I hope that when your NDAs are in the recycle bin, you'll give us a glimps of what went on when they let the micro cat out of the bag.
The NDA precludes me from talking about actual products previewed to us, as well as roadmaps. I can talk about the general concepts and technical details, as long as they are not product-specific.

By the way, I was a guest of Panasonic for this preview, not Olympus. Panasonic are definitely in the driving seat for Micro Four Thirds, at least start with, just as Olympus has been in the driving seat for Four Thirds DSLRs.
