  • E1 - new concept, nothing like the preceeding Exx fixed lens cameras. Very little pre-release info before it was officially announced.

A mockup was displayed at photographic shows for people to comment on months (over a year?) before it was released. When they finally released the E1, it looked just like the mockup except the grip had been made detachable.

  • E300 - radical redesign of the body, lower price point. Almost no information before it was officially announced, nothing to hint at the Pen-like body shape.

Wasn't following consumer models at the time

  • E330 - radical new concept, live view. Absolutely no information before it was officially announced.
  • E3 - complete redesign of the E1 concept. Very little said about this greatly delayed product before it was officially announced.

A mockup was shown at photographic shows for people to comment on months (over a year?) before it was released. When they finally released the E3, it looked quite similar to the mockup.

They did not do this with the E5. Its capability shocked a lot of people.

  • And recently - OMD. Radical redesign of the micro concept, use of a Sony sensor, 5 axis IBIS. Very little said before it was officially announced, and nothing that would hint at what it actually turned out to be.

True

Conclusion: the rumored E7 and the rumored OMD-Pro, due out this fall, are probably the same camera. Not everyone's concept of the ideal, but it's better than discontinuing the 4/3 line altogether.

Totally agree.
