There have been odd rumours for at least 18 months that Oly was developing a "Triad" sensor - that's three separate sensors for the three primary colours (such sensors are already in use in video cameras) but that would mean that beam splitters had to used, taking up space. Nobody could see how that could be fitted into a body using a conventional mirror, however if you eliminate the mirror.....................................

I expect to see such a camera one day but have no facts to suppose that it is really imminent - just dreaming
