I'm surprised nobody has jumped on the the new E-520 press release yet. I'll wait for the reviews before trading up and probaby then some. There's some nice new features but not enough to make me sweat. Face detection and a larger LCD are not it. Better Live Preview, maybe, but on a tripod it doesn't matter to me all that much. In camera range adjustment is a non-starter for me, I shoot RAW, not JPEG. A .5 second increase in burst speed isn't it either. At one point wireless flash would have been interesting but not with the price of FL50R's.

Now if they tossed in tethered shooting without having to use Studio, a wireless remote with more functions, a better and taller popup flash, and an autofocus LED (instead of strobing the popup), now I'm interested.

I don't know about the E-520, but that new 9-18 lens would be great for backpacking.
