CyberAngel: - Just tilting live view display, not fully articulated, which would be also better protected while travelling.
- low resolution display
- Expensive.
? The 240 Hz speed of cheap Contrast Detect AF is needed - let's see if it finally can compete with Phase Detection at all....
+ The extra battery handle sounds good.
+ Love the amount of programmable buttons!
? A lot of nice functionality though Sony has GPS, wireless and (in some models) two Flash cars (one is Sony stick), but still a lot of nice features.
- When do cameras have the USB 3 ??
? Video mode is not up to par, but MOV is a nice touch.
- Have to wait yet another year (or competitors to rule over)
Soon, very soon, digi cameras are "perfect"
+ The best feature is 3D rotational image stabilization.
+ manual zoom ring magnifies live view...nice

AF on the EP-3 has been faster than any entry level PDAF for still shots and low light shots. The ONLY real weakness of CDAF is the lack of 3D tracking, and the 240Hz AF system should help eliminate any problems with that. Since I'm not into shooting kids or sports, I've never been concerned with depth tracking.

I'm most interested to learn what the improvements to bracketed shooting speeds and increased number of recordable images are. Will they squeeze another RAW shot or two out? Faster write speeds to the card?
