    Body looks big, meaning tall.
    That or ovf case is small and to tall…

      That’s E-3 silhouette.

  • Very disappointed… with these specs it’s just a normal camera… probably for price/quality neither better than E-620

    • MK

      the only way for them to sell anything with these specs is if they start with a price in the $600-800 range…. the price of older models LOL

      P7000 – g12 clone, lukewarm
      NX100 – no body flash, lukewarm
      K-r – no weather proofing = this is substantially a k-x, for $300 more, no dice
      No new GF – an excuse to charge reasonable prices
      No new PEN – an excuse to charge reasonable prices

      There is nothing exciting here to see. All the hype has fizzled, and I’ll most likely buy something older unless there is a surprise announcement prior to or during photokina. So far the last 2 weeks of announcements have been a major snooze festival.

  • That Oly flyer is actually for Taipei, Taiwan. It will be held at the Howard Plaza Hotel on Jen Ai Road in the afternoon. Too bad I will be away…
