I just found out the E-P1 will not utilize the focus assist lights of the current Olympus speedlights, the FL50R or FL36R....that's disappointing for what's supposed to be a more serious camera. I see the new FL-14 flash doesn't even have one.

The more I learn, the less I am interested.

I have only used the new FL-14, but I do have a FL-36 here that I plain on testing with the E-P1. I'll be sure to post my findings.

CNET has also chimed in with an early E-P1 review... and it's rather mixed, to say the least:

http://reviews.cnet.com/digital-came...-33704135.html

I must say, it appears the tech geek-oriented (rather than photography oriented) CNET seems to misunderstand both the EP-1 and micro four-thirds in general. Their own testing reveals how good the new Olympus is in terms of photo quality and higher ISO performance - certainly compared with almost any four-thirds camera up to this point and a number of entry-level DSLRs with APS-C sized sensors. Once the price of the EP-1 comes down off its new-product high, it'll be a solid alternative to any megazoom point-and-shoot camera and a great option for a second camera body/system for DSLR owners.

Default Another EP-1 Preview

Funny how different people look at a particular camera design and come up with a totally analysis

This is an interesting read from Imaging Resource and one that comes to a completely different conclusion than Cnet's:

............hey Billy,

Thanks to y'all for the review in typical "Steve's format", tells us what you found and reserve commentary-conclusion for the end with just gentle tire kicking along the way.

As usual when reading the reviews here, I found answers to some questions that I didn't know I had before the read.

While this camera is something I am not really interested in as ownership, I do find it quite interesting to learn about, I always appreciate the reviews here.
