    OK, maybe I'm just behind despite thinking I was familiar with the full Pen lineup, but what the heck is this camera on the left?

    This comes from this article:

    Olympus Pen E-P3 Review | TechClump which is a review of the E-P3. Unless I'm missing it, the text of the rather poorly written review never mentions the content of the picture, it's just kind of stuck in there. So what is this mystery m4/3 camera?

    It is a hoax.

    If Olympus released that camera, it'd blow all other micro-fourthirds bodies out of the water.

    VERY weird that Olympus linked to this from its official Twitter page. It is clearly a Photoshop chop of the Fuji X100 and the E-P1/E-P3.

    I guess it's all that buzz (rumors) around Fuji joining the micro 4/3 team before the end of the year.

    Really? That's not clear at all to me. Can you point out what features of the X100 have been used in that image?

    That's really weird. They are visually comparing the E-P3 to a non-existent camera in a review. They don't even try to name the other body.

    Exactly. The whole thing is just odd.

    Weird, yes. However, it is a photoshop job. If you look at the parts that are the same as the E-P1, the shadows and highlights are the same. Not similar, but exactly the same. That would be nearly impossible to do even if you set the two next to each other in the same room. It's a nice mockup, but no more real than this or this.

    I've seen that since it was first photoshopped and loved it ever since.
