    At first glance I thought it was an EM5 :tongue:

    The hump is different, but that's probably the pop up flash. I'm like to see the back and a comparison with the EM5, just because (I'm nosy and) it's supposed to be smaller. It's also interesting that when you click on the pic you go to the Amazon page for the EM5.

    I used the "OM-D" stamp as a - potentially specious - point of reference to compare the EM10 and EM5:

    Too bad the lens is attached. The sensor would be a dead give away.

    Well I lined up the metal lens mounts and on that basis they are exactly the same width with the E-M10 somewhat shorter.

    To me this seems right. Look at the E-M5 next to the Stylus 1 on Camerasize.

    http://camerasize.com/compare/#494,289

    The E-M10 appears to be a cross between the 2. Note that the stylus is only less wide because it doesnt have much body to the right of the lens while the right of the E-M10 body is similar to the E-M5. The bulge on the top looks exactly the same as the flash bulge on the Stylus 1.

    Only reason I'm inclined to believe my comparison over yours is this quote from 43rumors: "Very small body". You could be right though.

    bigger dials, that nice mode dial on the left, im guessing near em-1 in terms of buttons for customization.

    the strap mounting points are still in intrusive location!

    ok, im possibly being stupid, but is the double lens kit the 14-42 + 25mm?

    The rumor is based on Japanese product introduction - the twin lens kit will be a double zoom lens kit. These are exceptionally popular in Japan with all ILCs. I think it highly unlikely that the EM-10 will launch with a twin lens kit offering in the US and Europe.

    i would think that makes the most sense... but that seems like a very cheap body only option if you get a proll $200 lens and a $350 lens with body for $1050...right? im so confused! lol

    43Rumor seems to think the MSRP is around $700 for body-only? Sounds about right...

    It'd be nice if that hump turned out to be a slightly better EVF than the one in the E-M5 (VF-2/3? a cross between perhaps?), probably not the one in the E-M1 (VF-4) though.

    Looks like 5-axis IBIS is among the most expensive components.

    3 axis stabilizer? isn't that a step behind the E-M5, E-P5, and E-M1? A cost saving measure I'm sure but how will that affect the performance I wonder.

    No, the pricing makes sense (at least to camera companies)

    We are looking at 80k yen - body only
    95k - plus new kit zoom
    110k - plus twin zooms

    Camera companies tend to make the body only option and give a 'discount' when bought with the kit zoom - think E-M5 + 12-50 or E-M1 + 12-40.

    So the price of the kit zoom in the body + kit is only 15k (US$150). Given it seems a pretty attractive kit lens you could probably get US$250 for it on ebay meaning the body only price of the E-M10 is more like 70k or US$700. That pricing looks pretty competitive to me although no absolute bargain. There is a US$500 price difference between the E-M10 and the E-M1, so plenty of room for a genuine E-M5 replacement imbetween.

    so with the height difference, I guess the HLD-6 won't fit on the EM-10...

    I want to see the specs on this camera. I hope it gets the 1/8000th max shutter and possibly the E-M1 EVF. If it doesn't have either, I'd probably just pick up an E-M5 instead.

    I suspect not. The Japanese prices include a 6k (US$60) grip for the EM-10 only.

    I think it most likely will get the E-M1 EVF, but probably not a 1/8000th shutter. Not at the price point they are targeting I think.

    Also, I'm wondering if people will really miss the PDAF. I know a big selling point on most reviews of the OM-D cameras is their AF speed.

    The rumors have consistently said the E-M10 will get both the EVF and the image-processing engine from the E-M1. And while no one can be sure until the camera is officially unveiled, that's the assumption that I'm working with for now. 3-axis versus 5-axis IBIS? Feh. I started serious photography in the 1970s. I got by without any IS for decades. I'm more concerned that the E-M10 retains weather resistance.

    Maybe it'll have a silent shutter? :wink:

    Well, you always get a slight discount when buying lens kits. It is just a matter if you need the lenses or not and if you want to go through the hassle of selling them.

    It would be nice if they had a kit that shipped with the 25mm though.
