MisterBG: Looking at the typical tourists around London, I'd say camera usage matches that noted by Jonathan F/2. Lots of DSLR and P&S/Phone cams with the occasional m4/3.
Personally, I prefer to have my cameras made by a company known for its photographic and optical products, rather than its TV's and Microwaves.

What unlike Olympus??

Prognathous: Great. m43 now has 3 (yes, three) fish-eye lenses. It makes so much more sense than to introduce an inexpensive 50/1.8 lens like the ones sold by Nikon, Canon and Sony. After all, what would you possibly do with such a lens on a x2 crop system like m43? A fast 100mm-equiv lens? Useless!

sorry 100mm equiv. and yes still oly has announced that already and pre-orers are being taken...

The peleng is just an adapted lens and the fisheye adapter is just a cheap adapter...

I think there is place for this lens as I for one (I am not alone) intend on buying this as the Panasonic 8mm fisheye is WAY too expensive..

As for fast 50mm well do you want actual 50mm or the FOV of a 50mm??? You have a 20/1.7 and 25/1.4 and for actual 50mm (so 75mm FOV) strange FOV really but we have one too in the 45/1.8 from Oly....

ntsan: This is what I call pocket-able! unlike NEX's humongously huge zoom lens

@Jens_G

Well I assume you mean the high ISO performance and DR of the camera system (u4/3) not the lens LOL..

Now comparing u4/3 to point & shoot just shows you to be a bit of a troll, there is FAR FAR more difference between u4/3 and a point a shoot sensor than there is between NEX and u4/3...

All systems have compromises for many the lens size and selection of u4/3 (and IBIS of Olympus u4/3) is far more important than the incremental DR and high ISO improvement of NEX.. TO be honest NEX seems a bit crazy to me, I have a lot of lenses and having lenses as big as DSLR lenses (or almost) defeats the whole purpose of getting a compact mirrorless camera (YMMV of course)..

patoth66: Not worth buying! The image quality is the same as before! They should have focused more on the image quality, like dynamic range and shadow detail and high iso performance, and not use a 3 year old sensor that wasn't so good in the first place! A faster autofocus is not worth the high price tag! Personally I need a pen like camera for street photography that has manual controls, no video, clean interface without scene modes and art filters! What I do need is dedicated iso and wb functions, and ETTR/Zone exposure mode! And for manual focus lenses the sony peaking mode is the best! A built in EVF would be implemented for that price tag!

I have to mostly agree with YouDidntDidYou though I am not sure what focus peaking means?

Pixel peaking is however an excercise in futility. For me the reason I bought the EP-3 (coming from G2) is the 12MP sensor is good enough for me, for my own pleasure or to sell (still life and landscape mostly). The sensor coupled with their quality metering and JPEG engine is probably good enough for most people but they often look at easily measurable stats rather than real life ability of the camera...

I do appreciate the AF speed and accuracy, unlike all the phase based cameras I have owned in the past (Pentax, Canon and Nikon) I don't have to calibrate faster lenses to try and get accurate (consistant) focus, to me that is major advantage of fast contrast focus as I really don't think we should have to do that..
