No need to apologise - all good.  I just wasn't sure where things were headed.  Cheers.  ;D

My apologies for starting the swerve off topic.

Whilst Olympus might be looking to get rid of its camera making operations, it is still forgeing on with its lens development plans:

It must be sure that the m/43 format will continue. Alternative, the left hand in Olympus does not know what the right hand is doing.

Which team wrote the message? The doomed on the boat sailing away, or the ones on the shore pushing and waving goodbye?

Interesting:
A 800 mm equivalent plus TC1,25 (built-in in this case) and a  bird detection algorithm.
Doubtful whether we will see that in operation

The point of posting the new Olympus lens roadmap and details of the new 150-400mm zoom lens in a Nikon thread is to make the point that companies such as Nikon & Olympus are doing well in an overall sense and both have invested a lot of money in new camera and new lens technologies which are too new to make good returns for them in todays changing marketplaces and our uncertain COVID-19 world. 

But it makes sense to either hang in there and get a return on these investments in the longer term, OR, to package up their camera operations as viable going concerns if they are planning on selling them. 

Corpses they are not at this stage.

An aside:  Wolfgang, if I read the bird detection algorithm claim correctly, it will be implemented via a firmware change in the E-M1X body.  Yes, I agree - it will be interesting to see if they get it to work. Cheers.

Well, Swarovski got the bird detection and identification working recently:

Did not check any reviews but the technology is out there and Swarovski will only be releasing it when it works as designed.

Maybe i made a confusing statement but I tried to adress the "add Bird Detection capability to the Intelligent Subject Detection Autofocus of the OM-D E-M1X camera" as a feature on the Olympus site linked above. I understand this as an AF-feature allowing to better track birds (in flight) like eye and human face detecion algorithms. Svarovski on the other hand - as far as I understand - helps in identifying bird species one has observed.
