Kyodo News International is reporting that the new Olympus OM-D compact system camera - which has not yet been officially announced - “will be offered in the United States, Europe and some Asian countries as the top model of the company’s digital mirrorless interchangeable lens camera series”. Citing “industry sources”, the news agency says that the OM-D will sell for “above 100,000 yen [£830/$1300] in Japan”. Offering the company’s in-camera image stabilisation and high-speed auto-focus technologies, the Olympus OM-D will allegedly feature a 16-megapixel sensor and be available sometime this spring.

An Olympus OM-D is only a blast if the camera works with a full frame sensor.
The new X serie from Fuji with his twice so big APS-C sensor will overtrone any 3/4 sensor camera.
In color, resulution and noise.

So Olympus surprise us and come with a Olympus OM-1 D with full frame and only 16MP

I agree, unless it is a full frame sensor, takes the original zeiko lenses, and has an optical viewfinder, there's no point in bringing out an OM-D. It will be a disappointment, a failure, and a mockery to the OM name.
