    “Sony supplies sensors to Olympus”

    So, is that a confirmation that the new Olympus camera will have a Sony sensor or a mistake from Reuters? Because I don’t think Sony has ever supplied sensors to olympus in the past?

      Don’t forget, Olympus makes compacts, too, which I believe all use Sony sensors.

      Would be interesting if Sony was now supplying a 4/3 sensor for them as well, but there’s no indication of that.

    • I did not know either, saw it on Reuters for the first time.
