I never expected Panasonic to go downhill so fast with its models and Olympus taking the system in the right direction alone.

With bodies AND lenses!

The EP line gets a solid upgrade. 1 camera with great AF, in three bodies, with oddly and unevenly distributed features. 1 great lens in the 12mm, the 45mm that seems a bit of a mystery, a THIRD iteration of their middling 14-42mm kit lens and a second iteration of yet another middling kit zoom. And, I almost forgot, NEW art filters!

As far as the new body designs go, the new PEN Lite and Mini are nice looking. The EP3 is same old same old retro-ho-hum. Remember, retro design IS a feature.

Explain how exactly does this wipe anything by Panasonic?

I'll take the Panasonic Leica 25mm f1.4 over any of the Oly stuff... And I'm buying a Voigtländer Nokton 25mm!
