    I'm not sure if this thread has been started or not, I didn't even know what to search for. I was just sitting here sipping my coffee when I looked over to my shelf and saw my E-PL1 and my Minolta SRT 101 next too each other. With the love for the retro body that the X100 is receiving, how long before we see a M4/3 camera with a vintage 35mm SLR look?

    The body can receive a slight scaling down, replace the optical viewfinder with an EVF, use the classic fonts. The camera could be gorgeous. $1000 sounds about right to maybe bump up the MP's, some more art filters, more options. I would love to see this happen and if it does, I hope they don't plaster logos all over it like the GF2 or the Oly XZ-1.

    I always thought with the leather wrap around the body of an EP1, sort of gave it a classic SLR look to it

    While I liked to see the old Pen "F" logo return on a lens cap, I wish they'd marked the new series more like the old.
