I'm rather surprised at the image quality @ ISO 1600, it is much better than I would expect. The wine cask image is pretty good looking and better than anything I can take at that light level.
This appears to be sort of a Canon S95 with a big sensor...interesting choice.
Not been much of a Sony fan, but camera has several aspects that I find very attractive, including being able to do reasonable macro (which all the other larger sensor camera's cannot do.
I hope everyone understands just how interrelated these two companies are with the 4/3rds. I know the flash controls for Panasonic are made by Oly and obviously the sensors for Oly are made by Panasonic. I would guess, they share a lot more items than that. Kill Oly, and it most likely will cause a huge loss at Panasonic and might even kill 4/3rds.
As Panasonic is also not profitable, one wonders how this will end up effecting Panasonic. Say Fuji buys into Oly, and they make Oly's sensors and Panasonic then takes a huge loss in their sensor business.
Even worse, say someone else buys Oly, and just kills the camera division (which would make great sense, as Oly's camera division has been loosing money)?
Panasonic would be hit with huge losses and might also be out of the 4/3rds business.
For Panasonic to not be interested in investing in Oly can only mean they have some other plan.. wonder what it is?
