Sony and Olympus Share To Share Technology

I just read on 4/3 Rumours that Olympus will be sharing it's 5-Axis Image Stabilization technology with Sony, in exchange for their Phase Detect Autofocus sensor technology.

Interestingly enough, Sony marketing has gotten in touch with me and will be lending me an NEX-6, which has the phase detect hybrid autofocus system.  Combined with Sony's APS-C DSLR sized sensor, this should be capable of some superb quality pics, and I'm super excited to be able to test the NEX-6 and compare it to my OMD EM5 next month.

If the rumor is true, then we look forward to more capable mirrorless cameras in the near future.
