We've been hearing rumors of a new Micro Four Thirds camera from Olympus, and we just got some new evidence: 43Rumors posted a teaser shot of a new camera, coyly cropped so only the "OM" is showing. There's not much to see from the picture, which depicts a decidedly non-retro camera despite the apparent harkening to Olympus' previous OM series of shooters. We see two dials, a dedicated video recording button, and an Fn2 button (presumably Fn is somewhere else), all on a glossy black body. 43Rumors is also "pretty confident" in the spec list for the camera, which includes a 16-megapixel sensor, ISO range up to 25,600, a built-in EVF, and a tilting 3-inch OLED display. It will reportedly be the first in a new line of Micro Four Thirds cameras from Olympus, and its rumored $1,100 price tag would make it a high-end one for the company. None of this is confirmed, of course, and teaser photos like these always raise our Photoshop alarms, but the evidence is certainly piling up that we're going to see a old-looking new camera from Olympus — possibly as soon as February 8th.
