Oh no! I think I'm about to relapse with G.A.S.!

Francis Carver: At $99 per lens, these two Sigmas will probably sell well. But if it's more than that -- I just don't know.

One year after this comment was made, these lenses are available from B&H for that very price.

Boris F: Canon and Nikon have to join the m43 community!
Otherwise they will find themselves on the Nokia's today's position.
Times when every camera's company develop their own mount's system are over. Imagine to yourself that each computer's motherboard company will develop their own PC extension connections, instead use the PCIe and the USB. And using this way try to limit their customers to chose extensions (lenses) from the only one manufacturer. These times are over! We are in the 21 century now!
Wake up, make better products and customers will choose you. Don't limit a customer by "inventing" new mounts!!!

Don't forget 3rd party M43 lenses... M43 offers more body and lens options than every other CSC mount combined.

Sad Joe: I hope this makes Nikon with their silly 1 series cry!

Why is the Nikon 1 series called the 1 series ?

Because there will only ever be 1 series before they bin the lot and start again

Speed is only part of it.

I'm still waiting for my PZ 14-42mm X to arrive.

I for one am so excited for this camera. I own a GF1 (and GF2 and GH2) and the one thing I've wanted all along was a high-res live viewfinder just like Olympus users had available. It doesn't have to be built-in NEX7 or X100-style in my opinion.

However, I'm surprised that this hasn't been brought up by others. The GX1 looks closer cosmetically to the GF2 than the GF1 (which is no bad thing because that too is a wonderful camera.)

Essentially, the GX1 is a GF2 with a mode dial. I like in the review where they say the flash unit is "very similar to the one found in the GF1." That it may be, but, it is IDENTICAL to the design found on the GF2, same for the placement of the flash release button being further left. And the HDMI outlet on the right. It even has the silly IA button in the same spot. I wish there were some side-by-side comparisons of the GX1 and GF2(perhaps in the full review). Or maybe they won't since so many want to pretend the GF2 never existed. Lol, weird.

Did anyone else notice on the body and design page, it shows the dimensions to be 124mm wide. The GF1 is 116mm wide according to it's review.
