Hot on the heels of yesterday's announcement, another new camera—this one derived from Olympus's well-received E-M5, called the E-M10. It's a somewhat smaller, lower-cost ($699) variation with a lower faux-pentaprism hump. The E-M10 has only three-axis in-body image stabilization instead of five (Ctein notes the five-axis IBIS makes a huge difference, especially with longer lenses). The E-M10 has built-in flash, and also WiFi functions à la the E-M1. The EVF in the E-M10 appears to be the same as the one in the E-M5. You can see the specs and compare with the specs Olympus's other OM-D cameras here. It's available in black or silver.
These lenses look huge on the screen in these images, but bear in mind they'd be likely to strike you as being on the tiny side in real life.
(Note that as of this writing Amazon has 15 more E-M5's for only about $50 more than the new camera. Thanks to James Weekes for this.)

John Krumm: "And for all E-M5 users feeling left behind, Olympus gave us a nice 2.0 firmware update today featuring ISO 100 (extended) and the smaller focus box that all the newer cameras have. I particularly like the more precise focus box."
