    I love the curvy look. I wonder how far it is from completion.

    I don't see an SF-CAF-MF toggle on it. I hope they have something good in mind for that, as well as a quick way to switch among the (hopefully 7 or more) AF points.

    Default Agree - that's big

    and a step in the wrong direction as far as I'm concerned. A me-too 4/3's body seems to lose some of the arguments for its inception. And, if its weight has increased commensurately, it will have a lot less appeal for me.

    Default why do i think of Canon1D...

    This is what we have been waiting for and now we have a model.
    It looks realy promising. the huge prism promises a good and bigger viewfinder. The lack of a MSAP-dial and overal slimness makes it look even more robust than the E-1(and more Canon, less Nikon). I sure hope the vertical grip is a permanent part of the body. The way they made the shutter-release its totaly Canonish. Overall, my first assosiation when i saw this was Canon1D. Maby Olympus tought"Canon is the leader in proDslr. Should we make something that looks similar...?". Just like the E-300 wasn´t a major brekatrough but the E-500 was. Maby it can lure more working photographers into Olycamp by serving something that looks more familiar. I mean, if i say car, you don´t think of an airplane.... Just hope it will have the great ergonomic contrary to canon.

    The body is great! It's nice, sleek and clean which ensures that the weatherproofing is intact. I probably won't be able to afford it until everyone is looking for the next E model.

    It looks to me like the vertical grip is still intended to be removable - otherwise why have the break line along the bottom? Which is my preference, I like being able to remove the grip.

    Can I get an all-black version? With no markings? Or perhaps black on black?
    I think I could get used to it. Very minimalist, I can only see 12 buttons compared to E-1 19.
    I think Olympus is starting (Finally!) to pull their SLR vision together after the OM-5 disaster...

    INFO FIX!!!! AAAAAAA

    Finally, news about the new E Pro! The entire Olympus community just gave a huge sigh! We got our Info fix now we are all happy to know Olympus is working on a new camera!

    So we can now get back to work using the gear we got!! hahahaha, that part was more in reference to the other forum!

    The one thing I am noticing about the mockup is the lack of battery door on the grip. I would expect the shape of the grip will change a little. Also like Ray pointed out the lack of wheel on the grip, I hope the buttons on the grip are not the up and down!

    But its great to have had my INFO FIX!

    Now we have a rough guide on how it will look !!!
    I sure do like it.

    So it's time to start wondering about specs and prize
    You better start saving already I guess......
    I bet $200-250 dollars a month would bring you close to its price when its eventually released.
    Guessing a release date of around July 2007

    The battery grip could be a quick mock up for media pics. The final product will most likely include the dials. It doesn't make any sense not to!

    I know that doesn't mean shit but man it's ugly. Before you bark at me....I own a E-300. Matter of fact I've owned two of them.

    I'm sure it will grow on me but from what I see in that image, it's a ugly duckling. I can't wait to hold one though!!!!! Very excited!!!
    Yup, I love my ugly duckling 300's. Both of them. I am thinking this will be a popular camera but I agree, it's a bit on the homely side.

    I love the last line of the statement. Seems Oly is aware people were growing quite restless and relentless in their call for the demise of 4/3.

    Something that I find hilarious (but I have a strange sence of humor) is that no matter how mock-up a mock-up is.. it ALWAYS has a flash shoe cover one it

    @jebier.. dunno, it showed an "E1-rs" which looked totally un-E1-ish.. for some reason it's either pulled or moved somewhere else.

    May be this time!
    I said in my last deleted message that the new E-3 isn't so ugly without its grip, as you can see on the attached picture which I quick modify with PSCS2!

    I wonder why the mirror hump is protruding so much in front of the lens mount. Normally, this is done to make room for the built-in flash. As this camera doesn't have a flash, it must be to make room for something else. But what? The prism will certainly not use this extra space.

    Default Calculations...

    Ok, if the E-x goes for 2500euro then i need to add the 35-100 for 2300euro that i have been thinking of buying. If the E-x has a 10mp or more sensor, i will need to buy a new computer: 1500euro. And when Lightroom is released i will need to buy that since the beta will not work anymore. Probably 300euro. New CF-cards, say 200euro.
    So the new E-x will be all-in-all around 7000euro.....

    Still, a body only canon 1Ds is about 7000euro

    Much sexier without the grip! Not ugly at all. Maybe the grip is just uber functional and we can forgive its unattractiveness??
