That would be suicide. Unless they are allowed (unlikely since there was no announcement) to join the L-mount group. Panasonic has video as a selling point and is bigger. Olympus should just stay behind and develop compact and affordable M43 cameras, and only have Fuji as the competitor while others concentrate on FF. Scrap the E-M1 line and survive in the $1700-and-under market.🌱

Scrap the EM1 line? I get that people want them to update their midrange cameras, and I sincerely hope they do soon. But to get rid of the top line would be to concede defeat in regards to m43 being a 'pro' level system (whatever that means). The EM1-II is a technical marvel, with features either copied or still yet to be implemented by other manufacturers. They need to continue to push the envelope, it's what they're good at. The market will be there if they continue to innovate. It's not an either/or proposition. They can (and should) have camera bodies from entry level to pro level, as they do now.
