A trusted source told me that Olympus has no plan to launch another XZ camera. Just like Panasonic (with the LX100) Olympus will focus on large sensor fixed lens compact. Previous rumors I got suggested Olympus is working on a sort of digital Olympus Trip 35 camera (here on eBay).
The source didn’t unveil any details about such a future large-sensor compact camera. But Olympus better be hurry because that kind of market-segment is getting saturated soon…
