Looks good but...

It will look better when it can do something m43 can't. Integrated viewfinder without hassle/extensions, that's one big plus, can be turned into EVF too, apparently. Clear innovation over small m43 types.

On the other hand, a GF1/EPL1 with high-quality 20mm/1.7 pancake has a way faster lens. Plus lens options of course.

It might be a winner if they have some cool tricks, like high dynamic range and way better than m43 ISO performance. Maybe faster focussing. I think Fuji capable of doing all of these things.

On the other hand, if it only has the viewfinder and "the looks" as distinctive features it is still good but far less compelling.
