I like this add too (and not just because I photographed it on the streets of Toronto, NW corner of Queen & Spadina):

Jeeeez. How about a possible explanation that 4/3 rumors is wrong? Oly hasn't released the camera info yet. I've found over the years that the time to run from a falling sky is only when it's actually falling.

It is official:

I know it is in french, but basically it says that it uses the truepic V sensor, the same from the eps.

In fact, the new stuff this camera has over the e-3 is a better (fully articulated) lcd, the truepic v sensor, video and art filters.

Very underwhelming, and quite puzzling why they couldn't release it last year.

Which means I guess that the number of E-3's for sale used won't suddenly jump enough to tempt me.

Agreed and agreed. I was hoping for a significant jump in high-ISO performance but there aren't many 4/3 sensor manufacturers so I guess I was dreaming. Bit I'm not dreaming enough to pay 1700USD for this camera unless the actual user reviews indicate a big jump in RAW DR, which is unlikely.
