Yeah, the c is silent. I've heard it used in TV shows although I can't remember which ones.

Re: What will be the substance of the announcement

In some ways a modular camera would give the best of both worlds - small and light with MFT lenses but becoming physically bigger and heavier when the mirror assembly is attached for use with 4/3 lenses, essentially converting it into a DSLR. There is much to commend this approach, but it wouldn't be cheap to manufacture. Olympus may well have been investigating this avenue, but I suspect that with on-sensor PDAF having been developed more recently this is the option they have chosen.

Re: What will be the substance of the announcement

It would appear this is no longer a rumour as Engadget had a video showing the new Olympus E-M1.

The video has now been removed from Engadget but can be seen the the following link for anyone who's interested.

I've started saving my money to buy one of these cameras!

I can't take credit for the video, Mark Chan over on DPR was good enough to make it available at the link.

The video is circa 5 minutes long, if you're seeing less than this try downloading it.

The camera does look good and best of all, I can continue to use my 4/3 glass.

Pretty impressive leak if it's not a spoof. Pretty good spoof if it's not real
Looks like I'm joining the savings club too.

Re: What will be the substance of the announcement

Well I am not so sure. I did pick up on the fast AF:

"The focusing on this camera is superb I think a lot of our four thirds customers will be very very happy... almost as fast on FT as it is on the mFT"

I will have to see what the customers verdict is.
