Micro Four Thirds is an impressive system. It is ok to have more choices even if it's not priority FLs at the moemnt. m43 is truly the only alternative to Canon and Nikon. All resources now need to be allocated to refining AF with on-sensor PDAF. It can be done, Nikon did it. We need PDAF for both both stills and video. Even if it's just a single center point, it'll do. It is the last remaining gap between m43 and dslr, everything else is way better already (EVF is MUCH more useful than any OVF, get used to it. OVFs are for film, EVFs are for digital).

Support for mobile devices should be the #1 priority. the forum as is works just fine on PCs already. I find it very unfortunate that no mobile support is coming with this new redesign nor there is any timeline for mobile support. Few months, years, never?

is there a requirement that food must be shallow DoF? Wouldn't it be better to have the entire dish razor sharp in focus?? The above photos may look way too blurry to non-photographers

New camera with the largest photosites. Finally, megapixel race is officially over. Waiting for the photosite size to become the next marketing thing (like DR, ISO, etc.)

Canon is smart to limit AutoISO to 1600. I'm glad there is no option to change that. It shouldn't be listed as a con..

Alexsfo: Live View is superior to OVF. I wasn't able to judge colors, WB, exposure, DoF, various color modes, accurately through OVF when I had Canon DSLR (Its live view is unusably atrocious). I much rather prefer Live View full time cause I know exactly how my shot is gonna look like so mirrorless is the way to go. With the arrival of Nikon 1 we now know that on-sensor phase detect AF is a piece of cake so I have no doubt we'll be seeing a lot of tracking and continous AF improvement next year making DSLR even more irrelevant and suitable only for folks who are too old to give up OVF.
Mirrorless is not necessarily about size reduction. We now have a choice of large mirrorless system (Nex) and smaller compact Micro Four Thirds system.

LCD is a type of EVF in mirrorless cameras
