What to do now (hint its not about Olympus)

Theres been a lot of discussion about Olympus giving its imaging division to JIP, and what going happen to it.

Quite a number of good guesses, but a huge amount of uncertainty, increased by the yet to be understood impact of COVID-19 on economies, demographics, and travel. The full impact  won't be known for another 6 months or so.

Some of us will buy more Olympus equipment, many won't, some will sell their gear and change systems.

A more useful question IMO is what are the other m43 players doing, and what products are being released.

Panasonic released the G100, and FZ1000II. (likely they knew this was coming). Are there any other small sensor products that have been hinted?

Yuonguo is on the verge of updating the YN450 Android camera with an M43 mount. Will this be China only or global? Has anyone tried the YN450? Any reviews?

Cosina should have released its Voigtlander 60mm f/0.95 Lens for M43 in April, what's happening here?

Laowa has released a 4mm fisheye and a 9mm ultrawide with m43 mounts. Any reviews, tests?
