Interesting news in a declining sales market thanks to those pesky smartphones. I still have my magnificent Olympus 40-150 Pro 2.8, a stellar lens. I've often drooled at the E-m1x for birding but at $4K ?!?!?!

Indeed, RIP Olympus. I have still two old Olympus compact cameras that use the XD cards.
