I would not doubt it if Olympus were bringing some form of the E-400 to the US.

i saw that on a copy of National Geographic from Hong Kong, (which might or might not be different from the ones in north america, i am not sure. they are in english)

on the back cover, there is an Olympus ad on the E1,

isnt that camera fairly obsolete to still have a back cover ad?

My heart skipped a beat when I saw that promo photograph. I thought I was looking at a digital reincarnation of the Olympus OM series. Wouldn't that be something?

Actually, except for the 5MP sensor, there's nothing really "obsolete" about the E-1. It's still a great camera. Of course, at the modern pace of new camera introductions, any camera over 12 months old is almost considered a relic.

You're right, John, and I'm really puzzled and disappointed that Olympus has not followed through with regular updates to the E-1 design. There must be reasons for it, somehow, yet they're difficult to puzzle out. (I don't think speculation helps us here.) I will also be mightily disappointed if, as looks likely, the E-2--when and if it ever gets here--has a new and different body style. The design of the E-1 seems particularly successful to me, really excellent.
