from someone who's apparently never handled a mid-range, semi-pro caliber ASP-C DSLR like the D7000 or 7D. Or even the 50D / 60D.

Thanks for the work. I pray your calculations are off.

Maybe Panasonic plan to market this tank as a 4/3 camera. There's not much "micro" about it.

I fear it's creeping too close to APS-C cams in size and price, just like original 4/3 cams.

I hope those sweet lenses provide the DOF that videographers want. That may be the saving grace.

I've stopped thinking in terms of "equivalent" focal lengths on m43. 25mm is what it is, and what it might be similar to on some other format doesn't matter to me any more. We need to learn what to expect from our current equipment, not keep mapping it to the old. No one refers to their 50mm FF lens as "equivalent to 80mm on MF."
