I'll wait and see in a couple of weeks how accurate the rumor is. Since it is so close, it’s not worth discussing.

Actually, I'll go further. Very nice looking retro cam (designed without looking fake like the EM5) but if there's no built-in EVF it looks like it'll be good-bye Oly, it’s been nice to know you.

Cheers, geoff

What's fake with the E-M5? The hump contains the view finder, so no fake. The hump means lower shoulders, which leads to a more compact design. See the comparison between E-M5 and Fuji X- E1/Pro 1 at camerasize.com.

Thomas - the hump is fake -- it imitates a pentaprism. I could have been much lower. The camera is more compact because it has lower shoulders? Come off the grass, mate - it is lesscompact  because it has the ruddy great hump! 

Other cameras have an EVF and no hump or a much lower hump. Check the Sony.

Cheers, geoff
