Re: E-50? Could it be more than just a rumour?

Earlier in the year I saw an Oly patent for a "flapping translucent mirror" - this would have about 30% of the light directed downwards onto a phase detect AF system but move out of the way to provide 100% of the light for image taking. Of course it would only work with a built in EVF and the full 4/3 flange to sensor distance.

I was just wondering if such a system would make a suitable E620 successor.
