... But no matter what, it's still a small, compact camera. There is only so far you can push the price/point of that genre. Already, it's priced out of the range of the casual user.

Reducing, instead of increasing, the max focal length and removing the flash also tend to move the M3 out of the casual user's gunsight. This is not a family snaps and vacation camera. I've been asking myself: who is the target user for this model?

I hadn't heard anything about the flash being removed - do you have any links for this information?

It would make sense, though. I can't see how they can add a viewfinder and not give up something if they are going to keep the size the same.
