After rumors and numerous teaser images whet our appetite, we're now getting a much clearer look at the Olympus OM-D Micro Four Thirds camera. Product shots detailing the front and rear of the mirrorless shooter briefly appeared on Amazon Japan, though were predictably removed in short order. Thankfully, the keen folks at 43rumors ensured their preservation. As we surmised, aside from a textured band across the face of the camera, its overall design isn't nearly as "retro" as once anticipated. On a different note, the OM-D is paired with an extended battery grip in Amazon Japan's press images, which should come as good news to those who plan to carry the camera on lengthy outings. Pictures don't tell the whole story, as they say, and plenty of unknowns remain when it comes to Olympus's latest. All should be revealed before long — the last rumors we heard pegged February 8th as the date to watch.
