Not really surprising, I think the days of clacking mirrors flapping up and down are numbered for all makes, although the professionals and enthusiats will have to be dragged kicking and screaming, I have just replaced my E-410 wi an E-600 and love the quality from both. However, technology moves on and so will camera design. If a camera and lens system is designed that has the quality of sensor and optics to match a DSLR, the only reason for getting a DSLR is the amount of control you have over the settings. So all thats required is a quick and easy method of manual or semi automatic control.
Without the prism, mirror amd mechanism, the camera could be smaller, lighter and less liable to breakdown.
I am an ardent fan of Olympus DSLR but I feel things will move on, as they did with film when photographers hung on to the end.
