The body has been modified somewhat, but I don't have pictures. Aesthetically, it's very similar to renderings we've seen up until now. The chassis is overall a bit slimmer and more controls and outputs were added to the "non-operator" side of the camera. The biggest change was that on the side with the big RED logo, they have shown where the "internal" flash can be exchanged with a panel containing the high-speed data port for capturing your images to the external RAID. It wasn't made clear if you get both pieces with the camera but they are swappable. They also showed renders of the newest incarnation of the EVF, which is more stylized (in a good way!) and now has three "user-definable" buttons right on the EVF that you can assign custom behavior for. The advantage to this is that you will be able to toggle displays and/or camera functions without having to set the camera down or even take your eye away from the EVF. The EVF as we have known for awhile now is an upgradable "option," not included in the price of the camera.
