On that basis the extra size compared to a "naked" MK2 is a backward step and going away from one of the major selling points of the system.

We should all remember of course this whole discussion is based on rumour and conjecture.

Not if you permanently have a 150-400mm F4-5.6 zoom lens or 300 F4 lens with MC14 attached. I think this camera is aimed it those sort of users. Don't forget Japan will be hosting the 2020 Olympics & Olympus will be ready (hopefully) with a suitable Pro sports camera outfit for it. Having wireless flash trigger & receivers should be welcome too (hopefully compatible with other model cameras too).
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
