This must be the strangest thing that’s ever landed in the Photography Blog office - Olympus have sent us a mysterious package that contains two walnuts in a plastic bag and a “Coming Soon” postcard. Quite what Olympus have up their metaphorical sleeve is beyond us - could it be another addition to their compact system camera lineup, a humble compact or something altogether more nutty? It’s definitely a hard one to crack, so stay tuned for more details as they break…

New version of the XZ-1 (so that the original finally comes down in price and I can afford one)?

Two wallnuts or Futatsu no Kurumi is a short story following 12 year old Ayaka as she is transported back in time.
Could it be? or how I wish, that Olympus would bring out a Micro 4-3 Pen FT

Perhaps Olympus gonna pop round and kick you in the Walnuts for some not so good reviews! LOL!

I think Bernie Wheeler (previous comments) is on the right track. This 12yr girl is transported to 1945. The only camera Olympus had then was the Olympus Six, a 6x6 medium format camera. Digital Medium Format from Olympus?
