    This is from dpreview.com, Olympus DSLR group;

    "A good friend who is pretty high up in R&D (Kodak)says they have
    delveloped a totally new CCD for Olympus to use in their next
    generation DSLRs. He said it will have "groundbreaking" inovations.
    This remains to be seen but is nice to hear."

  2. Yes but will it be any better at photography?
    I'm sick and tired of pounding my Oly. It can't break ground any better
    than my Fujica can.!

    A good friend who is pretty high up in Japanese law enforcement says that
    was called to Olympus HQ following the murder of the designer alleged to be
    responsible for the 4/3 system.

    The victim, apparently, was beaten to death with an E300 by (allegedly) the

    Police are currently sifting through tens of thousands of unsold E300
    cameras in an attempt to locate the murder weapon.

    Yet they (Kodak) couldn't make a sensor for their own dSLR cameras...

    Yes it is - but the police feel confident of finding the camera, as
    Detective Yoshu Yammawada commented, "Everyone knows that Olympus aren't
    very sharp"

    Do you know why? Because Kodak sensors had two purposes;
    1. To image production lines at 15fps or faster, so noise wasn't an
    2. Because anyone using a Kodak sensor as a long exposure image
    device cooled it with some mechanism like liquid nitrogen.

    They probably never thought about using them in digital still cameras
    until it was too late to change their core designs. Or maybe they
    thought the public appetite for inferior digital images would never
    change? Technology marches on, they didn't.

    The Olympus SLR forum on DPreview is a natural spawning ground for rumours
    and speculation. Two reasons for this: Olympus, traditionally, doesn't
    reveal many details about new products prior to their launch, and it has
    been quite a while since the E-1 first entered the market (two years this
