On the future of the Olympus E-Series DSLR

"Watanabe: On the new product plans to disclose here, E Series, a double-digit model number and (E-5 and E-30), we will certainly continue to introduce products, E system is certainly some of the features PEN series can not be achieved. The E series of triple-digit products, we will consider the use of PEN series replaced. PEN series of lenses we will continue to research and development, and 4 / 3 system lenses will not interrupt research and development. PEN series of shots that we think are not enough, the recent focus may be on the PEN series."

Q. 2) Will future E-Series Digital SLRs be Micro-Four-Thirds based or Four-Thirds based with optical viewfinder?
A. 2) E-X and E-XX DSLRs will continue as long as mirrorless systems can't fulfill SLR users demand. We don't know when we will have technologies that will be able to substitute this camera class."
