the flash looks kinda huge on it lol. It looks like it has a pivot ball above the hotshoe to let is bounce a little.

It's a neat little camera. It certainly looks like the LX5 but with interchangeable lenses.

One of the pictures in this reiview shows it with a viewfinder. Is this the better viewfinder or the one that is not as good? Also does anyone have any idea what the prices will be for this camera? Thanks

for now only the same VF that the GF1 uses is available. which is of the lower resolution than the built in with the g1/g2/gh1/2, or the vf for the olympus cameras.

it will be released january 24. no word on price yet. but i expect it somewhere in the 599-699 range.

The evf is not great, kinda small. Are you a jpeg shooter, or RAW, and do you shoot in low light?

jpeg, I do not know anything about shooting RAW. Low light sometimes, but also have an xsi that I plan to keep. Actually would be using the other camera for outside probably 80% of the time.
