How many of you think a DSLR to sit in the E-XXX size with a more "stylized" look would sell. Lets assume it is about $800 and harks back to the heyday of DSLRs with some metal, leather etc.

I can't say I like the retro designs I see.

I'd much rather they continue the E-xxx line-up of better ergonomics, no leather and no inspiration from the distant past.

In many ways I think Olympus has burned some bridges with the absense of new DSLR bodies, so I think they have sent some negative messages in the market there, but I wish them well.

Cool, I got a bite I understand a retro body would inspire some, and turn others off... But what if it looked good and was ergonomic?

Do you think the retro body would sell across a broader base than a standard body?
