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

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.
That is one thing that is expected to be improved on next year.
The 'trusty' Simon said this (in July),
"the new 6 axle stabi in MK III, that's another 30 % improvement over the current EM 1 MK II. Furthermore the new sensor does not bring a significant Mpx improvement, but in the ISO and low light range a real breakthrough."
This can be found in the comments here (a long way down).

So from his comments (including his other comments), an E-M1 Mk III will be coming 1st quarter 2019 with a 30% improved IS (Sync IS) with 6 axis (?) & the sensor not much difference in MP but significant improvement in low light & high ISO.
