The full Olympus line-up

Dials! Dials everywhere, OM-D=Oh My Dials? Olympus really means business with this one. No fancy designer needed here, just the best example of retrography this editor has ever seen, and yes, i include all the recent Fujifilms, and the Panasonic GX1.

Another note: There appears to be a removable part in the 'triangle' just above the viewfinder. Add-on port maybe? Like, GPS, some wireless gizmo, a mini remote, or even a cuckoo that springs out and laughs hysterically at every other mirrorless camera that comes nearby?  (Updated 2/5/12)
