A camera with no hump...

...namely the Olympus E-300, has been considered by many one of the ugliest cameras ever. Probably mainly because of its unconventional look and the fact that the absence of a hump didn't make it look like a DSLR.

Now the upcoming E-M5 seems to disturb a lot of people because of its hump.

I hope that the people who complain about the E-M5's aesthetics are not the same as the ones who complained about the E-300's.

Personally I like both cameras

More importantly, the E-M5's hump will probably serve as a port for a lot of accessories without having to sacrifice the EVF (which is the case with current m43 cameras : it's either the VF-2 or something else). And nevertheless that camera remains small and light.

I'm really impatient to discover all its features tomorrow.
