Default Decision time again on M4/3

Think I need to get another m4/3 camera that is even smaller then the epl-1. I was thinking the GF-3 or the upcoming epm1. I just want a simple camera that fits into my lumbar motorcycle riding pack. I really want to see how much smaller the epm1 is going to be.

I'm really curious about how much Oly has changed. Their AF speed is supposedly a lot faster than Panny's and the E-5. They also have a new imaging engine. I suggest waiting for the new Oly. sounds like its going to be great!

I think it my be a bit of rumor to be faster then the e-5, but if it is as fast a entry level. I would be very impress. And are they are comparing a f1.8 or 2 lens which are the only lens with that AF speed to a dslr with a 3.5-5.6 lens. Put a F2 with a sdm lens on a e-5 and it is very impress AF speed.
