Several sites are talking about a rumor that Olympus is negotiating the sale of its consumer imaging division to Panasonic. 43 Rumors | Home I don't know how I feel about that. I'm no Olympus fanboy. I've owned a couple of Panasonic cameras and they've been great. My Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 lens is also my "go to" lens for my Olympus m4/3 cameras. I've also had some random Panasonic electronics in my home and they've all been good. However, there is something unsettling about even the remote "possibility" of no more Olympus cameras/lenses. I won't go as far as to say a sale of Olympus to Panasonic would result in me abandoning all my 4/3 and m4/3 gear, but I'd be worried ... and I'm not entirely sure why. Change happens, but I'm not too enthusiastic about the possibility of this particular change.
