I'm afraid you might be right. I was kinda thinking a E-510 sized mirrorless camera with a PDAF adapter. Now with this expected at the end of the year deal I'm not so hopeful anymore, we've heard this line before. For me that's OK, I don't need more kit, and certainly I don't need to be tempted by another body, but I fear that others maybe disappointed. Hope Oly puts out some good teasers or something to keep peoples interest...soon.
