Olympus has put an advertisement announcing a new camera in February an suggesting something with O am M. So will there be another retro like product like the Pen?

Anyway, as usual, rumors have started:
- 16 MP (finally);
- EVF
- retro like OM (but which one?)

So, let's wait and see. It would be nice if I can use my 4/3 lenses.

Looks like it could be pretty classy!

I do hope someone does a weather-proofed ILC soon...

43 rumours has it's photo up with the optional grip. Looks a bit better than the new pentax ILC :lol:

Looks very OM-like with a large curious hump. I wonder if it has a composite EVF/OVF of some description a-la-Fuji?

It's about time m43 brought together all the best bits of the m43 bodies

Olly IBIS + jpeg processing + "Olympus feel/design" + Panny sensor + swivel screen + built-in VF

The m43 system is really maturing :D

Oh My God! I would SELL MY 7D to get this camera! If the rumours are true, I will get it the day its released, I will gladly go into debt to get it!

Pretty looking camera. It's a lot narrower than my OM-2 and than the E-P3 judging from the size of the lens. It may turn out to be functionally equivalent to an E-P3 with a built-in EVF. In a way I resent Olympus using the OM moniker but I guess they've decided that the small size is justification enough. I'm looking forward to the reviews.

Bob.

Looks good so far:
- finally a newer sensor, so better high iso results
- weather sealed
- fast enough
- new (and better?) stabilisation
- relatively small
- buit in viewfinder

So remaining questions:
- continuous AF performance?
- how will 4/3 lenses perform on it
