JackM: At least it makes more sense than a Nikon 1, but I am still waiting for my digital Pentax MX.

What? More sense? What are you talking about, dude? They killed fast dslr AF for what? It is fu...n huge brick like k-5.

Yes, it's a shame, Nikon. At least for now. But you, guys, hold on tight, as samurai, and smile. It will all pass.

PaulRivers: I don't think their "target market" exists. People I know who want to upgrade their compacts either want to get a dslr, or they want to get a single-lens "bridge" camera, neither of which this is.

Other groups this doesn't apply to either - same body size as m43rds but smaller sensor, not small enough to be "jeans pocketable", smaller sensor means worse low light performance, smaller sensor means less blurry background effects, etc etc.

The really fast fps is a neat trick - but not something that regular compact users are going to jump all over.

The only thing I can think this might work is for sports photographers. Maybe the smaller sensor would be an advantage as they would get more zoom out of the lens because of the crop factor.

This camera is worse at all of the existing segments of people who would be interested - small size with larger sensor, low light, blurred background, low price, want to move up but don't want to pay to much, want to move up but not deal with lenses.

ANY crop factor you would give from any image editor for free.

Nelson Tan: What's the sensor size?

Yes. The same crap.
