“If you currently are looking for a small interchangable lens camera with EVF capability then the the GF1 may well be the best choice currently available.“
“Fujifilm is moving to M4/3rds with a new body that will have an EXR sensor inside it. The official announcement about Fuji’s joining to the M4/3 system will be made a few weeks before the camera announcement itself next PMA season (Jan/Feb 2010).
The new camera body –tentatively named: Micro-S10EXR (MS10), will have a 4/3rd 12MP EXR sensor, that shares a lot of its technologies and modes with current Fuji EXR compacts, just in a much larger sensor area and pixel size. The MS10 will be intermediate in form factor between the and the . It will haveÂ sensor shift stabilization, a substantial hand grip, tilt & swivel (similar in design to D5000), and a built-in EVF that is more akin to the EVF’s of Fuji compacts than to that of the GH1. The entire body is made by Fuji or designed for themÂ speciallyÂ to fitÂ the MS10 (ie nothing is cloned from any of the current M4/3 bodies except for the mount & standards of course). For lenses however, the MS10 will have to use any of the available lens options for M4/3. The camera will be marketed with EXR sensor as its main selling point.”
weeks ago Mr. Akira Watanabe said this:
“Journalist: On the possible involvement of Fujifilm, which has signed the launch of System 4 / 3, but has nothing concrete in terms of equipment, and its sensor division, which produces SuperCDD more innovative than sensors fitted Panasonic Olympus equipment.
Watanabe: Olympus can not say anything about its commitments with its official or unofficial subject to confidentiality agreement that it is impossible to break.”
Sounds like Fuji will definitely join us!
Also Sony, Nikon, Ricoh, Samsung and Pentax are working on a mirrorless camera system. But they will all have their own mount (no MicroFourThirds)

Panasonic GF1 on street review …..ohhh! what kind of language is that? Thai!
First GF1 unboxing images http://www.jacobheftmann.com/news/archives/8878
Imaging resource just posted some Panasonic GF1 image samples (with ISO comparisons).
And they also finished their E-P1 review: “It’s clear from the image analysis of our test shots that the Olympus E-P1 has more to its appeal than good looks and a fine form...”
Panasonic Lumix GF1 – studio test photos can be seen at fotopolis.pl
zone-10.com reviews the E-P1
Mark (the owner of which43.com) posted many GF1 versus E-P1 comparisons.
For example take a look at the shutter noise comparison (first set of noises is the GF1, second is the E-P1)
He says “the GF1 is slightly louder and I find the noise more intrusive.” You can download the mp3 audio at http://which43.com/?attachment_id=87
Good job Mark!
