Cool The 'That camera' forum

Olympus is running a teaser campaign, the rumour sites have gone potty, something must be happening

So here is a forum that, if all signs suggest accurately, will become the dedicated forum for 'That camera...'

Please post your comments about the camera we are all wondering about here from now.

I was teasing

I can send you a copy on CD if you don't have it. But I guess you can make your own.

I'm really hoping that there's some fatal flaw in this camera - otherwise I'll be agonising between buying it and feeding the family for a month!
