      I'm interested as I am trying to gauge the current state of expectation among photographers and a you're pretty representative I think.

      I don't know what it will be called, but I agree that it will fully support full and micro 43 lenses and due to the former will have to be larger than the OMD but perhaps e620 size. This would do me as I am not convinced that micro 43 is right for me yet.

        Hear, hear!
        Forget the space race for unfeasibly high ISO, I'd like something lower than 200 as well.

          I wish David was involved in the redesign! I too want a camera that has the things Olympus does well without the rush to add buttons and options. I 'got' the E1 without reading a manual. I cannot 'get' the EM5 even with a manual and the extra book.

          Design is about making something work beautifully as well as look good.

            A PRO e-620... Yup... I would call it an E-6

              Have to disagree there. Shooting sports in an English winter, the current high ISO peformance of the E-5 is a limiting factor. Even with the 150mm f/2 wide open it can struggle in the December murk. I agree that just chasing high ISO for its own sake is as daft as the megapixel race - and with the E-M5 I think we have just about got as far as we need. As far as I need, anyway.

                  I agree about good high ISO performance. When you spending a grand plus on a body you should getting this irrespective of the camera marque.

                    I believe that's the LEAST likely outcome.

                      And my 620 goes down to a (pinch processed) 100 ISO...

                          I don't expect we'll ever see a base ISO of 100 again. Having 4 lenses with no filter threads I don't even have the option of using ND's on some of my lenses.
                          It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.

                            Missing ISO-100 is not a real problem.

                            Olympus cameras with the new 16 Mp sensor cannot go lower than ISO-200, but have an higher DR.

                            This means you can overexpose with +1 when you do the picture, than later on editing, adjust back the exposure to the corect value.

                            Even E-5 has good enough DR and is possible to overexpose with +1....+1.5 without burning some areas of the picture.
                            I guess E-M5 is a bit better. No problem at all to overexpose with +1...+1.5.

                            So problem solved.

                              Yup - I tell people all the time that digital (at least with reasonably sized sensors) is not like transparency film; there is more recoverable highlight detail than you might expect.

                                Is that right? There was a discussion about number superstition in my blog on DPNow and our friend, Yoshi, from Japan didn't mention '6' as being a problem number:
