Case 1: F/2 lens with a fixed prime.
Case 2: F/2 lens with some zoom (28-112m)

Both of these are less flexible than interchangeable-lens cameras, and they cost more.

Is the bigger sensor THAT big a deal? Why would anyone buy this over a E-PL1/2/3, for example?

What are the major players in this? Didn't Sony have one also?
