This is a reccuring rumor, and it surfaced again on 43rumors: (FT3) High End OM camera coming within the next 6 months? E-M5 price drop this winter. | 43 Rumors If you follow previous reports, they seem to indicate that Olympus is working on a hybrid mirror technology, resembling the one on Sony SLT bodies. The difference being that this would, arguably, be a type of "liquid mirror tech" (sic!) and shall allow 100% light to pass to the sensor at the time of exposure. Also the whole AF system seems to implement a way to "mix and match" PD-AF and the existing CD-AF, during the AF process, as I understand it. If those rumors prove correct, they answer a number of questions. For example, what will happen with 4/3 future; Olympus would consolidate the two lines with a camera like this (existing adaptors will allow use of "legacy" 4/3 lenses). They will also not implement PD-AF on-sensor, at least for the next iteration of cameras. I'm not sure if this is good news or not. It seems to me as an interim solution, to tell you the truth. OTOH, if it works way better than SLT (meaning, no light loss) this WILL be a gamechanger for :43:, most probably negating one major reservation about performance, namely fast CAF for sports and wildlife. What are your thoughts?
