For me and the new Oly, it will be two ships passing in the darkness.

No BI flash?!? Well, the old SLRs did not have BI flash either...I guess we've become very spoiled!

Yes, the last interchangeable-lens camera I purchased that did not have one was the E1.

Still have it, and I have rarely used the RC mode flash capabilities, choosing to take my FL50R flash off-camera when I need to with the TTL cord. I kinda like the idea of the little detachable flash with this new camera. No doubt though, I bet at least 40% of the buyers lose them within 6 months.

the clip-on flash

........and don't plan on replacing it! lol

The eyepiece replacement (EP-11) is announced too. We will know soon what has been held back until the official announcement, maybe a blockbuster or two they've managed to keep secret.

I'm taking a nap now and the iPAD battery is charged so that I can follow along with the 43Rumors guy while watching the AMA supercross race recording from Saturday night

Bob,

You're pretty pumped up about the new camera aren't you.

Looks like the two new lenses won't be available until later this year. maybe close to the end of the year.....just fine by me. No need to think about how I can buy either of them until later and just concentrate on the camera.

I've been watching several You Tube videos of the new E-M5. Wow.
And I just got an email from Olympus this evening for an offer to pre-order direct from Olympus for $999.
