One of the great things from Olympus is that they really work on details. The new E-M1 will use an “improved” viewfinder that ahs the same specs of the VF-4. The sources didn’t tell me what exactly has been improved but it sounds good anyway :)
Reminder: Same thing happens for the sensor. Based on the E-m5, but without AA filter and PDAF on it.
For sources: Sources can send me anonymous info at email@example.com (create a fake Gmail account) or via contact form you see on the right sidebar. Thanks!

You may have more luck with the dutch language. Fotobooms (Click here) sells the GF3 body for 109 Euro only!
Easy to grab are the daily new refurbished stuff at Olympusmarket (Click here). They keep list new stuff but that time I am not going to link you to every single product. I am too busy at work today :)

E-5 vs E-M1 size comparison image by Paniko (Thanks!).
So, now we know it for sure. There is no new “Pure” Four Thirds camera. The E-M1 is going to replace the Olympus E-5 too. This opens a couple of questions:
1) Was the E-5 the last Four Thirds camera?
2) Is Olympus going to officially announce the end of the pure Four Thirds camera system or will they follow Panasonic route and simply silently abandon the FT camera development?
I hope Olympus can answer these questions in September when they will announce the E-M1.
Meantime this is the question of the day:
P.S.: An E-M1 vs OMD vs E-P5 size comaprison can be seen at Dicahub.
