I hope the also rumoured new stick on EVF does not mean the old EVF's are no longer usable on the new Pen.

Oly's usually good about backward compatibility but these are my fears, too. A move like that would, IMO, kill sales.

I expect the new EVF to be incompatible with the older PEN's. But the older EVF's should be compatible with the newer bodies.

Hi Jeff,

The new EVF is probably the new Epson Ultimicron XGA (1024X768) 2.36MP unit that went into production Jan 22. I suspect that you are right about the earlier models of the Pen if for no other readon than the processing power needed. If they have piled on the processing power, it might also explain the AF claims.
