Further Update: M9 now a rangefinder ... along with GF1, E-P1, E-P2!

Yes, the G1 and GH1 are now described as SLR-style by B&H, but still listed under "SLR Digital Cameras":

Meanwhile, B&H has created a new category of "Rangefinder Digital Cameras" and correctly put the M8 and M9 there, but now the E-P1, GF1 and E-P2 are lumped in as "rangefinders" too, separated from the G-1 and GH-1!:

Maybe when Samsung NX arrives it will be worth adding a new category named something like "Mirror-Free Digital System Cameras", putting all m4/3 together in there, along with Samsung NX and maybe Ricoh GXR and the rumored Nikon 16mm format system.

Since the marketing world has clearly rejected "EVIL", I might have to accept "mirror-free" (used by Panasonic) to refer to the change that reduces bulk, and "system camera" (used by Olympus) to refer to the modularity of interchangeable lenses.
