Phase detect autofocus tracking...soooooooo important if you're trying to shoot sports action or birds in flight. That's my #1 frustration with my E-PL5 as well as my E-PL1 before it.

Olympus included this in the E-M1 to satisfy the E-series 4/3 crowd, but they need to expand it to the Pen series because those of us with Micro 4/3 lenses can benefit from it too...especially when it comes to shooting action!

Also, what's the downside of a built-in flash? What were they thinking with the hotshoe pop-up flash anyway? I'm not much of a flash user, but it's always nice to have in a pinch instead of losing in your camera bag, etc. Especially if the pop-up flash controls wireless slave flashes!
