I shoot almost exclusively on raw, so the Epl1's improved noise reduction wouldn't do anything for me.

It has better noise control in raw also, not just jpeg. I shot raw in difficult lighting condition. And it handles the noise pretty well with the different AA filter.

As Harj noted, if all they do regarding the sensor is insert the EPL-1's into their new flagship camera, that's not good enough. They will be telling us they really are getting out of the 4/3 business. I really can't believe they will do that. I think they really need to provide 2 stops more good quality ISO to remain competitive.

Forgot to mention I have the E-620, so maybe that comment is slightly out of place? I figure that sort of thing should be in all models?

That is a cracking Ad and they should use that craetive agency for all of their work ! You should have seen the ad's they used here in the UK - out of focus pics, really boring subjects and definietly not as creative as that!

Hi Shoturle

There's no doubt that the Oly Ep and Pana G series do have better IQ and detail than any of the E series cams , although the E620 does come close by all accounts. However, the sensors in the m43 cameras are between 12-18months old and if used in the future E-X series would be an improvement over my E3 but thats really not good enough in my book, esp if this camera is to last 3 years before an update. If it does turn out to be true, then this EX should have been released last year in late Oct/Nov when there were many rumours of news of the E3 updated and it would have sold well. To release such a cam now would be shooting themselves in the foot and I agree with Ted on this, that Oly are basically saying goodbye to regular FT and that Oly views m43 is the only way to go. They've not said this (theire m43 lens line up is clear consumer grades) and they have stated that theirs will be a dual system approach but we have to wait and see. My concern is that we may not even see an E3 successor and just an update to the E5XX or E30.

The latest info from 43rumors is that the e-5 will indeed use the ep-x sensors. That is very disappointing and when my time to upgrade my gear comes I will be jumping systems (the kr a strong possibility).

Regular 4/3s is in olympus' backburner now, certainly lower priority than the m43 stuff. There is no other possible interpretation for the fact that the "flagship" of the system will be using a sensor that is over a year old, and, what is more, was already behind the competition back then and is currently 2 generations behind the state of the art in its own system.
