Ic, it is better to wait and see the great new camera rather than half-baked camera.
Well to be frank, the E-x line will always be a great camera. I mean theres nowhere to go but up, and the E-3 is already amazing so any improvement will be amazing.
That said, I think Olympus, [as well as myself] believes that the technology has not moved on enough to warrant a replacement for the E-3. The consumers buying an E-3 level of camera generally have no concern for gimmicks like video recording or face detection, art-filters, etc. What they want is clean pictures from a sturdy and robust body which is what the E-3 ALREADY delivers. The only real specification that is getting dated on the E-3 is the 10MP sensor, which wouldnt see much of a boost if a camera was released today.
Once the technology breaks through to allow [for example] a 14MP fourthirds sensor that delivers clean images, then we will see a replacement. Probably there will be a boost from 5fps to 6 or 7.
