For those of you wanting mirrorless, EVF, CDAF, why haven't you purchased a Nikon 1, Sony Nex or any of the other systems that already do what you want? That's the obvious question.

Kerry, myself & other posters didn't want only contrast AF. The Nikon 1 type hybrid phase/contrast AF with a DX sensor was the preference.

It is not that I want an EVF, mirrorless, CDAF camera - I want a fast, very accurate AF without mirror slap camera.

As to why I have not bought an EVF:

Nikon 1 - sensor is too small

Sony, Fuji - lack of lenses (especially telephoto) & only contrast AF

Olympus - good selection of lenses and getting better but not sure over sensor size and still only contrast AF

Plus I have a lot of Nikon lenses, so ideally would like camera compatible with them.

But I am still thinking about OM-D. And if there was a 100-300 f4.0 lens for the OMD that might prise my wallet open.
