This is a canon forum i understand.
But I think it is still interesting to discuss this from the perspective of a canon shooter (I own a 1d2 with a bagful of L lenses).
While major companies are competing with MP, ISO and screen resolution, it is very interesting that panasonic is coming up something "revolutionary". I am still skeptical about the IQ of the G1 but the DPR team is surely impressed. In fact, one of the trade-off of having the micro-4/3 is without the OVF, but according to DPR, the EVF is really good. It does show the potential of a whole new world here.
Think about Canon putting their excellent sensors in a micro-EOS. And oh, if Canon is to create a whole new system setup, why don't they put the IS into the body... this will surely satisfy a lot of complain. I personally wants a lighter system.
One downside though...no doubt it will seriously affect the second hand value of our existing equipment.
