Good point. But that isn't the kit lens. I think you are correct though in that tempting pros was a priority. Having shot the D1 and paying $5400 a body the E-1 is a different camera...gotta luv the nickel cadium Nikon batteries! The announcement in 2001 of the 4/3 sensors clearly mentions pros but also a standard for consumers.

'The announcement of the 4/3" CCD chip design is the first step towards establishing a new standard for future digital camera and lens development for the imaging industry.'
