Except that they have quite deliberately left out two things that would have made their camera a must-have for the target market. EVF and Pop Up Flash. This shows that they have not really been listening to enthusiasts. Manufacturrers so often learn the wrong lessons from research.

Canon G10-style with 4:3 or bigger sensor is what I would be looking for. If Olympus or Panasonic care to do something like that then I'd pre-order one now.

Having an LCD washing out in bright sunlight (making framing and composition very hit and miss) on a hike in the hillls is not an option I'm interested in at all.
