I wonder if it's occurred to anyone else that the E300 is a bit similar to the old Pen F - the half-frame SLR with the first porro prism viewfinder. The 4/3 system is basically the same as the Pen F (18mmX24mm).But the lenses on my old Pen F ar emuch smaller and lighter than those on the E system.

It certainly occured to me immediately on noting the use of a "porroprism" and sideways-flipping mirror. I do hope that the viewfinder will not be as dark as the one of my Pen FT was. I got a meterless Fv just to "see the light". It would be so sad to leave behind the brightness of the E-1's viewfinder!
