Just picked this post up from a Olympus employee on the Olympus education group Facebook group
Whilst I cannot verify the authenticity of the post if it is genuine then maybe the fat lady ain't singing yet
Hello Everyone on this group. What a week we have had. As an Olympus employee, I must say that I have had better days! I have had a meeting with senior management and I have to say that I feel much more reassured now than I have been in the past 48 hours! Having JIP take over the camera division may be the shot in the arm that the OM-D line has been in need of in recent years. I cannot say very much as I don't know everything that is being said behind closed doors, but having seen the camera and lens road map for the next 6-8 months, I must say that I am feeling more assured than before. I don't know if I will still be involved in the future of Olympus cameras going forward after October, I will simply say that the camera division is looking strong and in good hands. The OM-D line of cameras will not suddenly cease functioning because of new ownership! There is lots of positive out there and the new lenses and bodies planned for 2020 - 2021 look simply awesome. Stay well everyone.
I'm not particularly interested in gear for gear's sake but having just completed my mainly Olympus set-up I'm relieved and hopeful that this may be true. It ties in with what Andy Rouse was saying.
