OK - So What is Olympus keeping Secret?

We've all seen a rather successful (and cheap) marketing campaign for THAT CAMERA. The orchestrated 'leaks' have created the 'buzz' about the launch with scarcely a penny spent.

But I can't be alone in believing that Olympus wouldn't have drip fed us with so much unless they were holding something back.

So what's your best guess about the 'surprise' feature that Olympus won't announce until the launch?

Nick

it most certainly isn't affordable......including the new lens 200,000 Yen! Convert that to your own currency..it is $2,307.06 Canadian...that is more than double what the OM D5 was when it was brought out.

It is NOT the answer to Birds in Flight and Olympus will lose masses of long loyal brand supporters, overnight post spec launch ...

It has a tea maker built in, but is only compatible with Japanese green leaf tea with toasted rice... (which I love, so I will be happy!)

Re: OK - So What is Olympus keeping Secret?

Will the American version have a coffee maker?

...or will it have a 30fps/25fps switch on the movies (slap my wrist for such a thought)

Perhaps they're running the firmware on Java?
