Call it the Jekyll and Hyde of digital cameras. A model of the Micro Four Thirds from Olympus was unveiled at a press conference in Germany, and we're in awe of its design. They've has managed to take a throughly modern camera body and tack on a completely retro lens from a classic rangefinder and some leather-like details.

Olympus' unnamed concept model features a two-tone body in brushed metal and a unique "pancake" lens design.

The press conference apparently did little more than give an under-glass peek, as there have yet to be any specs for the new camera. Pricing and availability are also still to be determined, but we'll keep an eye out. We're totally in love with the way retro and modern have come together to make this so unique.
