Reason: the Epson VF is quite large so Oly had no room.

I love how there's always an apologist who tries to reason away poor design decisions. There's room for a flash. Move the port, extend the hump forward, insert flash. Next.

You can't move the port, it needs a flash shoe. If you extend the hump, it will stop being small and neat and looking like an OM1, which was a large part of the design brief. There is already endless moaning that the hump is "too big".

There is a free attachable flash. That's good enough,
