I personally think it would be a mistake if such a camera was as small as an E-M5. I do hope that the next OM-D will be a more affordable model aimed at a high volume of potential buyers.

I hope so also, i wonder how many people have moved over to Panasonic because Olympus brought the E-M5 but with no lower end models. And before it is mentioned a lot of people like the feel and size of a DSLR style camera rather than a PEN. I still only use an E-600 but when she finally dies I would like to stay with Olympus, but at the moment only Panasonic seem to have models within my price range. I want to stay with a 4/3 system.
