Default Should Olympus Micro Four Thirds and dSLR forums be merged?

In light of the announcement... ehem I mean leak of the EM-1 is it time to merge the two forums into one called "Olympus Mirror-less/dSLR" or just "Olympus Interchangeable Lens Cameras"?

Going to post this in the Olympus dSLR forum as well.

I in no way mean this to be a declaration of the death of the Olympus dSLR as that remains to be seen. I am more coming at this from the point that the two lines share the same sensor size and now share the same lens line although micro is not backwards compatible obviously.

Yeah, I agree. Heck, I'd like to see the Olympus and Panasonic combined into a "Fourthirds/Micro43" forum too. They are similar enough to have a look of good combined discussion, I think. And if fakeKodak and other companies ever get their acts together those camera could be a part too.

It is too soon to be merging the two at the present time IMO. While M43 is the growing type, there are still a lot of us who only use 4/3 equipment, and it is good to interact among those users. Most of us visit the m4/3 forums from time to time, and I can foresee the time for merger in the future, but I believe it is currently too soon for that now.

I don't post much but read regularly (both forums) so feel the need to chime in here:

Agree with Steven and Greg. While the sensor may be the same size, the two systems are different enough to warrant separate forums, imho.
