Assuming this is still going ahead, I feel that we should start to collect data about this rover as data released before the launch is often useful later on.

Anything interesting on the new Rover Curiosity you find should be posted here in this thread please.

This one is not particularly interesting except that they give the Olympus E410 camera as technically similar to ExoMars Close-Up Imager. One of the places they test these things - in the Norwegian Arctic Islands of Svalbard.

Integrated ExoMars PanCam, Raman, and close-up imaging field tests on AMASE 2009

Arctic Mars Analog Svalbard Expedition (AMASE) uses Mars analog field sites on the Arctic islands of Svalbard (Norway) for research within astrobiology and for testing of payload instruments onboard Mars missions Mars Science Laboratory, ExoMars and Mars Sample Return. AMASE 2009 marked the seventh consecutive year of field testing.

... In view of the 2018 ExoMars mission, field models of the PanCam and Raman instruments, as well as an Olympus E410 camera having similar technical specifications to the ExoMars Close-Up Imager (CLUPI) were used in an integrated exercise to characterise the geology and habitability of the different field sites
