Default Possible final mock image of EM1

Stumbled on this one on the Em1 3D mockup - not sure if its official but like that it has the E-X finish.

Oh my! I just realized that the black lever with the white strip that they are using for the On-Off switch is copied straight off my 35mm film OM-2. In fact, the straight down view of the top left also is reminiscent of the top left shape of the OM cameras. And back many years ago, the OM-1 35mm camera was originally to be called M-1. But some other manufacturer objected (I think it was Leica) because that firm already had a model named M-1; so Olympus changed the name to OM-1 when it was introduced.
