In spite of its accounting fraud, one of the largest in Japanese history, and the upheaval created during the wake of it, Olympus is pushing forward with its new OM-D series. A modern take on the classic Olympus OM series, the OM-D features a retro silhouette quite similar to another new entry to the market, the Fujifilm X-Pro1, and there is still a streamlined feel to the form factor, much like the popular Sony Alpha NEX-7. Purported to have a 16 megapixel Micro Four Thirds image sensor, ISO range to 25,600, a new 5-axis image stabilization, and the ability to shoot 9 fps in burst (faster than the new Nikon D4), the Olympus OM-D is nevertheless quite user-friendly, with a tilt-able 3-inch OLED touch screen display and a full range of lenses to select from. Official announcement and details about this new camera series from Olympus might be available as early as this Wednesday. Till then, several images have already made their way onto the Internet. via: Photo Rumors
