Re: Nothing new from Olympus at Photokina, but...

I don't think I will be buying FF (either DSLR or mirrorless) anytime soon. The original Olympus SLR cameras were the right size for me; going digital the E-5 was not. In the mirrorless market the E-M5 was the perfect size as are most of the lenses; the E-M1 is too big. I now have a reasonable investement in Olympus MFT that would stop me switching at a whim even if the size & weight were right.

If Olympus were to enter the "FF" market then they would need a new sensor... and as has been said the major thing lacking at the moment in Oly MFT is a more up to date sensor so perhaps they don't have access to up to date sensor technology at the moment.
