You're probably already aware of this—that is, if you haven't gotten with the new post-transition paradigm yet and you still get excited over new camera releases—but I'll tell you anyway: the Internet is allegedly abuzz with leaked pictures of the formerly hush-hush "King of Micro 4/3," the new range-topper in the format from Olympus. The OM-D E-M1 will slot into the line above the OM-D E-M5.
Read all about it (if you're intrigued) at Steve Huff Photo.
P.S. This isn't really apropos to this post, necessarily, but an idea struck me the other day—that the claim "it went viral" is essentially unverifiable in many cases, and consequently should be taken with a healthy dose of skepticism by right-minded and sagacious surfers. Some news items are sort of basic to various fields, and do tend to get echoed a lot among the sites that cover that field; and when those things have clear and distinct tags, maybe you can track their reach or at least get some sense of it. But in many other cases, the claim "it went viral on the Internet!" might be just another breathless, brainless way of saying "everybody's talking about it!" when in fact there's no meaningful way to verify or quantify either "everybody" or "talking about it."
Just a thought.

John Krumm: "I'm getting one early if the 4/3 lens AF promise pans out, and I'll sell my E-5 and OM-D eventually to help pay it off. Looks like a decent mix of the two, with improvements. I will miss a good OVF mainly. I like the idea of going back to one camera for everything and really learning that camera well. And with the battery grip and phase detection for regular 4/3 lenses this looks like a real 'transformer' camera."
