I really hope there is some functional reason for that "hump" to be so high.

I'm guessing that bit between the EVF and hot shoe is the cover for the accessory port. If so, that would explain why the hot shoe is so far from the EVF, and the hump so big.

If Olympus is going to preserve the accessory port in this camera, I hope that means Olympus is going to double down on it and produce some more useful accessories for it. The macro light, microphone adapter, and Pen Pal - the latter of which us iOS users can't even use - aren't enough. How about a GPS receiver or a WIFI adapter? How about an LED light for video, or a pico projector for playback? If they opened the port up to outside companies, the possibilities are extensive.

Perhaps an external HDMI port so that we can use an external monitor for framing.
