Phil of Cilcain: The only 'real' premium superzoom camera was the Panasonic DMC-FZ200? Did someone forget the Fuji X-S1? With its manual zoom its a classic.

Fuji xs-1? Nice concept, but worst development. This camera had so many issues, that fuji stop the production and quickly all the remaining cameras dissappeared from japanese shop shelves, despite they proudly show "made in japan" at the debut.

Hello guys! First time i post bere... So many comments! After being a Pentax user for a long time, i switched to m43 (pen). I really like this e-m1, but i hope olympus will make a 4/3 version as well. Same electronics, no mirror, same evf, only a mmf-3 permanently mounted and a built in pop-up flash for the 4/3 customers. Maybe a more standard (modern) DSLR body design will be welcommed by some users.

Gear Acquisition Syndrome (sometimes Guitar Acquisition Syndrome, both abbreviated to GAS) is a term used to describe an urge to acquire and accumulate lots of gear. This term commonly associated with:

Guitarists (tend to acquire guitars, guitar amplifiers, pedals, effects processors)
Keyboard / synth players (tend to acquire keyboards, synthesizers, samplers, effects units, etc)
Drummers (various drums, percussion, drumsticks)
Photographers (cameras and its parts - bodies, lens, mounts, filters, flash, etc.)
Bike accesories (racks, lights, fenders, etc.)

The term "GAS" was coined by Walter Becker in 1996 in his article G.A.S. in Guitar Player[1] as "Guitar Acquisition Syndrome". The term started to be frequently used by guitarists and spread out to other musicians who were familiar with similar tendencies. As it no longer concerns guitars only, GAS is now commonly backronym
