I've been of the opinion and remain of the opinion that there will possibly be two new cameras introduced to follow the E-1 and E-3 legacy. Logic tells me that FourThirds is dead. If I was the product manager at Olympus I'd say "merge" the technologies and go to one common lens platform. This means that the new camera MUST be modular in some form. It must take both legacy FourThirds and Micro FourThirds. Introducing just a FourThirds E-3 type of body doesn't sell lenses. Who will be buying more FourThirds lenses for a dying platform and why buy Micro FourThirds lenses that wouldn't fit?
This makes a fair bit of sense.

It also makes me sad.
