Lookie here – just as we were gearing up for a February 8th Micro Four Thirds-shaped announcement from Olympus, Amazon Japan's got a bit trigger happy on its new cameras page and uploaded some front and rear shots (reposted by 43 Rumors) of the rumoured Olympus OM-D.
A chunky, professional looking cam, the OM-D (pictured with an external battery grip) won't be competing with the PEN E-P3 on retro styling. But it should inject some life into the OM series with a 16MP sensor, ISO sensitivity up to 25600 and a pretty good-looking, all-weather magnesium shell. If we get the official word from Olympus next week, you'll be the first to get the full spec list and some more angles to ogle.
