    Real Name:
    Olympus has set a precedent for semi-retro looking cameras, drawing from their camera tradition. It is a matter of discussion if current and future Pens and OM-Ds capture the ethos of their film counterparts (personally, I think they do, but open to counter-arguments).

    Point is, I have this tiny thing of beauty called 35RC sitting close by, not to mention carrying it with me often since it is so diminutive an unobtrusive. Was wondering what you'd think about a :43: based on the 35RC/RD/SP format. Integrated viewfinder, same (or almost) dimensions, "analog type" controls in the same philosophy as the OM-D, etc. I would go as far as having an (assignable?) ring on the lens mount. The rangefinder window could act as an integrated flash (as in the X100). Oh and include the totally silent shutter action please. :smile:

    You mean a Fuji X100 or X10. No, a camera company would never make such a thing. ;)
