    “No weather sealing”

    Please tell me this is a typo. That would be a major surprise to me to take that away.

      Actually its not. And you are right there are already two Olympus bodies without weather sealing or 5 axis IS.

        Ah… I now understand my confusion.

        I read to believe through all the rumors that the E-M1 was the new high end not the low end.

        I am personally looking forward to the E-M6, but I notice the last update to that rumor chain is May 20th, I hope it is still in the works. I will patiently wait for some confirmation in another leak. As I am on the fence of purchasing a new E-M5 now if there is a successor or higher end model heading our way in September.
