Get 8gb, video eats up allot of space. You made a great choice. I it the best EVIL camera on the market currently.

Can wait to get playing with it.

Thanks again for all you help.

Gavin, congratulations. I think you will be more than happy with your cam, I know I am, and i have discriminating tastes

the class 6 4gb is a good start, but if you are going heavy in video, you may want to pick up another 1 or an 8gb. but for the photos the 4gb is more than fine.

also when it arrives, install the software and check that it has the latest firmware. That will insure you have the must updated software which greatly improves the AF system. You can also go to this link to get just the firmware update program if you do not want to use the olympus editing software to update the camera and lenses. You all the lenses can be firmware updated too when attach to the camera.

I have had a LX3 for about a year and a half. It takes very good images. That said, its sensor is large for a p&s, but much smaller than my dSLR. This makes me see the difference between images very plainly.

Going with the EP-1 I think makes great sense. Much larger sensor, ability to interchange lenses. Relatively small. I see no downside here. I would call it a wonderful and very intelligent choice.
