I will say though, that I find viewing through the lcd screen a bit of an issue. I can see why you prefer to use the viewfinder option.
I'm waiting to see what, if anything, Olympus has in store for release at Photokina in September before I pull the trigger on a new lens or camera body.
I was thinking exactly the same, but when I saw the kit for $450, I couldn't resist. The only new thing may show up next year is 1080p. If that's not major concern then there won't be much to regret. I actually regret than I did not buy it earlier.
