    In some cases....

    In some cases, the new products can only be ordered online, and don't show up in retail locations till a week or month later. I dunno if that was the case here, but since olympus cameras are pretty ahead of the curve in engineering, any new product that puts improved features at a much lower, even entry level prices/models, is news. If your camera isn't waterproof, it can die in rain or even high humidity.
