some very unconventional things just to fit a mechanical shutter into a camera as small as the GM1, I don't see Oly squeezing IBIS into such a small space as well.

Whereas this photoshopped together E-P7 has an icicles chance in hell of ever appearing.
