Default New Olympus SLR Camera?

I talked to an Olympus rep today at a photo shop open house who advised that Olympus will be introducing a SLR body with four lenses this summer - and that the body and lenses will be about half the size of curreint SLR's. Advantage is that the entire set-up is designed to be digital as opposed to using SLR lenses on a digital SLR body per other makes. Body supposed to cost around $1,200. Anyone know or heard anything else? Best - john

It could be the universal 4/3 mount system that they been working on for over a year based on an 'E-20' body:
