    Phil, those were from the 4/3rds Rumor site and based on leaked pricing in Yen.

    yes. outrageous, but the prices will tumble after Olympus stupid release prices. the ep5 was released not long ago at $999 body only. I picked one up today with the vf4 for $888. first shot...

    I'd be interested to know what you think of that EVF Rooz once you've given it a workout. Oh and how the EP5 compares with the EPL5 I think you had before.

    the VF4 is brilliant. nuff said.
    the ep5 is kinda like the d7100 to the epl5's d5100. same sensor and very similar image quality but just that step up in terms of handling and performance. and the 5axis is a thing of beauty.

    Thanks Rooz food for thought.

    Yo yo yo yo. It really has been a long time since I posted here, wow! Kgosden, that double butterfly shot really was great.

    Regarding the E-PM1: There is no comparison with the higher end bodies. The E-M5 is completely different and better in every way except small size, if you like that. I would never consider the E-PM1 now that I upgraded. I would guess you would be pretty happy with the E-M1, probably more so than your E-5, so long as the focus of 4/3 lenses ends up being good. With the smaller m4/3 lenses too, you could have a nice highly competent dual-personality camera.

    I'll get around to some pictures eventually. I have quite a few in the pipeline, but other things are happening.

    Well, the E-PM1 really is my wife's camera, with the benefit of being my backup. The VF4 is very nice. I can only compare it to the VF3 that I own. I still do not care for the whole EVF concept after a week of use on both the pen and XZ-2. Not really thrilled with the m4/3 lenses from a handling perspective. I find them a bit to small so I am always grabbing the focus or zoom ring at the wrong moment. Had to turn off single focus plus manual that I prefer.

    Sounds like there will be some new bigger aperture zoom m4/3 lenses too soon with the E-M1 announcement so maybe those handling issues will be addressed as well. From the forums it sounds like the big reveal will be early next week.

    Can't think of anything worse than larger lens'. If I wanted larger, heavier zoom lens I never would have bought into m4/3

    Not really larger, I just find that the zoom and focus rings are too close together. N it leaves no place to hold that isn't a control surface.
