    The predators are looking to pick up the pieces of the recent Olympus management debacle!

    However it could auger well for the future of Olympus camera division as two
    important Photographic business investors Fuji and Sony may now also have interests in Olympus.

    It should secure excellent sensor supplies for them and possibly innovation from Fuji? Japan has a long history of "incestuous" business relationships and they usually work very well.

    Could you imagine a new pro level m43 from Olympus with a sensor based on the RX100 design ending up in around 40MP?

    Compared with the tele-centric design of 43 and m43 lenses that would be a winner

    LOL, you must be thinking of Nikon, since Sony didn't release a high MP camera

    That would be terrible IMO. 40MP on a 4/3 sensor would mean large files with horrible diffraction. I'm happy the GH3 scales back the MP race and keep the reasonable resolution. Most people don't have the computing power to handle 40MP files.
