As reported in this article, Olympus has just started a new marketing stunt, sending a cardboard box with two wrapped walnuts inside, and a note reading "coming soon". There's a high chance this campaign is about the imminent launch of the latest incarnation of the µ-tough, which existence was inadvertently revealed when bestbuy made a colossal gaffe on their website. Nevertheless, until we know for sure, there may be some surprise for us :43: crowd - maybe some waterproof lenses to complement the EM-5 ? Even if the news is about a µ-tough, it's still an interesting reminder of Olympus long standing tradition of being able to manufacture extremely rugged and durable products, perhaps the strongest and most reliable cameras on the market. All pens before the OM-D having been somewhat more on the diva side, this may come as a surprise to people unaware of Olympus history. The µ-Tough line of cameras carries high this tradition, each model being at least as tough as nails, and probably tougher. We can only dream of a cross-breeding between µ-tough ruggedness and :43: image quality. But perhaps that's the promise that lies in that box ? Cheers, Mauve Ps. Amin, if you feel this news more worthy of serious compacts, please move it there as I don't have an account on :43: sibling website.
