Pretty much the way I'm thinking. My 40-150 will get a new lease of life.

For me the new lens roadmap is the most interesting aspect of today's announcement. Of course history shows that Olympus don't always deliver on their lens roadmaps.

It's the 2 proposed telephoto zooms in the ~60 to ~250mm range that are notable. Since their zoom ranges seem to largely overlap, it will be interesting to discover what the main differences will be (max aperture, built-in IS ?)
