On another note, I really haven't followed the PEN family much. When do you think a new PEN might be announced? (hopefully with the above lens)

The new Pens are due for replacement shortly - certainly I would expect to see them in the first 6 months of this year. Traditionally Oly updates them yearly in October but there was no update in 2013. Oly said their update had been delayed - I would guess this is because they are having a larger revamp than usual.

The LCDs are small and an awkward shape at 16:9. Olympus is also due to improve its touch screen specs which will allow the camera to have less buttons and leave room for a larger LCD. The overall design looks pretty ancient when compared to the GM1. Presumably the new kit lens will be included.
