Given the recent announcement of the E-420, does anyone know about news of a possible E-520? My main reason for asking is because I was wondering about purchasing an E-510 in what could be between 6 and 12 months time, and with an E-520 on sale, 510 prices will obviously fall.

No announcements as yet - a June 08 release was rumoured but this is doubtful.

Sneak peek of what is supposed to be a prototype here. Not even a model name on it.

In Japanese but....eerily similar to the E510

That could just as well be an E-510 or am I mistaken?

They also changed that on the E-420 so colour blind people can read all the symbols

Wouldnt white be better?

either way it does look the same as a regular 510 to me otherwise

The knobs have different knurls than mine and the Olympus moniker has moved on the screen.
Interesting to find that some E-510's out there have blue markings, mine is green.
