If you've not seen the thread on dpreview Oly let slip on their european site of an E400 and also that the E400 name has been registered by Olympus. No real information at all other than that. Whether its an upgrade to the E330 and so soon or an upgrade to the E500 is any ones guess. Here's the links:

The original note to the E400 has been removed but one of the posters in the thread below took a screen shoot of the page.

I dont think E 330 is due for the chop yet
sounds more like E 500 or E1 to me, which have been out now for 2 yrs+
E1 seem to be offered at lower than ever prices of late too

The E-500 was released about 10 months ago.

ah yes it was too, thanks for that
recon I meant to have said the E300
but even that isnt that old
sorta hope none of them go really, they all offer something different
given that its a guessing game working out where they are going

I wouldn't assume this model is meant to replace any of the current bodies, but then again, this is all speculation, even the stuff we're hearing on other sitesfrom people who've "talked to Olympus reps".

From what they say in the asian community, it's supposed to be a "ladies" camera, meaning lighter and smaller (don't know how much smaller than E-300 they can get)...although I could imaging the lens on a C-700 sized body (but it would be all lens and very little body).

Note that the opinion in the previous paragraph is not mine, in fact many women I know use cameras physically larger and heavier than the E-1.
