Sorry, I don't know where I read that, I'm know I read it somewhere: it's certainly a figure that sticks in my mind for some reason. Maybe I'm paying too much attention to rumour sites!.

I would hope that by late next year that Olympus would show us a pro spec body with an EVF that is as good or better than an OVF: but that really depends on by what margin the EVF is judged. My view of current technology is that they are miles off. I know others think otherwise. Really, for their strategy to be a success they need to launch a model that carries everyone with them and that is what worries me. I fear that they will come up with something that is still a compromise compared to an OVF: by which I mean it will offer improved functionality but optically won't be as good. I really hope I'm wrong on this.
