Not exact words, but Olympus stated they would continue to support 4/3 lenses, now it was a bit ambiguous as they never did mention how? So I can only presume they meant with this latest body via an adaptor. Bit of a compromise if you ask me and DPReviews have already said 4/3 lenses are not focussing as fast as M/4/3 lenses on the EM-1. Not sure how accurate that is, so I will pass more judgement after a few more reviews.
Yes, I was wedded to a Rolleiflex system in the film days and stayed with that brand for 20 years, never let me down and they were so helpful if you had a problem. I ended up with their 35-mm SLR's with Zeiss lenses. Today, I'm not so loyal.

The writing was on the wall a year or so ago when Olympus was totally embarrassed by the disclosure of their, shall we say, less than ethical business practices. I read back then that this was common practise for Asian Companies, however, it was Olympus who got caught. We're fine now, but I wouldn't rule out takeover of Olympus by Sony, Nikon, or Canon, if only to eliminate what seems the most serious player in MFT. Nothing is forever, I just keep what I need on hand, and get rid of the rest before it loses its value. But for some reason, I don't trust Olympus, they strike me as a shady, underhanded company. I'll be thinking very hard on any future investments in kit.

Hi,

Those who have commented on staying with one brand, they call it "brand loyalty" are I believe correct. Canon go Nikon - Nikon go Canon! The days of brand loyalty with so much to choose from are gone.
I am not going to sell - instead I will stick with my Olympus DSLRs and lenses - but not out of loyalty, but until I can afford to change. No more interest in Olympus or their current or future products. Canon or Nikon? I have no idea, both types of user swear by their brand!
Maybe Nikon - but when it comes to puting the money down - it may be Canon!
Long way off, so no worries! Grin

There is not quite so much brand loyalty with M4/2, you have a choices, Olympus, Panasonic or both Smile

And plenty of people buy into this system to use alongside there Canon/Nikon DSLR`s and kit.
