jtwz8975: After seeing this camera and these images I think it's time to invest in a 4/3 system. IQ looks very good now and in a few years, new bodies will be producing excellent results. Just wish they had a faster zoom in the lineup. I'll make do with the nice primes as that is what I usually shoot with now anyhow. The best camera is the one you have with you and this one will be coming with me a lot more places than my D700.
Yes. I have several Panasonic lenses. The 100-300 is a great lens, for example. I use the lenses on an E-PL3. The 20mm pancake is a bit slow, but useable. Don't know how they compare when used on a Panasonic camera. Don't care. It's okay.
For all those who are critical of the slow aperture, my bet is that this lens will be part of the a new micro four thirds weather sealed pro version camera that will have a new sensor we have all been salivating over.
So, just as the E-5 was criticized before anyone go their hands on it, let's wait a bit and see what happens next. Olympus engineering is anything but stupid.
Jogger: no IS = not for video capture
The Olympus bodies have IS.
