I''m fan of OM and still use it, more then my Canon DSLR. Any of OM camera or lens are fantastic. Viewfinder magnification is 0.95 - when contemporary full-frame DSLR have 0.76
I would be happy there will be such a perfect digital camera, with the same bayonet, let it be without AF even.
But if it would be 4/3, then it is all about stile, not features.

Here is an example (in eyeon Fusion):
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7032/6627955493_a9d39d44f7_o.jpg
the photo is merged to itself by Soft Light, The red channel was aplied as a mask of this merge, and the blur is apllied to this mask. You have to copy layer and channel to do this in Photoshop, and this will increase your file size greatly. And can blur your mask only once, while in node system programs you can alwayschange what you need.

Compositing programs are great for editing photos, and those who have deal with them - use mostly themm and not photoshop.
But they have 2 disadvantages:
1. No .crw .nef or any other raw, made by a photo camera support. Thou raw, made by digital movie camera (red one, for example) are supported.
2 Not good for retouching.

So, why did I wrote this?
To let you know, that if you need Automating and Color Corection (which is much better in Compositing soft) - there are fantastic alternative, and how the real automating looks.

Those, who work in post-production studios know well about compositing programs. Thou this compositing software is created for movie-makers, they are great for photo editing, too. Those programs have great advantages over photoshop: parametric node system interface. This has several effects:

1. non-destructivity

2. Great convenience of work, because you work with 2-dimensional node interface, not 1-dimensional layers system.

3. No need in Actions, because the node system is actions itself. Any custom tool can be a set of nodes, which you can copy/paste from project to project.

4. Small file sizes - about 100Kb, while editing photos in photoshop can boost file sizes in 10 times.

5. You have 2 or more screens to compare

6. Nodes can be instances
AND MANY MORE...

Apple Shake
Nuke
Eyeon Fusion
these programs are most good and famous

I don''t understand what for and whom for this camera. While many of photographers are waiting for cameras with big sensor, fast prime lens (interchangable or not) in a small body, seems neither Nikon, nor Canon gonna satisfy us.

I have a powerful 12GB machine for the need of CG in cinema. Many CG studios still use Windows XP 64 because it saves memory for rendering 3D siquences. We don''t need allocating extra processes in memory in Windows 7 to work faster, because it is not faster. It is slower. Windows XP 64 is the best Win OS ever.

I wish it where more noisy. Some noise reduction artefacts are visible.

In reply to:

hb2000: Sounds like some really good new features; however, I'm disappointed LR4 will not run on Windows XP. With web statistics showing 35-40% of Windows users still running XP, I would think that would make a case to not abandon us XP users. Many of us XP users cannot afford to upgrade to Windows 7 just to run LR4, so I guess our only upgrade path is a competitor's product!

I do agree with you. Windows 7 is awful, eating 1GB of RAM, while XP 64 eats 250Mb and much quicker and responsive. Why should we use Windows 7, when it is worse? BECAUSE MICROSOFT WANTS THIS!

NOT Supporting Windows XP, Windows XP 64. VERY NICE! I do have very powerful computer, but I HATE WINDOWS 7 for using 1GB of RAM, instead of 250MB as Windows XP 64. Neither of my 12 GB of RAM are unnecessary.
I feel that Adobe and Microsoft both force us to use this awful and stupid Windows 7. There are much more complicated software, supporting Windows XP 64.

NOTE! This camera, which is supposed to be advanced point-and-shoot, don''t have those stupid modes like SPORT, NIGHT PORTRAIT, etc, which Canon DSLR up to 60D have. Its mode dial, combined with exposure compensation is much better then any Canon DSLR mode dial. What a shame on Canon.

POLAROID 600 SE was a remarkable camera, but not this.

As there must be fast contrast detect Autofocus, we hope to see it ( CD Autofocus) in next APS-C DSLR.
G-series was never a small camera, so its a good idea to paste large sensor there.
