Olympus going even more retro with OM-D camera @ Cnet

"In the film days, Olympus' OM line was one of the majors in the SLR (single-lens reflex) world--indeed, I learned photography with my first camera, an OM-10 I used for many years. With the digital-SLR revolution, Olympus started over with a new brand, the E series line, that came

with the Four Thirds sensor and corresponding lenses. That sensor is significantly smaller than a frame of 35mm film and also than competing SLRs from the likes of Nikon, Canon, Sony, and Pentax. 

 Olympus touted its Four Thirds system as being designed for digital from the start. That may have been true, but it wasn't enough to make it competitive. 
 
 More promising of late has been the Micro Four Thirds revamp that packages the Four Thirds sensor inside an interchangeable lens camera (ILC) body that lacks an SLR's mirror. Olympus has shown a deft touch with the retro look since its first Micro Four Thirds model, the Pen E-P1, even if the cameras haven't been home runs. 
 
 This general category, therefore, seems the likely destination for the OM-D. In particular, Olympus may be finding it easier to introduce a higher-end category than the Pen family, now that Fujifilm, Sony, and Panasonic are pushing ILC designs well above $1,000. And with Canon, Nikon, and Pentax looking ill at ease in the ILC market so far, Olympus' ILC early-mover advantage looks worth something."
