Loving the landscape shots (though pretty much every high-detail shot looks like it's been over-NR'ed and then over-sharpened) to the extent that I really don't see how anyone could complain about sharpness and detail. It's just fantastic.

It does, however, reaffirm my inclination that these are effectively going to be "pocketable landscape MF cameras" above anything else. Great for high-detail static scenes that you'll want to print big, mediocre for most other tasks. But man... an EM-5 with the 12-35/2.8 and 45/1.8 plus a DP1m/DP2m would make a hell of a travel. You'd have yourself covered for a decent-IQ zoom, shallow-DoF stuff, and a pint-sized (if slow and slightly kludgy) option for moments when you have the time and want a shot that you can print at enormous sizes. And the whole thing would take up about the same space altogether as my old 5d2 and one lens.
