Historicity - can't find fault with anything you've said. There is no reason for a current Oly user to panic and try to unload their equipment. None at all. BUT, the other side of the coin is: if a user is ready now to make a new purchase, it's tough to ignore this direction. Especially if the 'buyer' is like most people today - buy new gear out of desire not out of actual need. The type of buyer that buys a new body every 2 years or so because they want to and can afford it. It's like me with cars - as much as I'd like to be different, I find myself trading in my car and buying a new one every 3-4 years or so. It's just the way I am. Lots of people are like that with camera bodies - they see the latest and greatest and they want one. It isn't right or wrong, just the way a lot of people are. But, I see lenses holding their value for quite some time - even if DSLRs go out in Olympus land - so no need to unload them now - they'll sell just fine 2 years from now.
