EOS-d is a down scaled 550D. Yep it is smaller but is targeted at the people who would not use big lenses in any case.

It is also mirror less so it targets the OMD market.

I always aid watch out when canon get serious about mirror less .

I believe this new Canon has a mirror with an optical viewfinder. The rumored specs indicate that the viewfinder is 95% coverage with approx. 0.87x magnificantion--which would make it a bigger size viewfinder than that on the E-30 (98%, 1.02x), after adjusting for crop factor.

I think Canon announcements have been very lackluster in recent years, but I am kind of excited about the small size. Maybe this is not an important marketing message for others? But if the small size does create a buzz, Oly could capitalize--if it also moves the high end E to a small form factor.
