Olympus Japan doesn’t list the E400 series cameras anymore! E-460 really coming soon?

Few days ago DxO mark “leaked” a possible Olympus E-450 replacement called “E-460“.
Now one of our readers noticed that the E400 series cameras are missing on the official Olympus Japan website! Hmmm, is Olympus going to announce the E-460 soon? And will Olympus release even more cameras?
