Of what you see, it is definitely going to be an attractive camera.

I need to think about what that means.....

I can see white balance and exposure levels right now with the Pen. What's going to be the difference here? When I change the exposure or white balance, the new setting is displayed, pretty much in real time. I have not played with the art filters so I couldn't comment on that one.

The one thing I do think this all points to is, processing is going to be really intense and this camera is going to require one heavy duty battery to run everything and have any sort of life span per charge. Definitely more than the BLS-1 or BLS-5 provides.

5 days and counting....

Need to develop a plea bargain of some kind, Bob.

I'm not so sure I'd want the lens that comes with it, not with that fstop range. You would think for what the camera is likely to cost, a better light gathering lens would be included with it. Hopefully for those interested in buying this camera, it will be available as body only.

I expect that the "body only" will be in hot demand when it is finally released.

I agree Zig. Folks with M43 systems usually have all the lenses they need/want and do not want to pay more for a lens they likely would never use.

Re: the 5 axis stabilization:
Quote-
"Until now the Olympus image stabilization compensated for “two kinds of rotary movement….yaw and pitch“. But in reality the camera shake is caused by five different motions. The new five axis IS will also correct “horizontal shift“, “vertical shift” and “rolling motion“. The system is perfect for macro and shooting while moving.
No other camera manufacturer did something like that until today. That is certainly one of the areas were Olympus is the leader."
