M43 rumors is reporting that the new Olympus mirrorless will be called the Olympus OM-D. It will be a retro styled mirrorless camera that will resemble the OM film cameras of old.

The real question is will Panasonic drop the boring industrial design with their new cameras like Fuji and Olympus have?
