Hards,

This camera may have just bumped the ep-2 off the top of my list for a travel camera. And if the street price is in the low 500 mark, with the lens and adopter I am looking at. The package is a no brainer. 800 with the kit lens zoom, adapter, and 35mm macro. It just save me 500 bucks.

plus the 200 bucks for the evf. Making this a 1000 bucks system. Very nice.

Hopefully the accessory EVF doesn't block the built-in flash from opening! Wouldn't that be about right!

Lets hope not, that would be a dumb thing of oly to do. It would be a real goof, but I doubt it. When I check out the ep2, the evf did not seem that much larger in size then the gf1's evf.

I haven't got too cranked up about Olympus' micro-FourThirds releases to date.

This model has my attention.
built-in flash (albeit probably puny)
9-18mm lens,
14-150mm lens,
optional EVF.

Yep, it's got me interested.

If canon's evil is not up to par with the oly in size and ability. I will be one of the first to get one form adorama in march. I will pay a bit more to get it. It really fits my needs for a light weight travel camera with lens options.

Do note that it seems that there is no control dial(s), and exposure or aperture adjustments may seem to be adjusted via the zoom in and zoom out buttons. But other than that, seems to be E-P1 Mark 3, haha!

And shoturtle, this should also go into consideration for your purchase

Justin.
