Looks to potentially be a pretty interesting couple of months ahead.

If this is even close to true, it looks to be along the size of the NEX-7. If Olympus follows the same trend for their "pro" model, fine by me. The E-PM1 is fine as a take-anywhere, but I've been looking for over a year now for a suitable upgrade for my E620 and E-510 that can comfortably handle larger 4/3's lenses.

I've long felt the OM series was the perfect size (which the E-xxx's nicely matched in a DSLR); now perhaps there will be a body that works for both lens systems and in a more slender form.

I know, just rumors, sigh...
