    From the small picture, seems the lcd monitor can flip out like E-330 ...
    I myself like the recess of the vertical grip, think it has better ergonomic when zoom the lens.

    I'll leave detailed comment until the official announcement, but if that is a real mock up, it only takes a few minutes to grow on you.

    Cheers

    Interesting body style, french curves and rakish angles. They definitely do their own thing on Mt. Olympus....

    Doesn't sound like they're planing on selling out to Panasonic any time soon.

    I think it looks quite a bit bigger that the E-1. Note that the lens is the 7-14, not the 14-54...

    From the Olympus japan site ... the lens mounted on it is a 7-14mm, and if the lcd monitor is a 2.5", then we can roughly guess the size of the new E.
    I myself like the vertical grip shape, can rest my left hand wrist at it.

    Haha, it means olympus still do not want to disclose any new lens which is on the way :P

    Default Re: The mock-up!

    Looks like the mock up is real, as it's posted on the Olympus site. The general styling I don't mind at all, the grip has to change, in that it has no control wheels (that's going backwards from the E1) and the cutout is perhaps a bit too extreme.

    Good to see no popup flash and obviously the external sockets like PC sysnc, remote will be added. But styling wise I think it looks really great and the additional grip looks much more thought out, much like that on the K10D.

    The 7-14mm lens actually looks like a 14-54mm on the body, so is this merely a perspective thing, or is the body larger? Either way, I don't mind one bit, but let's hope we hear about the specs sooner, rather than later. I guess it doesn't matter, I'm here for the long haul (waving to all those jumping overboard - bon voyage!).

    Cheers

    It looks like a faithful progression of the E-1, which I like,

    Nah! That's the high speed sports camera body, not the general use one. I have to wonder how much trial and error Olympus designers had to go through before they came up with the latest concept. It's pretty good, except for a few things that might be of personal taste.

    Cheers

    Ouch, it is huge. 7-14 on it looks like 14-54 on my E1, so it's about as big as a Canon 1Ds. What happened with the promise of smaller and more compact cameras than on 35mm?

    Am I the only one that thinks this body is Uglier than the E-300?

    I know that doesn't mean crap 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!!!

    *Rollkick Dan Browning* It's a swan!!! Yes, it might be a ugly example of the species; but still a swan.. Maybe a Cygnus atratus maybe? (Australian black swan)

    That ought to be something for Ozray ^^

    Hmmm... I think it looks cool Lot of stuff still missing (where's the top dial for A, S, M and such?) but I like the overall shape. I do hope that the grip is not integrated tho...

    I miss the L-shape. And the front dial, I always felt it was more comfortable than those recessed dials Canon/Nikon put on their cameras. But of course it could change. Otherwise it does look good, very "zen".
