Perhaps the retro boys have really gone to town and it takes film. Thats why it has the rewind crank on top.

Of course, the real innovation is that it will come with a full printed manual. In English.

No, but a Olympus will provide you with a kit so you can make your own plates.

I think it will be a little electronic voice which will drive you mad telling you to " go back and refocus !! "

A 3D printer program that produces an outer layer so that it looks like a "Megabucks" CaNiKoN, but produces far superior images...

Maybe the new 'PRO' lenses will be available in white so people will think you're using a real camera.

No...I reckon each camera will come with a 3D printer so that you can print your own lens caps .....or your own 12-60mm or 50-200mm so that there will be no excuse for BIF's or DIF's or PIF's!

Re: OK - So What is Olympus keeping Secret?

I know what I would like them to have up their sleeve - and that's the "Triad" sensor that they took out a patent on about six years ago. At one time I thought that the 5-axis IS was a precursor to its release but I have given up hope now.
