On Olympus OM-D E-M10 brings E-M5 down to size news story (53 comments in total)

Are the suggested prices right ? A $100 extra for the kit lens in the US, but £179 in the UK!!!

To answer the question at the end of the article - yes, as I currently only have a simple mobile phone for making emergency calls plus the usual "I'll be home in x minutes". I hope to be picking my galaxy camera up tomorrow, which I purchased to replace my Sony HX20 plus old mobile, assuming that calls would be available on the camera eventually. Meantime, texting and skype will suffice.
I don't really see the problem with using it as a phone - it's the same width and height as the SIII, and smaller than the galaxy note.

Does the shutter still make that awful clunking noise?

"In addition, the camera can shoot 8.3 megapixel stills while recording Full HD video for clear, high-quality still images from recorded video"
So does that mean you can frame-grab an 8.3mp still AFTER recording ?

harrisoncac: It doesn't accept standard SD cards? Going to Micro SD makes thing nasty. If Sony can accommodate a Memory Stick card, they can an Secure Digital card as well.

It's not a memory stick, but a memory stick micro.
