    this looks like it might be my first digital camera. it appeals to me more than the sonys do, even though i have plenty of a mount lenses.
    it all depends on how easy it is to put in hyperfocal focus mode so i can take shots instantly

    Youre saying this is worse than the Olympus? I havent bothered to read all the DPreview stuff and probably wont :hs:

    i read the AF is slow on the olympus and its in need of a firmware upgrade.
    also appears to have over heat issues?

    Im saying low light performance the Oly will be better. I'd be stunned if Panasonic releases a camera worse than an Olympus camera, especially when they had a few more months to work on it. I'm just saying the sensor is old (DPR says it's the same sensor as the G1), and the EP-1 beats G1 at high ISO's.

    Hopefully the LCD is better, it's not sluggish, the focus is faster.. we'll see. 20mm f1.7 is great

    I have an lx-3 and it's great. Super sharp for what it is, and wide too.

    Ah okok.

    I agree that the EP-1 does work amazingly well at high ISO. The thing that would keep me from ever getting one is how slow it is though -.- Especially when you try out any of the 'Art' modes.

    Yeah, when it's in the art mode it's truly un-useable. That's when I would really miss a VF.
