    What do you guys think about the new 4/3 standard of lenses from olympus and panasonic? the micro 4/3 looks like a cool new setup, utilized on the Panasonic G1. It's getting pretty solid reviews from dpreview and other sites.

    For those that don't know, 4/3 lens is a new lens standard intended to bridge a compatibility gap between proprietary lens mount formats among different camera manufacturers. They also eliminate the single lens reflex system and reduce the size and weight of the camera. While you still have interchangeable lens, the light is gathered straight to the sensor.

    The reviews I've seen have been disappointing and not much more than a point and shoot with interchangeable lenses. Maybe once they mature.
