Waited for a month at B&H, but kept checking Amazon everyday...Black OM D on its way. Sold the G3 this week...dumbed down camera: hard time with menus, controls, the eyepiece and screen switching drove me nuts after owning the G1; EVF was a disappointment...smeary screen. I kept my G1 which is worth less than $100 or so used, but worked well (I rarely ever take movies). We'll see about the OM D..maybe I was sucked in by nastalgia for my old OM 2 which was a lovely camera. I own a D7000 (aka "the Beast"...try lugging it around on vacation with some lenses) which I take as a benchmark for functionality. The G3 was so very disappointing in comparison. The OM D has to be better! I'll let you know. By the way I advised a friend to get a Panasonic GX1 which fit his needs to a "T" ...he's very happy, but didn't want an slr "type" camera. I'd find a GH2 if you want to go Panasonic...but that one might be getting "long in the tooth"
