fixed lens micro four thirds?
3 weeks ago

There seem to be rumors circulating about coming MFT fixed lens cameras, but I couldn't find a current thread.  Anybody have any information?  Even a summing up of the rumors would be fun.

I am looking for a small and light,  though not necessarily pocket sized, camera to carry when I don't have my DSLR.  Role is currently filled by a Fuji X10.  Ideally, my small camera would have a prime lens in the 40-55mm FF equivalent range, but I can work with a small manual zoom. A viewfinder that's not a pop up or an add on is pretty much essential,  EVF is fine as long as it's a good one. Manual controls for all major functions including exposure compensation, please.

One direction I could go, of course, is something like an Oly EM10 with an appropriate prime, but a fixed lens camera has a distinct appeal for the "throw it in the bag and go" job. The larger the sensor the better, of course, all things being equal, so you can see why these MFT rumors are interesting to me.
