    Update: It seems the silver version shown below is actually a Photoshopped version of the black one. However, Amazon Japan had a listing for a silver version, and various rumor sites are reporting that the real thing looks a lot like this Photoshopped version.



    I love the look of this cameras, especially in silver. The 17mm lens shown is absolutely tiny, so it's clear that this is a very compact camera.

    If anyone knows the primary source where these images were first posted, let me know so I can attribute them properly. I tried searching for the words in the watermark and came up with nothing.

    The silver looks like the classic to me. I hope to get one of these at some point.

    The odd lens tilt makes these look like just some more wishful thinking paste-ups and not real images.

    The viewfinder hump seems disproportionately large to me. Just the way the lines of the camera make it appear?

    I hope this camera can focus legacy 4/3 glass well. If it does then I am on board finally getting into the m4/3's world!

    I think the lens is Photoshopped on, but that seems to be a common practice in these pre-launch manufacturer leaks.

    Most definitely, it's at the wrong angle relative to the body. The silver DOES look better now that I see it like this (without the batter/grip thingie). It'll be interesting to see one in person.

    And if you look closely, you can see that the "silver paint" is acutally the black camera that has been "edited" to appear silver....

    that's a little concerning, from a timeline POV. I want to see this before spring =)

    Is it possible that this is pop-up flash release button?

    I wonder if they'll do a white version?

    It looks like the microphone hole. There's a matching one on the other side.

    I hate to be a party pooper, but it looks like an incongruous mash up to me.

    Looks like there's a battery grip option...

    It looks practical in design to me. :) Unlike the Pentax K-01.

    k-01 seems pretty straight forward to me.
