The quiet shutter-thing is something Olympus did in reverse. The E1 has the quietest shutter I ever owned for a DSLR. It's amazing. The noisiest SLR I ever owned was an F2 fitted with an MD2 motor drive!

Wow Greg you've been drinking a lot of hatorade to be saying such about a fellow Texan! Lol. I just posted a link, a rumor at best, but it has me a bit excited at the very least.

I wouldn't necessarily call it hatorade as much as just using a bit of common sense when talking about anything with an electronic finder fitted to it.

The reason why so many people moved from point & shoots to DSLR's....subjects they could not shoot with a point & shoot, for the most part is not addressed by the micro four-thirds system. What you now have is the ability to take DSLR-like picture quality of subjects that point & shoot cameras could take before and you can interchange lenses, but you can't go much beyond subject matter where digicams were usable because of the finder system.

It's still a step down from any DSLR system, and that I am not ready to do for the sake of size....and people adapting manual focus lenses and buying 4-6 of them because they are cheap pretty much have even lost the compact aspect of the micro four-thirds system.

Hey .. now I'm just wondering whether Panasonic has been pulling out the stop for an uber EVF for the M43's at least. I wouldnt put it past them esp with their experience in pro/broadcast video cam's, it might take them a few years but they did surprise everyone with the EVF in the G1.

Cheers

Harj

The only thing I see is that they have the 14-150mm that the European and US market does not have yet. And they have the white epl-1 and new next to the e450.
