    The first story is here:
    It looks great, although colour wise it could use a bit more black

    Er… there’s no E-P1 + 17mm kit WITHOUT viewfinder…?
    Would the body + 17mm be 800$ too? or does this kit not exist at all….?

    I’m generally quite pleaed with this camera now.
    But since my very personal financial situation together with other investions has changed (which has absolutely nothing to do with financial crisis),
    I’m probably not going to get this so soon.

    I think it’s a really nice camera, especially I like that there’s an optical viewfinder.

    But for once, I’m really obsessed by tilt and swivel LCDs ;-)
    Also maybe next year OLED displays are ready and the resolution of the current LCD is really quite low.
    On the other hand I don’t know how fast olympus will change something with this camera.
    And I think the price is really good!

    I’m curious what’s micro-mechanically possible with an angle that offers tilt and swivel on a compact camera. But i’m also curious about oly’s not-compact m4/3 and about pana’s compact m4/3.

    Alejandro, I hope you’re happy with the cam and want to buy and enjoy it for your travels,
    maybe there will come pictures from ocassions where you just walk around with the cam (without backpack) and I think it’s clearly the first amazing cam in this format.
    nice day everyone :-)
