While the series is named “OM-D” the first camera name could be “OM-D5“. I am pretty confident that those will be the specs (expect minor changes only):

  • Camera has a classic OM design

  • It has a magnesium body

  • It is weathers sealed

  • weight 373 g (body only).

  • 16 megapixel sensor optimized for High Dynamic Range

  • 200 up to 25.600 ISO

  • Built-in electronic viewfinder 1.44 million dots (positioned in the center of the body liek the old OM optical viewfinders and same resolution as the external VF-2 viewfinder (Click here to see on Amazon).

  • 610.000 pixel OLED swivel 3 inch screen.

  • Five-axis image stabilizer in body.

  • FAST AF and 3D tracking

  • Comes in Balck or Silver.

  • Price: Around $1.100 in USA or 1.000 Euro in Europe.

Holy mother of all cows,

If this is not a bad joke then this is the best news I have heard in this millennium.

Way back in my younger years I was a fan of the OM series. I was mostly a mainstream Pentax Spotmatic guy and switched to Nikon F cameras later when, after the LX, Pentax faded away from professional SLR making. However, as a personal camera I had a few OM models, OM-1n, OM-2S, OM-4. I am still with the Nikon brand as of today. However, the love of those OM models is still alive.

I keep reading on this forum and on the very odd occasion post here too. Some good while back I voiced my dream on this forum saying that: "if Olympus ever would introduce a digital SLR resembling the OM series film cameras". Nothing too fancy just a plain well built magnesium body with up to date metering system and a preferably 24x36 sensor of good Oly flavour. And whatever else they would build into this dream machine.

I would in a heartbeat sign up on the pre-order list if this OM-D would prove to be true. Once an OM user always an OM user. Wow, the magic of the OM-1 and OM-4 may return again.

Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope that our prayers will be answered. By the way, 24x36 digital capable Zuiko lenses too please!

Best to all,
AIK
