PMA 07: Olympus E-Pro Concept Addresses Its Predecessor's Unpopularity with Pros

Here's the upcoming flagship from Olympus, which is so far just a pheasant under glass, not really anything but a prototype just yet. We don't know much more than what we mentioned earlier this week, namely that it will have an articulating LCD screen, a nice touch to go along with Olympus's live view. Olympus told us that a lot of the pros really like Olympus lenses but don't much care for the top-end Olympus E-1's body—kind of like that girl who has a really nice face.

Olympus says this E-Pro (until now code-named P-1), which will make its big debut in the reality-based world sometime this year, "addresses those concerns." Wander around the gallery below to get a look at this fake body from all sides. So far, it's looking pretty damn good, although we would have preferred larger breasts.
