E-P1 in October?

An anonymously posted PDF File on the FourThirds Photo discussion site (which has now been removed at Olympus' request) details a new top-end SLR digital camera, dubbed E-P1, which will feature a 10-megapixel optical lens and a maximum shutter speed of 1/8,000 sec. Originally announced as a prototype in March, the camera also features a splash proof body, wireless flash control, a larger viewfinder, improved low light performance, a dust reduction system, and a highly enhanced anti-shake system for reduction of blur when image capture is not stable. No pricing information for the new camera has been announced, though competition will likely force it to be priced below $2000. The new camera is posed to go head to head against Nikon's D200, which offers a similoar 10.2 megapixel CCD image sensor.
